Next Allentown Meetup Planning on HOLD
 
Hi everyone. I have to put all plans for another meetup on hold indefinitely.

My husband has contracted Legionnaire's Disease, a type of pneumonia. It's a daily battle for survival right now as he's developed complications. We went away to celebrate our anniversary and his birthday and he got sick. :cry:

Please pray for him and send healing thoughts his way. He's been in the hospital for 12 days and on a breathing machine for the last 10. Once he is well enough to leave the hospital, he may need to go to a nursing home or rehab hospital. But, that may be quite a while from now.

Marty is off the ventilator as of 9:30 this morning so that's a BIG step toward recovery! He's talking and already asking to eat and go home. He'll be in the hospital for possibly another full week or so. Doctors here are saying he had a very bad case of Legionnaires's Disease and they are thrilled to see he has rebounded this well and this quickly!

Thank you for the well wishes. I'll pass them along to him and I'll keep you posted on his progress. :smile:

And, please be sure to read up on this illness if you are planning on traveling anywhere! Unlike other strains of pneumonia, this disease attacks not only the lungs but the brain, muscle function, kidneys, and intestinal tract. Most people recover fully in a few months, but it's not uncommon to take a full year to recover.
