Prayers Needed and Requested for petitfour's 13 YRO Son Michael Hit by Car on Way to School
FREE REPUBLIC | October 7, 2013 | onyx

Posted on 10/07/2013 9:15:57 AM PDT by onyx

I've now received two urgent FR mails from my good FRiend, petitfour this morning which read, in part:



"We are in ER waiting to hear from doctors. Our 13 year old son was hit by a car on his way to school. He has: Broken leg and head trauma, and that is all we know. Please pray for him and the hospital personnel. Thanks!"

Followed by this update just a few minutes ago:

"We're still in the waiting room. Michael is in ICU in serious but stable condition. They were doing X-rays and other things. His face will require a lot of surgeries. I am as calm as can be and taking this one issue at a time. He is alive and has no brain swelling. We will go from there. He has his daddy’s genes which means he is a fighter."



Dearest, sweet petitfour was reluctant to ask for a prayer thread, given Jim's surgery and all, but praying for one another and our precious family members, is a huge part of Free Republic.

Please pray for petitfour's young son, Michael's complete healing and total recovery and for his loving and very concerned family.



Lord hear our prayers.



Please address your messages and prayers to petitfour, not me.



Thanks so much. May God bless and keep you all.

Your son and all your family will be in my prayers, petitfour! (Every day I worry that one of mine will run in front of a truck. Look both ways, us?)

Hang in there!

Lord, look mercifully on petitfour, her husband, and all her children. Michael needs you. Make it all better. Amen.

Prayers lifted for your precious son! Please keep us posted. My late mother was hit by a car years ago steeping out of her car on a road. Long recovery, but she made it through. She was a fighter too. Keep the faith and stay strong.

Thank you all for your prayers! Michael is in the hands of the Great Physician! We have a great team of physicians and nurses taking care of him. They have prayed with us and over our son. He remains in stable condition. He has multiple fractures to his face. There is little brain swelling if any. He has a broken femur, but we are more concerned with the facial injuries at the moment though that does not mean the leg break is not serious. His vital signs are good. This will be a long recovery process.

Please continue praying for Mikey and our family. Thank you all so much and thank God for having some angels on the scene when this happened!

Prayers humbly offered for the swift and total recovery of your son, Michael. May God guide his
doctors’ hands to restore him to good health and wellness. May he indeed be able to come back
from these injuries stronger than ever, and may your family live a long and happy life together.

Heavenly Father, we offer these prayers in the Holy Name of Our Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen.

What a terrible tragedy for Michael and your family to endure, but like you said and like we know and believe, “Michael is in the hands of the Great Physician!” Praise God!

We’re all continuing to pray for Michael and you, his very concerned and loving family.

Blessed is God, the Greatest Physician and He is guiding Michael’s great team of physicians and nurses caring for and praying for him.

I can’t ping the whole list on this phone, so I will post to you, dear friend. Mikey is scheduled for surgery on his broken femur this morning. They were going to wait on that, but have changed their minds for some reason. I have not seen the doctor and only know what the nurse has said. Michael is resting comfortably at the moment. Thanks for the continued prayers!

Thank you so much, dearest petitfour.

I just pinged the list of everyone who prayed for your cherished Michael, so I'm sure they will read your latest update.

Extra special prayers for Michael's successful surgery this morning!

Lord, hear our prayers.

Update on the update. No surgery today. The head of the orthopedic trauma team is sticking to the original plan. He wants the best doc in region to do this surgery. Will update when there is more news. Right now Mikey is stable, and that is great! Please keep the prayers coming. There are so many moving parts in this healing process. One thing at a time! Thank you all for your prayers and support!

NO surgery today, so that means Mikey can eat, right!

Our serious and faithful prayers continue for him and for y’all.

Please give him our love, too.

Thank you! He is not conscious, so no eating. I don’t know when he will be able to eat again because both jaws are broken. Like I said, one thing at a time. We are thankful he is alive and that he has no brain trauma.

Oh dear God, he's NOT conscious!

Mikey's condition is far more serious than I imagined or knew!

God bless him and God bless his wonderful doctors and nurses who are also praying for him and taking such excellent care of him.

Please let us know when his surgeon will be brought in and his surgery will take place. We'll pray extra special that day. I'm so glad they're bring in the best in the region. Praise God!

They are keeping him sedated so the swelling in his face can go down and he will not feel the immense pain. That is a good thing. He needs time and healing and a few surgeries to help along the way. When the say he is in serious condition, they mean it.

Per Post #80.
It's tough to have to go through such an ordeal. Some times one must remain still and just keep the faith things will work out within HIS perfect will as prayed upon.

Philippians Chapter 4 comes to mind dear ladies:

6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Take care. George
