Need prayers for a sick friend!
My dear friend Philip recently had surgery(three weeks ago)and was released with no problems. A few days after he came home, he started to run a slight temp. was told to take tylenol to help it, after a week of doing that and it not going away, he was sent in for blood work and a Cat scan. that was two weeks ago friday. We saw him on last saturday and he looked great for having major surgery a week before. Then things went bad. Wednesday his temp hit 104 and he was rushed back into the hospital. He developed a infection and had two abcesses in his abdomen. Drain tubes we put in and he was put on some major antibotics. Sunday night still in the hospital, his temp peaked at 105 and he went dilusional from it, his lung collapsed, his blood pressure dropped. he is in bad shape.
Currently, he is in ICU in a guarded state...he is on a ventalator, a feeding tube and has a cathater in his heart along with the drainage tubes for his abcesses and his lung. He is in restraints and is heavily sedated... to keep him from lashing out.
He is a beautiful person and one of the truest friends i have had in my life. I am asking for your prayers that god will perfrom a miracle and releave him of his pain and heal him.
thanks to you all...
