Urgent Prayer needed-Rylan fell and hit his head ( not Gus this time) they had to air lift him to a bigger hospital in our state Capitol - we are driving there as I write- He has a brain bleed and may have to have surgery tonight. He is 2 1/2 years old. Please pray for a good outcome. When I can I'll let you know...


by cfidl 10 May 2019

Oh toogie, I have been in my own and missed your post. I believe God's grace has brought Rylan through this scare. Prayers for complete recovery. I am so glad he is home and you all are there to support the family. I will now look for pics of the new baby.

by toogie 08 May 2019

Dad said Rylan did GREAT today. So great in fact, he scares them. Trying to keep a 2 1/2 year old still or at least from tripping, falling the next 3 months will be a daily struggle for the next 3 months. The swelling in his eye has gone down today but that side of his head is still swollen. You can see the beginning of the 55 plus stitches but directly from the front as in this picture does not show the worse. My heart hurt so much when I first saw it, I'm glad it was a photo Caleb sent me. It gave me a chance to compose myself when I actually saw him in person, as it was pretty shocking. Pray he doesn't bump it, especially while it's healing.
Here he is today and you can just see in the photo the energy he has! Look at that beautiful smile!

Rylan came home and what a homecoming it was!
His papa( our son) asked Rylan what he wanted when he got home. Rylan told him he wanted fish to eat & a birthday cake. The day he was born is in October, but we brought presents and had a cake for his 'new' birthday and had fish when he got home. We didn't stay long because he got sleepy and we know they are worn out.
We ask for continued prayer for Rylan and give God the glory for making him 'okay'. We know without Him, things could have been so much worse.

Wonderful news Toogie!!! Love that Rylan wanted Birthday Cake!!! Prayer continued!

toogie by toogie 06 May 2019

I have to say something about my son Brian or at least tell you what he did so you will know what kind of dad/grandad he is.

Brian got me to shave his head for Rylan๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‰ so he would be like him, no hair. Today Caleb , Rylans dad shaved his.
Rylan told Brian he wanted some fish and a birthday cake when he got home- Brian said he would have them waiting and he did. (I told Brian that Rylan does have a 'new' birthday- Jesus gave it to him early Saturday morning!)
Then Brian went and swept/mopped at Caleb's (they just had a baby a few weeks ago)washed dishes - ordered and picked up Rylan 'birthday' cake๐Ÿ˜‰ and cooked Rylan and everyone else fish for supper/dinner!

toogie by toogie 06 May 2019

I don't want it to sound like they don't keep house, they really are clean. It's just that they left in a rush so there were a few dishes. I guess he thought he would mop as caleb's wife just had a baby.

Such wonderful news! And I love the shaved heads.

I am so happy at the continued progress. I can just imagine how difficult it must be to watch that a toddler doesn't trip or fall. Maybe he should were a helmet.

dragonflyer by dragonflyer 08 May 2019

Such wonderful news, Toogie...I'm with Angie...a helmet might be a good idea!

toogie by toogie 08 May 2019

They did ask for a helmet and hospital said he doesn't need one. They said helmets were for patients that are missing part of the skull....I know we all would feel better if it were 'protected' by something physical. We just have to pray for the Lord to put an invisible barrier of protection around him.

jrob by jrob 08 May 2019

Bubble wrap. This grandma would request full head bubble wrap. ๐Ÿ˜†. Iโ€™m so thankful for his miraculous healing. Continued prayers and I do love the solidarity of those precious shaved heads.

Cuties it is a great day today! Rylan has been moved out of Pediatic ICU into a room on the floor. He should even go home tomorrow. They talked about releasing him today but decided to wait one more day. They will remove his bandages tomorrow to show & instruct how to care for his head. I'm sure it will be a shock to Caleb but thank goodness Taylor is trained in wound care. I wish I could send you the video I received from Rylan himself, but I will just pass on his message to all of you and just send his picture this morning. He said 'Thank you for your prayers!' My heart is bursting with gratitude from God and love of this child !!! It indeed is a good day the Lord has made!

The Great Healer did His magic.
That is quite a shiner he has. It will be the colors of rainbows.

Praise God from whom all blessings flow!!!

toogie by toogie 05 May 2019

Probably so! In the video It looks like the other eye is turning black underneath. He saw himself in a mirror, for the first time today, when daddy took him to potty. He didn't want to walk but wanted Caleb to carry him. When they went into the restroom he saw himself. He didn't say anything about his eye but he told his dad to take that 'hat' off of him. Caleb will probably be sick when he sees Rylans head the first time. He has a very weak stomach....

jrob by jrob 05 May 2019

Praying for "both" of your boys! That precious child was held together with love. I hope the little sweetheart gets to go home tomorrow to his toys. Children are so resilient. I'm giving thanks that he's better.

The neurologist just came in- said they had to remove part of the skull to drain & relieve pressure and then put it back- won't know if he will make full recovery for a few days _ said was good he hadn't went comatose before they got him or we would be looking at different outcome- still pray

by toogie 04 May 2019

Surgery is over- the OR called desk and attendant just said surgery over and doing well- we don't know yet what they had to do-we were thinking a shunt to drain but don't know yet- please continue to pray and thank you for your prayers
