As many of you know, Dad has been in and out of the hospital since October. He has battled many different aliments but as soon as things are looking up, he takes a turn for the worse and back to the hospital he goes. We are very fortunate to have kept Dad at home these last 3 months; our families have been rotating visits to monitor his health, the amazing neighbors around Little Long Lake have gone above and beyond, the Church and family members have prayed for both him and my mom and a host of health care professionals have stopped by to check on his progress. On Wednesday we made the decision to move Dad's healthcare to Grand Rapids to be closer to Fritz and Kim. Dad has now be admitted to Mercy Hospital and is working with an infectious disease doctor. We started this site to help communicate more easily with all of you. Thank you for caring about Dad, Mom and all of us during this difficult time. We will post updates here and let you know when he is available to take phone calls, texts or visits.
