Prayer Update!

Here's the latest -- Billy has extreme case of pneumonia, which is being treated on the back-burner currently.

His first and most important issue is that he does indeed have TB. Apparently a very deep, long-term case of it untreated or recognized. The doctors said that they are hopeful it has been "incapsulated' until just recently. They don't know yet.

Billy has had several years of drug problems, and recently went into a clinic to get himself clean. This clinic apparently treats meth addiction, oxycotin, etc. Billy has been being treated with a liquid methodone and that is what brought him down into what amounted to a comatose state.

The pneumonia is serious, but a secondary issue at this stage with the TB. His lungs look like popcorn they say.

Right now they are treating him with some sort of medicine used for meth OD. He has little to no muscle tone at all, his liver is basically gone, but his blood sugars have come down.

That's really all we know at this time. His immediate family and known contacts are to be tested for TB in the coming days, and from there, I'm not sure what else will go on.

We haven't seen Billy since Jacob was burned. He was driving truck at the time and was close to Memphis so he came to the hospital to see Jacob. I'm not concerned really about the TB, but I will be in prayer as to whether we might be tested just in case.

Do keep everyone in continued prayer if you would.
