A special fast

Over the years, I have been impressed with the members of the Bloggernacle who have reached out to those in need.

Today I am posting a request from one of the people I home teach to join in a special fast for a family member injured in an accident. Here is the text of the email she sent me today:

Hi everyone,

Melody and Brett’s oldest, Carter (age 15), was hit by a truck at 9:00 this morning while riding his bike.  It was the truck’s fault.  Carter was not wearing his helmet and has sustained head injuries.  He is in the UMC trauma center pediatric ICU.  His vitals are good but he is in a coma and has been unconscious since the accident.  He has had a CAT scan but Melody is waiting to hear from the neurosurgeon as to the results.  I am going to go to Las Vegas later tonight.

Mike had a great idea to have a family fast.  If we ever needed one, it’s tomorrow.  Their names have been called in to the temple here and Mike and Diane have called their names in to the Snowflake temple.

I’ll keep you posted as I hear anything.

Please keep Carter and his family in your thoughts and prayers. The family appreciates those who can join them in their fast tomorrow.

  1. The good news is that young patients are often stunningly resilient in the face of traumatic brain injury. God bless.
