Slowly But Surely

After speaking to my father's nurse today, I received some optimistic news. While the doctors continue to sedate him, maintain continuous dialysis, and use of the ventilator, there seems to be an improvement in all of Walter's lab/blood work. In addition, the report from the Infectious Disease Specialist came back negative AND the infection in his face is clearing up nicely.

I continue to believe that God is a healer - physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I thank all of you for your continued prayers.

You are right. The doctors have said the same thing, because there are certain types of treatment that create a great deal of pain and the sedation helps the patient through it. "Blog" to you soon.
