I am the friend of a patient who was the victim of a house fire on Saturday, 10/10/09. Although he did not receive any external burns, he did suffer from smoke inhalation. As of today he is still in critical condition.

I live in Chicago and cannot visit him in Baltimore. However, my heart aches for him. There is nothing I can do for him outside of prayer. Is there anyone out there who has experienced a similar event. I do not know what to expect.

well there is one thing i can say about this. prayer is the most powerful thing to do. life sometimes deals us with things we would rather not be dealt but you can continue on and if somebody’s time is up well that is what has been planned and if it is not time you have to show him as much support as possible and he will need to make up his mind to accept what has been dealt and continue down his path. i was electrocuted 7200 volts and had both hands amputated. my kidneys were failing but with support and prayer i am doing fine today. my accident was march 1st 2008. when you go to on the front page is my pic click on it and watch my story. if that doesn’t work go to type in jason koger testimony. i hope this helps and continue to pray.
