I could use your prayers

My son is in the hospital with pneumonia and not breathing well.  He gets off a machine and goes back on.  I think he could use some extra prayers-if you could include him-I would be eternally grateful~   I am trying not to panic, but I am.   This happened on Friday-today we hope for some results or improvement.   I am not sure of the strain of pneumonia since no cough.   Thank you...

He and his  fiancé ave not shared the news on FB or any other social media outlet....nor have I until now~ 

 My heart hurts and this is a gift he gave me years ago!   I couldn't find a photo to express how I feel....


Thank you~

Healing thoughts already sent to your son. Keep hope strong. It's hard to have someone in the hospital with any illness.

I pray according to the Word of God, here the Message transliteration, everyday English and not King James English. Here's what it says about Jesus hanging on that cruel cross:

We looked down on him, thought he was scum.
But the fact is, it was our pains he carried-
our disfigurements, all the things wrong with us.
We thought he brought it on himself,
that God was punishing him for his own failures.
But it was our sins that did that to him,
that ripped and tore and crushed him - our sins!
He took the punishment, and that made us whole.
Through his bruises we get healed...(from Isaiah 53)

Now in the name of Jesus, I declare a perfect healing based on this scripture. And I declare perfect peace over you, Ellen, based on this from Psalm 23:

God,my shepherd!
I don't need a thing.
You have bedded me down in lush meadows,
you find me quiet pools to drink from.
True to your word
you let me catch my breath
and send me in the right direction.

We simply agree it's done in the name of Jesus! AMEN!!!

Ellen, you have all my prayers...

Thank you, everyone! He is improving, but still on oxygen. Doctor thinks it is one of two types-both aggressive and really hard hitting. It started with back pain-like a pinched nerve. Next day sweating and trouble breathing. He says it feels like he is breathing through a straw. He is not in ICU, but fast heart rate and struggling. We saw his color return yesterday and there is improvement. I didn't put this on FB-not sure if he wanted it out there. Thank you, for all your thoughts, prayers and kindness~ I am grateful for all of you~

Thank you

You've got them , Sweetie....

I hope he is doing better since this posted!!!
As someone who was in the hospital last month with pneumonia, it's super-scary, but he WILL pull through, it just takes some time for the body to heal when not getting enough oxygen. My heart goes out to him. I have faith that he'll make a full recovery. Stay strong.

Thank you, everyone for your heartfelt kindness~
He is home, but still struggling. They did a biopsy-taking a piece of his thigh muscle. They suspect the body attacked his muscles-but not sure why. It is not Lupus. The pathology will come back in puzzle pieces, until they figure it out. We would told it could take up to a year?!

Thank you, all so much!!! I will add each of you to my prayers!-Hugs to all of you~
