Latest Updates on Ken


Sorry I haven't been getting back to you as much I had hoped this week but there wasn't much change in the last few days until this morning so I wanted to update you all with what we know.

Ken has been moved on his ventilator from 100% to 30% which means the ventilator is only doing 30% of the work for him, he has to do the other 70% so it's a slow progression to move him off of it, hopefully by Monday.

His right lung is now showing some improvement and it appears that these new antibiotics are working to help him get over the infection. They are still keeping him sedated while they remove as much fluid as possible each day, but his fever is gone and he appears to be resting well. We are hoping for some great news by Monday.

I just wanted to thank all of you for your ongoing prayers and we know our God remains faithful in all of this. I am slowing improving but my antibiotics are making me sick and sleepy so for the last few days, I've been getting by as much as I can. Looking forward to getting well and getting off these as soon as possible. Believing that God is working on my infection as we pray daily.

I have a great DVD giveaway going on today on my blog, Reviews From The Heart. Check it out if your interested.

Praise the Lord he's getting beter. We learned firsthand this summer it's all in God's timing. But also that God is in control.
