Hello Everyone,

Stanford had his best night last night since before the emergency 
room crisis.  He was able to sleep straight through for almost 8 
hours and then another two after being up for a bathroom break.  He 
hasn't needed any oxycodone for break through pain for 36 hours now.  
The 40 mg twice a day of oxycontin is providing the needed level of 
pain management.  His pulse was measured at 114 last night at 11:45

body tells him to.  We're encouraged by his slow and steady 

On a "house keeping" note, I resized all the thumbnails on the 
http://StanfordLarsen.org website to 500 x 500 so that you can see

MB), which is ridiculous and takes a long time to download because I 
don't have much upload bandwidth.  The larger thumbnails are about 
30 KB each so they download faster.

We thank you all for your support, thoughts, prayers, and faith in 
Stanford's behalf.  We know it has made a difference.  We've been 
blessed with a miracle already in that he is recovering from this 
latest crisis.  Please continue so that further miracles will be
