On Sunday September 24th, we took John to the hospital via ambulance he had been fighting a sinus/ear infection for quite some time and was continuing to get weaker and weaker. Sunday early morning his body gave up and he collapsed on the floor of the living room.
John has since been diagnosed with a Viral Meningitis starting from the HSV-1 virus. On Monday in the hospital he was steadily declining with labored breathing, disorientation and agitation, so he was moved to ICU and put on a ventilator to help is body rest and try to fight this virus.
Unfortunately at this time he can not have visitors but your prayers for his speedy recover would be most appreciated. This is going to be a marathon recovery with at least a 21 day regimen of medication followed by therapy as he gains his strength back.
Please reach out to me (Kim Hendrix - firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions and I will try to update with any changes here each day.
