I received this from LaDonna via Linda Butts:
A little update on Joe………. he is hurting, down and out, and on the verge of giving up. Although he would never admit to that– I know different. We are on day 148 of our cancer journey and day +5 of transplant. The doc told us today we are in our toughest days and to hang in there and shower daily and walk daily, but he won’t. Please continue to pray for him and for God to lift him up out of the bed and give courage to jump this hurdle!
