Critical Condition

Dear friends,

Min Ser will most likely be admitted to ICU today. He has trouble breathing unaided as the fungal infection in the lungs is quite serious now. It was difficult to breathe, but now better on a respirator. Doctors will monitor him on the respirator and decide when to put him into the ICU. Once in ICU they will insert in a tube for oxygen and will put him under anesthetic so as not to exert his lungs. That being said there is a 1 in 3 chances he may not make it through the first night in ICU.

His white cell counts especially the Neotrophils are still at 0. The anti fungal medication can only sustain him until the white cell counts recover but even on the strongest anti fungal medication, the infection in the lungs has spread. The goal of putting him in ICU is still for his white counts to recover to counter the infection.

His family is now with him to spend time with him. Doctors ask to be prepared for the worse case scenario, but we are still praying and trusting that Min Ser will pull through. Ultimately, our lives are in our Father's good hands.
