Yesterday, her daddy was backing up, and not realizing she was behind him, knocked her over, then, tripped and fell on top of her.
The latest update was: “…she has a severe brain injury, and a fractured skull. They need to do a procedure to place a pressure measuring device in her skull so they can know how to treat her with medicine to keep the pressure down, and that is all at this point--they believe it best at present to give her two weeks for the brain to begin recovery. The doctor used the words, "we need to let this storm pass" through medication, keeping her sedated, and letting the pressure and swelling reduce.
She is in a coma from her injuries, which at this point is not a bad thing, seeing that it allows the brain to rest and heal.
There is no word on the long term prognosis, but the injuries are severe, and while there is a possibility of a full recovery, the doctors expect a long term, rather than a short term recovery. We are in a wait and see mode at this point, and the next few days up to the next two weeks will be the most telling.
Her parents are holding up--there are a number of folks here at the hospital with them, praying, comforting. They know they're not alone, but are surrounded with the care of the Lord's people, and the Lord Himself is providing for them in many ways.”
Amariah’s daddy also suffered a broken arm in trying to stop his fall, and her mama is 6 months pregnant.
Thank you for your prayers for this dear family.
