UPDATE: Prayers for Tim Ryerson


Blog Posted:7/17/2017 12:03:00 AM

*UPDATE 7/19 11:30 am   Just read that Tim is doing better, but "still very sick" -  still in the hospital, they're hoping to go home this week but not sure when.  Thank you for your continued prayers.    

 

 

I just saw on facebook that Tim Ryerson is not doing well   :(     He apparently has pneumonia and sepsis.    Tim is the sweetest man - I'm so very poems/sad'>sad to hear that he's so sick   :(   Please, if you pray at all, please pray for Tim to heal  soon and completely.

I just received some word about Tim. He has pneumonia in both lungs, sepsis, dehydration and anemia. He is unable at this time to use any kind of media such as Facebook or cell phone. It seems that he is quite ill. I know prayers for him would be appreciated by his family.

I will ask tomorrow. I didn't want to ask any more questions today. I don't think he is responsive enough right now to know, but when he is better, they would be there for him. Great idea.

Thanks Faye. I wonder if there is any way we could get the name of the hospital he is at, so we can send cards or something.

My prayers are with Tim and his family.

He is in my prayers. Having been quite sick myself lately and now dealing with a very serious health issue I can understand better such matters and pray God delivers healing for Tim. Prayers are powerful and when within God's will deliver blessings and miracles.
