Urgent Prayer Request Update on Ken


Just wanted to update you all with as much information as I have when I can get it on Ken's condition. Here's what we know:

1. They were unable to complete any tests on Ken yesterday due to complications when trying to take him off the ventilator to do the CAT scan. They are attempting to do that this morning.

2. Ken's wife, fortunately was able to get some sleep last night after being awake for over 2 days, please pray for endurance, strength and comfort for her and her children.

3. Steve's mom is coming in today from out of town to be with Ken and the family. Pray for safe travels on her journey by car.

4. Ken is still on a ventilator and has remained sedated through the night. His vitals remain stable but he is still in ICU. Pray that the tests can be completed today so that they can either inflated his lungs if they are collapsed or remove the fluid if they are filled. He's been on blood pressure medication to keep his heart rate up as when they brought him into the ER it was dangerously low.

We are all lifting Ken up in our prayers today asking our God in Heaven, the Great Physician to bring Ken to full health, to allow him to be brought off the ventilators soon and let there be no doubt in his mind or his family that God brought him through it all. Praying that his family would seek God in prayer throughout all of this and for the Holy Spirit to provide that comfort and strength necessary for them to get through it all.

If you haven't stopped by Steve's blog yet, Gotta Have Faith, please I would encourage you to do so to encourage and keep his spirits up as well.
