Story

Michael was in a car accident on Sunday 13th November. He sustained major lung damage, broken neck with spinal cord damage, various other broken bones and burns.

Michael has been critical all week but he is making small improvements. On Monday he was able to move his limbs which was a major relief. Once he is stable he will require surgery for his neck to ensure no further damage to the spinal cord.

Michael has 3 sisters who are mother figures to him since the sudden death of their mother Paula just 3 years ago age 44. Their father Timmy also passed away 7 years ago age 46.

The 3 girls have a long journey ahead while Michael recovers from his injuries. Family will be helping financially as best they can to help with their expenses and anything that michael may require over the coming weeks.

If anyone would like to contibute it would be much appreciated.

Please keep praying for Michael.

Thank you

    Hi everyone. Michael is definitely on the road to recovery. He is in a lot of pain but all his stats are good and he is chatting away without any confusion. Today he is having skin grafts on his left arm, his other burns are healing well. His MRI of his brain showed no sign of injury and his lastest CT scan on his neck are all good. They have had him on his feet and sitting out on a wheel chair but he was not able to stick the pain very long. It's going to be a tough journey for him. Thanks again for all the support, we are so grateful 🙏🏻

    Michael has a bad day yesterday. He is on seriously strong meds which left him quite unresponsive. They have reduced some of his painkillers and changed his antibiotic. Since then he is in more pain but at least he can communicate. Today he was more stable but in a lot of pain. It's such a slow process but we are grateful that he is alive and God willing he will make a full recovery. Stay strong Michael and we will get you through this. Please continue to pray for Michael and his friend Jason. 🙏🏻💜

    We are overwhelmed yet again by people's generosity and support. Michael is in better spirits today. He is still fighting an infection and his confusion was minor this morning.. hopefully this continues to improve. He will be having an MRI on his brain next week to rule out other causes for his confusion. His burns continue to heal but no decision has been made yet regarding skin grafts. Hopefully next week he will get his feet to the floor to assess his mobility. We would love him home for Christmas day.. keep praying - anything is possible X
