Just heard from Wendell's wife (this is Keith's brother who has been in, and contines in, an ICU since May. Turns out that Wendell, in addition to the blood bacterial dissease, suffered from the West Nile disease. A doctor, on a hunch, ran a test, and it came up positive. So, he's recovering from two serious diseases.
The GOOD news is that Wendell wants talk to Keith, which they will do Monday afternoon! These two haven't spoken for months!
Please, please, all of your prayers for Keith and Wendell!
I have been wondering about Wendell...I am glad they found out part of his problem and now maybe they can get the treatment that will get him on the road to recovery..how sweet it will be for the two of them to get together. Our prayers are still with all of you...God Bless.
Our prayers go out to them both. Luckily Wendell is in the care of the hospital at this time - we had a man from our town (pop: 5000) 2 weeks ago that did not seek care, became very ill very quickly & died from the West Nile (he mowed lawns @ the rest stops on the interstates-lots of standing H20 & mosquitos). Good things always come about though - Wendell & Keith are having a conversation!
