"Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: you don't give up." ~ Anne Lamont
Daniels condition was somewhat stable this Sunday. Daniel's fortitude and spirit have seen him through the last 19 days. His surgeon, specialists, and ICU staff have employed all their skills, medical science and technology to the process of healing. Daniels family and friends have stood fast in support of his courageous struggle. Cathy, Margarita, Victor, and Daniel's brothers appreciate all the outpouring of love and support.
The heart warming demonstation of kinship and concern has been present since April 29 in so many ways. Friends traveling from great distances, offering solace, bringing food, cards, running errands, helping with child care, praying with the family, asking prayer groups to remember Daniel, visiting and talking to Daniel, and offering assistance.
