Urgent Prayer Request

My teenaged cousin (first cousin's son) is having an extremely urgent medical emergency! I don't know whether I can share personal information, but I'll try to communicate cryptically. During orthopedic surgery, everything went bad. He was taken from the surgery center to a hospital by ambulance, in an induced coma. He's in ICU . . . for . . . this is the third day, and today things aren't doing well. At all. It is really frightening. Please pray. Please, if you feel led, ask anybody that you know to pray for him! He's just 18, a strapping high school athlete. Thank you, thank you, thank you! God bless you for your willing heart!

Update: May 1 ~ Oh, Dear Ones! Finally, Praise God! There is good news to report! Here is what his Aunt has just posted on Facebook:

" A happy update....I got to go in and see him last night :-) even got to feed him some cookies & cream candy bar....his request...he is doing much better today...hoping he will be out of ICU today...things are looking up. Thank you for all the prayers and well wishes!"

How I have hoped that this is what God had planned for him! Praise God! Praise God! Thank you for your prayers, and your continued prayers! Thank you for blessing our family with your caring hearts!

Another Wonderful Update from the young man's Aunt! Also May 1:

Just got back from the hospital...He is out of the ICU and into a regular room...he is doing much better and if he had it his way he would be going home in the morning :-)

Much Love! ~ Debbi
