My dear friends,

i do not have very good news to report today. at 3:30 yesterday afternoon, we had to call 911 to take henry to the hospital. he went downhill very quickly over the past two days prior, and his breathing was shallow ,yet loud, and he lost all control of his body. we sat in the er for about 8 hours, while they tested and drugged hiM up. he has double pneMonia couple with infection. he is in very grave condition.
they transfered hiM this afternoon to pallative care. he seeMs to be resting better with the drugs and antibiotics they are giving hiM aggressively. i just caMe hoMe now to shower and go back up. i was at the hospital for 22 hours straight, tired, hungry and just plain exhausted seeM just about right for words. we are hoping that he can turn this corner. please pray for our faMily and for henry and i.
we will accept gods will and accept his Mercy. i hope that everyone else is doing alright, and i will keep you posted on our status.

stay strong, god bless

love, carol
