Prayers for Austin

$3,896 of $6,500 goal

Austin Seymour was airlifted to Minneapolis, Minnesota  for injuries suffered from hypothermia and frostbite.  He is currently in the ICU Burn unit at HCMC (Hennepin County Medical Center). Traveling between North Dakota and Minnesota will be costly for the family as it is over 300 miles each way. There are many other treatments and therapies for Austin in the future, the road to recovery could be long and painful.  We are asking for prayers, positive thoughts and well wishes before all else, and please consider a donation if you are able.

Sorry it’s been awhile since I’ve posted an update on Austin.
We were told in the beginning of his recovery that if amputation would be needed it would most likely be months down the road.. well summer is almost here and Austin had surgery on Monday. He developed an infection on the tip of his index finger, which exposed some bone and required a partial amputation.
Austin remains in good spirits and is seeing this as a bump in the road for his recovery.
Thank you all for your continued love and support!

We wanted to update everyone in Austin’s recovery. He did an interview with the local TV station on his recovery. He did a great job! Thank you all so much for your love, support, and prayers!

Thank you for your continued prayers. Our family appreciates all of the support we have received, especially the encouragement given to Austin.

He appreciates ALL of the cards, mail, and gifts sent his way! He LOVED the drawings/get well cards from our churches primary class, as well as the paintings from Gina Capodanno who arranged for a whole Kindergarten class from Manasquan, NJ to write to Austin.

Austin’s left hand is healing so nice and he was able to take off the bandages. The work begins with that hand to reintroduce touch sensation, as his nerves are hypersensitive, as well as waiting for his fingernails to grow back. Austin’s right hand is taking longer to heal, and skin grafts will be needed to help in the healing process. Thankfully the only finger that may need partial amputation will be to his right index finger... and that’s only a possibility - Praise God!

Please continue to pray for Austin, as surgery is the next step in his healing process, which will be followed by physical therapy. ❤️

THANK YOU for all of the prayers, love, and support you’ve shown to our family! Austin is being discharged from the hospital today. We’ll be staying at the apartment, provided by Firefighters for Healing, until he’s completed his hyperbaric treatment. Our weekly trips to see his burn team in Minneapolis will begin next week.
Again, thank you!
