We have been hoping and praying

that our Troy-boy would continue to improve and walk out of the hospital.  Unfortunately, that is not a possibility.  His liver function has not improved, and his kidney's are failing again.

His body is continuing to retain water, which is putting a tremendous strain on his organs; however, the Dr. is unable to draw the extra fluid off for fear that Troy would bleed out, as his blood is not clotting properly.

Basically, we have been told - again - that he could simply fall asleep and just not wake back up.  He sounded very weak in a phone call I had with him earlier today.  We don't know when that will happen but, honestly, it may be soon.  So, if anyone would like to talk to, or visit with him, now would be the time.  He does have Skype and has said that he will leave it up all of the time, so if you would like the details, please let one of us know and we will put you in touch with him.  He also still is answering his cell phone.

Please say a prayer for our Troy, and help us to lift his spirits and be there for him.

    This is such unexpected (at this far along his journey) news and it is absolutely heart-breaking. I've been gathering "things" i.e. jokes, Feel Better Soon images, etc. to send him, once a day. I think that the PRAYER PATROL should be asked to step up the prayers...and at this point, to include the sentiments that "God's Will shall be done", as we should always have in mind for any type of prayer....our own will and God's Will is not always the same...and most often, for reasons beyond our immediate comprehension. A Baha'i Prayer said for and on behalf of Troy ~ "O Lord! Unto Thee I repair for refuge, and toward all Thy signs I set my heart. O Lord! Whether traveling or at home, and in my occupation or in my work, I place my whole trust in Thee. Grant me then Thy sufficing help so as to make me independent of all things, O Thou Who art unsurpassed in Thy mercy! Bestow upon me my portion, O Lord, as Thou pleasest, and cause me to be satisfied with whatsoever Thou hast ordained for me. Thine is the absolute authority to command."
