A parents worse nightmare came true for dear friends of our family. On Tuesday evening January 23rd the call came in from NP police to the Kreft/Combs family. Matthew, their oldest son was in a traumatic motorcycle accident and being air flighted to the nearest trauma center. That night Matt endured his first of multiple brain surgeries. By Friday January 26 his stats had not improved, his brain swelling was astronomical, the pressure was in the 30’s. Matt’s family had been given the worst news to date, its time to consider letting Matt go to the lord peacefully. The hospital stated there was nothing more to be done all the Medicines have been given and the surgeries performed. The ICU would not even let his own mother to see him bc his brain pressure was so high and any stimulation such as soft spoken words, or the gentle stroke of his mother’s touch would agitate him so badly that his brain pressure would rise.
I can not even fathom being told my vibrant, beautiful, loving, silly, smart baby boy should be taken off life support. Those trauma doctors said exactly that to my friend Madeline. For those of you that know Matt, know that he is a mamas boy he loves abs respects her beyond measure, his baby sisters are the light of his life, his younger brother his best friend, not to mention his dad is a strong man he looks up too, and his grandma and grandpa are just like having anther Mom and Dad to him. For me to tell you his family is his everything is an understatement. We as a large group of 20 something people sat in that ICU waiting room rallied around Madeline, diligently praying to God for a miracle. Matthews miracle came the next morning, Saturday January 27th when a different set of dr’s ans nurses were on staff. Once again he was in the dangerously high brain pressures and now developed a fever that would not break the nurse called over this dr , who was their to see one of his own trauma patients. The nurse pulled him to Matt’s bedside where he said pull all the records on this boy and get them ready for me as soon as I see my patient. Dr. Miracle called madeline back and told her his son was that same age and in no way would he give up yet!!! Mind you, this is only 4 days after the accident. Dr. M
