John Linne went home to be with the Lord on January 12, 2014. He is now in the presence of his Heavenly Father and we rejoice in that blessed assurance.

My dad's Medi-Cal application has been approved.
This financial assistance will begin to fund most of his long-term care costs when his insurance lapses on November 15th.

As most of you know, my dad has been in and out of the hospital with multiple infections. Currently, he is in the hospital with a respiratory infection, but should be stable enough to move back to A Grace tomorrow.

I spent over an hour on the phone this past week with a doctor about my dad's condition. The infections (particularly the pneumonia) are becoming a chronic and more serious condition. His body is beginning to be less responsive to the antibiotics, though they've switched to several different ones throughout these last four months. While the tracheostomy makes him more prone to respiratory infection, it is still necessary for his breathing. I know that we have all hoped for stronger and quicker improvement to his condition.

God is still in control. I will forever trust in Him.

My dad is still infection-free. Praise God! I just submitted additional paperwork that San Mateo County asked for yesterday. They told me that once they have logged the paperwork, I can call to place "emergency processing" on the application, which I will do tomorrow. Keep the prayers coming. Thank you all so much for your support and faithful prayer.

My dad suffered a massive stroke on July 1, 2013. There has been an outpouring of prayer and encouragement from so many people, and I am eternally grateful for that.

As you know, it is a huge financial burden to pay for long-term care. While my prayer is that my dad will fully recover quickly, there is no way to know for sure if, how, and/or when he will be healed. I am only setting up this page because some have insisted on assisting financially. I am not asking for donations, but do appreciate everyone's willingness to help...whether it be financially, in prayer, or sending a kind word.

In the next day or two, my dad will be transferred to a subacute rehabilitation facility where they will focus more on strengthening exercises and speech therapy. After about six to eight weeks, we should have a better idea of the extent of his recovery and how to proceed with his care.

I hope and trust in the promises of our Lord and Savior, that someday, His children will be with Him in Paradise and our weak, fragile bodies will be no more. We will be transformed into His likeness and we will know no more pain.

"For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us." Romans 8:18

"And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose." Romans 8:28

"Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:37-39

"And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:4
