Prayers Needed For Dave Hutchins

I just spoke to Dave, who has been in the hospital in Intensive Care since last Saturday. He got moved to a private room a couple of hours ago, but is in very serious shape. Apparently he developed pneumonia and that combined with the bone marrow disease made him very ill, indeed. He has had 6 units of blood so far and massive doses of antibiotics, but things are not responding well so far. He asked me to post this and says if you have a little extra time and can say a few prayers for him, he'd be very grateful. He says he can use all the help he can get right now.

Message received and understood. He was so kind and supportive to me when Buck died I'm happy to respond in kind. He has my prayers.

Thanks for the update, Dave has been in my thoughts the past several days. I imagine they are transfusing him with blood and platelets, and getting pneumonia on top of the bone marrow disease is terrible news.
He is certainly in my thoughts and prayers.

I'm sitting here bawling because in the course of 3 minutes after posting this, look at the outpouring of caring for our friend. Dave hasn't got much family left and we are one of his main social contacts. I'm just so glad to be a part of this community.

I was so hoping for good news. But now pneumonia. So dangerous, and so common when your body is so debilitated.
Pull some strength from all of us, and know your in all our prayers, Dave.

Thanks for keeping us updated, FM.
