I would like everyone to send prayers to our great nephew who is currently in ICU at the hospital and with a 50-50 chance of making it successfully. He is twenty-three with a wife and three small children. They were here on Sunday visiting and while the children were playing together, he thought he would show off for his oldest son with a bicycle.

He went to pop a wheelie on one of the bikes and fell the wrong way with his body landing on the end of the handlebars creating a circle mark on his abdomen right below his rib cage. Had he had fallen a little harder it would have impaled him. He laid on the ground screaming for his wife and then went through changes like having to urinate suddenly and then wanting to pass a bowel movement to which never came.

The ambulance was called because he was screaming in pain. before they showed up he began throwing up. Once he was taken to the hospital, they tried to send him home stating he was having drug or alcohol withdrawals. This man has never done drugs and won't even take a Tylenol. He drinks one beer a day just to relax after a day of hard labor.

Well, he then ended up in ICU when he began throwing up blood and fighting to breathe. His wife was going nuts because she knew something was wrong when he began turning yellow. The ICU doctor noticed his color change and difficulty breathing, so she sent him to get scans and found his abdomen swelling with blood or fluids. He was going downhill fast.

When his wife got back to the ICU unit to see her husband the doctor was waiting for her and stated that he had only one option and that was exploratory surgery to find the problem. There was no guarantee that he would make it off the table and everyone was very concerned. The doctor informed her that he had no other options or he would die.

He was finally put on a ventilator and life support before surgery and while in surgery, they found a hole in his intestines which was leaking into his abdomen. For the first three days in the hospital, they were giving him medication to make him pass a bowel movement which was forcing his fecal matter and urine out of the hole and into his body which made him septic.

They cut out the bad part of his intestines and sewed the rest back together and he is now in critical condition and still on life support. His color is slowing coming back but he also vomited aspirating some of his vomit which is dissolving in his lungs but pneumonia has begun to set in which makes recovery even harder.

Today they will be waking him up and seeing if he can breathe on his own but everyone is skeptical at this point. We will just have to sit and be patient for what the future holds. He is the sole provider for his family and since he has been cut open from chest to groin, they are not sure how they are going to pay their household bills since his recovery will be long.

My husband and I are taking care of their three kids while she stays at the hospital with her husband. She is already stressing about how they are going to pay their bills with him out of work while he recovers and heals. 

I am asking for some help with their financial situation to make sure their kids have a roof over their head and food in their stomach. He is a great father who loves his kids and when he wakes up, the first thing he is going to do is stress and worry how he is going to take care of his family.

Please, if you have a heart and compassion for a father who works very hard to support his family, please donate any amount to help them out while he heals. God Bless.
