Yep we were out in Donna's new toy this weekend, We went up to upstate N.Y. to see Donna's family. Her little brother (43) next month, is in a nursing home. He has juvinile diabetes. So far he has lost a leg, on dialysis, colostomy, gone blind, and as of 2 weeks ago weighed 63 pounds. Donna spends some long weekends with him, and I go up when I can.
The heartbreaker is that this guy is a typical farm kid, and loved the outdoors, farming, hunting and fishing.
The whole 8 weeks that Donna was considered contaigeous, she could not go near him because of his lack of immunity.
Short and long of it, it was a good visit, tried out the motor home, and saw a little more heartbreak than we needed.

Welcome home. You made me feel so bad when you wrote about Donna's brother. He still is in our prayers as well as you, Donna and her family. I am sorry your first trip was not a real happy one but at least Donna was able to see her brother. What is her brother's name if you don't mind my asking.

His name is Tim, but somehow even at age 42 he is always Timmy to the family.

Hi Ron/Donna,
I believe God has a special place for people who suffer.

We will say prayers for him and you.
