This is heartbreaking.
NYPD Officer Rafael Ramos is one of the men who was murdered on Saturday in Brooklyn, and he sadly left behind his 13-year-old son Jaden Ramos.
Following the horrible shooting, Jaden posted a message to his Facebook, saying:
Nikkole Paulun isn't 16 & Pregnant anymore. Now she's an 18-year-old mom dealing with a parent's worst nightmare.
"Lyle got transferred from our local hospital to Toledo's Intensive Care Unit. Please say a prayer, thank you…
& now Lyle is being moved to the more intense intensive care unit…? C'mon little guy just pull through. Mommy hates seeing you like this"
This photo (above) was taken hours ago when the prognosis was looking hopeful. Nikkole tweeted:
"Tough cookie!! So happy to see him smiling"
Unfortunately, things have not been going so well. Just this morning, Nikkole got some bad news. She tweeted:
"just found out Lyle won't be getting discharged today :( he still requires oxygen & until he doesn't he can't go home."
Aw! We're so sad to hear this isn't over! But we're sure he's going to pull through this even stronger!
Hang in there, little guy!
