Update 12-3-20 from Kindra Barker's Facebook Post
"I know everyone has been anxiously awaiting an update on Shelly.
I apologize that it has been so long, but I never post anything on this page without Shelly or Bonds permission.
Shelly has not been able to navigate her phone or computer for months now and she has trouble with her short term memory. Heart and Home Hospice has been coming in and helping Bond on a regular basis. Shelly is not in pain.
Bond wants everyone to know that Shelly is still fighting hard and doing ok. She is a little weaker and she is sleeping more but she still loves to give the boys crap!
Thank you for all of the continued love and prayers for Shelly and family"
Gordon is still in the hospital. They have drained over 2000 ml (1 leter), of infectious fluid from the broken cyst. Still draining but much slower now. More tests today. He will be here at least another 3-4 days till they identify the infection and make sure they treat it and get rid of it. He is in the bend hospital, never went to Portland.
Saw Dr. today and they confirmed that more than one cyst broke and draining. Fluids sent to labs to see what type of infections so they can treat. Again, thanks for all the prayers
Gordon came home yesterday. Still has tube draining that I (Carol) empty several times a day and have to measure and log. In great pain. Have to take him to bend infusion (cancer center) every morning for an IV infusion of antibiotics through Dec 23rd. Depending on how well the infection is, he may go into the new year for the infusions.
Please continue to pray for these ongoing requests
