Dad update

They're keeping my dad at Baylor for at least another night, if not another couple of nights, just to be on the safe side. I am soooo grateful for the prayers and encouragement of so many of you guys.

He was diagnosed last year with multiple myeloma, discovered when he was being Xrayed for knee problems. He recently had a total body irradiation treatment which killed off his entire immune system, and then received a transplant of healthy stem cells from his brother Carroll.

Those stem cells are doing their work, but in the meantime, Dad is very susceptible to all sorts of infections that would be inconsequential to you & me, but would be devastating to him.

Again, thank you for praying... and for continuing to lift him up in prayer as you are so prompted. You have all been such a blessing to me.
