Please Pray for Chas!

This is my precious nephew, Chas! (picture taken just two hours before accident) We are so grateful for the enormous outpouring of prayers; little Chas needs every one of them!

Chas fell while skiing in Chamonix, France, on Monday (February 18). He was airlifted to one hospital nearby and then airlifted again to another hospital in Grenoble, where he remains.

Chas has a hematoma on the left side of his brain and and a broken wrist.

He is still in a coma and has no movement on his right side. Please pray for sweet Chas... that Jesus would just wake him up! That there would be no brain damage and he would have movement on right side! That my brother and sister in law would be flooded with peace and just feel God's presence mightily in the PICU! Thank you so much!

I know God is working we had a PRAISE yesterday afternoon... they removed the ventilator (as you can see happy parents below!) He did flutter his eyes and griped my sister in laws finger with left hand! Praise you Lord!

So lets keep praying! Thank you so much for caring! I just LOVE the Body of Christ! So sweet how you all care! Thank you for being a reflection of Him to us! God Bless you all! Emmy : )

**Praise Update**
Thank you all so much for praying! Chas is doing so much better... he still is in a Coma... but on a coma scale 1-15 (1-3 being the worst) he is now a 10... he was a 3 then a 7 now a 10 (YEAH) he has even tried to smile! He still in unconscious about 20 or so hours a day but for a couple of those hours when he seems to come out of it he will open his eyes even try to smile when a joke is told! I am so excited I am about to burst! Thank you so much for praying! I just know he will have a full recovery! Please don't stop praying I know that is why he is doing so well... we still have a LONG way to go... thank you for caring!
Love you all! Emmy : )

Hey Emmy. Found you on LPM and want you to know that I am praying for your sweet nephew and his parents and the doctors.

Father. I lift Chas up to You for healing. I ask You to comfort his parents. Remind them Who is in control. Guide the doctor's who are treating Chas. Send Godly men and women into this sweet family's lives and hospital room. I thank You in advance for the amazing things You are doing and will do in this situation. We love You, Jesus.

Blessings and hugs to you...

I love seeing the picture of Chas and his sweet parents at his bedside.
I've seen God do some amazing miracles and I just know He's going to do one in this case!
You are right...the Body of Christ is precious. It's such a privilege to pray for someone I probably won't ever meet until we all get to heaven.
God bless you and thank you for the update.

Emmy, once again lifting Chas up in prayer as I look at his sweet face and then the other with him at the heart breaks, yet already there is hope.... and I believe in a loving Father that tells us to "call upon Him"...He is STILL in the miracle-making business! And He is Faithful.....

Hi Emmy. How is Chas doing today? Praying for him and for all of you!

You know we are praying. I am so glad he gripped her hand. I can remember hearing those I loved when I was out of it and wanting so much to let them know I was there and could hear. I remember the relief when I successfully squeezed my Mom's hand and heard her say, "She squeezed my hand." Sweet relief.

Oh Emmy I just prayed. I am so sorry that all of them are going through this. Did they say how long it would take the tumor of blood to resolve? Joining you in prayer for your sweet family!
love jenny

Great Physician,
I thank You that You knit Chas together so wonderfully and know each cell intimately. You know exactly where each cell has been damaged. So I entrust these cells to You right now and ask that You restore them to its optimum function once again. Wrap Chas in a cocoon of protection from any complications including any attacks from the enemy. Be with his parents and other family members as they wait and watch and pray. Hide them under the shadow of the Almighty until the terror has passed by. Bring alongside them Your ministering angels. May they look back at this time as a precious time of encountering Your Presence and the love of the Body. Now to You, O God, Who is able to do so much more than we can ever imagine, to You, O God, be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

Hi Emmy. Found you from LPM - I am praying for Chas right now!! Lifting that precious child up to his thrown for a full recovery! Please update when you can. I have two boys his age and it just grips my heart to see his suffering. Please let his parents know they are also being lifted up in prayer!

Sita Henderson said...

With a heart tied to yours by His blood,

Ok...all caught up now. And, let me just say this story is screaming "JESUS!"

Please know that I will pray for your family tonight and ask God to continue to heal this precious boy!
What an experience they have had.

Glory to God for the GREAT things He has done and continues to do.

Have you stopped praising Him yet?
I bet y'all are still just in amazement of how far this guy has come!
