Default Prayers need for My elderly neighbor

My elderly neighbor Frank was injured this morn while taking his daily walk, . I was headed to the store this morn , came around a curve and saw a man laying in the road and a woman running down her driveway . I stopped and realized it was My neighbor Frank who is in his 80s. He was walking his new dog on a leash and the dog saw another dog and ran towards it , Frank tried to hold on to the leash and the dog Yanked him forward and Frank fell hard and hit his head. Another neighbor came running out and we then realized that frank was not breathing, we started CPR and neither one of us really knew exactly what to do. I checked for a heart beat and felt a weak pulse, I Held his head back and the other fellow did the breathing. after a few Mins we got him to take a few breaths then he stopped again, we continued for 5 or more mins and he finally started breathing again, with in a few mins the paramedics showed up and they loaded him up quickly and took him to the hospital., as the ambulance pulled away his daughter and her husband pulled up and we told them what had happened and they took off after them. I sure hope hes OK, he is a very nice man and always waves at everyone as he takes his walks.

I called the hospital and Frank is in stable condition in icu and is hanging in there, his daughter is there with him and she said he has a breathing tube but the nurse said it was just to keep his airway open, I know yall don't know him but please keep Frank in your prayers , Hes a nice old man.

Hope he makes a full recovery.

If you don't know CPR, look it up online. We take a class every year, it's simple to do, but luckily, I have never had to perform it on anyone.

Basically, call 911, tilt their head back, press the sternum rapidly and don't stop until help arrives. They used to say to blow in the mouth, but now teach it as continuous compressions
