Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep everyone updated in one place because it has been extremely difficult to return the many calls we have received from dear friends and family. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
As most of you know, Rod went to the hospital on October 2nd due to a minor fall. Since that time he has gone from being the healthy, humorous individual you all know and love to a very sick guy. He contracted pneumonia almost right away and they conducted numerous tests, one that required a major incision which resulted in a staff infection, which later became sepsis. This has been the source of cascading health issues which have landed him in the ICU of Banner Del Webb Hospital. He is finally getting the care he needs to begin getting better, but he is in critical condition.
We will use this website to keep you informed of his progress. Please understand that it is very difficult to return all the individual calls and that it is overwhelming just to visit the hospital and make decisions each day. We so much appreciate your thoughts and prayers though. Keep them coming.
