Gene Colan Update: More Good News

Adrienne Colan writes me this evening, "Good news: Gene is being discharged Monday. The infectious disease doctor has decided to send him home with a 'feed line'. He'll be visited daily by a nurse for one month. She'll inject the antibiotics into the feed and it will go more directly to his heart. This bug typically lies dorment and hides in the heart valves so he's taking no chances and I'm thrilled. His care has been outstanding and we're so grateful. God has been so good to us! Thanking you for your support and prayers...Gene's spirits are up as they had been all along. You've all meant so much to us throughout this ordeal. We take not an ounce of it for granted."

Thanks so much for keeping everyone updated on Gene, Cliff! That does sound like reason to be optimistic.

Good to hear from you. Twice.

I hope to see Gene next week. I was supposed to visit this week but then he took ill.
