C6 teardrop fracture and prayers for Ryley’s mind

The image below is what a spinal fracture like Ryley’s looks like. The larger piece of the fractured C6 is putting pressure on the spinal cord in the middle. There will be a need for surgery to stabilize this sometime in the near term. However, the main concern if for his brain health. He was underwater for at least three minutes. Past one minute causes hypoxia which leads to damage of brain matter. The doctors need to discover how much damage was done to his brain before conducting surgery as that would dictate how/if well his spinal fusion surgery heals.

WE NEED ALL PRAYERS FOCUSED ON HIS BRAIN HEALTH…THIS IS THE NEXT CRITICAL STEP IN RYLEY’S RECOVERY. YOUR PRAYERS ARE WORKING!
