PREVIOUS: Its been a very rough 4 days. Dad is not doing well at all especially last night. He was so weak that he couldn’t walk (and that’s another story). He had pains in his chest stomach legs and back. I ended up calling his Hospice team. Someone is coming out today to evaluate him again. I think he needs to go into a nursing home. I hope the hospice team thinks so too. Please pray for him. His name is Lester Kreh.

Please say a prayer for answers to severe leg and knee pain that so far has not been explained. I've been to orthopaedic surgeon, then PT, and then to ER. All culminated by me passing out yesterday. (I assume it was a reaction to new meds.) The two seem unrelated, but who knows? I hope today to get some answers to at least the passing out. Prayers are appreciated.

Daniel Powers - Daniel has been admitted to the hospital today (3/2) with a 100.8 fever. He's not feeling well at all and there is a worry that this could be an infection –– which his body is not set-up to fight right now due to his cancer treatments.

His cancer remains in remission (since November), but he has had one blow right after the other as he's been in and out of the hospital, has found out that the steroids he's taking have been eating away at the bone in one of his knees (which will require surgery), and now this.

Thank you for your continued prayers and support for Daniel!

Angie –

Update from Marie Fox: Angie went home on Sunday bc they were not able to do her leg surgery right now. Due to weather conditions, there is now a shortage of blood and the hospital still has not been able to restore water from broken pipes. Infections are better. She is scheduled to go back for a surgery consultation on March 3rd. Prayers that her body will continue to heal from infections, no blood clots, and that leg does not get any worse before they can get her back in for surgery. Thank you for your encouraging comments, concern, and prayers

PREVIOUS: Angie is a friend of Marie and Steve Fox who lives in Louisianna. She has been facing the possibility of having a leg amputated for many months, and the time has now come for the surgery. They will treat her with antibiotics (all of which she is allergic to) for her 5 different infections first, then will do plasma treatment to reduce syndrome and Covid antibodies next (to which she is allergic), then will address leg surgery. Prayers needed to get her well enough for the needed surgery.
