Eagle and I had a good conversation on the phone this afternoon. They transferred him to a different room (in the middle of last night — ugh!) so it took me a few minutes to get hold of him. He gave me a few graphic descriptions of his red, swollen, and weeping leg which I will spare you, preferring to move on the good news that his vital signs are all stable and good right now, that he is getting up now and then to move about, and that he continues to be grateful for all the support he has received.
The medical folks have told him this will be a three to four week process. I asked him if there were any complications with his work, and he said no. He also shared the good news that there is no concern at this time with medical bills, for which he is thankful.
In the past year, he has asked us to pray for his father who has had some serious health problems, and we talked about that. He is concerned about his mom, who is caught between two health situations at the moment, and also asked us to continue praying about some significant tests his dad will be having in the near future.
His main concern for himself continues to be the healing of his leg.

Let me give you another reminder that if you would like to send cards or notes to Eagle, drop me an email using the “Write Chaplain Mike” link in the upper right of the page, and I will send you my address. I’ll then gather items that come and send them to Eagle for his encouragement.
Be not weary in well doing!
