His wife posted an update to GoFundMe on Friday expressing her thanks for her support, as well as an update on her condition.
“It has been a comfort to know that we have so many friends, clients and members of our community who care and do so much for us,” wrote his wife, LeeAnne. “Steve is still in intensive care. He’s very weak and starting to get really down on the no-visit policy (that’s a whole different story that caused me a lot of mental distress as well) and just himself being aware of his general condition at the present time. “
A previous article noted that Steve was hospitalized on Tuesday and transferred to intensive care on Wednesday.
According to the article, his “left lung still has the tube inside to keep it inflated and his right lung is completely filled with mucus / infection (pneumonia)” and he “still has trouble breathing and can’t really talk because it’s so exhausting and lowers her oxygen level. “
“Right now we’re taking one day at a time and asking all of you to keep praying that God will judge him worthy, because he is, and make him well. We want our Steve and our daddy to come back.” , indicates the message. “Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts ♥ ️.”
According to GoFundMe organizer Becky Turner, all money raised will go to Steve and LeeAnne for lost income and medical bills.
“Let’s show them that #onefamilyoneDacula isn’t just a hashtag,” Turner wrote.
