Update

First of all, thanks to all of you who have been praying for my nephew. His condition is pretty much unchanged, which on the one hand isn't good -- he's in critical condition and could take a further nose-dive at any time -- but at least he's not beyond hope. Funny thing, I'd just emailed my daughter some links to the Murderball trailer and a review (below), and was thinking in terms of getting Benj into the woods for opening day of deer season. I clicked "Send" and when I got back to my inbox, there was the email that Benj was gone critical. How quickly the question goes from "Can we get Benj up and about for hunting?" to "Will Benj still be alive when I get home from work?"





All this said, I also have to announce that I'll be away in Mongolia for four days. I talked to my sister about cancelling, but she's very up about me going. "Go!" she said. "Have great adventures and take lots of pictures to show Benj when you get back." I think my going is a leap of faith that Benj will still be with us when I get back.

Continued prayers very much appreciated. My friend Nichole will be posting anniversaries while I'm gone. Fight nice!

Thankyou for keeping us posted. I can't imagine what it is like when this happens to your nephew. I will hope that he is out of the woods soon, and will keep praying.
