    Let me start by saying sorry, i posted the other thread in the wrong place and that may offend people idk? Lol
    Any way il put up a few updates and things here for people that are interested and if u want to read original thread in under Whitetail Deer Hunting titled “Thanks”

    So here goes.
    He is doin better, as of this eve he had 50 hrs of good heart beat without arythmia and there starting to take him off medications very slowly.
    He is still sadated and is on a ventilator and dialysis machine.

    For anyone wondering what happened to him originaly please go read other thread but if u dnt want to il leave a little here. Benji is 6 year old and went into hospital Christmas Eve and stayed a week with his muscle enzyme count at a high of 160,000 and its spose to be 200 so he was very high. Its started coming down and after a week drs sent him home. New Year’s Eve while his family gatherd to open Christmas gifts he went into cardiac arrest and was flown to Vanderbuilt hospital and has been ther sadated and has not as much as moved since. Ther slowly workin to take him off meds and get him back to normal. He is still in ICU and they dnt know when he wil come out or at least i havnt heard.

    I in no way asking for money and this is not the reason i posted this but one of our friends did start a go fund me page for him and if you want to read mor about him ther you can and also on caringbridge. Benji Hibner is his name. I will leave a link to gofundme. Your prayer are more asked for then money cause we all know healing comes from God
    Thanks and have a blessed night

    Went to see the boys last afternoon and he looks much better. Heart has been doin good and ther slowly workin him off sedatives. He responds negatively to antidote that they give u to keep from having with draws so they can just shut them off they have to slowly turn them off and control withdrawals with pain killer.
    Also one of the ICU drs told my brother(boys dad) that this was possibly the hardest and most difficult patient to work on in the 25yrs he has worked ther.
    Everything that would work on everyone else does not work on this boy so its a long road but healing takes a long time

    Thanks for prayers we and drs need them. I know some of the drs have said they didn sleep much themselves some of the nights wer he was bad. Thanks again

    So for all who may wonder, i posted awhile back about my nephew bein in the hospital. Im happy to report they have moved him out of ICU and he is in a recovery room. No more sedation meds so he is waking up slowly. I think he may be in some pain but just another step of healing Thanks for the many prayers and please keep praying. Ther is talk of at least a full month of physical therapy of 3 hours a day witch is a lot. The boy is not natured at all the way of exercise or much physical activity so i believe it will be a long road. Thanks for now and il keep you posted.

    Yes he is doin very good. Walks and can even run a little. He is a victim of stroke so things go slow but its amazing. He still gets tired out easy but that’s expected.
    While he was in the hospital they had him on a ventilator and ther is scar tissue from that that restricts breathing so the ballon his vocal cords but its growing back together so this week ther doin laser surgery to cut the vocal cords so he can breath betr.
    Also they have takin him off most medicine
