Kathleen, That's great news!

I love it when I can remove someone from the Prayer List because they are better.

Scott (sgrandjean) - made an unexpected trip to the emergency department by ambulance after complaining of chest pain, shortness of breath and dizziness while sparring with a fellow cadet during a defensive tactics session at the police academy. ECGs, chest x-ray and cardiac enzymes all came back normal. Spent he night in the clinical decision unit for observation. Blood pressure when EMS arrived was 175/115. Now, it is hovering around 144/98. Will be starting blood pressure medicine and having a stress test this week. I would appreciate some spare good thoughts and prayers. Thanks! 16 June 2012.
Gunnar - Marge and Dave's (Wiley) 8-month-old Great Nephew has been diagnosed with GERD, intestinal malformation and reactive airway disease. (3 Jan 2011) He is scheduled for surgery this week and they've been advised there is a high mortality rate in young patients with his advanced symptoms. Update 7 Jan 2011 - Gunner survived the surgery, which the doctors rated at 70% successful. Tests are being run and the doctors will offer a prognosis once those are completed.
Everyone is in a bit of shock and the strength of your prayers will be appreciated beyond words. Especially for Gunnar's Mom and Dad. UPDATE 6/12/11 - Gunnar has had many ups and downs since last post. Prognosis goes up and down. He celebrated his first birthday in April. Update 27 Oct 2011 - Gunnar has taken a major turn for the worse following a flu shot. Update 19 June 2012 - Gunnar continues to fight the effects of the disease but has shown amazing resilience and adapts much better than previously.
Fred S. - Marge's friend. (23 Dec 2010) A few days ago his wife noticed a droop to the side of his face. Immediate medical attention revealed a brain tumor and was followed by surgery. Not all of it could be removed and they are waiting for test results. Update 8 Jan 2011 The tumor is malignant. There are no standard treatment options available and he has been given up to a year to live. A medical trial is maybe available and the family is weighing the pros and cons of life extension versus quality of life. UPDATE 6/12/11 - Fred is defying the odds and is feeling good and even active...played a few holes of golf with his wife. He is working on memory books and tapes for his grandkids. His attitude is amazing. Update 19 June 2012 - Fred S continues to participate in the drug study and of the eight people in the study, he is one of seven that have not only lived almost a year past the prognosis, but is traveling, playing golf and working part time. Walking miracles!

We have good news to report. Laura had a checkup with her doc on Wednesday and the latest xrays show her lungs are doing fine. Still has to build her stamina back up, but she's way around the corner.

Clyde, I happily request that Laura be taken off the prayer list. Thank you every body.

I got an update on Terry. She is home, thinking pretty well and learning to walk better. Her doctors have pronounced her a miracle and her progress has exceeded their expectations of her ultimate recovery chances!!!! The family thanks everyone for praying for her and they are grateful for her inclusion on our Prayer List.

We have another to add tonight too. A friend from our cabin neighborhood, Shari G, was in a horrific accident this week. She was T-Boned at 60mph by a red light runner. Jaws of life needed to extricate her. She has been in ICU with broken vertebrae, collapsed lung, internal injuries and bruising over most of her body. Prognosis is now looking better and she really needs our prayers for recovery. She has a six year old boy that needs her. Please add Shari to those you support each day.

He has withdrawn from Dan and is generally pulling away from his support structure. We are working on getting him to agree to seeing a doctor, but he is of course worried about being seen as weak. Obviously this has been trying for us, and his wife and I would appreciate your prayers. 24 Jan 2012

I have an appointment at the Cleveland Clinic this Thursday and one next week at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. I feel Jesus is leading me to Pittsburgh and would appreciate a continuance of your prayers. Update 14 June 2011 - Don is still suffering and needs our prayers and positive thoughts.

I'm happy.

It's not the Florida sun, as I do protect myself with hats and sunscreen.

I'm a fared skinned Irishman who suffered many sunburns as a child. Who knew
back then what it could do many, many years later?

Just gotta keep paying attention to changes to my skin and go back to the dermatologist every 6 months for checkups.
