a little restaurant where we have enjoyed meals for a number
of years. Her walker-walking did the job in and out.
She still loves to pray and tell others of God's love. One
of our encouraging verses is Proverbs 18:10: "The name
of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous runneth into it
and is safe."

new surroundings at Prestige Care in Grandview. I've

from Chuck N7AAG, Please keep him in our prayers.
the Lord is faithful and we can trust His leading, the
decision has been made not to try and care for Marilyn here
at home. I have had to recognize my limitations and realize
that doing so would put both of us at risk. So as soon
as a bed is available Marilyn will be transferred to the
Grandview Healthcare facility in near-by Grandview. This was
without doubt the hardest decision I have ever had to make.
But in and through it all God has proven Himself to be the
God of love and mercy and grace. We are grateful to
the ARMS Fellowship for their prayer support over these
months and the path on which our journey has taken us. Keep
us in your prayers.

from Chuck N7AAG on his beloved Marilyn
We had word yesterday that Marilyn has been accepted into
the Hospice program in our Valley. She will spend at
least another week in rehab with an emphasis on helping her
walk better with the walker, plus treating her very swollen
lower legs and feet. The fluid pressure has erupted
with one large blister on one foot. At the end of the week
we will see how the Lord leads, either home care with
hospice or at a nearby nursing facility. She remains in good
spirits. Yesterday the speech therapist gave her a printed
sheet to fill out with questions such as, what are you
thankful for, what is your favorite Thanksgiving Day food,
what recipes do you like, and so on. To every question
Marilyn's answer keyed in on some aspect of God's love and
care for her and family.
God bless her and family in this time. Keep sending prayers
to the Lord.

from Chuck Winters: (Marilyn has had hospitalizations in two
different hospitals treating infections over ten days. Now
in Rehab in Toppenish. I saw her yesterday and she was able
to walk with a walker. Doctors in hopes once the infection
is out of her system she will be back at least close to the
baseline where she was at home - talking, eating, walking,
sleeping well with a fairly normal routine. We've laid that
out before the Great Physician. "Is anything too hard
for the Lord...?"): Please keep Marilyn, Chuck, and
family in your prayers as you visit with the Lord!

from Chuck N7AAG on Marilyn.
Our oldest son and I met with a Nurse Practitioner from our Lower
Valley Hospice on Friday and Marilyn was admitted to the
Hospice Home Care program. I'm not sure what all this
entails but the kidney failure, heart attack a week ago and
Alzheimer's more than met their criteria for care. A
Social worker will meet with us this week. The intent
is to provide quality care and keep my Sweetheart
Her Jesus-loving spirit shines through and her smile is
"...hitherto hath the Lord helped us."

from Chuck N7AAG on Marilyn
After some many weeks of up and down weight gain/loss
Marilyn saw the kidney specialist last week in Yakima. He
has been adjusting her medications and that includes
stopping two of the blood pressure meds and reducing dosage
on two others. That all has had a positive affect on
her fluid retention and GFR number. The latter shows up in
her periodic blood draws and indicates the level of kidney
function. The specialist gave us good news: he told
Marilyn she doesn't have to come back for six months. Now,
Lew, we have been praying over all of this and yet I confess
I was surprised when the Great Physician stepped in and did
His work of staying dialysis. True, He used a Christian
doctor but our God is sovereign and always does that which
We are grateful to Him and He alone surely receives the
honor and glory. She isn't healed by any means, but
the very fact that she was told her condition is
"stable" is good news. It means we continue
watching her weight, watching her meds, monitoring what she
does and doesn't eat, staying clear of sodium - all helping
towards the same goal: stay the dialysis. Thank you
God for this news and keep the prayers going to the Lord for
Marilyn and chuck and if it be the Lords will that there is
improvement for her physical needs along with the strength
for the spiritual needs.
request from Jay
send up prayers for Claude, N9BKA, and family on the sudden
death loss of his granddaughter Naomi. Please Lord relieve
some of the pain and loss for this family as we know you
needed this child home with you and help us to understand
and accept this for we know you have the plans that are
right for us. In Jesus name we ask!
request from Jay
WA0AKV is out of work and looking for employment. Please
join Jay in prayer that God will supply Rich with suitable
employment. Please Lord as Rich and all of us go through
these times of trouble remind us of your love for us and
supply us the needs you see us wanting with all glory to you
as we ask in your name to help Rich and see him through
these hard times.
from Chuck N7AAG on his beloved Marilyn!
saw the kidney specialist yesterday in Yakima. After going
through test results, blood work and an examination the specialist
said he would like to try and reduce the fluid retention she
struggles with by adjusting her prescription meds.
Several had already been stopped or the dosage reduced.
So he stopped another one and she will have a blood
draw in a week and see him again. All of this to try
and stave off dialysis. It means a great deal to
us to know ARMS friends pray for her and for us. Please send
a special request to God. Lord help Marilyn with the pain
she is having and the struggles her and Chuck are going
through, we ask this in the name of our beloved savior your
son Jesus who died for all of us sinners.
join together with Nancy and I in prayer for David Parman:
First of all, that he will get born again, and then be
healed, in Jesus name. He
has too many serious health issues to even mention, but as
of right now he is undergoing the first of 35 radiation
treatments. Please Lord send your Holy Spirit to earth for
David to be healed in both these illness issues and remove
the pain of the physical illness and the struggles of the
spiritual loss he is going through. Amen
request from the sister of Don N9DON
was hurt on the job at an Iron castings foundry in a horrible accident with one of the "hot boxes" several years ago. He is mostly confined to a mobile wheelchair though there are a few rare moments when the pain is not as severe and he is able to walk without use of the chair. He has faithfully taken care of his family.
He meets the needs of other HAM operators and helps them out with getting equipment and anything that they need. Donald takes care of others and places them before himself. A true sacrifice. Now, it is time for others to help him and thus my plea for help.
Please everyone carry some words of love and help to our
Lord and Savior for the help of Don and his family in this
time of trouble and need. May God truly bless and still his
pain some so he will be able to walk in your will with ease.
Update from Terry K9DBV
is in her third week in the nursing home for rehab. She is
making slow, but positive physical progress. Mentally she
has made tremendous improvement. She has accepted her need
to be there and has a positive outlook on being able to
return home in the future. Her improved disposition has been
a blessing to staff and visitors alike. She is in a
Catholic nursing home. I asked her today in they offered
Protestant services and she said no way. I told her I'd
threaten the head nun with 95 thesis on her front door and
that got a good laugh from her. Thank all for their prayers.
Keep the prayers going for him and her and family.
Update from Jay
Price's knee surgery went exceptionally well on Friday, the
23rd, with his already being able to walk. The
surgeon was very well pleased with how it all turned out.
Thanks to all Jay. This is great news and Praise the Lord.

prayers during this troubling time in their lives. Marilyn was
hospitalized again this past Wednesday and is in ICU. The
initial diagnosis was dehydration and fluid retention, but
they have also discovered heart damage. She is being closely
monitored and the doctor has recommended that the family
look into assisted care with a facility that has dementia
care. The dementia continues to rob her of self and the
memories of family. Please God ease their pain and send them
the Holy Spirit to lead them in your will for Marilyn and
send up prayers for the youth and their parents here in my

personal worldview than a Jesus Christian worldview. We pray

would have them be, In Jesus name we ask this Amen.
