Rudi update 12/4/13

Postby Cecil » Wed Dec 04, 2013 7:17 pm

I talked to Rudi on the phone this afternoon. He is presently in the hospital and expect to be until Friday. He has had a pump similar to an Insulin pump installed and is on the drug SQ Remodulin. If I understand it correctly it is used to increase his lung and heart function and from what he says it seems to be working.

He has limited access to the internet therefor not a lot of time for any forum activity. I try to keep in touch with him as much as possible and will continue to update as new information arises.

He is in good spirits and will be back on the forum as soon as he gets regular access again.

Thanks to all for the prayers and good wishes I know he truly looks forward to them.

Mods if there is a way to list this in multiple subforums, I would appreciate it if you could do that for me.

From what I’ve been reading, you’re in good care Rudi. Hope to hear from you soon… God bless you!
