Bryan is one of the strongest and most independent men I know, and he's showing that now. As of 7 PM on Tuesday, he is, against all odds, clinging to life. Although it pains me more than I can say to see him struggle, I know him. He will stay as long as he possibly can. And we will give him all the love we can.
A friend gave me a wonderful printout of Scriptures which I read to him through my tears.
"But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.
We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed—always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus,
that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.
For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh."
