After some phone calls and e mails I have learned that Bill is resting, on oxygen, at a clinic in Kathmandu. I talked with him this morning after Jeff Giger, my son in law, researched on the internet and was able to find him. Thank you Jeff! Bill sounded good, much better than when I talked with him in Tengboche.

He immediately began feeling better when he was taken to a lower altitude. They want him to stay another 24 hours on oxygen.

The girls have made it down to Namche Bazaar and are fine. (Thanks to Bud Allen for finding this out for me.)

I will let them fill you in on details. I want to thank everyone for your prayers and concern.

God is good!
