Hal Stillings Update

May 31, 2017

We came home Sunday evening after our 9th week in a hospital. WHEW!!!!

Hal is recovering slowly. Has a lot to relearn and overcome. He is eating and walking from chair to chair and doing some breathing and arm and leg exercises.

Drs. at Emory balanced out his potassium and magnesium and then started lasix to remove extra fluid. He lost 22 lbs of fluid in the hospital. Drs. say since no one balanced out his enzymes, that he was drowning in fluids. He has lost 4 more pounds since we got home.

We have been truly blessed with all the help, prayers and support that our family and friends and the whole island has bestowed upon us. We are very lucky people.

We will be returning to Emory soon as the new valve that was put in at St. Joseph's Hospital has three leaks. Drs. will insert a patch thru the groin and we should be gone for about 3-4 days.

Thanks to all for all the prayers, keep them coming. We are not exactly out of the woods yet.

Love to all,

Mary Ann Stillings
