The latest update that I got this AM from his brother is that his blood preasure is stable now with out medication and his white blood cell count is slowly climbing. His Kidneys and liver are the most concern and they have specialist coming in to look at him today. He is putting up one hell of a fight and we would expect nothing less from him.

Some more good news today,

The infectious disease folks have diagnosed Marks infection. It's a
Pseudomonas bacteria. He probably caught it from his hot tub. Mona fought
the disease like a normal person would, but Marks compromised immune system
allowed it to enter his blood stream which caused septic shock (shutting
down his kidneys).

The good new is is that they now know how to treat him. He's producing
urine on his own. They are hoping his kidneys will slowly recover without
the need for dialysis.
