Update on My Brother

Hi,

First of all, we have been overwhelmed by the number of people who have offered to pray and sent good wishes for my brother.  He loved the "Believe in Miracles" card. 

Many of you have asked about my brother, Lance and his liver battle.  I called him yesterday.  All I can say is God bless the insurance companies because somebody needs to.  His work switched insurance companies on Oct. 1.  His appointment at the University of Pittsburgh Hospital  to determine if he needed a liver transplant was SUPPOSED to be Oct. 6.  UP called him on Friday to do the preliminary paperwork over the phone.  When they got to the insurance part, they told him the new carrier wasn't accepted by the hospital.  Now he's back to square 1 trying to find a liver specialist.  To make matters worse, the doctor and hospital bills are now rolling in.  All this because a doctor did not bother to read the blood tests he ordered after prescribing a toxic combination of drugs for back pain.

Please continue to pray for him and for the wisdom of his doctors.    He's trying to keep his spirits up and doing a great job of it. 

With everything going on in the world right now, I know your prayer lists are long so I humbly thank you in advance for your time.

Blessings,
Charlene
