**October, 2016**Welcome to Randolph Melichar's CaringBridge site. We covet your prayers during this very difficult time. Randolph began experiencing low blood pressure, increased heart rate, dehydration, low platelets, low red blood cells, low white blood cells and low sodium levels roughly three weeks ago. His condition has significantly worsened since onset and he is now hospitalized at St. Vincents in the ICU. The cause of his condition is unknown at this time. The doctors are running every test imaginable in an effort to find out what is causing his body to have such an adverse response. Please join us in prayer for a miracle of healing and recovery. We truly appreciate the outpouring of support and love shown by our family and friends during this stressful time. **May, 2017 Update**Randolph continues to recover at home. He has been having auto immune flare ups (cause and diagnosis still unknown) that are extremely debilitating. Please continue to pray. I will continue to update this site monthly to share his continued progress. **November, 2017 Update-Randolph's health has begun to steadily decline over the last six weeks. The swelling in his hands, arms, legs and feet are about 6 times the size of normal extremities. A definitive diagnosis and treatment plan remains unknown 16 months after onset. Desperately seeking a physician that could provide a diagnosis and treatment.
