Happy Prayer Request Update: Bill Turner
Sat., Oct. 30. 2021 3:31pm EDT

Six weeks ago, we shared an urgent prayer request on behalf of ApX fan Lynn Turner of Ontario, Canada, whose husband, Bill, began experiencing symptoms of COVID on August 29 and was put on a ventilator on September 11.

We've included updates almost every week since then. Although things didn't look good for a long time, Lynn had quite a bit of good news to report this week. On Wednesday night, she shared the following:

This is a positive update on Bill: He is off blood pressure medication completely, and they were able to reduce his ECMo and he is tolerating it. They have been trying for a few weeks to do this with no success, because he wasn't tolerating it at all. And now finally he is.

Also, they have been able to reduce his sedations some, so he is awake at times. Not for long periods but "sometimes" is fantastic in my books! His cultures came back clear, so they think the sepsis is gone. As for the kidneys, he still has no function, but the nurses are saying that there is still hope for them to regain some or even all of there function. Praise the Lord!

It's been 60 days today since he woke me up and said he felt crappy, and 47 days since I last spoke to and had a response from him. I have to admit: Earlier today, I was feeling pretty low, and then I received this encouraging news and the best part is it was from (our daughter) Paige, as she was the one who called the hospital (we take turns), and she was so happy when she told me.

I am trying to be happy, but I'm catching myself thinking not-so-great thoughts about setbacks and such. Please pray I can hold onto the good that I know the Lord has provided for me here and I can fight off the negative thoughts coming. I do praise the Lord for His goodness.

Here's hoping it's the first of many positive updates I can share. Thank you soooooo much for your prayers and putting us in the newsletter. You are greatly appreciated for all you have done and the encouragement you have given me.


On Friday night, she had even better things to report:

I am bringing more good news. Bill's nurse said they have reduced his sedation even further and he is not only awake for periods but also able to answer questions. And he is tolerating them lowering his machines slowly even further, so hopefully he will be able to be weaned off soon.

His kidneys are still not functioning, but they are still saying there is hope of some-to-full recovery. It's been 49 days since he called me to tell me he was being put on a ventilator. I can't wait to see him again. This had been the longest 49 days ever! But I am praising the Lord for his goodness and mercy!


We're praising the Lord along with Lynn. Thanks to all of you who have been praying. Let's keep it up!
