He will return to Kindred 2-3 times a week for wound care follow-up. Healing has been a slow and painful process for Doug and wife Mae and they need our prayers for relief of pain and a full speedy recovery.
Nelson Foehner: (08-2-2019rh) Nelson was released from the hospital last week and his cancer has been diagnosed as a sarcoma, which is a cancer of connective tissue.

Nelson is sounding much stronger and is in good spirits. UPDATE: (8-19-20 rh) There has not been a lot of change since our last post. He is still at home and is not in any pain.
