Just a quick update tonight.

Marlin was heavily sedated again today.
His pneumonia continues to be a major issue.
His blood pressure is unstable and goes from too low to too high.
Dad says that he was very still all day and did not have any wakeful times but that was due to the level of sedation.

The good news is that Marlin is stronger than most people realize.
In the past year and a half or so, he has fought and BEAT cancer, dealt with the death of our mother and lost everything he owned to a fire.

He has some mountains to climb.
Another fire. 
Serious burns.
And again, the loss of everything he owns.

I am re-listing our pray requests and I want to thank those of you who have asked churches and friends all over the U.S. to pray for my brother.
It means the world to us.

Please join us in thanking God for:
the sincere and generous desire of Marlin's Atlanta friends, employer and co-workers to help in any way they can. Several have provided food for us to keep in our rooms and helped in other ways. 
the love his friends have for Marlin
the amazing support from friends Marlin and I had as far back as middle school and high school. WOW! That's all I can say about you guys...

Please join us in asking for:
complete healing of the serious burns and skin grafts on Marlin's legs
wisdom and revelation for the doctors
healing from the pneumonia
continued travel safety and 'walking safety'
peace and serenity for Marlin
pain relief
removal from the ventilator as soon as possible
strength and good health for Dad and Genie as they are in the midst of their busiest time of year. This situation has them burning candles at both ends and in the middle.

I am headed to bed.

Honestly, I am running on fumes myself.

Just sayin'.....................
