Update on Fred's Transplant

We are still at the UNMC hospital but Fred is doing much much better. He is up and walking with a walker and sometimes a cane, climbing stairs, eating, and doing all the things the doctors want to see. He is still running some low grade fevers but they said those are very common and nothing to worry about. They did say that if he continues feeling well (aside from the pain at the incision site) he will be able to go home soon.

We want to thank all those who have prayed for us, sent us cards, flowers,e-mails, phone calls, text messages, and helped us in numerous ways. You really find out who your friends are when you are down and I appreciate each and everyone of you more then you will every know.

To our sons, Scott and Jeff, I don't know what we would do with out you. Thanks for your love and all the things you do to help us. You are the joy of our lives and we have always been proud that you are our children. Love you both.

Hugs and kisses to my family who have been our rock. Don't know what we would do without all of you. We feel very blessed that you are in our lives. We love all of you very much! To Sheyllena and Linda, your pictures have a special place in uncle Fred's hospital room and will have a special place in our apartment when we get home.

A special thanks to Kathy Tooker for taking me to lunch and to do some shopping which provided me with some much needed time away from the hospital.before I went insane. A BIG thanks to some special people at the Nebraska Library Commission for covering the second half of this months insurance premium.

The minister and I said a very special prayer asking God to bless all the special people who have been there to help us us through one of the roughest times in our lives.

As you know being away from work has caused some financial hardships and soon we will have to figure out how to pay our 20% of the hospital bill. So I'm asking that you look at the post below which list several raffle items and information to donate to a special fund to help with the medical expenses. May God bless each of you and keep you safe and healthy.
