On August 6th my uncle, US Army Sgt Anson Curry, was critically injured by grenade shrapnel in Afghanistan. The news we received swung wildly between “there’s no hope” and “oh my gosh he moved!”.
Eventually he stabilized enough to be moved to Bethesda, where he is currently being treated. My grandmother and his wife are there with him now. He has been placed into a deep, medically induced coma to resolve some issues, though there have been some small bright lights at the end of the tunnel. For instance, he opened an eye at one point and turned his head towards a voice on the phone.
Please keep Anson, his wife, and all of his family members in your prayers. In addition, there were apparently several other soldiers killed in the incident, so please remember them and their families in your prayers during this difficult time as well…
