* updated * *updated* URGENT prayer request

I just got word that my 22-yr-old nephew was found unresponsive. He had been home alone, and his sister found him when she came home.

She called 9-1-1 and he was taken to the local hospital.

That's all I know right now.

Please pray.

*********
UPDATE:

He is still unconscious and they have been unable to wake him up. He is on a ventilator.

They do not yet know the cause.

Preliminary tox screen was negative. They will do a detailed / deeper tox screen, but that will take time to get the results.

Apparently he was sick last night and had been sleeping on the couch since then, which is where my niece found him. Current theory is that he may have vomited in his sleep and aspirated on it.

He also had a severe brain injury about 7 years ago, so that will also be taken into consideration.

Please continue to pray for his healing.

Please also pray for his dad (my brother-in-law), who is driving across 4 states tonight to be with his son. He had already worked about 6 hours before leaving on this 10 hour drive. Please pray for his safety as he travels.

********
UPDATE:

It was an overdose. A prescription drug (not sure which one).

His brain activity is "not good".

Please keep those prayers coming.
