Quick Dad update...

Good Saturday to you all!  It's Becky still...

Dad continues to be in residence at the ORMC ICU unit.  There have been several little corners turned over the past week and for that we are truly thankful.  He's still not responding to us and the doctors are trying to figure out why, aside from the massive quantities of medication in his system.  EEG, MRI, CT, lumbar puncture...they're covering all the bases and nothing has turned up yet.  No news is good news in this case I guess.

As far as the infections go, the doctors seem fairly confident that they've stopped the sepsis and that he's on the right medications.  Of course, continuing to be in a hospital with a central line opens him up to other infections but he's on lots of different stuff to catch anything that might try to pop up.

We continue to hope and pray for a full recovery.  The road is long and he's not out of the woods yet but maybe, just maybe, the underbrush is clearing some.  It certainly looks brighter up ahead than it did this time last Saturday.

Please keep us in your thoughts!


  1. Saying prayers and thinking about all of you!

  2. As always, prayers continue. Hopefully he will be able to fill in the blanks when he is again awake. I know he hears all the goings on, he has comfort in that!

  3. Thank you for keeping us updated. We love you and are sending lots of love, hugs, and prayers.
