Cecil Howard Jr. has had to battle many medical obstacles in the last several years. He has always been a strong fighter. He is 64 years old and is a father of 4, grandfather of 9.
On December 15th he went in for a scheduled two part back surgery in LA. at Cedars-Sinai hospital. He started not feeling well on day 2 after surgery. Vitals became unstable, as Dr's decided to go back in and explore they found his colon had ruptured in two places. He became septic. Dr's had to eventually put him into a medically induced coma in order to keep his organs functioning and high doses of meds to try to clear up infection. He has had several procedures now to keep cleaning out sepsis and Dr's feel he has a long road ahead of him. His wife Jean has been by his side the whole time. It has taken a tole not only emotionally but as well as financially. Dr's say he will remain there well into January or so. We need help with expenses as Jean will not be able to return home until Cecil is out of the woods and into recovery. He has always been active in his church ministry for the Blended family's, Teen Ranch, 4x4 HIM, and many others. He knows Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior .
We all are so blessed to have him in our lives!
Any amount is a blessing and will help with the expenses that are adding up and are becoming such a hardship for room and board, meals, ect.
We thank you in advance for your donation and ask you to pray for this New Year miracle of overcoming and defeating this infection and complete recovery for Cecil, Jean and family.
Please pray for me. I'm very stressed out with Blue Cross and dealing with Cecil's anxiety level. Cecil is suffering withdrawals from a medication. He also has an infection on his thumb as well as low BP and Afib problems. Meanwhile Blue Cross will not approve any more time in rehab and Cecil really wants to come home. I'm working on making the house safe him for when he comes home. I realize that recovery from sepsis takes a long time and the hardest part is now. Please pray for both of us. Thank you
I'm exhausted from work and this is where Cecil is at:
Cecil is having a hard time doing Physical therapy because his Afib heart condition. He wants to be able to stand and walk. Please pray his heart does not to go out of control or that he get breathless when he exercises. He is having a difficult time progressing because of it. Please pray for a hedge of protection of the Holy Spirit around Cecil and to cover him in love and the power of Jesus to heal. Thank you
