Hi friends and family. On Thursday, January 5, Morgan went to the ER after dealing with very intense flu symptoms for about four days. He was admitted to the hospital in Radford with severe pneumonia. They made the decision to put Morgan on a ventilator to allow his lungs time to rest, but once he was on the ventilator, they realized that he was much more sick than they thought. He was airlifted to Roanoke Memorial Hospital Thursday evening, where the diagnosis grew to septic shock and strep pneumonia. On Wednesday, January 11, Morgan was placed on ECMO as a final effort to preserve his life.
