Little Laynie's paternal grandfather is in serious condition tonight and on his way to Oschner's Hospital in New Orleans (5 hours away). He has a rare lung disorder called Alpha 1. The drugs he has to take for the Alpha 1 has destroyed his liver and it causes ammonia to build in his body. He becomes disoriented and today it was so bad he could not walk or talk. He is 58 years old. While they were waiting for medical transport to New Orleans, his wife's brother died from a stroke. This family is having more than their share of sadness right now. Please remember the Whitlock family in your prayers.
