Just an update on my brother, Danny. He did not have the heart catheterization due to too much water on his heart. He needs to be admitted to the hospital but because he is a veteran, they will not do it. Why? Because the Veterans Hospital is socialized medicine--the kind the Democrats want to give all of us--and it doesn't matter how sick you are, they still make you wait. There is standing room only for heart catheterizations, if you can believe that. There is no room in the VA hospital for all the veterans waiting for help.

So here is my brother, deathly ill, and the VA Hospital sends him home and tells him to rest. We are beside ourselves with frustration and worry--the only comfort is in knowing God has things under control. I know He loves Danny even more than we do.

"My times are in your hands" (Psalms 31:15).

How sad it is that the United States of America sends their people to fight and die--and when they live--condemns them to substandard medical care for the rest of their lives.

Please keep us in your prayers.
