I recieved this email from a friend of mine in town last week. Her son was injured on dec 17th. They are not sure what happened to him there has been speculation that he had been attacked by someone with a baseball bat, but they really arent sure and there was no one around to tell them what happen. he may have fallen down a flight of stairs. I asked Dawn if she would like me to ask my online friends to pray and she said yes because she knows that is what is working so far. So far he has beaten a lot of the odds. She asked that now we concentrate on praying that he would wake up as he has been in a coma since the friday the 17th. Please keep them in your prayers. and I will post her updates this is the first email that she sent..
"Our son, Scott Marciszewski (age 24) was in a tragic accident on Friday, December 17th.He has a massive head injury and is in the Trauma ICU unit at Erie County Medical Center in Buffalo, NY. He was not expected to make it, though at this time he has defied all of the doctors. His current condition: CriticalHis organs are all functioning and he is now moving his left arm and leg. His eyes are reactive to light- both equally. They tell us these are all positive signs, but he still needs to wake up. At this time we are asking for everyone to Pray for Scott! The next 7-14 days will be critical for him.Visiting hours are very limited, and I am very selfish with my time with him. I just can't seem to leave his side when we are allowed to see him. We are only allowed to be with him for 3 1/2 hours every day. He has many great friends and as you all know is a great kid. I will try to update everyone when I can."
There have been several other emails since then, but the following is her most recent from this tonight:
"Scott- Monday December 27, 2010:12:00
Noon: Gary and I visited Scott and received the results of the CT Scan done last night. The doctor wrote that the CT Scan shows improvement. I was SO happy to hear that news. Scott also has been on antibiotics for an infection in his lungs, so his white count has been up. Today, that came down significantly. His blood sugar has been consistently excellent, so they have reduced doing that test to every 2 hours from every hour. They also removed all but one of the drains from his head. He is doing just great with everything and his pressure in his brain is just fine. Every day has been good news so far so I know that all of the prayers are working to heal this great young man.
5:00 PM: This visit Scott is moving his left arm practically all the time. He doesn't like what is in his throat and often reaches for it. He holds my hand with a firm grip, and is moving his right arm every so slightly. He continues to move his eyes and blink, though his eyes have not yet opened. We continue to wait for him to heal, and will wait as long as necessary for him to wake up. He has made such progress, and I am so happy with him and feel so relieved that he is doing so well. Today is Day 9, so hopefully by the New Year we will see those beautiful blue eyes. Dawn"
Thanks girls for your prayers.. I know they will be appreciated by the family and I will keep you updated on his progress.
