Troy

left us at 8:05 this morning. He went very peacefully and quietly in his sleep. I was able to get a ticket to fly up there, so I am currently in Seattle waiting to board my last flight to Anchorage. Thank you so much to all of you for your support and love. Will post more later.

Called Mom

The doctors say it will take awhile for his body to recover. He's weak from being in the hospital for several weeks and not being able to eat a lot. He's started physical therapy to help get his strength back, so he's on the right track! [...]

"He's out of the woods." ☺

And we all cried upon hearing that.  Of course, things could turn on a dime.  So, while being out of the woods is significant, his health will never be the same; there's just been too much damage done to his poor body.  He is definitely going to have to have a liver transplant, but won't even be able to get on the list for about 6 months.  He can NEVER touch another drop of alcohol, and will have to be closely monitored by a Dr. [...]
