Recently my grandson Michael Batham (only 16) was in a tragic auto accident (Oct. 26th, 2013), my daughter Jill (now pregnant) is overwhelmed of their medical costs. I created this fundraiser for to help pay Michael's medical needs.
THIS WAS NOT DRUG or ALCOHOL RELATED, HE JUST GOT AN OLD TRUCK AND HIS LICENSE, AND WAS DRIVING BACK HOME FROM HIS JOB FROM TACO BELL.

Story of Mikey;

Getting the dreaded phone call around 7pm (Oct. 26th 2013 NOT even 2 months ago), from one of my daughters while I was at my youngest daughters house, Alex said with with grief spoken words "Mikey's been in a bad accident, and he is in the ICU unit, and we need prayers, it looks really bad".
As I hung up the phone, I quickly went up the stairs to my youngest daughter and told her, while clutching her and the both of us crying in devastation... this is difficult for me to post, still brings tears to my eyes...

SATURDAY OCT.26TH AT 11:32PM

FIRST TEXT MESSAGE; TUBE IN EACH LUNG, LUNGS ARE BRUISED BADLY. AIR IN HIS BODY FROM IMPACT AND POSSIBLY NEEDING TO CUT FROM STERNUM TO BELLY BUTTON TO LOOK MORE CLOSELY AT INTERNAL DAMAGES.
PRESSURE SENSOR PUT IN SKULL TO MEASURE ANY SWELLING THAT MAY HAPPEN NEXT FEW DAYS. HE WILL BE SEDATED FOR A MINIMUM OF 3DAYS TO HELP HEAL HIS CHEST. FRACTURED RIBS NO BROKEN BONES AS FAR AS THEY KNOW AS NOW.

(THERE WAS A 5 HOURS OF NOT KNOWING ANYTHING)

SUNDAY OCT. 27TH AT 4:26AM

THINGS ARE GETTING WORSE, THEY ARE CHANGING HIS VENTILATOR. HIS BLOOD PRESSURE IS VERY LOW. THEY HAVE HIM ON MEDS FOR THAT BUT HARD DUE TO BRAIN SWELLING, THEY ARE TRYING TO KEEP DOWN. HE IS IN VERY BAD SHAPE RIGHT NOW. PLEASE PRAY WE DON'T LOSE HIM.

SUNDAY OCT. 27TH AT 8:25AM HE HAS A TUBE IN EACH LUNG FOR DRAINING, RIBS 2-9 ARE BROKEN ON BOTH SIDES, CHEEK BONES FRACTURED, TRACHEA TORN, LUNGS BADLY BRUISED, THEY HAVE HIS BLOOD PRESSURE UP BUT STABLE, HIS BRAIN IS TRYING TO SWELL MORE, JUST HOPE, HOPE, HOPE, THAT HE WILL PULL THROUGH RECOVERY.
DOC SAID MICHAEL'S BODY HAS TO MAINTAIN O2 TO BRAIN AND KEEP HEALING ITSELF FOR THE NEXT FEW WEEKS.

SUNDAY OCT. 27TH AT 10:24AM HIS BRAIN SWELLING HAS TO CONTINUE TO STAY 24ISH. THAT SHOULD BE 20. BUT STILL BETTER THAN 32 EARLIER. THEY WANT TO TAKE HIM DOWN TO SCAN HIS BRAIN AGAIN. THAT SHOULD TAKE AT LEAST AN HOUR.

MESSAGE; JILL (MICHAEL'S MOM) CALLED THE NEUROLOGIST CAME IN AND GAVE HER WORSE CASE SCENARIO NEWS, SO SHE WAS QUITE SHAKEN BY THAT, THEY HAVE NO IDEA THE EXTENT OF THE BRAIN DAMAGE CAUSED BY THE SWELLING OF HIS BRAIN. THEY MAY DO SURGERY TO REMOVE PRESSURE FROM THE BRAIN. KEEP PRAYING.!!!

TODAY HE IS WALKING, REMEMBERS, AND EVEN TALKS. WE HAVE MICHAEL BACK, THANKS TO THE PRAYERS AND SUPPORT FROM ALL OF YOU, GOD BLESS YOU ALL... HE STILL HAS A VERY LONG RECOVERY, PLEASE HELP ANY WAY YOU CAN...THANK YOU !!!

Update on Pray for Michael Blog 11/11/13

My daughter Alex

just face-timed my daughter Jill, for awhile.

She hung up because , Mikey

returned from surgery with his perm feeding tube.

She will keep us updated in his progress. They will be removing his breathing tube today

and if he does good they will cancel his trach surgery tomorrow.

Good news

Mikey is out of surgery and his heart rate and blood pressure

is low, but it's because of the sedation medications.

His MRI is moved from 2pm, to 1pm today.

