T is the son of an internet friend of mine. We have talked over the years, when she lost her daughter, and later when I lost mine. T has a degenerative condition, and yesterday developed a pneumonia. Today he is in ICU fighting for his life, and the doctors are not sure which way it will go.
I have seen T flourish under B's care. Over the years as he has lost physical skills he has made staggering cognitive gains. He has gone from a boy who could walk to a boy who has difficulties in lifting his arms, but at the same time he has gone from a little boy lost to a young man able to say Mom and request his favourite music.
Please pray for T and B, for the doctors involved and for all who need to make decisions about T's care right now.
