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.
