Prayer Request for a Friend of a Friend

Just wanted to send out a prayer request for a friend of a friend.

My friend Debbie has a friend whose son was severely burned when he accidently pulled the fry daddy on to him while his mother was cooking. He is about ten years old. His name is Kevin. He suffered 2nd and 3rd degree burns over 25% of his body. His mom was also burned over her hands while trying to remove his clothes.

The family just recently moved and started new jobs. From what Debbie tells me, it seems Kevin was sliding around on the kitchen floor. His mother told him to get up before he got hurt. He decided to use the counter to pull himself up; he accidently pulled the cord to the fry daddy and it fell, sending the boiling grease splashing all over him. His brother was standing nearby and was burned on the arms as well.

Kevin regained consciousness today in a Cincinnati Hospital. He is asking for food, so they feel that is a good sign.

I don't know these folks personally, but as a mom I can only imagine what they must be going through emotionally, physically and financially.

Any prayers that you might lift up for these folks would be much appreciated.
