I am so thankful to report Ken has now been deemed a ‘boring patient,’ by both the infectious disease doctor and the pulmonologist (intensivist-doctor over the intensive care).  Boring is good, especially when you are a patient that was critically ill yesterday.  Ken feels very weak, tired and puny but thankful to be alive.  We were told he has developed a heart murmur and blood tests that could indicate a change in heart function so we’ll keep you posted on those results. He had an EKG & an Echo-cardiogram today.  We are hoping for a transfer to a regular room tomorrow and possibly get set up for home care services for the intravenous antibiotics.
Deuteronomy 31:8  The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.  Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.
