As many of you know, Claire fell and broke his left hip almost a year ago and endured a lengthy recovery over the past year. On November 5, 2016, Claire fell again, this time breaking his right hip requiring surgery that same day. He had been recouporating at a Rehab Facility until December 1, when he was taken to the hospital for a follow up appointment with his surgeon. A new X-ray revealed that the hip is not healing properly and Claire was admitted to the hospital pending a hip joint replacement surgery. Over the last 4 weeks he has lost considerable weight and additional health complications have surfaced making surgery a considerable risk until his health stabilizes . We appreciate your prayer support and words of hope and encouragement during this difficult time.
