The family of 10 year old Coleton Parsley, a fourth grade student at SEES who was critically injured in a sledding accident on Saturday, has provided an update as of today, January 15th.
Coleton's mother, Heather Parsley, said in a statement:
"Just for an update on Coleton as it has been hard to keep everyone updated.I️ truly know that God is in control and gotten Coleton this far. His vital signs are stable. One of the BP meds was able to be weaned. He is still sedated. His Chest X-ray this morning was normal. He is getting a feeding tube now as his albumin was lower than needed for him to heal. He’s getting a blood transfusion now. He’s doing well on the ventilator. He’s trying to breathe some on his own. All is stable for now. Please keep praying for God to heal his body! I️ know He is with us in this room. This hospital staff has been wonderful!"
