    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

      Michael remains in good form. He has tried standing again but it makes him feel dizzy and sick. He had the staples removed from his skin grafts and they will be assessed again tomorrow. Once the burns Unit are happy with him, he can then be transferred to Musgrave. We pray that he will be well enough to come home for a while on Christmas Day, but it's a very slim chance. Thanks for all your prayers and support... we feel extremely blessed. Keep praying that he has no more setbacks and has the strength to make a full recovery. 🙏🏻💜

      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. 🙏🏻💜
