Please pray for my dad, Bruce McDonnall. Dad is in the medical intensive care unit at University Hospital. He came in to the ER yesterday and went into septic shock (whole body infection). He took a turn for the worse last night and is now intubated (on a breathing machine), and they are hoping to get continuous dialysis started after they give him some blood so they can place the dialysis line. He's in renal failure and right sided heart failure. He is heavily sedated so he is not feeling any pain and he can finally rest, which we are all thankful for. All of my family is here and we are doing as well as could be expected. We are honest and aware of all that's going on, but we are still hoping for the best. Your prayers are appreciated.
