Elder Landon Howe of the Louisiana Baton Rouge Mission was struck by a car while riding his bike the day after Thanksgiving. According to the family’s GoFundMe page and Facebook updates, the accident fractured Elder Howe’s skull, broke ribs, punctured his lung and caused bleeding in his brain.
Elder Howe’s parents Susan and Leonard went to Baton Rouge be with their son and gave this update on Sunday:
Elder Howe will remain in a medically induced coma for a while so he can heal. They slow down the anesthesia at times during the day to test for responsiveness. If he gets stable enough to get off the respirator and other intubation he will be ‘flown home’ which for us, I believe, would be to a hospital in Salt Lake City. No telling how much damage/rehabilitation, but his responsiveness is encouraging.
Elder Howe’s companion did not sustain any serious injuries.
Please pray for Elder Howe’s recovery. We’re so grateful for his service and pray that he will have a full recovery.
