****WCGreen Update --Saturday May 31, 2014**** [View all]

This is from his sister Amy to me, just now.

His wife had called me this morning to tell me that the news was bad. Chris has had many infections over the years, and has been on many antibiotics as a result. Well, now, those drugs are no longer working. The infection he currently has is resistant to all the antibiotics. It will probably be the end of him.

The family was getting ready to meet with the palliative care team to decide on what to do. They said they would call me later, which they did.

But now the news was better. Several of Chris' high school and middle school friends had come by, and there had been much laughter, talking and whatnot in his hospital room. They were all so noisy that the staff told them to keep it down. Through all this, Chris was animated, happy, smiling and looking better than he had in months.

The family asked him what he wanted to do about his situation, and he indicated that he wanted to think about it, and tell them tomorrow.

So the situation is in flux.

I am going to fly out there tomorrow because I want to see him, and say goodbye if that is necessary.

Your good thoughts are much appreciated!
