PostSubject: Prayers for Cole, please.   Sun Jun 15, 2014 7:50 pm

I posted this on Facebook, so some of you have already seen this. My boss's son, Cole, was in a very serious accident this weekend. He's in ICU with a fractured skull, bleeding (and swelling) on his brain, a broken wrist, two broken ribs, road rash all over his body. He's in a medically-induced coma right now. I know that my boss and her family would deeply appreciate your prayers - and so would I.

Thank you so much, everyone! Teresa, Cole is 16.

They told his mom that he'll be in ICU for at least another week, but they ARE allowing visitors. This is HUGE, because they hadn't given her much hope for his survival at ALL. He isn't out of the woods yet, but at least they're giving him more hope. There is SO MUCH power in prayer!!

Praying for Cole! This is SO scary. My Josh was also into skateboarding and I was SO scared he would end up in a nasty accident. Always grinding down stair rails, trying to get the biggest "air" and etc. He also was into BMX bikes and we fussed ALL the time about him wearing a helmet! He didn't like them, and refused to wear them.....he didn't race the bikes, just like doing the jumps and flips....yeah, he needed a helmet, and the one time he came into the house with a HUGE goose egg on his forehead, he realized, mom wasn't that dumb after all.  Blue

Keeping Cole in my prayers, and his family too. I can't imagine the worry they are going through. No

loveheart Thank you all SO MUCH!! Shannon's last update said that Cole has been given a feeding tube now. He's surprised the doctors already, because as I mentioned, they didn't expect him to survive the night that first night that he was brought in. He still has a long road ahead, but he's stable, and appears to be on the right track. Thank you for your continued prayers!

Thank you all for your replies and your prayers! It's so wonderful to know how many people are praying for Cole! Here's Shannon's latest update:

For now...depending on if Cole stays going in a positive direction, they are taking him off the med that has him in a coma. We may start to see some small movements from him! He will still need to be in a relaxed state, so they will still have him under, just not in a coma state. Still continue to pray friends! God is moving!

Shannon's latest update:

Just met with Coles Neurosurgeon, please pray that Cole would start showing signs of waking up. He should be, and he's not yet.
Please pray also that the meds he will be starting for his blood clots will not cause more bleeding to start on his brain! In Jesus name!

I remembered him in prayer...I sure hope he can listen to the voices that want him back. Thanks for keeping us posted Lisa.

The latest news on Cole:

Sorry I didn't update yesterday, too much going on. Today Cole is doing more breathing on his own, he is actually breathing faster and doing spontaneous coughing. Doc says his brain is having to re- set itself, thus causing high temp, quick, shallow breathing and elevated blood pressure. But all and all these are signs that he is sllloowwlllly starting to wake up. Looking forward to seeing more signs of him waking up today. Thank all for your continues support and prayers. Thank you soooo much to all of you who have provided meals, you have no idea how much Tom and I appreciate that!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thank you SO much for all of your prayers and concern! It's deeply appreciated.

Wow, that IS encouraging! It's a slow process for sure, but at least he is progressing. I hope he awakens soon!!

Thanks for updating us regularly Lisa! Cole is on my mind and in my prayers.

The healing process is rarely without a few backward steps, and it seems that this is one of them:

Just met with Coles Doc. Seems Coles not ready to come out of sedation yet. His neuro storming is causing too much stress on the inside, so....they are putting Cole back under sedation for at least another week to allow his brain more time to heal. Please pray for the needed healing to take place during this time. Thank you!

Oh, I am so sorry to hear that. Blue  I hope that he will be ready to come out of it after this week.  Prayers are going up.

Smiley Hug Thank you for your prayers, all! And thank you to each of you who have taken time to pray, whether you've had a chance to post here or not.

Cole is being moved to floor 7 tonight, which is not an ICU floor. (I'm far too familiar with the hospital that he's in.) But Shannon mentioned that the floor is being redone in the ICU...so I don't know if he's still "officially" going to be in ICU, and just has to be moved because of flooring issues, or if he's actually going to be out of ICU. I sent her a note, asking her, but I haven't heard back yet - and I'm off to work soon, so I won't know at least until tonight.

*happy sigh* Some good news. Here's Shannon's update this morning:


So, they have to intentionally sedate Cole occasionally, otherwise he might just jump out of bed! Lol! There are talks of possibly taking out his breathing tube today as long as he continues to breath strong on his own! I'm trying to not get my hopes up too high....but I am very excited to see him responding!

loveheart Cole is officially out of ICU, off the feeding tube, his catheter is out, his breathing tube is out, he's awake and talking, AND he took his first sips of thickened apple juice last night. What. A. Miracle. Thank you for your continued prayers!
