An update of my brother Randy - He has had an allergic reaction to the meds they put him on and his liver was shutting down, thank goodness he turned jandice and the whites of his eyes became yellow so they knew to go back to the doctor. He also got a rash over his entire body that was red so in Sandy's words "yellow and red make orange". He has lost a bunch of weight since he has been unable to eat, his diet consisted of ice water and popsicles. The hair on his head hurts and he was very close to shaving his entire head.... for Randy that has got to be bad, he's got the perfect hair!! He needs sub-zero temperatures to be comfortable and hasn't sleep for over an hour at a time for the last 2 weeks. The doctors are not sure at this point what is wrong with him and cannot do anymore testing until all the meds that he's allergic to are out of his system but to do that he has to eat and drink to get his liver functing again. As of today he spoke on the phone to Starla for about 15 minutes, he hasn't been able to talk more than a few words in 2 weeks. He went to the doctor yesterday and his liver is mending slowly and he ate a hamburger so it seems he's on the mend. Keep him in your prayers for the next 2 weeks until he goes back to the doctors for more testing.

A new addition
John found a frog in the pond today, I cannot tell you how excited I was to see him. We're not sure where he came from and how he knew of this new home but he's here and it looks like he's staying for awhile. And I of course love, love, love his green color.
