Message:  I can't begin to tell you how much your prayers for my husband Charlie have meant.
Saturday Feb. 4th he was admitted to the hospital and immediately put in ICU..My sons and I were told he had Sepsis which could be fatal....the first twenty four hours was critical,we stayed at the hospital for several day as they tested every few hours to find the exact cause.
He was placed on four wide spectrum antibiotics until they could isolate the cause of his Sepsis. .His body was under such a strain from high fever and the infection he had some heart damage,we are hoping the problem will resolve.
I truly believe all the prayers offered for him have taken him through the worst.He was taken off the ventilator and able to breathe on his own.The 15 or so IV drips have been cut back to two.....this morning they said he would be ready to leave ICU...Once a bed is available he would be in a regular room for several days...they are recommending he go to rehab after discharge as his body has taken so much..he won't be too happy about the rehab since he was just released two weeks ago from a facility following knee replacement surgery. Please continue to keep him in your prayers..the worst is over however he still has a long way to go to complete recovery.
Again.. I and my sons thank you with all our hearts for your prayers and love and light.
Love Y'all,
