    Greg Schmelzer What are you looking at?!

    We just got word yesterday after Dad's follow up visit with the doctor that his kidneys are only functioning at 13% of normal. He is going to be put on dialysis and is to be put on the transplant list for new kidneys.

    Please pray that a match can be found for him and that he will not reject the new kidneys after the transplant.

    Also pray for my Mom to keep her strength up. She is a strong woman, but in the last 4 years, he has had a bout with encephalitis that almost killed him and left him not quite Dad. A heart attack last year followed by quadruple bypass. Ever progressing diabetes. High blood pressure. I don't know how she has held up so well this far. All this prompted them to sell the homestead that they have lived in for over 30 years that Dad built himself and all three of us grew up in.

    Thank you all very much.

    We'll keep Mom up there too.
    Beth's dad has been on dialisis for a couple years now.
    So we know how tough it can be on a person.
    Keep thinking positive thought's and we'l keep our fingers crossed for a donor for your Dad.

    I don't know how much it will help, but, we will be praying from a little higher altitude than you.
