hi, so i’m pretty new here…i haven’t posted much. I don’t normally do this, asking for people to pray for someone, but i feel like i need to. This weekend has been a tough one. I got back from a funeral upstate yesterday only to go to work and find out one of my closest friends was in the icu. I originally heard that he was in the icu from a car accident, but that was only the beginning. Early saturday morning he left a friends house to drive home (i’m guessing there was alcohol, and probably weed involved at some point hours prior to this), and on his way home he ended up off the road and in a field. After his car crashed into a fence he called a friend to see if she could pick him up. she couldn’t so he ended up calling his dad. she said he sounded ok on the phone, and stayed on with him until his father got him and they reached their house…she said they were laughing and talking non stop. after he got home he hung up the phone. at some point he wrote on facebook that he loved all of us that mattered and that he really hoped that it took this time. a few hours later the friend got a call that he was being taken to the er.
so after a few hours she called the er to see if he was ok, and they said he was stable and was moved upstairs, so she decided to go see him. only when she got to the hospital they told her that he was actually put into icu after the er…she was able to see him for a minute, and when she did she said both of his wrists were bandaged up. (a few weeks prior to this he had scratched at his wrists but nothing enough for them to bleed or anyone to take notice…we didn’t even noticed until thursday when the three of us went out for a after drink work and he told us what he did) she also said that he was put into a drug induced coma, because he was having difficulty breathing, and had to be hooked up to a machine to help him breathe.
so she’s thinking that he slit his wrists, as well as overdosed on something. which i agree that if she talked to him after the accident that what else could it have been. but this guy isn’t the type to go slitting his wrists and oding on meds. (but then he wasn’t the type to smoke pot until a month ago either). i’ve known him for almost 8 years now, it’s completely caught me off guard. since i had to work last nite i haven’t gotten a chance to talk to his mom, our one friend from way back when was down there at the hospital tonite to keep his mom company, she said the tests have come back ok, its just a matter of him breathing on his own again. the doctor thinks he’ll be ok in a week, but idk i’m so scared of what might happen to him. he’s had a rough year with family problems, and loosing touch with 2 good friends, and well some personal problems too. he’s turned to things he never used to in the past.
so if someone could just pray for him. he’s a good guy who’s just gone astray. i just pray that he makes it through, and that he finds himself again.
