Come out to the Concert Pub North on the afternoon of Sunday, May 31, and show your support for Grant Kessler as he gets back on his feet after surviving a four month long, near fatal battle with septic shock (sepsis).
“I was in the hospital for 4 months, most of that was in ICU,” Grant explained on his Facebook page. “I had a great team of doctors and nurses that knew and understood septic shock. Plus, many prayers around this country for healing. And all of my physical and occupational therapists are also awesome as they help me get back my strength and endurance.”
Grant almost didn’t make it though the surgery that was intended to clean deadly bacteria from his body. While recovering in ICU, Grant flat lined while his wife, Missy Chaplik Kessler, and his two sons, Grant Kessler Jr. and Michael Kessler, looked on.
“Thankfully,” says Elizabeth Kessler, Grant’s sister, “doctors were able to resuscitate Grant, and God allowed him to continue his journey here with us.
“Grant is a very special and important person not only in my life, but in many others’ lives that extend well outside of our family,” explained Elizabeth. “Being a presence of strength for those around him, he has given his time and generous, heart-felt love to charities, friends, students, family and congregations; and has touched many lives. God has given him a second chance and sent him back to us.”
