I received some good and bad news about a friend's son this week. He was injured in Iraq by an IED (bad news), but has been flown back to Walter Reed and is doing OK and his injuries will not be life threatening (good news).
The preliminary information I've recieved from his mom---
Drew was manning the gun on an MRAP vehicle when the vehicle in front of them exploded. All of his wounds were to the face, not the head, but most of the bones in his face are broken. He may lose some or all of his vision in his left eye and his sinuses are full of shrapnel. He cannot speak (tubes down his throat), but is communicating with doctors and by touch (squeezing hands). He has been moved out of ICU and is expected to be released in the next 2 weeks after some surgeries to remove more shrapnel.
Our Church is praying for Drew and his family...any prayers from you guys would be appreciated. Thanks Everyone.
