prayers for Jimmy

I am asking anyone to please pray for my friend Jimmy.

He is a big fan of WDW. He takes his family there once a year.
He took his family last Monday to WDW. He wasn't feeling well when he left but figured he would be OK. He spent the rest of the week in the hotel room while his wife took his two kids into the parks. On Friday, he was rushed to the hospital.

He has severe pneumonia do to complications from H1N1.
The doctors have given him every antibiotic/treatment but nothing is working. His lungs are almost completely filled. Things do not look good. The doctors are only giving him a 40% chance of making it.

He needs all the prayers he can get from his fellow Disney fans.

Thanks

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend Jimmy. I hope he gets better soon.
Just recently i had my ex girlfriend, Best friend, and Uncle in three different hospitals. It was really tough on me.
I'll be praying for him!

Update

UDPATE on the email I wrote a couple weeks ago.

Miracles do happen and prayers do work.
2 weeks ago Jimmy's wife was told they were going to have to put in a trach. because his lungs were not healing. They waited until the next morning. That morning she pleaded with the doctors to try to take him off the respirator one more time (because he had a good night)
Long story short --
They did. He was able to breath on his own, and he made it home for Thanksgiving.
He still has a long road of therapy, but he is here with his family

Thank you for all the kind thoughts and prayers.

God Bless You!
