Dale Kompik's Recovery Miracle

Dale Kompik had surgery November 13th and they removed his right, collapsed lung and then performed another surgery to reroute his blood through his heart as he is full of infection throughout his whole body. They have tried all the antibiotics available and have taken a culture trying to grow it so they can make an antibiotic to fight it. He is septic and is in grave condition. Dale is in a medically induced coma and is touch and go in ICU. His oxygen levels have gone down so they are closely monitoring that, his white blood count and swelling throughout his body. His kidneys and liver are shutting down. The doctors are trying to keep him as stable as possible and didn't give much hope of him lasting overnight, but Dale continues to fight.  The doctors and nurses are working hard to help Dale's body to balance itself out and keep fighting the infection. His body needs to be able to focus on his core and his vital organs. We have given them permission to amputate his legs in the hopes that this will allow his body to focus where it needs to. This is such a hard thought - he's such an active person. His liver, kidneys, and digestive system aren't working like they need to. His acid levels need to go down. His body needs to fight the infection. God is the God of new life and of creating order out of chaos - Dale's body needs new life and order. Keep praying. Please help with medical and hospital expenses for this family!
