I am sending a good report on Ed Basye.   He is holding his own.   They moved him from CCU to ICU and if he continues to improve he will be moved to a regular room.   They took the IV's off yesterday and he is breathing  ok.   They have him regulated.   They finally got his blood pressure leveled to normal.   He  has the left side of the heart is dead and no blood flow.    There is only 3/4 of the right side of the heart that is working  with some blood flow.   He is holding his own.   Prayers are being answered to spare his life for a little while longer.   I want to thank each of you for your prayers and concern.
God  Bless and have a Great Thanksgiving.   Our family has somethng to be thankful about.  That is sparing
Eddie's life for a little longer.
