A Friday afternoon Dad update...

Dad is currently holding his own.  He's still intubated and they've got him sedated so that he won't struggle against the tube.  They were able to get a good bronchoscopy yesterday and we're waiting for the results now.  They also identified the bacteria in his blood and he's on the right antibiotics at this point.  They are getting ready to start him on dialysis as his kidneys have stopped working.  The doctor is cautiously optimistic though because getting rid of all the fluid that has built up could help him turn the corner on this whole thing.  We're remaining cautiously optimistic and hopeful as well!

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers!  We will keep on fighting!!
