Update Mon night June 18-
Please continue to pray for Keaton. He will have another surgery tomorrow.
Cuties I don't know if you fully understand the graphic extent, of what has had to be done, in order to try and save his foot and lower limb. Even after I prepared myself, I almost threw up. I feel so much grief and sorrow for this child! With a wound like his, there is always fear of staph infection setting in....I am almost sick with grief for this young man, like I was for Jerrilyn's son. I can't help but pour my heart out for them. Such sadness and pain for these young guys, to endure....
Another surgery, I'm so sorry. I pray that this is the last one necessary. Such a long journey to recovery ahead of him. Praying also for an uplifting of his spirits as he slogs through the days ahead.... and yours too. Bless you both.
I think today was the first time Keaton realizes fully what is happening. He had fevers before and pain meds so was in and out of awareness. It him him today because he broke down and sobbed. I'm okay, just my heart hurts for him. Pray for him though because his future is so uncertain.....
Praise the Lord. He is good. Prayers that Keaton continues to improve and no more surgery.
Thank you for your prayers
Praise the Lord!! Will continue with prayers for a full recovery.
Thank you Ms.Lillian and no better day to receive this blessing! Hopefully he won't contract an infection and can now heal. I thought as I prayed for the medical staff, that they will do all they can, but Lord you just have to 'grant it be healed' and it will be. I am so thankful for this young man's sake.
Keaton is out of surgery and they removed all of the dead tissue and flesh-it wasn't in the muscles so all the muscles are intact or it wasn't in the bone-they're going to go back in Tuesday and make sure they have everything and didn't leave any of it-fever has broken since surgery and really sweating profusely - it was a large area but not deep into muscle so he should recover well baring no infection or further decaying. Will update if a problem- Eterally grateful for prayers and support - still in ICU but oh so much better on this, our Lords day.
Mostly good news and a relief. Continue to pray.
Thanks for this update. Will keep him in my thoughts and prayers.
I pray that the news just keeps getting better for this young man. Thanks for the update Toogie.
This is very sad we will pray for all and for his speedy recovery xxx
Saturday afternoon update---
Keaton had a rough night with pain and high fever. Scheduled for surgery Sunday morning, Father's Day, at 7:30 am. Will be cutting out dead flesh and seeing just how deep decaying goes. Please pray no amputations needed and life spared. He is still in ICU....will keep you updated, but may not get to update until tomorrow afternoon. I will try to let you know asap, though. Thank you for continued prayer.-Toogie
Urgent prayers are being said. This is horrible
Yes, it is. Just a country boy trying to live right, working hard and enjoying nature by fishing. The Saturday before the boys washed all the family vehicles, wasn't that nice? They called my niece to bring hers over, but hers was clean already. Keaton has a twin brother and a younger brother and they are all outdoors men.
Prayers send, hoping for the best...
Friday-Large black patches of flesh
Not good- called in wound specialist trying save foot-
How frightening. I pray that they can save his foot and that he makes a complete recovery. I hope you are doing okay too.
Adding more prayers throughout the day.
Thank you all..
Oh my!! Sending prayers.
Update Thursday night-
Keaton showing some improvement-
Fever broke for little while- swelling in leg not getting any bigger around but swelling moving up toward body-
good sign he still has pulse in foot- said if no pulse would have to cut leg open to relieve pressure
When fever broke he told them he's hungry-
Another good sign his kidneys put out- said side effect of anti venom shuts down kidneys- so thankful for kidney function-
Learned when rattlesnake bites it shuts down nervous system causing death faster Water moccasin or cotton mouth the bite makes blood coagulate so you need to know what KIND of snake so they know what anti venom to administer
Family ask to keep praying for Keaton's recovery and thank everyone for prayers
Praying. Please keep us updated.
Sending prayers for a speedy recovery.
Please keep us informed on his progress. I'm praying for this young man.
Praying for Keaton and a complete recovery!
Thanks for the update. Blessings on this family.
prayers will continue....
Thank you all
Sending prayers. Hugs

Prayers going out to all, especially Keaton. Hope they got him the anti venom rapidly. Boy, we watch shows on t.v. of this stuff. So afraid of any kind of snake or spider and all the unknowns you get and causes havoc in your body. God bless you all.

Keaton and his family and friends will be in my prayers
