Brian's Home and Dad's Doing Well

Just a quick note to say thanks for your prayers. Brian and the group he was traveling with got here in time for a late pizza supper. (Pizza is our standard guest food; everyone likes it and my family is always happy to see that on the menu.) Their trip was as uneventful as driving on Honduran roads can be!
After a number of examinations, the doctors still cannot understand what is going on inside Brian's father. However, we seem to have turned the corner. He has more range of motion in his legs and feet as well as in his arms. He is still very weak but the doctors are very encouraged and so is Mom. His doctor thinks that the worst is over. He had a good day today and several visitors and I know that that was a boost for them. Dad is a real people person and you can always find a party when he is part of the mix! The doctor says they will spend the next few days weaning him off the steroids and other meds. Pray that he will continue to make progress. We are praising God for every step toward full recovery.
