7/19/06 Please Continue to Pray Earnestly

As anticipated, Mike will have a tracheotomy performed today, to protect his vocal cords and to allow that he remain intubated.

Of greater concern, though, is the fact that Mike is still not responding to commands.  (He will sometimes attend to a visitor or to a movie, but he is otherwise unresponsive.)  In his present condition, he cannot meaningfully participate in therapy and he would not benefit from the rehabilitation offered at Marianjoy.  Consequenty, unless we see some improvement during his remaining time at Central DuPage, following the trach, he will not be directly returning to Marianjoy.

The lastest event has proven to be a greater set-back than was originally anticipated, and we find ourselves again wondering about the outlook for Mike’s recovery. 

Please pray earnestly that Mike will regain that responsiveness he had at Marianjoy before this infection set in — and please get a renewed prayer request out into your church communities.  This situation has been going on for two weeks, and, for some time now, the infection has been resolved.  The reason for Mike’s ongoing difficulty is unknown.
