Update

Ed is improving after a full day in ICU. He was running a 101 degree fever and it has dropped to slightly above normal, and the IV antibiotics is doing its job. They have taken him off the ventilator, and he is breathing on his own without struggling. He is scheduled to have a heart catherization procedure sometime this weekend. My advisor for radiography specialized in heart cath lab, and does call quite a bit at the hospital, and graciously offered to perform the procedure on her off time. Wow, what an amazing offer. I have heard her talk about how great her co-workers are, and declined the offer. Still, I am blown away. I have no doubt that Ed will be in very capable hands while the procedure is being done.


Thanks for all of the comments and prayer warriors. Y'all are awesome!!!

  1. Sometimes, when you least expect it, people show their stripes and blow you away. Glad he's in good hands. Not much for prayer around here, but we're pulling for him.

  5. We went through something very similar with my mother in law a couple years back, so I know how stressful it is. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

    1. We saw Ed today, and he is very much improved. Lucid and talking rather clearly, even more than usual. Please continue to say a prayer or a passing thought for him.
