Posted a few minutes ago by his daughter, this is the latest update on Charles:

Today was a long and emotional day at the hospital. Dads oxygen levels are not very good and they've had to crank up the ventilator to try and help him breathe. The doctors and nurses are doing everything they can to help him breathe but his lungs are so scarred and damaged. Due to the acute respiratory distress syndrome the doctors and nurses have Dad on a ventilator, they've placed a chest tube into his lungs to help inflate his lungs as well as they have him on nitric oxide because his lungs are struggling to inflate and accept oxygen. His lungs have no reserves and are not getting better. They can not tolerate the slightest movement. 

The doctors are running out of options and the last resort that they will attempt is to prone him once again but he may not make it so it is extremely risky. We pray it does not come to this. We're asking for prayer for healing and that Dads lungs would start working the way that they need to. He truly needs a miracle. Thank you to everyone who is praying for dad and is on this journey with us. Our deepest thanks and love.
