scouts-l Mail Archive for May of 2000: Update on Steven Shifflet
Fri May 12 2000 - 20:03:32 CDT
Steven Shifflet is a 16 year old Eagle Scout that was hit by a semi
truck and was in desperate need of your prayers.
When I asked for all of you to pray for Steven a few weeks ago, he was
not expected to live thru the weekend.
Happily I report that he is much improved. He has been moved to Emory
Hospital. The swelling in his brain and face has subsided. He is still in
a coma, however, he responds to voice commands (ex. hold up 2 fingers,
raise your right leg, etc.) He also has a stuffed blue frog that a group of
Scouters gave him that he plays with constantly. He strokes it and swings
it over his head. If you take it away from him he gets really upset.
So, I ask you all to continue praying for him and his family and
hopefully soon he will awake from the coma as well.
