Update: Sue’s Dad Suffered Congestive Heart Failure

Yesterday afternoon we learned that the pneumonia was the result of the lungs taking on blood. An EKG revealed the obvious; Sue’s father suffered congestive heart failure. Had he not already been in the hospital for acute pancreatitis, they say he never would have survived.

He remains in ICU, but has been removed from the respirator. He also has been taken off sedation and is awake (albeit groggy and a bit confused).

His vital signs are good and renal function is working properly. Today will consist of follow-up testing, to include blood work, EKG, x-Rays, and others. It’s still much to early to forecast when he might be discharged.

    Glad he is off the respirator. I hope all the test results come back with good news and that he will be able to go home soon.

    Not sure if Sue is back but holla if there’s anything I can do to help!

    Hello Ken, I am sorry Sue’s Dad is going through all of this, and I know how upsetting it must be for Sue. Thank God for modern medicine — they can do so much more now than in years past. I am praying Mr. Burick will respond quickly to the treatment he is receiving. What a good thing that he was in the hospital at the right time so this could be diagnosed. Please let us know if we can help out in any way. Thinking of you guys. Love & prayers, Paula
