I have been asked by @londonistar to write a post about Baby Eddie, and am delighted to do so.
To be honest, until I was asked, I hadn't followed the story at all. I had seen the occasional tweet from @londonistar asking for prayers for Baby Eddie, said an Ave, and carried on.
However, having looked at the facebook page, I was profoundly moved by this story. Eddie was nearly drowned in a terrible accident in June, and has been in a coma ever since.
The facebook page charts his journey - and his parents' - from then to now, and very moving it is.
I was particularly touched, as a friend of ours was in a car accident a while back, and in a coma for several months, but is now recovering and astonishing her doctors at every turn. I hope and pray for the same happy outcome for Eddie. And ask you to pray for him too.
