Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
Well...Roger's WHOLE story would be a long one since he's 80 years old, but if you're here, likely you know him as the guy who always has a hug and a smile (and a beer and some pull tabs!). He's a man of strong faith and strong will. A lover of family, friends and God. We're here to share his current journey through a COVID19 diagnosis.
Regarding this CaringBridge site however, Roger was recently experiencing various forms of discomfort since returning home on October 4th from a brief hospital stay for diagnosis and treatment for giardia (an intestinal infection). Upon returning home, he continued to feel poorly and his symptoms included loss of appetite, frequent thirst, continued diarrhea, extreme sleepiness, dizziness and low blood pressure. No temperature nor specific challenges related to breathing. On October 9th he returned to the hospital, on October 10th he had a slightly elevated temp and received a positive COVID19 test result.
He's being treated for COVID19 (details below) and welcomes your support and prayers.
