Donald Keith Merwin
Organized by: Maudie Boden
Dear Friends and Family, we reach out to you in this time of need. As many of you may know from our Facebook posts and phone calls my Dad ( Donald Keith Merwin) is on life support at this time. We all have more questions than answers. However the facts that we do know are. He awoke mid morning on 9/3 and was not feeling well. which we thought was to be expected due to the angioplasty and stent replacement on 8/26. at that time my mom (Sammie Merwin) was monitoring his oxygen levels. they were very low mostly within the 40 to 50 range. Mom called 911 when he became unresponsive. they landed the mdi- Vac across the highway. the EMTs started to transport him to the chopper when He flat lined. They brought him back with expert CPR skills and drove him to Cheyenne. While tring to stabilize him to transport per flight to OKC Heart Hospital. He flat lined again. the plan of treatment is to bring his body temp low to try and counter act any more brain damage from oxygen deprivation. Then to warm his body while still keeping him sedated in hopes that he may become responave. The Doctors said that optimistically we will be here a least one week to 10 days. We are asking for your support for those who are supporting him. The support you give will provide meals clothing and hygiene during their bed side vigil. Thank you all so much for your love and support in this time of crisis.
