Today I learned Pastor Tom has been discharged from St. Lukes and admitted to a facility for rehab. Reportedly the phyician at the care facility has written orders for absolutely no visitors including clergy. Tom continues to battle with the C Dif infection though on my last visit with him the confusion was less intense than previously. Our pastor and friend remains seriously ill, just no longer in need of acute care hospitalization.
When/if/as I receive any information about Pastor Tom's condition I will certainly pass that on. Because I am unable to visit and share information first hand, updates will likely be less frequent during this time. May we all continue to remember Pastor Tom in prayer trusting in the God of all compassion to abide with him now as always. Shalom, Pastor Dianna Niemann-Harris
