Default Update on my Buddy

I posted a couple of days ago about my buddy Roger who is a firefighter/paramedic, husband and new dad. Heís hospitalized due to COVID. Updated last night is that he is in ICU in San Antonio and currently on ECMO. They are saying that his lungs are terribly damaged and that he needs a lung transplant. Realistically, Roger will never work as a firefighter/paramedic again. We have set up a GoFundMe to help he and Stephanie and Amelia. Iíll post the link below, help if you can and want to. Please keep the prayers coming as well.

Bumping this back up. Roger has been through absolute hell. Long story, but still on ECMO and without a transplant because he wouldn’t be able to survive it at this point. They are debating taking him off ECMO and letting him go peacefully end of this week. I’m just sad beyond belief. Please pray for a miracle and for his family and department.

Prayers for Roger and his family. You may ask the Drs to try RLF-100, its is a therapeutic to help treat Covid-19, targets repairing the lungs.

Decision has been made to withdraw care around noon today. I’m crushed. Please keep Roger’s family in your prayers as he goes to meet Jesus and receive a heroes welcome to Heaven, I have no doubt.
