My family is in need of a LOT of prayers over the next few days. I ask that you forward this message to anyone and everyone that you can in any way possible.
Our oldest son drowned Saturday afternoon. We were setting up for his birthday party when he got out of sight while he was outside. When I rescued him from the water, his lips were blue and fluid was bubbled up out of his nose. My mother-in law, who is a nurse, and the paramedics had to work really hard to resuscitate him. They got him back, but it took a long time.
He is now in the PICU at the NE Medical Center in Concord, NC (Jeff Gordon Children's Hospital). His vitals are stable, but the next several days are going to be crucial to how fully he recovers (CT Scans, Neurology Tests, etc.).
Please keep us in your prayers. I'll try to post updates when I can.
