Please pray for Meredith ...

she is a beautiful 21 year old girl and is fighting for her life. She is Dudleys aunts grand daughter. She is a student at a college in up state New York where her father teaches. She began to experience black outs from what I understand. After many tests, they diagnosed a brain aneurysm. She went in for surgery yesterday morning at a hospital in Vermont. The surgery did not go well. During the surgery, it became an emergency when she suffered massive hemmoraging and swelling of the brain. The neuro surgeon got the bleeding stopped. Meredith has been placed in a drug induced coma and the doctors say it will be one week before they will know her prospects for recovery. Meredith has fought such battles before and her strength of spirit is nothing short of amazing. When she was a young teenager, she was at home doing homework one night and was sitting at her desk. A candle was burning and she got up and reached across the desk and the candle ignited her t shirt which burst into flames. She jumped up and ran into the bathroom and turned on the shower and put the fire out but not before she suffered massive burns to her chest, arms and back. She spent weeks in Dallas at the Parkland Burn Center and underwent many skin graft surgeries and a long painful recovery. Through all of this Meredith never gave up. A few years later, Meredith was a passenger in a car and was in a terrible accident in the middle of the day. Meredith received multiple broken bones and again found her self in the hospital fighting to recover. She bounced back from the accident and continued on. Meredith is now fighting the biggest fight of her young life. Please pray for her recovery and for peace and strength for her family.

Good luck to her, and my best wishes for her recovery.
Hey got it backwards. Her car accident was when she was 11 and the burns when she was 13. More than anyone should have to go through. I know she's in all our thoughts and prayers.
Thanks BobG.

Big Sis you know Bubbas memory ain't what it used to be.

Meredith has endured more than any one person should have to. She is definitely in my prayers.
Thanks Terri.

Will keep Meredith in my prayers. She has really had a rough time of it.
Thanks Marian.
