Day 3 Final Update

Neal was moved to CICU (Coronary Intensive Care Unit) today. He's still in ICU because of his heart not getting its' rhythm on its' own. The doctor is giving until Monday before he makes a decision about a permanent pacemaker. Please pray for God's will to be done! Thanks!

Progress: His body is strengthening, he's more mobile, and he's more coherent.

Setbacks: Still on oxygen, BP is rising again, and although this is minor his nose is very irritated due to the oxygen. He started having nose bleeds this afternoon, so they put him back on the oxygen cup (covers his mouth with an opening at top).

He really is doing better, but today was kinda discouraging.

I just remembered something though. I needed to find him a pillow and the nurse said it was difficult to find pillows on this unit. Then she came back with three of them! Neal lifted his mask and said to me: "Another one of God's blessings!"

Thank you for praying!
