A Familiy Needs Your Prayers

Saturday, April 05, 2014

Igot some good news yesterday evening.The initial reports on Matt's crash were exaggerated.He didn;t fly through the windshield.He climbed through it to get out of the car. Then he passed out face first into the dirt....and he aspirated some of the dirt and that was what was causing the respiratory problems.They put him on the vent I guess to somehow clear out his lungs.And as for his hip....the ball part of the joint broke off.He is having surgery to get a new hip on Monday. All in all the news is good.....but still keep him in your prayers if you would.Thanks. OH I just got an update on Matt. He is having coronary issues from a congenital heart ailment that was heretofore undiscovered. They think he blacked out in the car and that's why he ran off the road....and why he blacked out into the dirt. They are very concerned about the possibility of blood clots. He has three cervical fractures and a fracture at T8...he's not even allowed to lift his head off the pillow. This is going to be a very serious situation. and it's going to be at least 6 months before he will be allowed to walk.I spoke to his mom , Mary Sue at length this afternoon. She desperately needs a car. Pray for that. Pray for Matt's heart and for quick healing of all his fractures.

I know this is not Spark related, but some of you volunteered to pray and I wanted to up date those people....and if any more of your wish to hold this family up in prayerI know they would appreciate it. Matt's Father,(my friend Mary's husband) killed himself about a month or two ago. Now Mary is without a car...Matt just lost his partner who took his little daughter with her. It's been a horrendous time for this family....I want to cry just thinking about it.
Thanks for your prayers.

    Thank you all for the prayers. The Bible says "where two or three are gathered in My name, there I am, in the midst of them"....this is our gathering place and I know the Lord is listening to the cries of our hearts.

    So very sorry to hear this. Just horrible :( I am really surprised the heart condition went unnoticed. My brother's wife's sister just underwent surgery to repair five holes in her heart. Normally, they fix this congenital stuff when its first discovered. Why they waited and let her have a heart attack, don't know. She had heart troubles her whole life!! It was just day surgery as they went in with just a catheter through the vein.
    I hope Matt makes a complete recovery. Poor Mary, so much in one family :(

    Cynthia, I have been praying for Matt & Mary morning, noon & night, as well as during Mass. Hoping the cervical fractures heal well and the injuries and heart problem can be treated successfully. He and his mother have had such a terrible series of losses and tragedy.
    Praying for you too. God bless.
