I need prayers or whatever right now!

Postby Nik Colon » Tue Aug 11, 2015 12:53 am

I don't know the details but my nephew got in a car accident and is being airlifted to the hospital for surgery. We have no other information right now and his sister is driving there. I will update when I know more. I did not want to post this on fb but I needed to talk about this. Please pray or whatever you can that he will be ok. This is my brother who committed suicides son, we can't lose him too! I'm so scared!

So, somehow he hit a medium and then a tree, he was drinking but not extremely intoxicated and did get dui. He has facial wounds, the head rest came off and punctured his shoulder and his back is fractured. They are waiting til tomorrow to decide what to do with his back. He is critical but I'm praying things will get better. Thank you all for listening and being here for me.
