"Ruthe has improved today in that she wants to communicate by pen and paper when not on heavy meds. Meds keep her sleeping most of the time. She's off most BP meds now and they started an antibiotic which addresses the infection in kidneys and blood. Later today they will try to see if she can come off the breathing tube. We're on the road to recovery and it's a process! Thank God for his answer to our prayers!"
There is no doubt about it, Ruthe's physical condition is dire, and we must bring her name and healing before the throne of grace. Let's pray for her doctor's, nurses and other paramedical staff people, for Ruthe that God will give her total healing and restoration to health. Let us pray for her adult children. She has a daughter and two sons. The daughter's name is Angela, and one of her sons is Joseph. I have forgotten the name of the other son. I think it is Barrett.
Ruthe Brookshire is in the ICU at Athens Regional Medical Center in Athens, GA. She returned recently from Africa on medical leave to have surgery.
