Update on Rep. Bam Carney: cards encouraged
Bro. John Chowning shares this update on Representative John Bam Carney from his brother, Mark.
Bam has now been at Kindred Jewish for 16 days. The awesome thing is he has been able to have a visitor for 7 of those days. The visits really have seemed to help Bam and each of us.
He continues to have the drains coming out of his stomach, still has the wound vac, and is still on a feeding tube. He is also now on a liquid diet and is able to eat jello, broth, and frozen lemon desert. This past Saturday, I was lucky enough to be with him when he was able to feed himself for the first time in 5 months and 7 days. It took him awhile to get the spoon from the dish to his mouth but he did it!
I videoed it and that video has brought tears of joy to many eyes over the last few days. He was able to get a haircut and shave yesterday and looked so good afterwards that we thought we should post his picture. This is the first picture that we have posted on Facebook since Bam was put in the hospital on December 23, 2019. You can tell through his smile that he is feeling better but we all know he still has a ways to go.
Doctor told Bam and my sister, Amy, today that he is expecting him to be at Kindred for at least 24-28 more days before going to a rehab facility. While we were excited to hear that news, Bam took it kind of hard that he would still be there at least that much longer.
So tonight we again sincerely and humbly thank you for all your continued thoughts and prayers for Bam and our family. We have certainly been able to see the power of prayer and feel the power of prayer throughout this experience. So many of you have also sent cards and we can't thank you enough for those and the other acts of kindness you have shown.
Speaking of cards, several have asked for the address to Kindred and since the doctor gave us the news of at least 3 1/2 to 4 weeks there I am going to share that address in case you would like to send some words of encouragement to Bam as he continues down the road to recovery. We are so THANKFUL to GOD AND PRAISE HIM for the improvements Bam has made.
Address to: Bam Carney, Kindred Jewish Room 418, 200 Abraham Flexner Way, Louisville, KY 40202.
