Please Pray For Jay And Cheryl
He's a good man who has led a somewhat troubled life. Cheryl loves him dearly. I am sure that their daughter would love to grow up with more than pictures of her daddy, but please pray for strength and G_d's help and protection for them all.
Update: I wish I had better news. This is not going well. They are starting dialysis today in the hopes that they can clear enough fluid from his lungs to wean him from the respirator. He is still sedated, and yesterday his white blood cell count was up, so they have him on strong antibiotics. Blood tests show diabetes, although they are not sure if it is a result of the insult or a pre-existing condition. I promise you that if you had seen this man, you'd not have ever thought it could come to this.
Your prayers are genuinely needed. Their daughter is four now.
The latest is that the kidneys may be improving. He is still sedated and on a respirator.
No good news on the monks of Burma, though.
