An Update and Thank You

Hello friends,

              I just want to let you all know whats going on with my brother. As you know l2 days ago the Dr. told our family that my brother had days to live. Well my brother had other plans. We all gathered around him and sat vigil prayed and waited. Suddenly he started to improve! He went from a weak and semi conscience state to alert talking and getting himself in and out of bed and is even managing to eat a few bites and drink water. He has had five good days in a row. He is not cured and is still gravely ill but he is still here. We are taking things one day at a time and we are grateful to still have him. His pain is being managed fairly well  and that too is an improvement. We can only attribute this turn around to the power of prayer and the will of the human spirit. I want to thank  all of you for  your prayers and words of comfort and kindness. You have all helped to make this time more bearable. If all continues to go well I'll be back later this week with a project. Thanks again to everyone for being here for me. Love to you all.
