We have news that my older brother Paul went into the hospital in Texas Monday night with pneumonia. He has been having a very hard time breathing, and yesterday they put in a breathing tube. The latest news we have is that the tube didn’t help and they have had to put him on a respirator.

Paul has been a smoker since his teens; he’s 62 now. He has emphysema and COPD, and has been using a personal oxygen tank for a few years now, I believe.

Paul & Pat and their whole family need our prayers.
