Police responded to the McGuire residence on 12-17-2017 after Scott became very ill due to sepsis from an infection that was raging through his body. As many of his friends and family are aware, Scott has been battling a failing kidney and currently undergoes dialysis at an area dialysis center in the north metro to clean his blood. Scott has been a true blessing to many of us and always seems to find a way to help others and go that extra mile.
It is now our turn to help the family in any way possible as Scott, Candy, Hailey, and Michele go through this trying time. In my conversation with Candy on 12-19-2017, I learned that Scott was very weak and runs the possibility that the infection in his body may lead to an additional amputation of his leg and a portion of one hand. As you can imagine the diagnosis is very unpleasant. Candy explained that the medical team is having difficulty stabilizing Scott's blood pressure and that Scott's quality of life seems to be diminishing.
Candy asks for your thoughts and prayers as she goes through this journey. I advised Candy that I would attempt to maintain daily contact and create the caring bridge web site to keep others informed of Scott's progress. Scott is currently in United Hospital in St. Paul Mn. in an intensive care room. I do not have any further information at this point as Candy has stated that Scott is not taking visitors and he wants to remain private about his ordeal at this time.
The caring bridge site will allow his friends and family to view his status, check on medical in formation that he or Candy deem pertinent to others so that they may stay apprized of his condition. There is a comment section available for well wishers and others to leave thoughts, comments, and well wishes for him and the family. Candy asks that Scott's privacy be maintained at this time. The web site will allow her to do the necessary tasks of taking care of her family without having to contact each person and update them on his status.
If you have questions or comments regarding Scott's situation or you would like to offer your assistance to the family in some way, please leave your information on the web site and it will be addressed.
Thank You for all your support and understanding at this very stressful time for the McGuire Family
