Keep Praying for Konner
Konner had a good day Wednesday. His pressure stayed low & the results of the body scan showed no additional injuries! He is in a medically induced coma because they know he would not be able to bear the pain if he were awake. I heard he did try to wake up night before last, but they want to give his body time to rest & heal without him feeling the pain.
Please continue to pray for Konner, John, Amanda, Brooklyn & Morgan.
URGENT UPDATE 5.8.08
Konner's pressure was at an 8 this morning which is good...it went up this afternoon & they were not able to get it down with medication. They took him in for another brain scan.
He still has good vitals & his liver is healing on its own. Continue to pray...although this is great news, he is still in critical condition.

Just found out that the scan yesterday afternoon revealed no bleeding & a little fluid, but not enough to drain. The pressure was still high because of the swelling of the brain & the medication was not working as they had hoped. They will continue to give him the medication in hopes it will do some good.
Thank you for your concern & prayers! Amanda & John have asked that we pass on their appreciation for all of the support!
SECOND UPDATE 5.9.08
Konner's pressure (from the brain swelling) stayed high through the night, so this morning they put a probe on the left side to measure the pressure. It was the same as when it was on the right, so they are just waiting for it to come down on its own. The medication is still not working as they would like. His vitals are still good.
