A very close family friend just returned from Iraq on Friday due to the fact that he was having medical problems there and could hardly breathe. He was sent to Germany and their Drs. sent him straight home to the US upon examination with no explanation. His Dr. admitted him to the hospital on Saturday…his cancer has returned and his lungs and esophagus are riddled with polyps. He took a turn for the worse last night and as requested by him, his wife placed him on a DNR…it looks like it may only be a few hours before he passes. He’s only 52 years old…and he will be leaving his wife of 30 years just two years shy of their only son dying of Hodgkins Disease. Please keep Vloye (pronounce Vuh-loy), James and their family in your prayers today. I am off to the hospital to be with the family.

    Karen–I’m so very sorry to hear this. There is no way I could possibly understand what that mom/wife is going through to have her only child die and now her husband. Prayers.
