I write today with a heavy heart asking for prayers. My sweet second cousin, Madyson (not my niece that lived with us) is in a fight for her life. This past Sunday my cousin's wife, Sonya, and their two daughters, Madyson (4) and Mikayla (3), were in a car accident. One of the rear tires on their pick-up truck blew out and the truck flew off the road, flipping several times.
Sonya was able to get the two girls out and start CPR on Madyson. Once the paramedics arrived they got them to the closest hospital, but quickly had to move Madyson to Jackson, MS to get her the proper care. Sonya, after passing out and being revived, got a clean bill of health. Mikayla had quite a bit of glass in her which they were thankfully able to remove.
Madyson did not fair as well as her mom and sister. At this point we know that she has at least 4 skull fractures, as well as a fractured C4. She sustained liver damage, and an unknown extent of brain stem damage. She is currently still in Jackson, MS in the ICU. Her brain pressure remains unsteady, and her current regimen of medicine keeps her in a coma. At this point there is some signs that her body is trying to breathe over the ventilator, but with her brain being unable to regulate its' own pressure, there is no way for the doctors to know how much damage has been done. We do know there is at least one blood clot behind her eyes keeping her pupils from dilating.
As I write, the accident happened about 72 hours ago. At this point the doctors look for the swelling inside the brain to be leveling out. Please pray that God would supernaturally intervene and heal little Mady! Also please pray that her family would be comforted during this time, especially her mother, as she was driving the car (even though there was no way she could have avoided the accident). Thank you ahead of time for your prayers! Madyson and Caleb are nearly the same age, and I simply cannot imagine having to watch my little boy suffer in this way!
All my love!
