Please hold Onxy's dear grandson, Brady, in your prayers.
From Onyx over the weekend:
"My 17 year old grandson, Brady is at Georgetown Hospital, Grand Cayman Island, in ICU with severe head injuries .. a distracted driver using a cell phone crashed into Brady and his Dad on their scooter.
Brady was thrown 20 yards. He laid there comatose for 45 minutes before the ambulance arrived from the hospital less than 1 mile away. (Nothing like free medicine).
He has severely bruised lungs and is getting oxygen, and has to be kept highly sedated because of brain swelling and a small blood clot. His Dad is in surgery for crushed knee caps and several other fractures.
DrO talked with his doctors and determined theyre completely competent, (Praise God) and said this is not life threatening.
No internal bleeding, but they have not yet checked for broken bones or fractures. As with all severe brain injuries, until theyre able to bring Brady to consciousness, the extent of the trauma and injury to his brain is an unknown.
If the pressure caused by the swelling doesnt dissipate, theyll have to go in. Just a small amount of bleeding, and the blood clot is small, as of 1:00AM
Update this afternoon (after 6 hrs of surgery):
"The new CAT scan showed it all perfect.
The pressure reading is perfect and the swelling is zero. They stopping the sedation med already!
The doctor squeezed him and he showed a reaction!!!
Praise God. Praying that when Brady is taken out of his medically induced coma, that he will still be Brady - that is what I''m praying for."
We continue to pray for the complete recovery of Thy infant servant Brady and we praise Thee.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, amen.
Onyx, prayers for Brady and his Dad and for you and Dr. O.
Thank you, our Dear God! ....all my best to Onyx.
We prayed in a special way for Brady and his Dad.(((((Hugs))))Fatima
And thanks for the great news! Still praying.
Prayers up from here every day, for God to keep guiding the hands and minds of his doctors, that they make the right diagnoses and decisions, and take the proper actions in his care.
May God also grant strength and peace of mind to Onyx and her family as they await updates -- that's very trying on the soul.
And God Bless you Starwise for helping keep the communications going for all of us during this difficult time.
