Help for Family

From left: Destiny, Denise, Joe (Destiny's husband, Denise's son)

As I stated in a previous post, my cousin (Destiny) and aunt (Denise) were injured in a propane blast on the evening of February 13.  It was powerful enough to blow the back door clean off the house.  Both received 3rd degree burns and are currently in the burn unit at St. Vincent’s Mercy Medical Center in Toledo, OH.

Logan James Nicholson

The real problem was that Destiny was pregnant, and the baby had to be delivered by emergency C-section on Valentine’s Day.  Not the way you want a little one to enter this world.  But he is doing well.  He’s in NICU for a few more days, and on antibiotics as a precaution.  Logan weighed five pounds, four ounces and was 18 1/4 inches long.  He was born three weeks early.

Continued prayers would be most appreciated.

Unfortunately, Joe and Destiny lost most of their possessions. Their house (which was a fixer-upper before) is in serious disarray.  If you can offer any financial help, please visit their support website to donate.

If you’re on Facebook, you can join the Support Destiny Nicholson Group to receive updates and offer moral support.

E-mail with any additional ideas, comments, or questions.

Prayer Request

I don’t normally put prayer requests out on the blog since the audience tends to be mostly atheist or agnostic, but the accident is serious enough that I wanted to do so anyway.

My Aunt Denise and her daughter-in-law Destiny were in Destiny’s new house when the hot water tank exploded.  The were life-flighted to the hospital with 3rd-degree burns.  Destiny is 8 1/2 months pregnant, which is the worst part of this.

I’ll post updates when I have them.  For now, any prayers would be appreciated.  Thank you.
