Some late developments from this morning. Doug Lee told Don this morning that his liver is failing, and it will be difficult to reverse that process. On the other hand, Bob Meier says he sees evidence that the radiation is having an effect in fighting the tumor. Is the situation critical? It is difficult to say. From the standpoint of the liver, it is. But on the other hand, the radiation is doing what it is supposed to do.

Heather brought both Johnny (just returned from Germany last night at 11:30pm) and Bo at around 10am, and the four of them had a special family time together. The reunion with Johnny was especially sweet when Don first saw him. Then Don spent time with the boys alone. After the boys left Heather spent about 2 hours alone with Don. Wes, Art & I are sitting in the waiting room acting as gatekeepers of sorts. Don struggles to stay awake when he has visitors, and also works hard at trying to be a good host. So we’re trying not to have too many people with him for too long.

Please do pray fervently.

Skip, for Don & Heather

    Don and Heather,
    We paused from our work just a short time ago, gathered in a circle in the Agros office, held hands, and prayed with and for you. What ever the journey, we know God is with you. Don, you constantly remind us that He is good – all the time – thank you. As Skip has asked, we will pray fervently. Bless you…rest in Him.
