Here is an update from his parents…and a sweet pic of of him and his oldest sister Erin on her wedding day :).
It looks like today is the day the we will have to do dialysis. Doctors will place a line in a femoral vein and use that to do the work his kidneys are still unable to do. This is not a surprise to the doctors. It will make Gordon feel better to get rid of the fluid and waste products he is holding. Doctors have also decided to stop all feedings because his stomach and intestines are still not really functioning. This means they will remove the NJ tube they placed yesterday and possible remove the central line that was paced in Jackson last week. Maybe this will increase his comfort.
Today Gordon looks down or tired or maybe just weak. This must be wearing on him! Pray for his spirits and strength. Continue to pray for kidneys and intestines. Doctors continue to be hopeful that everything will recover in time.
The shock to his body was huge and all these issues are related. We were hoping to avoid dialysis so we are a little bummed that Gordon has to go through another procedure.
There is a young girl in the room next to Gordon who is not expected to live very long. We are grateful that our hope is real and that your prayers are so faithful..
As the Spirit brings us to your mind, we thank you for your prayers.

Blessed is he who has regard for the weak; the LORD delivers him in times of trouble. The LORD will protect him and preserve his life; he will bless him in the land and not surrender him to the desire of his foes; the LORD will sustain him on his sickbed and restore him from his bed of illness. Psalm 41:1-3
WE LOVE YOU PIERSONS…we are holding on with ya’ll.
