On December 31, 2007 I left my job with Sprint/Embarq where I worked as a Software Engineer for 15 years at the Sprint Campus in Kansas City. In January 2008 Mary and I started Steve Brown Ministries and started traveling the United States broadcasting "Live Video" of Revivals, Bible Conferences, Mission Conferences, and other Special Services. Mary and I enjoy serving the Lord Jesus Christ and traveling to churches as we minister through We are very pleased that our ministry is endorsed and we are sent out of our home church at Heritage Baptist Temple in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Trouble Keeping Lee's Oxygen Level Up

Angela spent a long hard 10 hour night with Lee. I went to ICU to relive her about 5:30 a.m. and Lee was resting quietly when I arrived.

When the day shift came to work the nurse gave Lee a shot of Valium to keep him calm while they pulled him up in the bed and give him his breathing treatment. The nurse did not want to go through the combativeness that she went through with Lee yesterday.

Shortly after the breathing treatment Lee's oxygen saturation level dropped to about 89 and the alarm went off. After about 20 minutes of the alarm the nurse called for respiratory to come back.

They vacuumed his lungs, started him on some kind of breathing treatment and made him cough a lot.

When Mary relived me and I came back to the waiting room about 9:40 a.m. Lee was resting well, his oxygen saturation level was running about 94, his blood pressure was 122/55 and his pulse rate was 89. There was no combativeness while I was with him this morning.
