Early last week the husband of a friend of mine went to urgent care. He was sick with a bad cold, and was given antibiotics, steroids and cough medicine. My friend came down with a cold over Christmas, and her husband was no better, so they both went to urgent care last Friday.
When the doctor examined her husband, his oxygen levels were found to be very low and he was transported to the hospital by ambulance. Once at the hospital, they diagnosed him with pneumonia in both lungs and admitted him to the hospital.
Folks, it has gone downhill from there.
He was transferred to ICU on Sunday in critical condition.
On Tuesday they discussed transferring him to another hospital but his condition was too critical and they did not believe he would survive the transport.
Yesterday they found a small hole in one of his lungs and while trying to insert a chest tube his blood pressure dropped dangerously low. They had to vent him, and sedate him.
He is now on a ventilator and they have inserted two chest tubes. This afternoon he developed a fever of 105 degrees.
This man needs your prayers. He needs prayers for healing. I do not know if he is a Christian
Please, right now, take a few minutes and pray for this man. He is 56 years old, and is the father of two daughters and two sons. Pray for his family as well. They need comfort and peace that only Jesus can give.
