Update on John Ries

The following has been contributed by a member of the Saint Edward Email News and Prayer Request Network for your information:

Dan and I have to leave on Saturday. We think Dad is going to be discharged to a Rehab facility by Monday if all goes as planned. We are requesting it would be the facility closest to their home here in Chapin.

Dad was weaned down to 2 liters of oxygen as of yesterday and was able to walk a little further with assistance and a walker yesterday as well.

The two biggest challenges now are the ongoing fatigue and de-conditioning and the horrible mouth sores and thrush he developed in the past few days that is making it very hard to get nutrition into him.

We will be heading into hospital soon to see how he is doing today and find out what doctor thinks and to focus on discharge.
