    Parker has been doing pretty good lately aside from a virus that caused some concern but she is better now. If you are interested we are participating in a fundraiser for Hydrocephalus research... feel free to donate if you feel like doing so. Thanks!

    I know this is the Say a Prayer for Parker thread, but I need to ask everyone for prayer favor.

    My golf buddy Kevin, 58, and an ex LEO, passed away from covid early Tuesday morning at 2:00 AM!

    We stayed in touch via text messages from when he first told me he was going for a covid test because he had a 105 degree fever and was bringing up green phlegm. He was admitted to the hospital and was in for almost 30 days. He developed blood clots in his legs and lungs - his pulmonary doc attributed it to covid and his liver had an infection. He was on blood thinners and steroids and was using a nebulizer; thank God he was not intubated but on O2 all the time as he had a very difficult time breathing. He said he didn't get much sleep because of the breathing situation and that scared him a lot. He recently told me that when they retested him it came back positive, possibly residual covid his daughter said (she's an RN in same hospital he was in). He was fighting very hard. His fever finally dropped, the liver infection was clearing up and his O2 levels were high the last few days. He thought he was doing better but then boom, covid threw him another punch.

    He told me he saw a story about a pro golfer who was in a hospital for 30 days with covid, had double pneumonia and survived and went home and played in a pro golf tourney. He told me that if he could do it so could Kevin. He was a very religious man and his spirits were always high. When I asked him if he went on any trips recently he said he went to AC (Atlantic City) a while before he came down with covid - I don't know if it was to a casino or to play golf. I asked about a mask and he told me he didn't wear one and that it wasn't required. He wasn't vaxxed and neither was his wife who tested negative for covid. He never said to me that he regretted not wearing a mask or not getting the vaccine!

    Take what you will from this, but every person has to make their own decisions on how they want to deal with covid.

    Please keep Kevin, his family and me in your prayers! His funeral is on Friday. I thank you for listening to me.

    Prayers said!!! Sad times we are in however God does answer Prayers! It’s my hope that WE will all get right with God, because sadly any day could be our last. My wife dodged the Covid bullet so far but her coworker had it practically shoulder to shoulder with her. Somehow my wife hasn’t contracted it. Coworker is doing well too and we have been praying for her too. Boss man deluxe where I work had to take his daughter that had it to hospital with high fever, low pulse and oxygen. She is better but still a little messed up. Boss didn’t catch it miraculously but had it bad when it first came out. His girlfriend got sick with it but got better really quick??? Lucky for her, him and daughter. I’m taking lots of Vitamin D, Zinc and Quercetin supposedly that helps. I also take a Elderberry gummy and eat a clove of Garlic every morning. If you want to promote social distancing just eat Garlic and nobody will approach you!!!

    The black area is the increase of her brain growth. Red arrow is current MRI the Yellow was the previous MRI. Shunt is also working and reducing the fluid on her brain. The good Lord, your Prayers and the Prayers of many others is making a difference.

    Parker has come a long way in just 9 months and Praying about it another several months… prior. Prayer works at Gods rate of speed. He always has perfect timing! Still thanking Him for His willingness to do the miracles He has done. Thanks again for your Prayers and if you happen to think about it say a prayer when you remember to about her progress in brain growth and fluid reduction. Pray every time you “Park” something Car, Motorcycle, even yourself… LoL

    We did our walk to End Hydrocephalus today even though they canceled the official walk in Wichita Ks because of Covid scare.
