    Default Prayers needed

    I haven’t been around much since the pandemic-I needed to get away from social media and finger pointing. But I am back with an urgent prayer request. My 19 yr old nephew Noah was accidentally electrocuted at a pool party on the 4th. He is currently in a coma, in a cooling state. They will start warming him tonight and hopefully his body responds and he doesn’t have any body/brain damage. His friends were able to give CPR immediately and the ambulance was there within minutes. His pupils were dilated and he had a pulse. He somehow tested positive for Covid (no symptoms) at the first hospital but has since been transferred and they will retest. Because of that my brother and sister in law can’t be with him. They are in the process of getting a lawyer to fight this. Any prayers would be greatly appreciated.

    Updated 7/11-It's been a week now since the accident. Things are moving very slowly. A few steps forward and a couple steps back. He goes down on needing additional oxygen, then later on he needs it at 100% again. He is doing better on his stomach now, but they want him to get stabilized on his back continuously. They still haven't been able to do a neuro exam, he needs to be off some of his medications before they can do that. He did get an MRI done which has shown some brain injury but they won't know the extent of that until they can do the neuro assessment. So we can still use more prayers that he can stabilize his breathing and get off his paralytic medication so they can do the neuro assessment. They have been trying different medications for better outcomes. He continues to show pupil reaction and did show pain awareness on his feet which wasn't seen earlier in the week. Thanks everyone
