  • family emergency..pls pray!!

    Hi everyone,
    my brother in law was in a major accident yesterday, there was a 20 car pile-up on the highway while he was on his way to work. He got out to help people, and he either slipped or got hit by a car and fell off a 70 ft. bridge. Needless to say he is in rough shape, but lucky to be even alive. Me and my sister in law are pretty close and I watch their daughter (4 yrs old) every day. My brother in law is just an amazing guy. Always willing to help everybody else, no matter what it might mean for him. He is always active and talking too, so its hard to see him in the hospital. But he has a severely fractured pelvis (practically crushed), collapsed lung, broken wrist(the least of the worries right now), possible injured nerves in back, among some other injuries which we arent sure of yet. They cant do more tests and surgeries until he becomes stable. Everytime they tried moving him up until late last night, his body would become unstable again. He is in critical condition. So, to wrap it up for now, the whole family needs prayer rght now. I am picking up their daughter today and she is staying w/us indefinitly. There are some good things too though, his vital signs are slowly returning to normal and stabilizing and the internal bleeding is slowing down, so we will see how he is doing today. Will keep you updated. Just pray!!

      sending prayers and healing energy

      I'm so sorry about your brother in law. What a hero he is!!! This world needs people like him. The waiting for him to stabilize can be really scary, I know. But it sounds like he's got a strong spirit. I hope everything turns out okay for him. It's wonderful that you're caring for his daughter. Big hugs to you and your family. Keep us posted on his progress.

          I hope your brother in-law gets better soon. I was just on the wstm web site and they said seven people were taken to the hospital and three of them has serious injuries. I'm so sorry your brother in-law is one of them.

                  Prayers sent from SC

                  I will think of and pray for your brother in law and your family. That is wonderful that he is the kind of person to help others and disregard danger to himself. There will be a spot in heaven for him (not for a while I am sure!). That is great that your family is close and pulling together, that will also help him get through. Keep us posted!!

                    My prayers are with you. What an amazing guy, helping other people after all that. Falling 70 feet? My hands are over my mouth in shock after reading your story. I hope everything works out. God bless you!

                      I was covering my mouth too. Wow, I feel for you. I will be praying for his family. It really makes you think twice when you are taking things for granted.
                      Hope he pulls through and keep us posted on his progress.

                        Praying everything works out for your family, and that your brother in law pulls through this okay. He sounds like a pretty tough guy to make it through this much already, so keep praying and hang in there.

                            I am so sorry! My thoughts and prayers are with your family and for your brother inlaw. My Dad a massive brain injury and was in critical condition for a long time. The first 48 hours are the most critical. The ups and downs of the first couple nights are the hardest.
                            He sounds like such a nice strong person, I pray that he will be ok.
