Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
Tammy and I love to hug each other. The warmth we feel when we are in each other's arms is so comforting. We are not only husband and wife, and parents of our children. We are best friends. A hug is a great way to show each other how we feel.
We feel the same way about the comfort we have received from so many of you, as you have lifted us up in your prayers and corresponded with us. We feel "hugged."
We continue to investigate having the transplant done in Kansas City, but there is no new news. We also have started the process of determining if either of Tammy's brothers is a match. That is the goal, because a sibling match is the best match and lessens the chance of rejection. We ask for your continued prayers in both of these areas.
Comfort one another as the Lord comforts you.
