Dean's oldest brother, Danny, was seriously injured in an explosion at work yesterday. He was life-flighted to University of Michigan Hospital and is comatose with burns over 75% of his body, 55% of which are third degree. The out of state siblings are flying in tomorrow.
With Dean's dad's Alzheimer's, it's hard to know the correct course of action but we will tell his mom and ask her to pray for Danny on dad's behalf. We don't think his dad should be told what's happened.
Please pray with us.
Update: The doctors have informed the family that if Danny survives until noon today that will be the point when they will start looking at a possibility of survival. Danny is Dean's half brother from his dad's first marriage and there has never been a close relationship although recently Dean and his half sister Diane have reconnected because of their dad's illness. Dean's dad has been told but is very confused and thinks it is Dean who is injured. I'll keep you updated as I hear information. Thanks for your offers of help, at the moment I think prayer is all that we need. We're both off work so we'll be in touch. Love you guys...
