Tom just returned from the hospital after undergoing new pulmonary function tests. The bottom line is that there has only been a slight worsening change since his last test a few months ago. One offsetting factor is his weight loss, which has likely helped his overall lung capacity. He's been doing great with his weight program, which is no easy feat when moving is exhausting for him. He's been keeping up with the treadmill exercise with full oxygen which has no doubt helped with weight loss as well as keeping him as strong as possible. We want him in good shape when it comes time for a transplant! He does have good days and not so good days, but all and all, Tom's able to enjoy retirement and stay fairly active. Meanwhile, he continues to teach, play his trumpet, sing and lead the choir. The choir is getting ready for the Christmas cantata, which will be presented in a couple weeks. All our children and grandchildren will be here for the New Years eve service so Tom and the kids will be singing a quartet piece (Master of the Sea) and the grandchildren are preparing a special of their own. I'm so excited to hear them all sing together again. Can't wait!
Tom wants me to thank you for praying--the Lord has certainly been gracious in hearing our prayers!
According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. Philippians 1:20
