Re: [MOL] Update and Prayer request/reply



Thank you:)  IT does help.  Partial sucess!  My dad said tonight that he
would NEVER go back to the hospital here again.  ...but mom also said that
he won't go to  Moffit, the insurance doesn't cover Moffit.  I just said
that I will look into all his options and left it at that.  At least he is
not wanting to stay local, although he is still staying with his current dr.
(which I am not sure of either...?)  Our prayers and thoughts are with you
and your Dad (family!!)  God Bless!!!
