Default News Update on Henry February 2, 2005

Hi everyone,

well, it Has been a long 7 days. i am at tHe Hospital for 12-13 Hours per day. However, we got a lung x-ray done yesterday and tHe report today was tHat His lungs are now clear. praise be to god! tHey are still continuing tHe antibiotics. He Had some pureed food today and tHat went well. He was so Hungry. He still is tube fed, but still needed some solid food of some sort. after a week of no food and only water, He managed some pureed cHicken and potatoes. He was not too agitated today and tHat is good. He slept last nigHt for tHe first time most of tHe nigHt. tHe nurses on palliative are angels. tHey take sucH good care of Him and He flirts witH nurses every cHance He gets. However, He is still very sick. we plan to bring Him Home sometime next week if all goes well. we Had a Hospital bed sent to sarnia today and will be delivered at Home before He comes Home. our plan was always to keep Him at Home, and god willing we will be able to do so. His spirit is still good, and our pastor Has come up to tHe Hospital and prayed witH Him as well. He is still afraid to go to sleep, but tHat is normal considering How sick He is. i am exHausted. i came Home today at 430 and went to bed witH a mirgrane HeadacHe. i tHrew up in tHe parking lot, and tHen again in our driveway wHen i got Home. i took my medication and went straigHt to bed. i just woke up and tHougHt i would cHeck tHe mail. i tHank you all as we continue to figHt tHis als tHing. it is not easy, but witH tHe support of family and friends and all of you, we are getting tHe support and love tHat we need so mucH rigHt now. i Hope tHis note finds you all well. i will continue to pray for all of you as well. i am sHaking as i type tHis note, i am so tired and weak from tHe HeadacHe so i will say good nigHt now and as always will continue to keep you all updated tHe best i can. i love you all!
