Information I posted here within the past hour was largely incorrect.
It was probably a simple mistake made with good intentions and I sought to bring what I had been told to the attention of good souls who have been praying for John and his family since last Summer.
Anyway, John’s situation does appear to be very grave, according to new information I just received from a mutual friend who has been with John and his family today. If I learn anything further and it comes from this particular source, which is completely reliable, I will update then.
Regardless, thank you one and all for your charity in praying for John and his family. Please continue in earnest.
