Help Carl get a life-saving double lung transplant!

Carl has been a hardworking cabinet maker his entire life and in 2020, he had been working more hours than he ever had in his career. At the end of October 2020 he tested positive for covid. He quarantined and was ready to go back to work to support his family. His niece, an ER nurse dealing with covid patients, mentioned he may want to get a pulse oximeter to measure his oxygen levels. He did so and realized his oxygen levels were in the 70s, even though he felt fine. He then went to a walk-in clinic, and they also measured his oxygen levels in the 70s. They called for an ambulance who delivered him across the street to the ER and he was hospitalized for 5 days.

Carl is free at last! He had spent the last 302 days in hospital/in patient rehab! He is joining his wife Cinda Allison and sister in law Theresa Franz at their temporary(10 months so far) apartment in downtown Chicago! Now outpatient therapy 3 days a week until he is strong enough to go home to Indiana.

Please pray for this next step of figuring out medication/a routine getting around.

Need healing and strength prayers also.

So many praises!

Blessings to each of you!

We are praising God Carl finally made it to Shirley Ryan rehab in Chicago! So grateful to all the doctors, nurses, therapists and all who cared for him this past year at Northwestern. It was a long difficult journey thus far and now the hard work of rehab begins. Please pray for him as he goes through this process and remember the donor family in your prayers that gave Carl more time with us. All the prayers have kept us going. Thank you all!
