          Hey Guys,

          It looks as though the prayers are working. My sister is not out of the woods but is able to breathe on her own as of last evening. The infection came from the hospital the last time she was in for 2 weeks and having a central line put in. The docs are trying to find the right antibiotic to treat the infection and have been unsuccessful so far. I was able to say a few words to her and she was squeezing her daughters hand the whole time. Keep the prayers coming, we'll take them from anywhere anytime!

          Take care and God bless!

              Well I just got off the phone with my siblings and the news isn't good. The transplant team came back and said they arn't approving my sister for transplant because her liver is now failing and they don't think she would survive. She is very critically ill and doesn't have long to live. Please pray for comfort for her and for her daughter. Most of all I pray that God has been burried into her soul. I so despretely want her to go to heaven so I can again be with her one day. I'm truely struggling with not going to VA but my family has asked me to stay and fight the HCM fight for both of us and win. Oh please God us this gift of life so my sister knows somehow we both win.

                I'm so sorry to hear that it isn't going very well now. You, your sister, and the whole rest of your family are most certainly in my prayers. I pray that she's found the Lord and is comforted that she will be with him soon.

                        I know that God loves her and if it's her time she will go to heaven to be with him and you will see her again. God also knows how much you love each other and he will hold her, love her, give her strength and courage. She will feel the love and give herself to him, of that I am sure.

                        God bless you and your family. We are all praying for each person this is touching. Stay strong.

                        May I always be the kind of person
                        my dog thinks I am.
