Update: 03/06/2012


Just wanted to give everyone a little update on Dad:

As you know, Dad made it back home a few weeks ago and was gradually getting stronger physically and emotionally day by day. He was walking on his own (with a little help from his walker, of course) and staying farely active around the house. However the past few days have been a little challenging. Even though Dad was able to overcome the low blood pressure, pnuemonia and being sedated for several weeks, he still has the cancer to fight. I'm sad to say that today his health took a turn for the worst. Mom has called Hospice and everything to do with that process will begin tomorrow. We will have a clearer understanding of the situation by tomorrow evening.

Please understand that we enjoy your visits...however...we would like to ask that no visitors come by the house for the time being. We will try to keep the blog updated as much as possible. If there comes a time where Dad is back to a position to see visitors, we will let everyone know via the blog. If you would like to find out info on ways to be of help to the family (besides your ever important and needed prayers) please contact Connie Anderson via phone at 936-597-8452 or via email at

Please pray that:
Dad's body will grow strong
His emotional stamina will strengthen
To give wisdom to the Hospice workers and physicians tomorrow

If you have any questions, you can post them on the blog or send me an email at Thank you all for your continued prayers and support.

Till next time...
