Christian, Ryan Switzer‘s son, has already been so much adversity throughout his time on earth so far. And that adversity continues in the hospital as the NFL wide reciever stated on March 18 that:
“We are back at the hospital after Christian had more significant bleeding this morning,” Switzer said in a tweet. “We’re frustrated but more so just exhausted seeing our son suffer. We’re asking for prayers for the doctors as they work to find a diagnosis & strength for Christian as he battles.”
“My heart breaks as I write this knowing he’s going through this and I’m not,” Switzer said in an Instagram post. “As my wife and I search for a diagnosis we’re asking you keep Christian in your prayers. He is the love of our life and deserves to be home, playing with his food, loving on his doggies, learning how to crawl, and doing all of the things that babies do.”
This all came after little Christian had already been at the hospital previously. Ryan thanked people on March 16 in the NFL community and many more people who came alongside his family to support and pray for him
Ryan appreciated the prayers and, less than a week later, Christian’s dad is asking for more prayer. He’s giving updates on how his little guys is doing.
Prayer is powerful. Ryan knows this and is appreciative of all the prayers.
Prayers up, Christian!
