Some of you already know that my husband Steve has been in the hospital since Dec.30. His liver wasn't working properly and has been allowing ammonia to build up in his blood. Well, we found out today that his liver is getting worse and his kidneys are starting to fail. Our doctor told us that if he continues this way, he only has two months to live. It is all coming from his heart and there isn't much that they can do. I have to talk to people from hospice tomorrow to find out if Steve can come home for a while or if he has to go straight to hospice. There was a kidney doctor that came in to see him today to see if he can help at all. But our doctor said that its a long shot.

Please continue to keep us in your prayers. I don't know if Steve will even make it to our first wedding anniversary next month.

All of you will never know just how much it means to me that you are praying for us. It makes me cry every time I think about it.

Steve has been feeling a little better the last two days. His numbers, ammonia in the blood and kidney function are better. His ammonia level was back in the normal range yesterday. We did get hospice set up to start coming to the house when he gets discharged. The doctor said today that he may come home this weekend if they can get his kidney function a little better. He dropped 5 pounds from yesterday to today,which proves that the kidney meds are working. If things keep going this way, he may live longer than 2 months.

Thanks again for all the prayers....it looks like they are working.
