Chattanooga mother asks for a miracle for husband, 4-year-old son in hospital after tornado

The mother said the boy has severe brain damage and neurosurgeons said there’s nothing they can do. She’s asking for prayers and a miracle.

A Chattanooga mother is asking for prayers and a miracle after a tornado destroyed her home and sent her young son to the ICU.

According to a Go Fund Me page set up by the family, 4-year-old son Grayson Meadows suffered severe brain damage after an EF-3 tornado hit their East Brainerd home on Easter Sunday.

The boy's father, Mikey, is also in critical care.

The mother told a local reporter Monday that doctors told her there's "nothing they can do."

According to an update on the page, Grayson is still fighting.

“He keeps fluttering his right eye. There is no change in his pupil dilation but your prayers are being heard so keep praying please! Don’t stop. We serve an amazing God who does miracles Grayson’s MRI shows that he should not be alive but he is and he just moved both arms when I touched his hand. And she keeps moving his right arm. Keep praying please don’t stop until Grayson is home.”

At least two Tennesseans were killed and several people were hospitalized after powerful storms devastated the Tennessee Valley region.

One of the victims was 29-year-old Raffell Jenkins, according to WRCB. His mother said his four children and girlfriend made it out of their home alive, but Jenkins died after a tree fell on his home. 

Hundreds of homes were damaged or destroyed in the path of the storms. Governor Bill Lee said during his Monday briefing he will be heading to the area Tuesday, and said he will make sure the area gets the full support they need. 

"We're with you every step of the way, and Maria and I join thousands of Tennesseans who are praying for you in this time of real difficulty in your community," Lee said.
