Al’s Friday Morning Update

Al’s lung function is still high and Drs keep saying it’s good we caught it early. We know our prayer partners played a role in keeping this out of his lungs.

He’s still having pain & discomfort as the nerves respond – mainly legs, arms and face.

We’re encouraged to see the path ahead: 3 treatments down- 2 to go. This afternoon he’s moving from ICU to the step-down unit since the lungs are still strong.

If he stays on this path, he will go to ReHab next week.

Thanks for your prayers – we can really, really tell you are praying. And we’re quick to tell the medical workers that many people are praying for them.

We are so blessed by all of you.

You guys have been a tremendous part of our walk with God and made our relationship with God even stronger! “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.” 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 We love you guys!

  2. Hey Al & KK,

    I was so shocked to hear the news that Al had been stricken with GB Syndrome. Having gone through an extensive bought with that many years ago I can certainly identify with much, if not most, of what you are experiencing. Please know of my love, support and prayers. If I can be of any encouragement or if you would like to talk, don’t hesitate to get in touch. My cell is 804-201-6573. You have a long journey ahead of you, but you will make it through. You are being held up in prayer by so many.

    Much Love,

  3. We love you and your joy has ALWAYS been the right kind of infectious!! We can never repay you for your love and prayers but we are doing our best. Calling your name before the God of heaven.

  4. Precious family. We just found out that you both have been going through so much these last months. Dirce and I will be praying for complete and rapid healing. We love you both.

  5. I’m so amazed that there are billions of people in the world–billions and yet God hears us. “Who am I that you are mindful of ME that you hear ME when I call?” Be encouraged Al and KK, and on those days when you feel discouraged remember David in the book of Samuel on his return from Ziglag. He had to encourage himself in the Lord. Be encouraged. Encourage one another. And, encourage yourself in the Lord. We are praying for you and with you.

  6. Al & KK; We love you, and are praying for Al daily I know in my heart that God has a plan for him still. His healing is in Gods hands.
