My father, who is in ICU and is critical, had a very rough night, but has shown a bit of improvement today. Doctors think he has pneumonia and an exacerbating side issue related to a heart medication that badly affects his lungs. He is able to talk, but it puts such a strain on him that doctors are essentially forbidding it.

As you might suspect, the next 24 hours are important.

Again, I am grateful for your love and support.

    Sure, Ralph. You got it. I just flew in today from Minnesota. I literally got back from China and went to Minnesota.

    I'll pray and touch base with your dad.

    Loves ya,

    I'm so sorry. He will surely be in my prayers, Ralph.
