I am so so sorry to see & hear this you must be absolutely desperate, I wouldn't be able to tell you if he will survive, just that the majority of us on here, have been critically unwell including myself & I am writing to you, touch & talk to him & whilst there is life there is hope, I am thinking of you & praying, Sarah X

Don't give up hope. They said the same thing about my husband. He had triple strep pneumonia and kidney failure. He was on life support for 3 months and was given less than 2% chance for survival. He was 59 at the time. He walked out of the hospital and is doing great. He'll be 62 this July. Keeping you both in my prayers.
