Urgent – 8 PM
The Doctor has just informed us that Coleman’s condition with regard to breathing has deteriorated throughout the day and he does not expect him to survive the night. His lungs continue to be damaged by capillary leakage (fluid) and no longer are properly diffusing the oxygen into his blood.
He is on 100% oxygen – the highest level available; the machine is set at a 2/1 breathing pattern – again the highest available – but still Coleman has inadequate oxygen his blood.
The doctor said clearly that the limits of modern medicine have been exhausted. Our instructions remain – do not give up on this boy. The one positive note from the doctor is that Coleman is young – but all are clear - his body must respond now.
We ask that you please continue to stand with Coleman and pray that he can take one more hill.
