Update on my brother

Pin It This is from a "guest blogger", my mom. :) (giggle ... I always wanted to have a guest blogger!)

We have just returned from an absolutely wonderful visit with Troy. While we know that he has some health issues that may not improve, he was much better than our last visit. We spent some great quality time together and during this visit he was able to express his emotions and carry on a real conversation with us. While there, we called both of his sisters and they enjoyed the phone visit. I believe thei was possibly only the second time this year they have had such a visit.

In talking with Troy we discussed his uncanny ways of always beating the odds. He stated that it was "on a wing and a prayer" ... oh, how right he was -- always on the wings of angels and on the prayers of so many! We really just wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you so much for your prayers and concerns. Every time any one of you asks about Troy, it definitely lifts our spirits. Your prayers are working miracles. We never would have dreamed that Troy could have improved so much. We don't know what the future holds for him, but do know that he has some major health issues and does now and probably always will need lots of medical intervention and lots and lots of prayers. However, none of us are promised tomorrow but we are promised a future, a healthy new beginning in heaven.

Thank you all for showing us a little heaven here on earth. If there is every anything we can ever do for you, please do not hesitate to call and ask.


I don't think I blogged about my phone visit with him. We talked for a while, and it was just like talking to my same-ole brother, if that makes sense. I got tickled that he no longer has pink hair. He now has a mohawk. Too funny!
