Former OSU standout Brooks Thompson back in hospital
Brooks Thompson's health struggles are continuing.
In mid-April, the former Oklahoma State basketball player was diagnosed with double organ failure. That led to nearly a month in the hospital. Last week, he was discharged and sent home.
But Wednesday morning, OSU public address announcer Larry Reece posted a message on his Facebook page from Thompson's wife, Michelle. She reports that Thompson has returned to the hospital with sepsis.
Here's here post:
Brooks needs us more than ever!
On Monday, Brooks seemed a little confused. By Tuesday, he was incoherent and unable to speak. Rushed to the ER, he was admitted into ICU. They discovered that Brooks has a serious blood infection.
Another complication of double organ failure.
Brooks needs us more than ever. Please pray with me!
God -- you have done a great work in Brooks, holding him here, but we ask You for more. Purify his blood and his body inside and out. We beg You to restore him to us: his family, his friends and to the world that so desperately needs to hear his testimony. A miracle only done by Your hands alone.
Thompson played for OSU from 1992-94, then was the 27th pick of the Orlando Magic in the 1994 NBA Draft. He played for five teams in the NBA before getting into coaching. He was the head coach at UTSA the past 10 seasons but was fired after a 5-27 record this season.
