One of the things the doctor said needed to be avoided has happened. Apparently he has an urinary tract infection, probably caused by the catheter. He is now taking antibiotics, and his fever is coming down. He is not speaking, and his nurse seems to think it my because of the infection. Following are excerpts from his daughter’s email.
I explained to him that he has a urinary tract infection and had high fever but it was now down considerably and Monte was staying the night with him. He reached both hands out to pray. When we prayed with him, he grabbed us both and squeezed really hard, then settled down under the sheet and folded his hands and went into a deep sleep. It is just a truly amazing thing to see how he lays back into God’s hands every time we pray for him.
Pray that he will have complete recovery and restoration from this and the shingles and abundant life, including freedom to communicate, will be his.
