Pray for ray,,cancer doc came in his blood is too thin to put feeding tube in..they gave him a vitamin k injection so that hopefully by we'd. Am he can have the tube put in. They say he will not come home til at least Friday..they are getting him an air mattress for his hospital bed at home, and a pillow that allows comfort for propping him up. He uses the suction machine for his saliva, like it was always a part of him...he is sooo brave...God Bless My Husband...keep praying

All went well with the placement of the feeding tube.
They didn't put him to sleep at all.
He will come home tomorrow if all goes well!

We are hoping and praying that the feeding tube will be a huge assistance to Ray. Glad they finally got that 'installed'.

Our thoughts and prayers to you and your family Rose.

Love,
Judy

Pray for ray, he felt better this morning, but quickly wore himself out..we are still trying to get it perfect with the feeding tube...trial and error.. As long as it keeps him from being so week..he has been on the home remedy tea that his brother Jimmy ordered,,he swears he feels better each dose.. Keep praying

The "tea" here that Kathy is referring to is essaiac. This is all natural herbs boiled into a tea that is to help with the immune system.

The doctor said of course this would be fine for Jr as it is all natural and can't hurt him.

We know that Jr will not be here with us much longer, outside of a miracle from God, but would any of us be?
We are all here by God's love and mercy.
I am just thankful for the extended time God has given my brother to be with his family and especially the time God has given to my mom and Jr to have this time together.

Again I thank all of you for your show of support and to those of you who have sent me private messages, it means a lot!
