9-6-2021 NC-X2 Carroll was admitted to the hospital on August 28 for 'covid' and his situation has steadily deteriorated.  This is the last update that was sent out by Sandra this morning. He is in serious need of a miracle and I'm praying for one on his behalf. Carroll is on the Ventilator and is sedated so he is not aware of what is going on.  His body is still trying to breath occasionally which is causing synchronization issues so they will need to sedate him more.  His Blood pressure has dropped which is a normal thing according to the Dr. They are giving him meds to bring that back up.  They will be putting in an Arterial line to monitor the blood pressure continuously and a Central Line that will allow them to give meds that go in faster than they can do with the IV.
