First, I would like to wish all of you the Happiest of Holidays. I would also like to thank those of you who have donated items for the raffles, purchased raffle tickets or donated money directly to the transplant fund. Fred and I would like to express our appreciation to each of you.

Unfortunately, the current raffle only got a few responses which did not even cover the cost of the items, therefore, I decided to extended the raffle until after the 1st of the the year.

I would like to give you a little update on Fred. For over a week I have noticed that Fred didn't want to get on his feet so when I checked his feet and legs they were very swollen and red. On Monday, I took Fred to see the specialist and it seems that his kidney functions are failing faster then expected. This puts a whole new urgency to get a liver transplant. The confusion and periods of dementia are becoming more frequently due to the high ammonia levels going to his brain.

Due to the stress I have developed ulcers and a infection in my lower intestine which is being treated with 4 different antibiotics. But my faith that God will continue to help me through this situation is still strong. I also want to thank all of you have helped me get through these rough times. Let us pray that next year will be better.
