View Full Version : Prayer Request for DH's Coworker

Sorry to bother y'all again.

My dh just found out that one of his coworkers from down south (same agency...different city) went in for knee surgery this morning.

The anesthesia went to his heart and stopped it. They got it beating again, but his brain went without oxygen for a bit. He's in a coma now and not doing well.

Dh is devastated. They played softball together when we lived down there. We used to go to his New Year's Eve block parties...

His name is Frank. He has two children a few years younger than mine.

Thanks, all.

Just a quick update...

He's off the ventilator, despite a really rough night. His fever spiked at 103 degrees, so the doctors had to pack him with ice.

He's still in the coma -- partially induced on purpose. They never did operate on his knee...it's doubtful if they ever will at this point.

Thanks a bunch!
