Please Pray for Melissa

19 year old Melissa Johnson in Indiana is in critical condition after a roll over accident this week. Please pray for her, her family, and friends.

Short news story An update today said they don't know what caused the accident, but that the stretch of road she was on is known for being a hazardous deer crossing.

Re: Please Pray for Melissa

Yes, thanks for asking!

There was a story on the front of the paper last weekend, and I was hoping I could find it online to link, but I can't... The local Hacienda where she worked hosted a fund raiser for her family. It was touching to read that they haven't officially let her go, just put her on leave.

She was in a coma with severe brain injury and had a shattered femur. If I have heard correctly, she's still partially paralyzed, but has been able to say her name. Before the accident, she planned to work in special education, so she's frustrated right now with her speech limitations.

She can still use prayer because she has a long road ahead. She was moved to a rehab facility in Chicago I believe, so hopefully she will continue to recover!

Edit: I found a couple brief write-ups on the fundraiser, here and here.

As a speech therapist myself, I know that the difficulties surrounding communication loss are very challenging!
