2/9/2016 - I can't believe that it is now in the 3rd year since the transplant. I also can't believe I have neglected to update this site for so long.

last year Doug had a good annual check - "still no new lesions since before the transplant" which is amazing. He is doing well and continues to be an avid newspaper reader, internet researcher and works out a few days a week at our local recreation center. He volunteers at church in the meal ministry and assists Lloyd on special painting projects. We continue to be grateful for all of our family and friends and your ongoing support and prayers.

Dear Family and Friends,

A quick update..... Doug had his 2015 checkup in Chicago last month and all is well. We were happy to learn that his MRI showed NO new lesions since before the transplant!!! Praise the Lord!!! His lab work was good also. We will not need to return until next year. THANK YOU ALL for your support and ongoing prayers.
