An Update on Us

Well, it's been quite a while since I've posted here. We've just been busy.
We went to an archery shoot in Hermiston last weekend. We camped and it was so hot that we got a sunburn! It was wonderful.

Monday night my brother was flown to Spokane. He is still in the ICU. So far, all we really know is that he has a dark mass in the brain, very close to the brain stem. There could be a tumor there, but the MRI can not see through the dark mass right now. They have to wait until it dissipates and they can take another MRI of his brain. He is breathing on his own and hopefully will be able to talk to us once they take the tube out of his mouth. He has developed pneumonia also. He is having some trouble with his left side arm and leg, but they appear to be getting better every day.

He can communicate with his right hand. My niece set up a website to keep everyone updated on his progress. They are also getting lots of support from friends and family. The guestbook is already several pages of well wishes and prayers.

We are planning to drive up there on Sunday to see him and the rest of the family.

Please keep my brother and his family in your thoughts.
