Ricky Teachey, a parishioner of Christ the King collapsed yesterday and is in very critical condition at Miami Valley Hospital. We received this update this afternoon from his wife.
‘”Still waiting on the results of the EEG, but basically because his heart stopped they are going to keep him cooled down for 24 hours (until roughly 7 tomorrow night), then they will start warming him up again, which takes another 12 hours or so. Basically, they will not try to wake him until Saturday sometime. The next 36 hours will just be a period of waiting. Please extend my thanks to everyone for their prayers and love. I am overwhelmed by the generosity and eagerness of my community. You guys are such a blessing.”
Almighty God, giver of life and health, source of all comfort, we join our hearts in prayer for our brother and ask that you would raise him up according to your plan for him. We thank you for your presence with him in hospital and with his family. Comfort them in this waiting time and give them your peace, for Jesus Christ’s sake. Amen
