I just got a phone call from Amy. They are in Pheriche. Bill has pulmonary edema and they are waiting for a helicopter to take him to a hospital in Kathmandu. He is now at the hospital in Pheriche. His oxygen sat level was at 40.

He woke up this morning in Pheriche and told the girls that he was taking himself to the hospital. They knew he was really sick when he said that. Amy and Lori will start walking after Bill is picked up. She said it takes an hour and a half for the helicopter to get there.

I wanted to talk more with Amy, but the phone went dead.

We thank you for your prayers.
