Default Brandon Rhyder could use prayers

On March 11, singer/songwriter Brandon Rhyder asked for prayers:

Quote:
On spring break w the fam and ended up in the ER today w a bad infection. They admitted me to the hospital and are running more tests to try and determine the source. So glad I listened to Kel and went when we did. Things can get scary real quick! Say a prayer for me and my family. Appreciate them all!
Today's update:
Quote:
The doctors are still looking into what has caused Brandon's infection. He, his family and doctors could definitely use our prayers!
The doctors still haven't found the source of the infection. Thoughts and/or prayers are appreciated.

Lord take Brandon in your healing hands and rid him of this infection. Help guide the doctors hands in finding the cause. In Jesus name we pray, AMEN.

Been praying for him! I read yesterday that his levels were getting better but they are still running tests. Hopefully today isn't worse.

Todayís update:



Just want to thank everyone for the shower of love and the prayers that are being sent our way. I am overwhelmed and so very thankful for each one of you! This sickness came on very quickly, and unfortunately we havenít been able to diagnose important aspects of what has happened. I promise you it hasnít been for a lack of effort, but I have left a few doctors scratching their heads. However, We have a plan in place and will be seen by experts in this field of medicine as soon as the transfer can be accommodated. We hope and pray for answers and direction and for the Doctors. And for each of you who have prayed and sent positive vibes my familyís way, Please keepíem coming! I adore you my fine Prayer Warriors

UPDATE. He's headed home!


I don’t know where to start. I have had every test imaginable. I am in great shape. My blood, organs, bones, all good. The Dr. said I had the most thorough physical a man could ever get. I would like to take a minute and thank Dr Saldana and Team at Nacogdoches Medical Center. Though baffled, confused and concerned, he never stopped moving forward. I know I kept him awake at night. Where there were questions, he dug deep, made calls and got answers. Thank you sir. I entered the hospital septic and they worked hard from the beginning to get my numbers back in the right spots & my fever down. As we searched for answers they chose the right medicines to achieve these goals. They also worked relentlessly to keep my pain levels down as the infection wreaked havoc on my body. It was frustrating because we kept coming up empty handed time and time again. It’s crazy to think, but I almost wanted a test to come back positive so at least we’d know what to focus on. Dr Saldana worked with infectious disease specialists and we continued to do this test, take that sample, send that culture. In the end it remains a mystery. Through much hard work and consultation we have determined it to be a viral infection. It does not have a name. It is time for me to rest for a while. My strength is zapped. We will keep a watchful eye on how my body responds. Thank you to my wife for being by my side. My family for being there to help and visit. My brother Robbie and wife Marcie for pulling everything together at camp and taking in the kids. Aunt Kristi. My good friends Bob and David and Kevin. Mom and Dad. Mary Jackson. —— I have spent a many a day on the Jackson Farm. Now every year, we continue to make memories there. It’s such a beautiful place. Rolling hills, big tall trees, trails, wildlife, lakes, creeks. My kids love it as much as Kel and I do. Go off the grid and recharge my battery. I was in my element. Went to bed at the cabin fine on Saturday night, woke up deathly sick on Sunday morning. Probably won’t ever know what caused it. But it reminds me of what is important. God bless you all. Thank you for the prayers. I Love you. I’m going home.

Did you see today's update? This is from Facebook:

"Mystery Illness No More:

Through all of the clear and negative testing results we have received through this illness, we have patiently waited on one single test to come back. It was confirmed yesterday that I have Lyme Disease and begin a antibiotic treatment today as we move forward.

With this information we have tweaked the tour schedule for this weekend. I want to Thank You again for all of the well wishes, positive vibes, and prayers you have sent our way. It has truly meant the world to my family and I.

Come see us soon and come say Hi!

God bless, Brandon"

I would have guessed Lyme disease based on his recollection above. My buddy got Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever a few years back, Perfectly healthy but one night he went outside to get something from his truck and he passed out in his front yard in his boxers and no one found him until mid afternoon the next day. Any more time had gone by he'd have been a goner. That's some scary stuff.

Glad they found out what it was and are able to treat it now!

Lyme disease? Oh man! Prayers for him. I have certainly been awakened to the dangers of this disease that I had not been aware of thanks to Gar Guy.
