It's been three years since Doug was diagnosed with IPF and over a year since he has had his lung transplant. We now see the doctor every three months. We still stay in touch with the medical team via phone but we don't do as many trips to Tampa. God has richly blessed us with healing for Doug, great families and friends who support us, and many folks, known and unknown, who have prayed for Doug. The Bible speaks of God's peace that is beyond human understanding, well I may not be able to explain it, but I have experienced it ... when I was by myself in the waiting room while Doug was in surgery, driving home at 2 am after his operation, and numerous other times, and it's all because of the prayers of God's people. Thank you for your financial support, your love and prayers.
