Today Manuel has remained relatively stable. Dr.
Belcher, the Infection doctor, is going to continue to monitor him an additional day before he will

right lung looked a bit better.
Marcello received a visit from Nancy (his ostomy nurse) this morning. She cleaned him up a bit and changed his dressing and ostomy bag. Dr. Kokoska also stopped by in the
afternoon to look over the his incision. Dr. Kokoska was pleased with how the incision
Pastor Daniel Lepley came by today to visit the twins. Pastor informed us that he had written another letter about the inspiration that he has received from Marcello and Manuel and provided us with a copy of the letter.

We are touched that Marcello and Manuel have impacted so many lives and helped many with their relationship with God. We lift God in praise for the healing and comfort that He has provided to not only Marcello and Manuel but to us as his parents. We pray that Marcello and Manuel continue to improve so that one day they can come home.
