Journal entry by Elizabeth Tienhaara

We are encouraged to report that Richard’s dietary changes and programs under the care of Wisconsin and Rhode Island clinics have afforded him somewhat low stable blood levels…not needing blood transfusions for 5 weeks now! He also has increased energy levels. We are grateful for these improvements and hope that the progress he’s seen so far will continue and he will be able to avoid the bone marrow/stem cell transplant.

He is also so grateful for everyone’s prayers and well-wishes, and the generosity of people in helping with yard and lawn care work, fence repairs, grocery shopping, dog-walking, and donations to GoFundMe to help mitigate ongoing medical expenses. All of this is greatly appreciated….may God bless you all and help us all find joy in every day!
