Deborah Needs Our Help!

Our sister and loved one, Deborah Pettway is a 60-year old native of Alabama who was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis, a serious lung disease, in the fall of 2013. There is no cure or effective treatment for Pulmonary Fibrosis. Her doctors at the Methodist Hospital in Houston have told us that her only option is a life-saving lung transplant.

God is continuing to bless and keep me inspite of the many set backs I’ve endured lately. The latest being a bout of pneumonia. I’m now in Methodist for the second time fighting pneumonia. The “bug” as they refer to it just won’t go away. My weaken immune system allows it to linger unless the right string of antibiotics are found to treat it. So, I’m here again for at least another 14 days of antibiotic treatments. This will require another central line to be put in and some physical therapy. I’ll be movingn over to SNF (Skill Nursing Facility) after the central line is in. Unfortunately I had to go back on oxygen. The pressure of mucus in my chest lungs is unbearable without help to breath. I was most disappointed by this but realize it’s alll part of the healing process. Just thankful to be alive. I’ve cancel all plans to move home and will just focus on getting well. Home will be there waiting for me; an even sweeter resting place for continued recovery. Please continue to pray for me and my family. Their suspport and unconditional love has been the key to much of my recovery. However, my God gets all the praise and glory. He is worthy of honor and majesty. Most holy God.

I failed to mention in my last update that in spite of all that I’ve been through this year, I’m excited to say that my new lungs are doing very well. They are getting stronger, and in January I came off the oxygen. That is a blessing and the one thing I worked hard to achieve.
Im so thankful to God for guiding me through this journey in faith and hope for continued healing in His holy name.
I also thank my donor, Marcos and his family for their unselfish gift of life given to me.

This is an inquiry to the condition and whereabouts of my friend, Deborah Pettway. I met her in Houston in the late 80's and worked with her at IBM in Atlanta. Peggie Williams
