Update as of January 30 from Ron's wife

Dear family and friends, please forward our good news. OUR GOD IS AN AWESOME GOD!!! Ron had 3 hours of dialysis yesterday & 4 hours today. Yes, yesterday we had to face that dreaded "D" word; but today it was not our enemy but our friend. His kidneys are functioning and not dependent on the dialysis. Two litres of fluid were taken off his body today. One dr. said that Ron might come off the oxygen ventilator and have the tube removed from his throat on Mon. The CT scan of his stomach showed him to be clear of stomach problems. Much of the fluid has come off his lungs & his respitory infection is healing. Some of his medications have been removed; he no longer needs as much sedation. Isn't it great when our God does more than we could ask or think? Thank you sooo much for your love and prayers!!! God's blessings on each of you -- Debby

from Ron's wife yesterday afternoon

to be forwarded God is answering our prayers for better kidney function. It is only slight improvement; the hand that I hold each time that I go wasn't as tight. It's another day free of dialysis; it is our continued prayer for better kidney function & that the diuretics will help remove the built up fluid in his body. Also, the infection in his incision from back surgery is healing well. His color is still very good. Dustin & I read to him each time that we see him. He is sedated so that he sleeps very peacefully. Thanks be to God & to each of you for your prayers.
Love, Debby

Ron today

I talked with Ron's son this morning. Ron is not doing so well as his kidney function doesn't appear to be improving, hence the immanent possibility of complications.

Mariah has set up a Caring Bridge site if you'd like to leave a message for Ron ( His son said he will print and read them to Ron if he's unable to do so.

Thank you all for your loving, caring energy... keep it coming!

From Ron's son....

My mom, grandma and I appreciate your attention greatly. And, I will pass on the love the best I can. For all of you in touch with supernatural or extraterrestrial help, forward all you can to my dad right now. He needs all the help, love and peace he can get. Thank you.

Ron today

I just got off the phone with Ron's wife. Without attempting a lot of details, his situation at present is not so good. Some complications have come up since I last posted and he's currently in Intensive Care. They've got him on some very potent medications at present so he's pretty much out of it as far as communicating goes. In spite of all this, the feeling is, he is improving, albeit very slowly. It's going to be an uphill climb, so keep that love and light pouring in.

Thanks to all of you.... John Robertson

Ron update...

Hi Again! I talked briefly with Ron yesterday. His first words were, "I'm alive!"... a good start. Our conversation was very short as his energy and stamina levels are about zip right now. According to his wife, Ron has had more than one back injury/difficulty in his history, leaving his spine in shaky shape at best. Apparently it just gave out one night a month or so ago, leaving him without feeling below the waist. He had surgery (laminectomy) that is supposed to relieve pressure on some of the spinal nerves and is currently at a rehab center recovering and undergoing physical therapy. For the foreseeable future it looks like he'll be confined to a wheel chair. He's very weak right now so even sitting up in bed is difficult, which is to say, direct communication with him is on hold for this moment. His wife said they hope to take him home (Ft. Worth) around the 23rd of this month. I'll continue to post any updated information here.
Mariah, thanks for the Facebook thing.
Love to All... John Robertson

Ron Wortham

Dear Friends,
I just found out yesterday that our brother Ron was taken to the emergency room last month. I don't know any details right now, but apparently it had something to do with his back. As I understand it he's currently in a rehab center. He doesn't have a phone in his room so I haven't been able to talk to him directly but I'll keep trying. As I find out more, I'll post it here.
In the mean time, if we all just send him lots of love... well, you never know what might happen. It is, after all, the stuff miracles are made of.
