I am sorry to report that Lawrence is still in ICU. He has had too many procedures to list. Last night the Doctors ordered another MRI. The CT Scan showed an unidentified dark spot on the left side of the brain. His right arm and leg are not functional, but he can wiggle his toes. He is in a conscious state of sleep and has a difficult time opening his eyes. Yesterday the doctors removed 1 quart of fluid from one lung. Due to low white blood count and high heart rate the other lung will be drained at a later date.
Lawrence faces daily battles, but we have great hope that the Lord will show his mercy and goodness. The family appreciates your prayers and donations. I read your comments to him daily. It is so wonderful to have great family and friends.

I would like to thank you all for your prayers and support in these trying times. Yesterday the Doctors did a tracheotomy on Lawrence and took out the breathing tube. He is still paralyzed on his right side. We are hopeful that this is temporary. He now has phneumonia in one of his lungs. Shands is working on housing for me to be closer to the hospital. Your notes are incouraging and your support would be a life saver. God bless you all.
