Prayer for LaRonda Forsey's Hospitalized Son
Update: You can keep up to date with everything going on with Drew's progress on the Pray 4 Drew 4C Facebook page.
Drew, son of La Ronda Forsey, associate dean for the School of Distance Education and K-12 principal for Griggs International Academy, was in a bicycle accident on Tuesday evening, July 22. La Ronda and a friend drove through the night to get to the hospital to be with him. Drew sustained serious head trauma and broken scapula. His lungs were bruised from the impact so he is on a ventilator but at times breathing on his own.
It is believed that Drew's bicycle tire malfunctioned throwing him over the handlebars landing on his head. His helmet was smashed and pushed off to the side of his head, so he received some abrasions. Cyclists happened upon Drew lying in the ditch and called 911. One was trained as a first responder and was able to assess Drew's condition and inform the ambulance team when they arrived.
Currently Drew is in Erlanger hospital in Chattanooga Tennessee. While it has not yet been determined what the length of recovery will be, the family welcomes prayer for a complete recovery and has found tremendous encouragement from the texts and messages that have been sent. Communication through a Facebook page called Pray 4 Drew 4C is appreciated and a source of strength during sleepless early morning hours. The family is holding on to all of the evidences of His presence that God has shown.
