Good news about two Friends, Gerald Jimmy Jr. and Christopher Dye:

About Gerald, Danielle Evans writtes: Without notice, after dialyzing whisked back to skilled nursing!  The IV antibiotics have done great work - we are clear minded, upbeat, active, informative and feeling much better.  Wondrous.
About Christopher, Will King writes: 
I just spoke with Paula Keeth from the Dallas Friends Meeting about our Friend Christopher Dye. Paula received news today that Friend Christopher has improved, and "is off the critical list." Not much more information than that.

Please continue to hold these two Friends in the Light.
