Hi everyone this is Stephen Altrogge (friend and pastor of the Murphy's). Larissa asked me to update the blog for them.
Last night Steve had another seizure and had to be life flighted down to the hospital in Pittsburgh. The doctors believe that the seizure was caused by swelling in Steve's brain.
Right now Steve is unable to speak, but is lucid and can understand everything happening around him.
The doctors are considering surgery to relieve some of the pressure on the brain. There are risks associated with the surgery [not exactly sure what], and because of this, the family will need to make some decisions regarding the best way forward.
Please be praying for the Murphy family and for Steve. We serve a God who cares so deeply about Steve that He sent His precious Son to die in Steve's place. If God would do such an incredibly loving thing, He'll take care of the Murphy's and hear our prayers. So let's pray.
