(Gerry and Heidi as they left for Mexico this morning. .taken by Tanya ..which I
stole borrowed off of facebook :)
As I write this. .
my brother Gerry is having an MRI in a clinic in Mexico to see if they can help him with his MS.
He travelled with Heidi my sister in law and their daughter Tanya this morning to seek a treatment that is very hopeful for Multiple Sclerosis patients.
You can keep up to date here on his blog.

My brother has been struggling with MS for a number of years now.
Though the needed to retire early, he has been a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ for most of his adult life.
We do not know what tomorrow will hold for him. .
but we know that he is in God's hands.
We are praying for healing.
We are so thankful for everyone that has helped to make this procedure possible for him.
We are excited for Gerry and Heidi and for their family.
As I write this. .
I wonder if they are really doing the procedure tonight?
If you believe in prayer..
please lift my brother Gerry up.
I'll keep you posted.
Thank you my friends,
all for now . .
Updated 10:30 Sunday morning.
Gerry has seen the neurologist, he is prepped and they are doing the doppler on the veins right now. His procedure will be after that and so we should know more in a few hours.
I'll post here when we know. .
thank you for praying everyone.
Updated 2:45 pm from Tanya
UPDATE: After waiting, and waiting, and waiting....we were finally called into the recovery room to find....a dad who had not had the procedure :( Something was wrong with a generator or something so the doctors told him to rest for a few hours and then they would try again. Back to the waiting game!
Update at 8 pm
Did you see the update on his blog?
OH ..what an answer to prayer.
I talked to Chrissie ..and chatted with Heidi/Tanya. .
and he is doing so well ..and heading back to the hotel .
here is the status update ..copied from Tanya.
Wow ..how amazing. I just can't wait to hear more.
I'm so excited.. .thank you for being such great friends..
your emails and chats have meant the world. .how blessed I am.
He's out!!! Blockages in all three veins and
two in the left jugular. So four blockages in total. He is doing well,
groggy, but fine. No immediate changes to report. He is eating some
supper and then we are allowed to go. Will write more once we are back
at the hotel. THANK YOU for all your prayers!
