Konner Sykes

This is VERY strange for me to ask... but, I had a very weird thought when I was backing out of the drive way this morning... I'm not a parent, but this exact scenario popped in my head and I wondered what I would do in this situation. I guess God was wanting me to be prepared to pray for this family today.

Please join me!!!


* Copied bulletin *
Redwater, TX family

I just got some news that one of our 2nd grade teacher's little boys was accidentally run over by her husband (his dad). He is being air-lifted to Little Rock with extensive head injuries, bad facial damage, a broken collar bone, a broken rib, a collapsed lung, and his arm is broken in 2 places. The doctors are giving him a 50/50 chance right now. His name is Konner Sykes. He's almost three years old. His dad was on his way to go buy his birthday present when he hit him. Please pray. This is a precious, sweet family.



He is in a coma and not responding. Conner underwent surgery yesterday to his skull, lungs and liver. He has broken bones that have not yet been repaired. This is a family in great need of all the prayers and hope we can give them. Please ask everyone you know to add them to their prayer list.


Someone just talked to Amanda and they did a scan on Konner's brain and there didn't appear to be any damage just a lot of deep bruising. They said it could take a couple of days for some things to show up. He is in a coma. He has some retinal bleeding from his right eye and possibly eye damage. He is having spinal fluid coming out his eyes, nose and ears which is good because that relieves swelling on the brain.


They did a ct scan in the night, and there was a little blood in his brain. They would have liked there to be none, but they can work with a little. His liver is healing itself right now. His levels were 1000, now they are 500. They want them to be 100. His arm is in a light cast to keep it from moving. They still have not fixed it yet. Today, they are going to do a full body scan to make sure they did not miss any other kinds of internal injuries.

Ms. Joyce said Amanda sounded better. John was sleeping in the room. She wanted to make sure they're eating and getting rest, and Amanda said they are trying. Ms. Joyce told her they needed to keep themselves healthy so when he gets out, she can keep up with his fast little self. Amanda liked the sound of that.

Please continue to pray for them.

NO UPDATE AS OF 5/7/08 please keep praying, I'll keep you all updated!
