Cindi’s Story

Site created on September 13, 2018

Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. Cindi is in the ICU fighting sepsis. Currently, she is on consistent dialysis, is sedated and intubated and still in critical condition.  The doctors haven't yet discovered what caused the initial infection, but are helping to support her body continue down a healing path.

We so appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Cindi can't sit still when someone is in need, and her friends and family are proving to be quite the same - you all are amazing! For those looking for ways to support the Rhodes family through donation, meals, tasks or prayers and kind words check out the "Ways to Help" tab! Thank you for visiting.

Journal entry by Jenna Zech

Cindi is 24 hours out of the ICU! She is on dialysis approximately every other day as the docs and nurses watch her fluid levels and kidney functions. With a little help, she is eating and drinking on her own again - even cracking jokes about the lackluster flavors of the hospital food. She's making amazing progress on her road back to health, but is still very tired and weak. Daily occupational and physical therapy is pretty exhausting, she's up and moving though! 

Thank you for your continuous warm thoughts and prayers and thank you Jesus for answering in kind!
