Recently, I put out a plea for prayers for my Uncle Charlie Eichhorn of Texas who broke his hip, had surgery and subsequently suffered from unconsciousness and days & nights of 'delirium' with O2 sats in the 56% range.
It appears as though he may have been given 'inappropriate medication dosages'--several times, in fact and that's all I can say about that at this time.
Anyway, yesterday he 'woke up' and asked for food and ate some scrambled eggs! Then he was tested for LOC (level of consciousness) and passed with flying colors. There was no brain damage from lack of O2.
He was ordered to do so brief 'bedside exercises' and got 'hungry enough' to ask for more to eat.
I don't know about you, but when someone is written off for 'dead' and has his family told to 'come say their final goodbye's...and then that someone asks for 'a bagel with lox and cream cheese with chopped onions on the side', you've got to figure you have a MIRACLE on your hand.
This is not the first 'miraculous recovery' for Uncle Charlie, either. Any WW II Aviator tough enough to survive Okinawa, is a 'tough bird', indeed.
Almost two decades ago, U.C. was diagnosed with enlarged heart and untreatable congestive heart failure and was sent home 'to die'. The Grace of God and alternative therapies saw that that did not happen!
I am humbled and thankful and praise God for being so kind and merciful to us with Uncle Charlie once again.
And I thank all of you who prayed for him when I put out that global shout-out.
I am ever grateful to God and to you, my dear Readers, for being so gifted with strong faith.
Thank you and thank you!
With Love in Christ,
