Please pray for Max
Saturday, March 26, 2011
I am in the middle of a very difficult time. My stepson Max, age 23, was at work when there were some drunk patrons becoming violent. One of them punched the manager. Max was helping to get one of them out the door when he fell down two stairs backwards and hit his head on the cement sidewalk. He became unconscious and is still in a coma. There is significant brain damage, specifically damage to the brain stem.
Please pray for a miracle in his recovery. This weekend will be crucial. We are also getting a second opinion, hoping that somehow they will give more hope than we have been given so far. Pray that the doctors will have wisdom to accurately diagnose his problem and that the family will all come to unity in the decision of whether to remove life support. Also pray that I will be able to stay strong and offer comfort and spiritual support to the other family members while I am also grieving for the stepson that I was just beginning to get to know. Here is a picture of Max and one of him on the far left with his siblings, me, his father, and his grandfather.
Thanks for your prayers!
