Latest news as of about 4pm today. The spinal tap pointed to meningitis. It is possible this has been working for quite a while causing the damage to the frontal lobe. This is much better than the alternatives. Jeff sat up and ate solid food for the first time since last Saturday and kept it down. He knew he was eating, so did not need to be prompted to chew, swallow, take another bite. His temp was under 100 all day today and blood pressure more steady. They are still running tests. It does look like our daughter is going to have her hands full taking care of him for a while unless the miracle that God is capable of giving him occurs. So, prayers are still needed for a complete healing. We thank God for the improvement all ready. Thank you all who are praying for our boy - - he is a great guy, hard worker and treats our daughter like a lady. Great son-in-law - - I want him back like he was.

Update as of Dec 12. Finally got to the hospital yesterday on our way back from vacation. Jeff is still in PCU. He recognized me when I walked in the room. Carried on a pretty good conversation with only a few gaps and actually chuckled at something I said. Kim (daughter) ran out of the room bawling - - this was the first time in 2 weeks he had grinned or chuckled at anything. They pulled another spinal tap yesterday for an addition test which has to be sent away, but the diagnosis of viral encephalitis seems to be sticking. No work, driving, using tools, near water or fire or drops offs (in Florida????), stairs only with hand rails. So, no work for him for six months minimum. There goes his business which has been booming and possibly one reason for the flareup of this problem. He has been working 10 days a week 29 hours a day for months now. Even though he is a very strong guy, you can't keep schedules like this and keep going. He will be going into physical therapy care for a while which is great for our daughter who is trying to keep her booming business going plus wrap up Jeff's business dealings of position, money owed and money due in. Prayers still needed - - he needs a miracle for normality. Thanks.

My neighbors wife fell on Christmas Eve. Broke her shoulder and hip.
she passed away last week. Funeral today.

My friend Scott with Mantle cell lymphoma lost the use of his LEGGS but he has received news that the last three tests of his spinal fluid are negative.
He still has a lung Infection and the Cancer is surrounding his lungs.

More Prayers please. He's going into month four of intense chemo.

Reading stuff like this once again makes me realize how blessed I am.

Will add these folks to my prayers. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to pray for someone in trouble.

Same here Stan. Lots of folks ill, failing or have passed around me lately. Three since Christmas.
Learned last week my uncle who's had some great years since the removal of his large colon is losing his Will. The doctors say it's mostly due to lack of nutritional absorbtion. Still will get tests to rule out anything else.
I'll show him my LEGGS. That should scare it outta him.

My long time friend passed Feb 10.
he hugged Maddi two hrs before he passed and we said our good byes.
I told him I'll see him on the other side and he smiled and said 'yes you will'.

Awww Scotty, what can I say? Life is often rough and at times it gets really rough, like it is right now for you and Maddi. My condolences to you and to his family. Will keep all of you in my prayers for a while and pray that the pain soon leaves. The memories of course will stay for ever, especially the good ones.

We had some real good quality time one on one before he passed.
Maddi was a bit overwhelmed by the rapid changes but she now knows what happens.

Hey buddy, sorry to hear of the loss. Not fun. The main thing is that we have made our travel reservations before it happens, otherwise, you don't want to make the trip to the other place. Praying like Stan, for peace and understanding and good memories for the family. I just saw 24 family members come together on Saturday to remember mother/grandmother/great grandmother. She was 91 and in church every Sunday - - very godly lady. She had an amazing husband. He and I had some great talks - - like his building a large trimaran sailboat in his basement, then moving onto it with his wife and sailing all over the place for 2 solid years before coming back to their home. It is quite a story how he made that thing - - it was big. Full time living on it. WOW - - scary.
