Exclamation Prayers for Joe Polly

For those of you who may or may not know, our fellow Plott Hound brother is in need of your prayers!!

From his daughter Cassie "If everyone could take a minute out of their day and say a prayer for my dad, Joseph Polly. He is now in the hospital with covid complications and has double lung Pneumonia. His immune system is compromised because of the cancer in the past. They wanted to ship him out, but all hospitals are full right now. I believe he is in the right place. Anyone who knows him knows he would give the shirt off his back, so just take this time and lend him a prayer."

Another family member stated he was dealing with clots in his lungs and was moved to the ICU and put on the ventilator!

1/5 update
Joe is having a hard time last night and today. He is back on the paralytic, vent is at 100% and peep is back to 16. His oxygen is at 89%. He is also being treated for a blood infection. But hey, his lungs look a little better today. PLEASE keep praying.
Thank you all for keeping him in your thoughts and prayers!!

1/7 update
Joe is about the same as yesterday. He struggles when they attempt to lower the paralytic and or sedation.
Thank you all for everything; prayers, thoughts, lighting candles, cards of healing etc. Keep the prayers coming!

1/8 Update
Joe is about the same as yesterday. They can't make any changes due to gases in the lungs are at a good rate. Hopefully tomorrow will be a much better day. Thank you all for all that you're doing to help him recover!

1/11 update
It's been a long night and roller coaster of a morning with out of control and out of whack stats. Joe now has a trach, and it seems that his BP is now lower but stabilized. THANK YOU, JESUS!
Dear Lord, we come to you oh merciful God, with all that we have. Please see the need of Joe and rest your healing hands upon his body. Please restore his strength so that he can continue on a journey here on earth dear Lord continuing to be and show your love for others so they too can come to know you. Let him continue to show your work through the miracles that you can perform. In Jesus name I/we pray. Amen.

1/12 update
Joe continues to fight! His numbers were stable all day. The paralytic was shut off completely and his body has adjusted well to the Trach. THANK YOU, JESUS! They will begin to reduce the heavy sedation he is on early tomorrow morning. This way the DR. can evaluate him when he does his rounds around 6:30 am. They are hoping that this will help increase his heart rate that has been low all day today. Please continue with your prayers. They are working! Thank you all!
