Default for a friend

some of you may remember a friend of ours who had a neck injury just less than two years ago. this young man is paralyzed from the neck down, with just a little movement in one hand. he was feeling optimistic and undergoing rehab, but has had some big setbacks. he hasn't gotten more movement back like he's hoping for and a few months ago he got a staff infection from a bedsore and has to lie on his stomach most of the time while it heals. Since the accident, he moved in with his parents and is now 3 hrs away. We've heard that he's been feeling pretty down, so dh went to see him today. dh took some seeds and pots and soil and planted some stuff for our friend to tend to and watch grow. please pray for this young man. I can't imagine what day-to-day is like for him.

Praying for him! You are good friends to make sure you keep in touch with him and make the extra effort to visit and raise his spirits.

I'm so sorry Mara. Praying for your friend, and his family. I know this has rocked their worlds.... my cousin was in a car wreck in 1990 (at age 30).... I've lived it, so I somewhat know what they are going through.

dh said he was in good spirits and is healing, though another bedsore is appearing. the guy had ordered some special foam for his wheelchair and it arrived while dh was there and they got his chair outfitted. they planted a bunch of hot peppers (that's what he wanted!) and the family cooked out on the grill in the evening. I just feel like an extra boost of prayers can't hurt!

My prayers go out to him and his family. This is really tough for all. Have they tried to place duoderm on the bedsores? To provide cushion while allowing it to heal.
