Here is an update on Captain William Dowling who was severely burned in the motel fire that killed 4 Houston Firefighters. He has had both legs amputated and is the only firefighter injured in the fire who is still in the hospital.
The 40-year-old just had surgery to insert a catheter so that he can have dialysis. He is not yet able to speak, but his parents say each tiny improvement is a blessing. Dowling is married and has three children.
“He loves his children, just like we love him. He’s a great dad,” his father, Rickie Dowling, said.
Since the fire, he has been heavily sedated. His parents proudly wear Houston Fire Department T-shirts and spend most of their time at the hospital, praying for his recovery.
“God through all of this is upholding him. That’s what I prayed with him just a few minutes ago,” Dowling said.
