Calling All Prayer Warriors
Jack has severe obstructive sleep apnea. When he sleeps, his tissues collapse cutting off his airway. To keep him breathing at night, he uses a high pressure machine called a Bipap that basically creates a tube of air keeping the airway propped open. Dr. Fearon says that we need to avoid using the Bipap if at all possible for the next two weeks. The positive pressure air could push bacteria in the sinuses up into the new space.
Jack has not been able to make it through a single night of sleep (hour of sleep even) without the Bipap since he got it and he needed it before we got it.
This is where all of you come in. Join us in prayer as we pray that he sleeps well and maintains his oxygen levels without using his Bipap.
We have more updates to come.
