Hurry Up and Wait

Due to the fact that we have been in the ER with Clark for five plus hours and know many are anxiously waiting for news, we are giving a brief update. . . . the hearing today went well. It was difficult to hear, and stirred up much emotion but we ultimately feel it went in Clark's favor. No decision was made today. The judge understands the urgency of the case and requested that everything be done ASAP and be made a priority. We hope for a decision by early next week. More details on the hearing later. Believe me, much more!

Clark didn't feel well all day today and even stepped out of the hearing early. The hearing took a total of 2 1/2 hours so we made Clark as comfortable as possible in the car until it ended. We then went straight from the hearing to the ER at the U. He had a 107 fever (anything over 100.4 is considered emergency for him), abdominal pain, shortness of breath, hives, and nausea. He was given Tylenol which broke the fever, saline, pain meds, and two doses of antibodies. He will be admitted again, just over 24 hours from being discharged.
Continue to pray for him and especially for those who have the authority to make the decision on his life. Thank you for your concern and know that we are also praying for each of you.

Thanks for the update, glad the hearing went well. Tell Clark to hold on - we'll get him that bone marrow transplant either way.

You are a great example of what a really strong man truly is.

Praying for you Clark and raising your worries up to God...you are going to be a miracle, I believe it!!

Almighty and Eternal God, You are the everlasting health of those who believe in You. Hear us for Your sick servant, Clark, for whom we implore the aid of Your tender mercy, that being restored to bodily health, he may give thanks to You in Your Church.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Stay Strong Clark!!
