Topic: Courageous fight!

My brother continues his courageous fight back in the hospital.  He is extremely weak, dehydrated and they are working on rehydrating him.  Even though he never regained his voice fully post radiation,  I was able to understand some of what he said today.  We are not sure of what the future holds at this point due to the variety of info we received which is too much to go into.   Staying strong and supporting each other.
Hoping to get him home and set up with hospice where he would like to be!
Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes.

Thank you Iowagirl/Marion, Lainy and Gavin,
Thanks for your prayers, thoughts and hugs - all appreciated. I know you all understand, wishing you didn't have to, but it is comforting to have your knowing support.   Steve is coming home today.  Can't wait for him to get there as it's where he wants to be.

Dear Patricia,

My wounds are still fresh and it is very hard for me to find the right words to say in this situation. I hope that every prayer that is being said in the world will be granted in a miracle for your brother.
