My son Mitchell
My youngest 17 year old son has suffered an accidental gun shot wound to the head. I am posting this from Hunstville Hospital ICU waithing room. The foklks are very nice here. he was transfered here from a smaller hospital. He has undergone brain surgery and all they will tell us at this point is that things are not looking good, and that if he does survive there is certainly severe brain damage. The good part is the bullet only passed through about 1/3 to 1/2 of his brain but there is damage.
It doesn't get any worse than this my friends. THis is the worst life has to offer. He was with friends and there was a firarm is all we really know. The cops say there is not foul play and I have spoken to the boys present. Yall I'm sorry I can't talk about it right now.
Please pray for Mitchell, things are not looking good for him.

Thank you Bob, God bless you my brother.
Things are ok I guess. It is hard to come to grips with the fact that things are probably not going to get any better for Mitchell physically. I can tell it is wearing on him. Heck, it is wearing on all of us, but it is what it is
His Grace is enough

Today is Mitch's 23rd birthday. Thank you all from the depths of my heart for your support over the past 5 years. I don't know what else to say. This is a special day every year for our family. By God's Grace today and this weekend we will celebrate another year of life for Mitch instead of mourning his death that could have been after that devastating gun shot in Dec of 2008.
Praise the Lord and again thank you all for your prayers and support and words of encouragement over the years May God bless you all, each and every one.

And God Bless you and your family. You certainly have a reason to celebrate another year with Mitch. It could have been so much worse. If that is possible after what you all have been through. Prayers for you. And Happy Birthday to Mitch!
