Branden is a wonderful man who I knew growing up - we went to church together. He was in a horrible accident on Christmas Eve and is now at Harborview on life support (here is a link to the article). The doctors are saying that he is paralyzed. Not sure how I am going to handle this situation. Though I haven't spoken to Branden in years, the last thing I want to see is a friend of mine going through something like I've been through (and far worse due to the level of injuries). I'd like to go see him at some point, but don't think now is the right time.
Please, please keep him in your prayers. He has a wife, three children, and another on the way.
