Tim Rough, son of Charis Fellowship pastor Don Rough, has issued a request for prayers for his dad and an update on his recovery from COVID-19.
Update on our precious Dad, Pastor Don Rough, and his battle to recover from COVID. Tuesday 9/7/21. 11:30 pm
Dad was thrown a curve yesterday (9/6/21), as the facility went into COVID prevention protocol, which means the place is now locked down to visitors. This is a discouraging turn for Dad. Please pray about this. We are VERY thankful for the visits the family and many others were able to have with Dad at The Villa Crest. However, they are telling us the place will probably be on lockdown 10-14 days minimum.
There are praises! Dad is showing slow, steady progress at The Villa Crest. His oxygen levels are improving very slowly. Blood clots are not a major area of concern, according to medical staff. He is slowly gaining some strength. Digestive issues have improved greatly. Bedsore is still there, but definitely improving.
An area of concern is that he is showing signs of another UTI. He just finished an antibiotic regimen about 10 days ago, so this is not welcome news. We believe Dad will be tested for this tomorrow.
Please continue to PRAY for our dear Dad! All the areas mentioned above are prayer requests.
Also, please continue to send cards and notes of encouragement!
