15 Jun Pastor Steve Henry in ICU
Steve Henry, pastor of the Victory Heights UB church (Franklin, Pa.) has been hospitalized for nearly three weeks with some serious health issues. On May 27, he was life-flighted to Pittsburgh. He has an aortic dissection–a tear on the inside wall of his aorta. He remains in the ICU.
It has been a very rocky road. On June 2, Steve’s wife, Amanda, reported that they had found an infection in Steve’s lungs which indicated a form of pneumonia. He is kept sedated much of the time, and has been on a ventilator and pain medication. There has also been bleeding, and more recently, an ulcer was found in his small intestines.
Steve has Marfan Syndrome, and in the past has had four heart-aneurysm surgeries. Amanda has been told that although Steve is slowly improving, they have a very long road ahead of them.
