Please pray for my uncle.  He slipped into a coma this morning due to complications with his diabetes.

Thank you in advance for keeping him in your prayers.

Update:  My uncle is to be transferred to a hospice in the next few days to live whatever time he has left.

Thank you for all your past and future prayers, they do mean a lot.
