Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We decided to start a Caring Bridge page merely as a place to keep all our family and friends up to date on Dad's health situation. In no way is this an indication of severity, just facts for those who are interested . So many of you have been asking about him and Karen so we thought putting all the info in one place would be helpful.
He is constantly improving everyday. Even though he is vaccinated, COVID decided to come at Dad with a vengeance. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. We encourage you to add to our "Spiritual Bouquet" by sharing how you are praying for Frank and Karen. If you want to send a short video or picture, you can send to MurphyPrayers@protonmail.com. Jesus we trust in You!
Once Frank contracted COVID , he threw the kitchen sink at it (Prayers, Medicine, Vitamins, Treatments) but then pneumonia settled in his lungs. Even though he got to the stage of testing negative , a trip to the Emory/Johns Creek ER was warranted. Because there was not an ICU room available he stayed in the ER/ICU unit a few days until they moved him to Emory/St Josephs ICU.
We are praying for the pneumonia to clear and his oxygen levels to reach the hospital's goal so he can be released and continue on his path to health at home. We are also praying for him to not be classified as COVID so we can be allowed to visit him!!!
Karen tested positive as well. Thankfully she has had a milder case. She is doing well and has since also tested negative, but would love your continued prayers.
Please join us in praying for the intercession of St Francis, St Joseph and St Therese! Jesus, our ultimate healer, please completely heal Frank and Karen!
