Update from Jeff's Facebook page...

Thank you for all the love and prayers, good vibes and well wishes! Jeff is doing better today. Jeff had recovered fully from his pneumonia after getting home from the hospital. Clear lungs for the last few weeks until yesterday... hence the request for prayers. All the love seems to be working - that and a care package from Pam Ranger Roberts and a very fancy recliner from Teri Ebel and her husband. Jeff slept in his wheelchair last night, so this will be a big improvement. He needs to be upright so he can breath better, at least for now. The doc comes tomorrow and we'll know more. In the meantime, doing all we can to get him better and not let this turn into pneumonia. We are also looking for caregivers to help us out. I have reached the limit of what I can do on my own. If you know of anyone who would like to help us out with some evenings from 8-10pm with helping Jeff get to bed, some range of motion for Jeff some household chores and whatever else we might need to help us keep this show rolling along, please message or call me. Volunteers are also welcome for hanging with Jeff for a few hours at a time. No technical or medical skills required. I can train anyone to do what needs to be done if they are strong of body, mind and heart and ok with Jeff not talking. It wears him out. Of course, previous caregiving or med training a plus. We can't pay much - $12 per hour. Must live close by so a 2 hour shift is reasonable. An occasional overnight would also be helpful so I can get some sleep. References required unless we know you - haha! Come and have some fun with us!

I don't have Facebook, but if Jeff needs some assistance,
let me know.

All the best for a speedy recovery.
Sounds like the worst is over.
I've had pneumonia ---and once I was able to sleep I got better quickly
Time is now your friend.
Heal well.
