Jan 16th – update

Hi, Everyone!

Several of you have asked about our trip to Johns Hopkins this week. We leave Oklahoma City on Wed., the 19th, and return home on Fri., the 20th. During that short time we will see both of Kent’s drs. It is a scheduled check-up, not an emergency. Kent had tests done here last week, so that we will have recent results for the drs. there. One of the results, which indicates inflammation, has gone up from 7 to 39, so we know the disease is active somewhere. Kent, however, is living life well. His steroids are increased now, so he is having his usual sleep pattern problems that accompany that therapy. His weight is also a problem when he is on more steroids, but he has the best attitude & motivation. Instead of being discouraged, he is very matter-of-fact. He looks at the facts and says, “I have this disease and God is in control, so I will live each day the best I can, with joy.” He writes, sees friends, talks to people, walks around our lake, and is happy. I really am blessed as a caregiver. I feel sorry for those whose patients are cranky. Mine is fun to live with – a gift.

Please pray for our safety and ease of travel. Also pray for wisdom for Kent’s drs. Maybe those premier researchers have come up with something new. You never know.

THANK YOU for holding us up – again – as usual. I will write as soon as we get home.

In Him, Davidene

  3. Dear Kent,

    Dear Kent,

    Thank you for your prayers over many years. Count on our prayers for you in the days ahead.

    I was blessed to read your reflections on your Dad’s life and impact. Over thirty years ago I was introduced to your Dad as well as you and your brothers. My respect and admiration has only grown over the years.

    May the Lord bless you and keep you in His sustaining grace.

    Teri and John Nieder
