I hope your family member makes a full recovery. I have a personal history of my own with several bouts of pneumonia (9), and it can be quite a bear to get over.

I understand how you feel. I recently lost a dear friend of over 14 years who was very much like a member of my own family. I will remember you in my prayers.

Thank you bill and GW.

It looks like they will release her Tuesday to a rehab center
Just to get her strength back.
They did have to vent her but they used a “High Flow o2
system”. (no throat tube) That was able to keep her 02 levels in the mid 90's


But after she gets home I have to get her to use a CPAP when she sleeps.

I did tell her what you guys and gals said and it really touched her.
Her reply was. Thank you all so very much for you prayers and May the Lord hold and protect you and your families. God Bless.
