Sheila started running a fever of 101 about an hour ago and is coughing up yellow junk. She was on three antibiotics earlier today, but they stopped them because the doctors collectively didn’t feel she needed them. But obviously something is going on inside. Her heart rate while she’s sleeping is 106 to 110. Her oxygen saturation level varies between 85 and 95.

The nurse contacted the doctor that’s on-call, and they have ordered up some lab tests and a restart of the antibiotics.



  1. Ken and Sheila- My continual prayers for you both and also to guide the hands, hearts and minds of the hospital staff to find the best care and relief possible.

  2. Ken and Sheila, Prayers are in overdrive for you both — may God be with you and also with the doctors, nurses and medical professionals who are travelling this journey with you. Hugs, Patti

  3. Ken and Sheila, our prayers are with you both everyday.

  4. Ken and Sheila, Nancy and I think about you guys every day and continue to pray for you both!

    With lots of love!

    Ed & Nancy Wallace

  5. Ken and Sheila: Our continued thoughts and prayers are with you. We ask god to bestow on you all the comfort that you so deserve on this journey.

  6. If there is anything we can do, we will be in the area from August 13th-16th. I know you don’t know us personally but we truly care as we are in the lung cancer fight ourselves. Sending you and Sheila lots of strength, Christi & Allen Ross
