Uncle Verlon and update on Logan


Many of you know that my Uncle Verlon Agan has been struggling physically for some time now and has spent the better part of 3 months in the hospital with severe heart and kidney problems. We, as a family, have been so very concerned and have felt at times that he was not going to make it. I'm so happy to report good news today. Marc caught a taxi and went to see him during his flight layover in Atlanta last night. My cell phone rang and Marc said, "Would you like to talk to your uncle?" I couldn't believe it - Uncle Verlon sounded great! Just a miracle from the condition he was in even a couple weeks ago. He is really hoping to go home from rehab this Saturday. He still has a way to go in his recovery, but I am so thankful for God's touch on him and thank all of you for your prayers.
This is a picture of Uncle Verlon and me at my cousin Sherilyn's wedding last summer.
Logan's been "in the news" alot lately...:) But here's a quick update: After a year of antifungal therapy using oral medication, today is his last day on the medicine. Tomorrow begins a trial period to see how he does off the medicine and if the fungus has been eradicated. He will have a follow up MRI and doctor visit in mid-March to see if the therapy has been effective this past year. I will admit a little uneasiness right now, but I do know that God is in control. He has healed our son and I am trusting Him to continue to do so. Please help us pray that there will not be a resurfacing of the fungus and that in mid-March, Logan can receive a clean bill of health.
