A Sad Situation

Late last night I found out that the older son of some friends was attacked by a patient (he's a nurse) and is in rough shape. I can't go into details but if it hadn't have been for his own strength and quick reflexes he would have been stabbed in the heart. Instead he has a huge gash on his arm an lost a lot of blood. he also has a punctured lung and other internal injuries and is in danger of clots and infection.

I would appreciate your thoughts and prayers for this young man (mid 20's) and his family. His younger brother is one of our youth leaders and is also studying to be a nurse. I really feel for the whole family.

Thanks, everyone for your replies.

He seems to be doing much better and is no longer critical. I will talk to his Mom tomorrow and find out specifics.
