October 9, 2010

On October 9, 2010 two year old Cohen Ritter was involved in an accident at his home in Yukon, Oklahoma. He suffered a head injury and multiple skull fractures and is currently in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.

When he was taken to the hospital on Saturday by ambulance, doctors were unsure of his prognosis but are expecting him to fully recover. He has been temporarily placed on a ventilator to allow his body to rest and for the swelling in his brain to go down.

Doctors have said he will have to have atleast one surgery on one of his skull fractures in order to repair some of the damage.

A CT scan and an MRI were both completed today and they are saying he possibly has a blood clot in one of his jugular veins and they may have to give him some blood thinners to rid the clot. Doctors have requested that Cohen is not talked to or touched because they do not want to stimulate him but rather for him to rest. We are waiting now to let his body kick in and help him progress in his healing and recovery.

The family is requesting people to check this blog for updates and status changes instead of calling or visits to the hospital by friends until Cohen is more stable.

This blog is created for updates and prayers. If you feel the need to help in any way, the biggest way to help is financially. They need all the love and support they can get without having to worry about the financial side of this tragedy. I have posted a Paypal link for secure donations that will be given as a gift to the family to help them with this struggle.
All comments, prayers, concerns left on this page will be forwarded to Sheena and Jesse.

We ask that you continue to pray and keep this blog circling to help every prayer possible to be lifted up to God. Cohen is in good hands and God is going to take care of him.

Thank you all so much for your prayers, your love, your support and any donations you are able to make. The family is very thankful.
