Quilt With Us

First the bad...my nephew is in ICU with the virus, was improving...but spiked a temp and difficulty breathing last night. Apparently, this is how the virus cycles.

Great news...Finally, Gary and his partner in inventilating patients have been summoned to the White House at 8am to demonstrate how to vent two patients on one vent. If, they would use TCAV method to begin with... they wouldn't need to double up. We are hoping this will begin to change standard of care for ventilating patients. Unfortunately, Gary won’t be there. Nadar is head of Baltimore Shock Trauma pulmonary Dept. This is a long time coming. Too bad it takes a crisis to get people to listen!!
Prayers for all the people fighting this horrible disease.

Pam, hope your nephew is recovering.  

Glad Gary's work is getting some recognition.  Hopefully a new precedent will be implemented as a result of their recommendations and research.

I'm sorry I didn't see this sooner. I'll add him to my list. (It's getting long.)

I hope your nephew has a full & speedy recovery.    I sure hope ventilators will be available for all who need them.  These are sure some scary times.

Oh no, I just commented on your previous post, and now this. I pray his age works in his favor, being younger and hopefully stronger. Great news about the ventilating. We had just heard about that on TV.

That is very scary news with your nephew.  I hope he turns the corner toward complete recovery very soon.  

I echo your prayers for all the people battling this disease now, as well as those who will have their own battle before this is all over.

Pam I'm sorry to hear your nephew spiked a temp. I'll be praying for him to recover. I'm glad your hubby and partner are involved in demonstrating how to vent two patients on one vent. It should help more people and get this mess under control.
