Hello Everyone,

It has been such a pleasure to see all the comments and pictures many of you have posted on Troy's facebook account.

Please continue to post, but could you please send me copies of any pictures you have of Troy and his friends - I will compile them and find a way to make them available.

Please send your pictures to todd_snead@msn.com

Thank you so much for you love and support!

Troy's liver values and ammonia levels have continued to rise daily in the past week and his Myeloma markers have also elevated again. After talking with the medical team here at Northside and given several alternatives for his care, we were forced to make a difficult choice of Comfort Care for him. This means no more blood products or lab values and uncomfortable tests. He is on O2 with minimal IV antibiotics, saline, and a Morphine drip for pain. This treatment will allow him to rest peacefully and comfortably.

He rested well last night and has intermittent moments of "alertness."

The family is requesting no visitors at this time as the Bone Marrow Unit is considered an ICU setting. We very strongly request your continued prayers. We have been blessed with so many good and caring friends.

Troy is one tough man. He has endured this fight to date with so much of his battle being fought up hill and he continues to fight.