Jill says Mikey is doing good !!!

Keep praying and thanks

Update on Pray for Michael



Update from my daughters Alex and Jill;

Mikey (my grandson) has an MRI scheduled for Monday.

That will show a more detailed image of his brain injury.

He is scheduled to get a more permanent feeding tube Monday in the OR.

Then on Tues they will try to remove the tube without putting in a Trach.

Since he is mostly breathing on his own they think it is worth a try.

If it doesn't work and he needs help breathing they will put it back it.

He has been more calm the last two days.

Update yesterday 11/08/13 after 3pm Jill Batham (my daughter) text Alexandra Freeman my daughter) ; this awesome story:

When i got back (from getting a haircut) i asked Michael Bradley Batham (my grandson, Jilly's Son)

if he liked it and he closed his eyes. I said i will take that as a yes. He actually smiled.

Then a bit later he was laughing of no reason.

I know he probably didn't laugh at my joke but it was good timing. Update @ 3pm 11/08/2013; Michael Bradley Batham brain injury was diagnosed today, the article link is below, they still don't know the extent of damage this has caused, but doctors are focusing on finding out now that his breathing is stable. #prayformichael Jill Batham ..

2 New #prayformichael Updates since 5:30am today





#prayformichael

Update @ 5:30am from Jill Batham

#prayformichael
Michael Bradley Batham was just given some morphine to be comfortable. He moved his head to the side and was in some pain when they were adjusting him. His reflexes are working very well. He lifted his hand off the bed and pushed it back down into the bed while I was holding it. The nurse said that the morphine should out him back to sleep. The doctor said it will also help to get him on a sleep cycle. Keep praying, God Bless you All ️ — with Michael Bradley Batham.

#prayformichael Keep up the great job all of you are doing, everything looks so positive! God Bless you all!

Update @ 8:45am from Jill Batham

Michael Bradley Batham is moving a lot. His eyes have been opening a lot. They pinched him behind his knee and he moved. They pinched him on his shoulder and he tried to swat. When holding his hand and talking to him his eyes flutter and he lifts his arm and also tries to push it into the bed. They are still giving him morphine to help with the pain. It might take him a little longer to wake up because of it. — with Michael Bradley Batham and Jill Ba

New Update "Pray For Michael"

Icp monitor is out. He bit down on toothbrush last night. His bp and heart rate are good.

He had a busy night with changing all the tubes and ivs plus the ct scan but he did good.

He is also trying to breathe on his own but because if lung damage will keep the ventilator in for a few more days.

He is still very asleep but not paralyzed. He can reflex but he is not awake or moving.



Psalm 34:17

The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles

John 5:14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God:

that if we ask anything according to his will,

he hears us

Update on Prayers For Michael



Update from Jill Batham (Michael Bradley Batham Mom). They have taken him off the saline solution which helps pull fluid from brain.

His icp has been good all day. They will do at ct in morning and they hope to take out the icp monitor tomorrow if all is still going well.

They took out one of the tubes to his lungs. So he just has the right one now. Little progress but it is all good.

Thanks for the support and prayers. Please keep them coming as this will be a long road to recovery.

#prayformichael repost to pass the prayers to Michael Bradley Batham thank you all...

Pray and Support my grandson Michael...







My grandson Michael Batham was in a tragic car accident.(his name is the link to his facebook page).
We know that he wasn't texting.
This Blog is to keep everyone updated, reminded to pray and support him, and his family and also those who are praying and supporting him.
Thank YOU....

The incident happened around 7pm Oct. 27th, 2013 when he was driving. No one know yet exactly what happen to cause his truck to swerve and roll.

But luckily an off duty officer found him in time, apparently he was not wearing a seat belt and was thrown through the window.

The officer said that both front and back axles were broken and the tires were still smoking, meaning he had not been there very long.

He was flown to a children's hospital and he is still there.
SSM Cardinal Glennon
Children's Medical Center

If anyone would like to write to him, with the permission of Jill (his mother).
Just leave a message on my facebook page. the link below..
Terry Freeman, I'm his grandma

Today's update is;
Technically you would wake him up but it would take a really big jolt.
He's still really medicated, just not in a coma.
For him it would be like an alarm clock radio going off at 5am in the morning
(he can hear it, but it doesn't make any sense).
He may wake up feeling it's only been like 30 seconds and panicky.
Won't know the permanent trauma in his brain for 6-12 months.
He has a feeding tube, and they suction his lungs, he has gag reflexes, and he coughs.
He also has body reflexes, off his PARALYTIC MEDICATION and that his swelling of the brain (ICP) is low now, the numbers look good.
They have a trachea tube placed due to the fluid and blood in his lungs.
there's a long recovery road for him, #prayformichael, (I hope that link works) and continue to pray and support him,
WE thank you from the bottom of our hearts...
