    Just heard that a member of my Bible study, Scott, was badly injured in an electric skateboard accident. (I didn't even know there was such a thing!!) He's in the hospital with a gash at the back of his head and a hematoma in the front part of his brain. Would appreciate prayers for him. Thanks!

    Ouch, I didn't know there was such a thing either. Praying for him, his family and his medical caregivers.

    Prayers and blessings on him for a quick, full recovery.

    (An electric skateboard sounds like a bad idea - one sales website says they are "insanely fun and ridiculously cool." Until someone gets hurt.)

    Praying....keep us updated. Just finished "The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven" - a mighty example of the power of prayer!

    Thanks so much, everyone. He's coming along pretty well, considering. He falls asleep a lot, but when he's awake he can feed himself and do therapy, and they're giving him three hours of it a day. He can sit up, and walk with help.

    That's good news - may it continue!
    It sounds like he has the right kind of support to maximize his recovery.

    Some of us went to see him today (going in shifts, so as not to overwhelm him or wear him out). He looked fairly good. Very sleepy, and unfortunately still in some pain, but able to sit up in his wheelchair and hold short conversations.

    Now for the $64 question: was he wearing a helmet on that deathtrap?
