Randy needs Help to keep walking

SUMMARY

Randy is the more experienced professor at our small Vocational Institute. He is a great team player, always willing to help, and very loved among the students.

On the morning of August 1st, 2018, Randy was rushed to the emergency room at Jackson Memorial Hospital with shortness of breath and weakness. He spent the next three days intubated and sedated for an infection that nearly cost him his life.

THE STORY

Early on the morning of August 1st, 2018, Randy was rushed to the emergency room at Jackson Memorial Hospital with shortness of breath and weakness. Doctors worked quickly to diagnose and treat him. Later that morning he was admitted to the ICU after a procedure to insert a PICC line. He spent the next 3 days intubated and sedated. He was given massive doses of antibiotics and fluids to help quickly kill the infection. He was diagnosed with severe systemic septic shock due to and untreated staph infection in his blood. This infection nearly cost him his life.


GOING HOME

Randy has beat this deadly condition, and is now on his road to recovery after almost 3 weeks in the hospital. He continues to make progress, and regain his strength. He is ready to return home to finish recuperating.
