Tailing the Komets

One of our bloggers could use some prayers

As some of you may know, Manchester football coach Shannon Griffith is a big fan of the Komets and regularly posts here as sgriffith. His son is an IU football player and was involved in a swimming accident on Monday in Florida. There are more details in this story. Please pray for Issac and his family.

 Shannon Griffith tweeted late Monday night, “My wife and I are boarding a plane to Sarasota to be by his side. Our faith in God is our strength. His condition is Stable, but still critical. At this point in a medically induced coma to allow his lungs to heal. Other (signs) are positive at this time. We ask for your thoughts and prayers.”

I have known the Griffith family most of my life. Shannon's father was my football coach and I had Shannon in my class in Junior High. The Griffith family is a wonderful family. Please continue your prayers.

May God bless the Griffith family in this time of need.

May God give Isaac Griffith the healing blessings that only God can bestow.

May God give the Doctors in charge an increased blessing of skill and knowledge so that Isaac may make a complete and swift recovery, and

may God wrap his arms around the entire Griffith family.  Protect them, reassure them, and bless them with the peace that passes all understanding.

I think I can safely say that all of the "inside the Komets" family are praying for the well being of your son and your family.

Coach Griffith was always good to me when I visited on trips and when I decided not to play at Manchester and instead just attend school there.  He was a stand up guy and supported my decision.  Always treated everybody with class.  I can only hope his karma with the rest of us comes through in his favor in this tragedy.

Update from Coach Griffith's twitter account:

``Just wanted to give an update on my son. He has won some small battles throughout the day, he is still on a ventilator but they have it down to 50% with him taking on 50% on his own these are the small battles we are referring to. We continue to pray for lungs to show signs of healing and pray for the antibiotics they are giving him to ward of infection. We are thankful for the prayers and thoughts in this difficult time for our family. Isaac is receiving great care here at critical care unit.We continue to talk to Isaac because we believe he can hear us. Again thank you to everyone across the country for reaching out to our family we will and plays .''
