Once again, thank you all for your kind notes and prayers for me and my family. I thought that I would take some time to give you an update on things.

  • Kristie (my wife) is due in three weeks! Zachary Michael will hopefully come into the light without any problems sometime the end of this month. We have all been very sick for the last week or so with the flu (worst I have ever had). Kristie’s sickness has progressed into pneumonia. She is on bed-rest right now, but the anti-biotics seem to be doing their job. Please pray for her and the baby. Hopefully I will have some pictures up soon.
  • My mother is at home in Oklahoma City. My sisters and father have been adjusting to her homecoming. She has not improved as far as health, but I think that everyone is adjusting to the difficulties and life change this has brought about. I have been trying to move to OKC as many of you know, but have now taken my house off the market due to inactivity. This is very hard as I feel I need to be there to bear some of this burden and be with my family. 
  • My father has received grace for his situation that was impending upon all of our lives. He has been able to take care of my mother at nights while my sister takes care of her during the day.  
  • My books are all in boxes in the garage. I know, not that big of a deal, but you have to admit that it is very sad.

Again, thanks for your kindness and prayers. They mean a lot.
