Jordan and I want to express our tremendous hakoras hatov to Cleveland’s unbelievable Jewish community for davening for our son, Chaim Shmuel Dovid hakohen ben Tikvah Leah, Shmuel Schottenstein, for weeks on end. Hashem has listened to all of our tefilos and I wanted to update you on his condition. B”H he is out of the COVID ICU and in the regular ICU. He was on an ECMO machine for about 6 weeks, a machine that pumps his blood and breathes for him so his lungs and body could rest and heal. They took him off the ecmo last Motza’ai Shabbos. He still has a trache and they’re slowly weaning him off it and all the sedation he has been on. Yesterday and today were the first days that he has begun to respond by blinking, moving his mouth, moving his head, and squeezing my daughter in law’s hand. He’s still in a lot of pain and will have to undergo extensive rehab but B”H we are finally seeing some improvement.
We ask that you still take out a few minutes of your time to daven for him as he still needs many refuos and yeshuos. If you want to join the Tehillim WhatsApp you can join on https://chat.whatsapp.com/Lmlaca2NOB60OWFXqU2mbs.
IY”H with our constant tefilos Hashem should give him a refuah shlaima bimheirah and return him to his wife and children.
