Rick and Katie Need Our Prayers


Recommended Posts

Katie has posted a message on the Hall passes thread, but I wanted to put something here because more people will see it.

Katie's husband Rick was admitted to ICU last night with some serious health issues. We need to pray that these issues will be resolved and Rick will be home with Katie and the children soon. This board wouldn't exist without Katie and Rick. I am hoping that they will get some good news very soon.

Ok here is latest- no deep vein thrombosis in legs, no cardiac damage

yet, multiple and massive embolisms have caused some lung tissue death

in both lungs BUT we only have 1 more day to go to be out of the

danger zone of stroke/hemmorhage. They think underlying cause of the

PEs may be a genetics protein deficiency disorder (testing takes a

week) or a GI/colon cancer (testing can't be done for 6-8 weeks). We

are hoping it's the first one of course. He will be transitioned and

rehabed from heparin IV bags to daily coumindin pills within the next

4-5 days. He may be home by this weekend!! One more cautious day!!

The old buggers prediction was right! No more ICU!! Hes in a regular

room now.
