Hi everybody!  Yesterday I was completely absent from internet.  I spent most of the day sleeping and feeling out of sorts.  

1) Later in the afternoon I found out that they were admitting Mark’s dad to the hospital for some tests.  They think it is either his gall bladder or appendix.  He went to the emergency with extreme stomach pain.  That’s all we know as of right now.  Please add him to your prayers, his name is Al.

2) I got an e-mail from mom (plus talked to her last night on the phone).  Dad is in a regular hospital room right now.  Here is a clip of the e-mail she sent me;

As far as they can tell the clamps on Dad’s ulcer is holding and his blood count is coming up.  He had real food for the first time tonight.  He wants me there all the time and when I got there this morning he was at the door.  The nurse was saying 
“I told you not to do that.”.  He said he called me and I did not answer so he called Bob at 5:50 a.m. because he was scared and did not know where I was. I have been going to the hospital between 5 – 7 every morning  and leaving 8 – 10 p.m.. I stayed all night Sat. night and got very little sleep so  came home last night and tonight.  I wrote notes for him with my phone numbers and telling him he is at Blake Hospital and I have gone home to sleep and will return in the morning so maybe that will help.  Oh yes,   took him his pipe today so that may calm him down.  I told Hugh tonight that I am worried about his brain because he cannot concentrate or remember.  However, when I left the hospital he was working the cryptoquote for the first time so that is encouraging.
Please continue to keep him in your prayers!

3) Penny was taken out of the ICU yesterday afternoon.  I tried to reach her room/cell phone but was unsuccessful.  I talked to her son, however, and he said she is doing much better.  Her children ask that you pray for a speedy, full recovery and thank you!

Praise God!  I am thrilled with the progress that has been made and keeping the faith that it will continue.  I worry about dad and wish he was here in more familiar settings.  I think it would help him greatly to have all us kids around.  Hopefully that will happen soon.

Again, I want to thank everyone for their prayers and support during this trying time!!!  You have all been so marvelous and I am blessed!

Love to all,
