Rudi In Hospital ICU

Postby Wise Owl » Sun Feb 27, 2005 10:42 pm

Just thought I would let you know that Rudi is in hospital again. Went into Septic Shock this morning and was rushed into surgery to try to find the source of infection. They did not find anything. He is in intensive care and I think will be for a while. His blood pressure went down to 50/0 and his kidneys shut down completely. Blood pressure is now up a bit and kidneys are now functionning somewhat.

Doctor told me if he had not been in hospital when this catastrophic event occured, he would probably not have survived.

He is hopefully on the road to recovery. Will keep you posted.

Thanks Em,

I thought it was odd why I hadn't heard from him on messenger or see him on the forum.

Well we will keep him and you both in your thoughts and prayers.

Wow Emilie, What a shock of bad news and I am very sorry for Rudi, You & your family. Well I do believe that all the prayers from the folks on this board and myself combined for Rudi`s first surgery did some (or a lot) of good so I will be saying more prayers for Rudi`s recovery & well-being until he is home safe in your care again.

Prayers and best wishes are on the way Em! I knew something was up when Rudi wasn't in the chat room last night.

Thanks, Em,

Sorry to hear the news of the setback. Just when things were going so well. I was planning to invite Rudi down to help get some of my projects going again.

Be comforted to know you both are in the prayers of many of us.

Bev and I both pray for you and Rudi. Glad to hear he was where they could help him when it occurred.
