Default Prayer request....

Hi everyone,

For those that are inclined, if ya'll could say a little prayer for my Brother-in-law Chris Holman before you go to bed tonight, our family would sure appreciate it.

He suffered a brain aneurysm last night/this morning and things aren't looking too good. He's got a wife and two wonderful daughters (middle/high school age).

Even tho he pulls for the wolfpack, he could use a few prayers from Gamecock nation.

Thanks everyone. Hug your family extra tight tonight. You never know what might happen to you.

Lonnie.

Thanks everyone. Still a mixed bag on the test results, but he knows his wife (My wife's sister) and can squeeze her hand when she asks. It also looks like the bleeding has stopped. That's the encouraging news.

He never made it to bed night before last so how long the episode lasted and how long he was out (and how much damage was done to the brain during that time) is still unknown.

Here's a pic of his family, Wife, His Mom and Dad, and two girls. Just to put a face to a name.



As I said, thanks again.

Lonnie.

HI Everyone,

I got a PM from one of the kind folks here and thought I should update the thread. This is a cut and paste of my reply, sorry for being lazy. :)

My Brother in Law is doing as good as can be expected. He survived the "critical" (acute life threatening) stage of the attack, and he's now in critical, but stable condition at Baptist in Winston.

He's awake, and alert, but like a stroke victim he's got limited movement on one side and isn't talking or anything like that yet. They hope to have him moved to a rehab facility in 6-8 weeks. My Dad's a (retired) physician and he said that's unbelievable progress.

All in all, it's a miracle that he survived at all. His family have a long road ahead of them, but at least he got to see his girls and his wife again.

Everyday is a blessing and never take your loved ones for granted...

Thanks again for the thought/prayers/concern.

Edit: Here's a FB update from my sister in law...

Quote:
He has an infection-not sure exactly what it is, but have narrowed it down to a couple of things that are easily treatable. He's ran a fever almost every night which makes for very restless nights. He's alert and responsive, and best of all he gave me three hugs yesterday. Made my day! Right now he is receiving his first physical therapy and we are excited to get this started. hopefully, we will be moved out of ICU today or tomorrow. I am cherishing and celebrating each day and step toward a full recovery. It is going to be a LONG road and a difficult one, but I am thankful for each milestone we cross and all of the prayer warriors we have out there. You will never know what those mean to our family. I have been telling him about all the people praying for him and it means a lot to him too. I cherish each message, call, prayer that you have sent for our family. God bless each and everyone of you. GOD IS GOOD!

Good to hear that he is progressing, encouraging news!! Thoughts and Prayers will continue for him, his wife, and beautiful girls, as I know that it will be a long and difficult road in the days ahead.
