Dear Turning Point,
Thank you for joining us in prayer today for Brian Andoy.
He has been sick since Saturday night with the flu. The most common complications of flu are pneumonia and severe sepsis, which is unfortunately what happened for Brian. Sepsis is a life-threatening complication of a bacterial infection, most usually, and occurs when bacteria gets into the bloodstream and can therefore travel to other major organs and cause further complications. IV antibiotics, and adequate hydration to reduce the acidic state the body goes into with bacteria floating around in the bloodstream are key! Brian is on both currently. Last set of vitals shown at 6:30am this morning proved to be stable and Jen is waiting on most recent lab values. Just waiting on his most recent lab values and an EKG to ensure heart isn’t affected to give us a better picture of the interventions implemented.
Blessings and healing to Brian, Mia
