Much has happened with dad over the past few months.  He has been in and out of the hospital with breathing difficulties and other health problems related to his injuries and prior heart issues.  The last information I heard from Joyce was that he was that he got a permanent tracheotomy to help him breath (he can not get enough air without this), but is now no longer able to eat or speak.  He has a g-tube (tube into his stomach) to get nutrition.  He continues to be medically fragile and was placed in a nursing home for a time to receive care- however he was admitted back into the ICU a couple days ago.  He is currently at Medical City Dallas Hospital. He continues to need many prayers.   

Neither Joyce or I know what the FaceBook post was about, or even how he was on FaceBook- but please pray that he will feel loved and not alone during this awful time.
