Matt is stable and has no broken bones or internal injuries. He has some minor lacerations and bruising and is currently being weaned from his ventilator. He is not yet awake and not responding as we would like to see but we see the fight in him.

Matts strength and determination along with God's Mercy and Grace will bring him through this.

We ask that you all continue to pray.
