UPDATE ON UNCLE LYLE
He’s still in ICU at Harborview. They started dialysis earlier this week and that is going well but there’s really not much change in his overall condition.
They are continuing to monitor both the infection in his brain and the one in his heart. The good news there is that it is not advancing but it’s not gone yet, either.
He’s having issues breathing again and they have once again put a breathing tube in. He’s got some phlegm in his lungs they’re trying to break up and get out.
Plus he’s also now got a central line and the catheter for dialysis and a feeding tube.
At some point this afternoon, he developed a serious rash that is almost to the point of blistering.
My Aunt Brenda, my mom, and another of Uncle and mom’s sister’s, Aunt Caryl, went down to the hospital together today.
The best news is that he IS now coherent and awake. Mom said when he realized Auntie Caryl was there, he smiled and waved at her.
Please continue to pray for Uncle Lyle, Auntie Brenda, and their kids, Isaac and Caitlyn. Isaac’s birthday is just after Christmas and I know this will be an especially hard time for all of them.
