Richard, Unit23 is in the Hospital.

Post by Trapper267 » Saturday, 05 October 2013, 19:42 PM

2WR230, Richard Pullen, Of Elgin, South Carolina,,,,,has had pneumonia for the last 3 months and on 10/2/2013 had a massive coronary. He is in ICU at the Providence Hospital, 2435 Forest Dr., Columbia, SC 29204. His wife says that he is a little better but not out of the woods by no means. This heart attack has put a hole in Richard's heart and surgery needs to scheduled for repair. Upon entering the hospital, the doctors told his family that few people survive this type of coronary, but is optimistic at this time. The family requsts that all his friends keep Richard in their prayers and I'll take it upon myself to add that everyone that talked to Richard, PLEASE send a "get Well" card for encouragement for his recovery. Please accept my gratitude for your cards and prayers....

UPDATE

Richard has lapsed into a coma as of a few hours ago. Your prayers are needed more than ever now. For those that would like to send Richard's family cards and such, please search QRZ. com with Richard's call which is KK4NGQ. There you will find his home address. Thank you for all of you guy's support in this time of need for Richard's family!
Please think and pray for Richard.

May our merciful God watch over Richard and his family in this troubling time. Give them all the strength and courage to get through. Comfort them during their grief. All good things come from You, and You alone have the power to heal. We pray that You heal Richard and make him well again. In Jesus name, Amen.

UPDATE.

Richard came thru the surgery and is recovering. However, the doctors need to do a 2nd surgery to repair a different part of his heart found while doing the first surgery. The first surgery took something like 7 hours to complete and the doctors decided to let Richard recoup from that b4 going back in. Please keep the prayers going in to the good LORD above for Richard's well being, he needs all his friends at this time.

Keep the prayers coming, he's not out of the wood's yet.

UPDATE

Richard did ok with 2nd surgery, but is still on dialysis due to anethesia, not much improvement. Still on respirator, but brain activity shows increase when wife touches hand and speaks to him. Progress is slow, but continueing. Basicly hold his own so far!


Keep the prayers coming.

UPDATE Sorry for not posting this sooner but I have been busy! Richard is improving steadily after having the tracheotomy done. He is also having dialysis twice a day. He is awake and is showing limited communication. He knows when and what family member is there beside him. Please dont stop the cards or prayers yet folks, he is better, but still has a long hard struggle ahead. Our prayers are working, keep letting Richard know he has alot of caring friends supporting him and wishing him a speedy recovery! "Thank you Heavenly Father, for the Grace you have shown to Richard. Please keep him in your thoughts and help him heal. In Jesus' name we pray.........AMEN

UPDATE
Richard has been upgraded again. He is being taken off the respirator during the day and only has it during his sleep. He has been reintroduced to solid food and will have grits in the morning. They are scheduling him for moving to a rehabilitation center in the next few days. However, the only downside is that Richard will lose 5 toes. Two on one foot and three on the other, due to lack of circulation issues. Let's all thank GOD for his recovery and keep praying for his continuing progress........PRAISE THE LORD!

UPDATE.....

I got a call on my phone and low and behold it was Richard.
He's doing good and the DR's amputated his toes on both feet. They repaired the hole in his heart and they also have to cut out one bad spot in his heart and put in a patch. I asked Richard if it was like cutting out a rust spot on a car and patching in new sheet metal and he said yes.

He's in good spirit's and sound's very good. He said all he's had to eat is juice and his voice was some times hard to understand because of a little dry mouth.

He has been getting on skype alot and if you want to add him to skype his handle is aircaptain152

He's still not out of the wood's yet and still in the hospital so keep the prayers coming and Richard did say to thank everyone for there support and prayers..

I got another update from TeddyBear on Richard.

UPDATE
Hello everyone. I called Richard today and he is in a rehabilitation center. He has to learn to walk again with out 2 toes on one foot and 3 toes on the other. He is doing well and continues to need your prayers and wishes. He says he Thanks everyone for their prayers and is grateful for all his friends. He also said that he has another surgery coming up to fix another small hole in his heart yet but only after he recovers from the previous surgeries to date. He is in good spirits and can't wait to get back to the radio and computer on a more regular basis. So folks, keep giving out the prayers and wish Richard a speedy recovery so he can get back to a more normal life while talking on the radio and computer!!
P.S. Anyone wishing to call Richard, please do so after 4pm in the afternoon so as to not interferr with his therapy. His number is 803-382-2315, call and wish him well!!!!

It's looking better, Still need prayers and kind thought's.

I got another update from TeddyBear to pass along.

UPDATE
Richard called me last night on Skype. He is doing a lot better now! He was cheerful and joking with me, seemed to be having a good time. We chatted for 20 minutes or so and I found out that he indeed lose all of his toes in the last surgery, but is in good spirits all the same. We video chatted and he got to see my newest grandson who is only 9 months old. Richard seemed to like watching Tyson(my g'son) jump while talking giberish to him! That's all I have for now but please keep the prayers and good wishes for Richard going out !!!

Now i have one to pass along..

Richard called me on Skype on Sunday night and he was chatting with me while i did The Rocky Mountain Check in and he's doing very good. He sound's like his old self and Like Dave said, Who joined us in the skype call, He's very cheerful and said thank's for all the prayers and kind thought's.

Richard was in good spirit's and talked about the heart and toe condition's and he said he's Half Hearted and Toe less. Not bad at all for all Richard's gone through.

Please keep the thought's and prayers coming for Richard and hope he has a speedy recovery and mabey get back in line a little bit for sure.
