Michelle, I would like to place this in an area of this site that will get broader coverage and viewership. You and Mike will remain in our prayers. But I fear the exposure on this subforum will miss many here who know him and would want to express their support.

My prayer is not only for his healing but that you should share many years more together!

RE: Prayer Requests
I spoke with Michelle today on Facebook. She said she lost Mike’s password so she can’t update his status. She left Mike’s phone in his room. She asked me if I would provide updates.

This is from Michelle’s Facebook this morning…

7/3 AM good morning warriors! Another night of good sleep! I fall asleep and pray “God wake me up when I need to be awake” and he woke me up this morning in time to join the PLanting Roots staff prayer call. No calls means he was stable through the night. I expect them to take home off the paralytic after rounds to see how he does. So be in prayer for that, he needs to be still under deep sedation. Each medicine that can be removed is a +. I’ll do an edit and update when I go in this morning. This picture is from 6/20
Edit: morning update-he is off the paralytic and immediately began coughing. He also coughed as she was suctioning his lungs. Both good. On an x-ray his lungs are completely white (not good) filled with fluid and covid. But the cough and suction are good. His lung inflation improved-we are praying against scarring that would limit his ability to breathe later. His oxygen continues to creep up, 92 a couple times as I type, and heart rate at 85 even after the nurse messed with him. His urine output is very low-but up from 0, so let’s pray for those kidneys. I am warned that this journey is steps forward steps back. But we will praise God for all the steps in this dance of healing. (By the way Mike has never liked dancing)


I will update as Michelle updates on Facebook. Please continue to pray for Mike.

RE: Prayer Requests
Michelle’s update from last night

7/4 PM-If I could title this day it would be Peace, Praises, and Pissed.

I love Jesus, but I cuss. Mike is here, but this was a rough shift. He's back on the paralytic for tonight, his blood pressure which was at 250/something this afternoon, is back to normal with medication. But his oxygen was only high 80's when I left. This is what we were warned about. The forward, back , up, down, left, right. His nurse is waiting on a hemoglobin lab to determine if that may be why he's not oxygenating well. Those poor cells get really beat up going through these machines, hopefully, it's as simple as needing more blood to help his oxygenation. I did get to see his x-rays from today and he is improving.

Here's the thing, through the entire day I always had peace:about Mike, his recovery, just peace. Then about 2:00 I realized I was having another emotion-it took until 3:00 to identify it. I guess I've entered the anger stage. I'm not angry with God and Satan can take a seat because he will not steal my faith. I'm just pissed.

So pray for Mike to have a restful oxygenated night. As he finishes his 4th day of ECMO and thank you Jesus for another day with him. Thank you for making us so complex that I can feel all these things at the same time. You are a good father, and I already know Mike is going to read this post and not be pleased that I cussed a little. But, I need to keep it real for y'all and me. (He'll really be not pleased when he learns what I said in front of the Chaplains Tuesday night-but that's what I love about him, he keeps high standards based on the word of God and has grace when we fail).

RE: Prayer Requests
A couple of updates from Michelle….

7/5 10:21 AM after a night of interrupted sleep and a happy pill (see prior slightly incoherrent middle of night post) I woke at 9:40. I haven't spoke to a nurse yet. One thing several people have mentioned to me is that we are the one's, all to varying levels, experiencing the trauma. As my brother put it, Mike is actually having some of the best days of his life. He's sleeping while receiving the best medical care available, he won't remember this OR he meets Jesus face to face. He's in a win/win right now. We however, are on the other side waiting and watching-aware of every up and down. Mike is resting in the knowing-we are resting in the wondering.

We are in the ground battle: our vision is short, however our General's vision is full and long, and I trust our General even if I question and argue with his choices. I know that he sees the big picture and he's working all things not just for my good, but my kids, my extended family and yours. Keep praying my friends, keep seeking God, not just for this VERY BIG thing, but for every small thing you need as well. Now, I'm going to shower, visit Mike, and start reading Lamentations and learning about lamenting and thanking God for each of you.

7/5 prayer alert: at approximately 1:00 CST his nurse will attempt a feeding tube through his nose. This is a one shot deal due to bleeding risks from his blood thinner. Please pray for this, for it to be the smoothest ever. Otherwise he is on his paralytic and deep sedation and oxygen was at 87/88. I’ll go back to see him at 4:00 and read/talk to him.

Update: tube in -it took her an hour but it’s in and the mouth tube is out. She ordered an X-ray to confirm if it’s placed as deep as she wanted.
