This is a note from Allen’s father as to the situation, with an update on the bottom. This child and his family are in desperate need of prayers! Thank you all for your help!
*As you know my son broke his arm really bad 9 weeks ago and we thought this would have been behind us… Last week he had his second surgery to remove the plates as his arm was infected. Even with three plus week of antibiotic plus the 10 days the hospital had given him the first go around we thought this would be over… He did come home late on Sat and his arm looks really good, the hard part is he has a picc line in and we have to feed him 6 rounds of antibiotic each day starting at 5 am. Doesn’t sound too bad but you have to keep this stuff cold so you have to wake up at 4 to set it out then it takes 45min for each dose back to back. 6 times a day, Along with that we have to inject cleaner and non clotting drugs with syringes with each dose one before the dose and two after the dose… feel like a doctor but at 4am its kinda fuzzy… The good news is I have faith that this will past and he will heal and god will see us through… stuff like this builds your strength and helps you understand just how lucky we all are… For five days last week and the past hospital visit 9 weeks ago I got to spend allot of time with children that just want to be normal… if you ever get a chance to volunteer at a children hospital it will open your eyes…
**UPDATE today: Allen started throwing up, his infection seems to be throughout his whole body. Admitted him to hospital last night as his kidneys were shutting down and he is in intensive care! He is only 12 years old!!! And, their only child. He nees prayers! ***
Lord, look upon this child with the eyes of Your mercy, may Your healing had rest upon him, may Your life-giving powers flow into every cell of his body and into the depths of his soul, cleansing, purifying, restoring him to wholeness and strength for service in Your Kingdom. Amen
