Joyce Parke developed a serious infection and sepsis in late June. She came to the KC Research Main Hospital ICU on June25 where she experienced two heart stoppages and was resussitated each time. Her kidneys have nearly stopped and she does not want to go on permanent dialysis. She is resting comfortably and able to nod yes/no questions but is on a ventilator to keep her breathing so she cannot talk. Please pray for God's peace and touch on her and us.
