We Need Another Miracle

We need some big prayers today. Dad's lungs are looking worse. It seems to be clearing up a few days ago but they have continued to be come more consolidated in his lower lungs (both R and L). None of his blood work, samples etc have come back positive for bacterial growth. My family and I are starting to suspect maybe a yeast/mold from the trail mix that he aspirated. Please pray that we can figure out how to stop the progression of the pneumonia. He has been on the ventilator for 5 days now which is not good.

I'm praying big time!!!! I'm sorry to hear things don't look more promising today. I hope they figure out what on earth is going on with his lungs soon. I think it's so great that you're spending so much time at the hospital with him. I know he appreciates having you there so much. Your entire family is in my thoughts. Hang in there.
