Alvin Beadles – Update #11

Most of the Dad’s mental fog has cleared and as expected, he is squarely facing the reality of his situation. If just plain tired were Oklahoma, he’s somewhere around El Salvador. Apparently spending 10 days at the doorway of death takes it out of a guy.

His body systems seem to be cooperating to a degree that allows the Professionals to talk about him being graduated from ICU very soon, then going home someday. We don’t press for a guess. We’re just excited they are increasingly convinced he will actually leave through the front doors instead of the back.

You honor us by sharing our burden. May the Lord be pleased to give Dad a strong and stable blood pressure, the ability to walk unassisted and lungs free of staph pneumonia.

  1. I am pianist at Weatherford, FBC. We went through much this same situation with my brother. He was in recuperation mode from August 27 when his heart chambers separated after being taken off the bypass until February. Keep holding to God and His timing. So glad Alvin is off the ventilator. That is always such a milestone.
    Wishing you all the best.
