Hi Everyone!

Again I want to thank each and everyone of you for the ongoing prayers, spells, energy of healing light, candles burning, and rituals preformed for my brother Vince. It is working. I have never in my life seen a will to live as in my brother, Vince. So much has gone on I don't even know where I left off. Recap. April he was in hospital for 20 days with an unknown infection that killed his donor kidney. From there excruciating pain that no one could figure out. In and out of hospital with no relief. Back on dialysis. The dialysis crew sent Vince home with his driver while having a stroke. Vince speed dialed me here in OR. I then got a hold of a police officer friend of ours in Sacramento to get the ambulance to Vince. No one should have to listen to their brother having a stroke on the phone. One of my nephews, Chris got in his car in WA state picked me up in Eugene, OR. and then my mom in Cave Jct OR. and off to CA. again. Vince was in bad shape. A second nephew, Stevie came to help and my daughter flew in from Texas. Last week my other brother Steve came in as well. We truly thought we were there for a funeral. On Saturday the doctors finally preformed surgery on Vince to remove the donor kidney. We are hoping this will relieve the pain. Vince is still in hospital and relearning to speak. Nik, Vince's son is with my daughter in Texas until Vince can come home.
I just spoke to Vince on the phone and even though it is difficult for him to form words he is determined to get home and back to his life. So I plead and beg of you to please keep my brother in your good thoughts, prayers, wishes, spells, rituals, and any other form of goodness for healing and send it to my brother Vince.
Through all of this he finds laughter and joking. Here is Vince. I have photos of him in hospital but I want you to see him like this.
