May 31, 2010 Health Update

 

Dear Friends and Family –  Sis wanted me to update you on Kent’s health status today and once again earnestly ask for your intercession for Kent.  Kent and Sis (Davidene) returned from Baltimore on Saturday night.  They drove to the lake to try to spend the rest of the Memorial Day weekend with their kids and grands.  By Sunday morning, Kent’s lung congestion was frighteningly worse.  He was driven back to OKC and admitted to the ICU at Mercy Hospital.  Last night, he was intubated and today a pik line and feeding tube have been inserted.  Another bronchoscopy was done this morning to clear Kent’s lungs of fluid.  When I arrived this morning, I was able to standby while the dr. visited with Sis.  Kent is critically ill, but they are still hopeful.  The stent is in the right place and is doing its job, but the disease has done widespread damage to the lungs,  according to the pulmonologist.  His goal right now is to give Kent’s lungs as much of a rest as they are able and to hopefully get Kent to the point where he has the strength to learn to clear his lungs himself.  This is a day by day journey and only our sovereign Father knows what each day holds.  The faith of this precious family is a gift to all those around them and we thank you for being the “lifter of their hands” at this time of crisis in their lives.  Please pray today that the cultures they are doing wouldn’t “grow” anything that would be harmful to Kent, peace for the kids and restorative sleep for Sis.  We cannot adequately convey to you all how grateful we are to you for your care, concern and prayers on behalf of our Kent.

    Being on vacation, I read the thrilling news that Kent was home. Now I read that he is back in the hospital with his disease being so aggressive. Know that we will continue to pray for Kent, Davidene and the family until Kent’s health is restored, God willing.

    Jim
