    If you do thanks for your time and any thoughts or prayers you can give would be great. I'm sorry if this is long or confusing but I just don't know where to begin but knew I would feel better sharing here with this great group of friends. My cousin's son Kenny is in the Army and Tues night we got word that he was shot 3 times: 2 in his arm and 1 in the chest and he was sent to hospital in Germany. Wed's morning we got word that my cousin got to talk to Kenny and he told him he was ok but in a lot of pain and they would be doing surgery Thurs morning and they where going to try to save his arm and then send him back here to the states. Please pray for this young man and all the family. This is his second tour in Iraq. He has had a lot of grief in a short time. His grandfather (my Uncle) passed away a year ago Sunday, his wife (married before he went back this time) was in a bad car wreck not long ago & they let him come home to be with her for 2 wks (?) when he got back over there his Sergant and two friends died in front of him after their hummer was attacked and caught fire. Please pray for Kenny, the family, and for all the others over there who make it possible for us to be here.

    Got news last night that he has had 2 surgery on his arm and they are trying to get him stable to send him to TX. Please Lord let it be a good sign that he can move his fingers a little but not his arm. Thanks everyone for your support, thoughts and prayers. He is a wonderful person and his smile just makes you love him and want to hug him.
