    Oh my...I havent been keeping up on posts lately. I had assumed this post was still about your recovering plants and hadn't read updates. I am so sorry to hear about your husband! I will keep him in our prayers.

    We continue praying for Philip and you, Maura. We hope he will get stronger every day. Kinda' puts everything in perspective, doesn't it?

    Wow, Maura. I am so sorry to hear that he is not responding well, YET. Please know that we all do care about the two of you. I will also add you to my prayers. They can work miracles these days. PM me if you need to offload some worries. I have broad shoulders and am willing to listen.

    Thanks, everyone - your thoughts and prayers are very dear to us.

    On a more down note, Phillip's blood pressure plummeted during the intubation, so the drs. have put in a central line in order to give him all the meds, including meds to raise his BP, more efficiently. When I last spoke to them late last night, he was resting comfortably under mild sedation. He really needed the rest!

    I'm heading in to the hospital later this morning to find out what I can about test results and I'll keep you posted.
