Things have turned, and they are getting a little more difficult than I imagined. I have been re-admitted for complications related to my illness.

He asked for prayers. In early October, he wrote: “Tests, exams, CT scan, pain, morphine, blood tests, blood thinners, ultrasound, vital signs… and more in one day. Only those who have been here before can tell you what images are reproduced in the brain. Everyone else can only imagine our images. “
