On February 10th, I posted in the guest book that Barb Potter's mentally disabled brother Johnny (41 years old) was admitted to the hospital and needed prayers from everyone. He has been in ICU ever since. Here are Barb's messages about Johnny...

2/10 My brother Johnny is still not doing very well this morning. His blood pressure is still very low and the medicine they gave him to raise it is not raising it and they canít give much more of that medicine. Weíll probably be at the hospital most of the day today, he is here in Atlanta. Please pray for him.

2/13 - My brother Johnny is still in ICU. There are some good signs, but the doctors are still very concerned about his pancreas, which is still very inflamed. They have taken him off the blood pressure medicine and his blood pressure is remaining stable. His temperature is almost normal and stabilized. He is still on the breathing machine but is starting to help it out a bit by breathing on his own. He is still on the dialysis machine to keep his kidneys working. They have decreased his sedation medication. They have put this new thingy on his legs to keep circulation going. He is still very critical and susceptible to more problems, but for now he is holding his own. The staff at Kennestone is very good and he gets constant care and attention. Hopefully he will continue to improve and beat this thing but it will be a long recovery. Thank you for all your prayers and thoughts, we feel they really helped.

2/16 "Your prayers have worked. Johnny is better. The doctor is cautiously guarded and says he is still very sick. He is off the dialysis machine and his kidneys are working normally. He is still on the breathing machine but is breathing more on his own. His blood pressure is holding steady. He does have a fever, but the nurse says that is normal just coming off dialysis. Best of all, his blood work shows that his pancreas is finally getting better. He still has a lot of healing to do and will still be in ICU for awhile but we finally have some good news. Keep those prayers coming and thanks so much to all of you, it really made all the difference."

2/17 Barb just called me this morning and has asked me to start a thread here so everyone would continue to pray for her brother. This morning, his fever is over 101 and just won't go down. He is heavily sedated so he isn't able to talk with the family. As she said above, he still has a lot of healing to do so please continue to pray for Johnny and his family. Thanks!

Praying for Johnny's recovery today and love and hugs to Barb and their family.

My prayers are going out for Johnny and Barb and all Barb's family.

Kennestone is a very good hospital. They took excellent care of my Mamoo and my Pop.

Love you, Barb, and I am so sorry y'all are going through this.

Thanks for all the prayers and thoughts. Johnny's fever was still 101.9 tonight. They will probably do another scan tomorrow to see what is going on. Seems he still has not been able to get rid of the infection on his pancreas. He is holding on but this infection is just not budging.

Received this update on Johnny from Barb around noon today...

Johnny is still running a high fever and they canít seem to get it to come down. They ran a CAT scan yesterday and there is a pocket of infection outside his pancreas that is refusing to heal. They will be taking a test of the fluid in the infected area. If the pancreas is damaged, there is nothing much they can, he canít survive w/o a pancreas. They may try surgery but the doctors are not optimistic that he will come through that. Hopefully, God will see fit to heal the infected area. We will be at Kennestone most of the day, ICU Room 448. Please pray for Godís mercy.

Barb

Just received another update on Johnny...

Well, now the doctors say they are not going to operate. The test on the fluid from the infection site indicated that it was not bad enough to warrant an immediate operation. They say the pancreas is still not functioning properly but that all we can do is wait and watch his vitals. His temperature was up even higher this morning and he still has the breathing tube in. He is much more responsive though not really awake, he has been moving his arms around and they had to redo his IV twice now. So we will wait and watch and keep praying for his body to be able to get rid of the infection and heal the pancreas. Thanks for everybodyís prayers.

Barb
