    Need your prayers NOW

    Folks, a co-worker's 12 yo son just took an LD of clonipin in conjunction with an antidepressant, at school. The principal was made aware of the OD, but did not deem it significant enough to call 911. Apparently a teacher called mom, who called 911.

    The son is in ICU, and prayer is all he has. This isn't the first such incident in an OK school, and I'm going to see if I can't set a senator's arse on fire about this type of negligence, but right now, mother and son need to be lifted. Please and thank you!

    I know we've got a few Okies here. About 2 years ago, a girl about the same age died in (IIRC) the Moore school district because staff did not believe her brother that she was choking at the lunch table. We need to clean some house- I'll be calling Inhoff et al, when I'm sure of the District.

    It's good to know that wherever we bow down and humble ourselves; we are in the presence of our Father....prayers on the way.

    Prayers sent
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    No offense meant but your Senators shouldn't be the ones grilled for gross incompetence...

    Thoughts and best wishes go out to the kid and his family.

    Thank you, guys. We just got word: he's not clear yet, but he woke up and was able to go to the bathroom. I expected him to be on a vent, if he made it through the afternoon.

    BAC, I know what your intent is, however school nurses may be reinstated at direction of the legislature. Many, many states no longer have nurses because of the expense/liability issue, and leave these medical decisions upto someone whose greatest concern is "not creating a panic." (Check your local schools, if you don't know for sure. Teachers have no place making trauma/advanced medical calls, as they are increasingly called upon to do.)

    FYI, this principal came to the hospital, and among other things stated that that was "just one of the kinds of hard decisions I have to make..." Yeah, the School Board gets a call, but a magnifying lens on their ant butts won't hurt.

    Rob,

    Just seeing this, but prayers for this young man, his family and all involved.

    Father, we lift this boy up and ask for your mercy in sparing his life and a quick recovery. Give the doctors wisdom in treatment. We humbly ask you to spare his life and that he will recover fully and completely. Your word says that if two or more agree as touching anything on earth, it will be done by my Father in heaven. We agree in prayer. In Jesus Name!! Amen.
