Prayers for Syphon

Postby Gravity Defier » Fri May 29, 2015 9:42 am

For those of you who are the praying type, and those of you who aren't, prayers and good wishes are desperately needed for Syphon and his family. His son is in the hospital after he stopped breathing last night and had no pulse. He was resuscitated, with very little brain activity, and is now showing some small improvements but is not out of the clear yet.

I don't even know what to say, everything I think of seems so inadequate, but sending every prayer and good thought I have.
There's another home somewhere,
There's another glimpse of sky...
There's another way to lean
into the wind, unafraid.
There's another life out there...

Thanks, guys. I know Syphon appreciates it greatly. At last check (about an hour ago), there were some very minor improvements but not enough to consider little guy stable and okay. It's very much a waiting game but mom and dad are cautiously optimistic, considering he's made it this far and has shown even the little (where little is still significant) improvement he has.

Thinking about baby and family a lot. And praying. Thanks for the update, Alea.

The doctors gave him a reflex test today and he failed. They're doing some other tests to determine brain activity but things aren't looking good. If he fails the next reflex test on Tuesday, and the doctors are fairly certain he will as they have never seen someone pass the second when they failed the first, it's almost likely he'll be declared brain dead. The MRI and EEG results will help determine the diagnosis, pending bad Tuesday results.

I feel physically ill and can't even begin to imagine how Syphon and wife are feeling.

I'm so, so sad and sorry to hear this. Continuing to pray and think of the little man and his family.

I am so heartbroken. Sending so much love to that family.
you snooze, you lose
well I have snozzed and lost
I'm pushing through
I'll disregard the cost
I hear the bells
so fascinating and
I'll slug it out
I'm sick of waiting
and I can
hear the bells are
ringing joyful and triumphant

Been thinking about Syphon and family all day. I can't imagine what they're going through, but if there is any comfort to be had, I hope with all my heart they find it.

I know that as cruelly short as his life was, it was a life filled with love. I can’t imagine your sorrow. Heartbroken for you and will continue thinking of and praying for you and yours.

I have nothing to say that will mean anything, but I'm so, so sorry. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

I'm sorry. I know there is nothing I can say to make this better in any way. I can't imagine the loss you and your wife are feeling right now. We are keeping you in our thoughts and sending all of our love your way.

I'm so sorry for you loss.

Can I just say how much I hate people? Someone literally said this to us at lunch today:

"Oh, your baby died? Don't worry. You can have another one."

She then proceeded to tell us that she could understand why my wife was mourning, but that it "doesn't make sense" for me to be.

I'm sorry I haven't been around here, but I followed Alea's posts on fb. And I've been heart-broken for you guys. Brian cried. It hit him really hard.

So much love and prayers for you and your wife and both of your families.
