    I just received a email from Becky (powderhooves). The reason she had not replied sooner is her 19 year old had a stroke and was airlifted to Denver. His brain was bleeding and swelling badly. He went into a coma. They did brain surgery and he's on full life support and non responsive. Today, they had to do another brain surgery and remove the top of his skull because of the bleeding.

    I received this Tuesday. So Please if you are a prayer. :pray: :pray: They really need your prayers now.

    Thank you all.

    This is what I just got from her. PRAISE GOD.


    Hi Lori - well, we are back from Denver and left with blessings. Clayton woke up from his coma and has active higher level cognitive thought processing. He was able to give a thumbs up, move his toes on the right side and squeeze his nurses' hands. All good news. We don't know the extent of his disabilities. He may be blind but we don't know yet and there will be losses on the left side of his body. The right side of the brain was severely damaged by the stroke. He amazed his critical care doctor. She told me yesterday the only thing he has on his side is youth and she didn't expect him to recover.
