My husband and I went to visit Peter today in the hospital; the man many of us have been praying and hoping for. His illness was so sudden and critical and at one point or maybe several points it was very nearly fatal. At one point if you recall he was put into an induced coma, was on dialysis as his kidneys had shut down, had pneumonia and a tube in his chest to drain fluid, had sepsisb, a serious infection in his blood, and fever spiking on and off, and other issues as well.
Well, last Saturday (Easter Saturday) he sat up in a chair and watched a hockey game.
Today, as it stands currently he still has some pneumonia to clear completely, but has no tube in his chest, he is on dialysis still but they are cautiously optimistic as that saying goes, that his kidneys are showing signs of working again. He is a little shy of thinking this because I guess he doesn’t want to get his hopes up only to be disappointed.
He can speak but is a bit breathless, I would suppose because of the pneumonia not being quite clear. They have even had him up walking for short periods. There is a concern about the heart beating too fast sometimes and not regulated beat, but he is receiving medication and in a couple of weeks if it is still an issue they may have to ‘shock’ it…
He’ll be in the hospital at least another 4 weeks BUT look at where he’s come from and where he is now!
Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers. I really believe his healing was a miracle….Diane
