This morning, I was able to lie down in the hospital bed with my love.  I told him that I would do everything I could to make him proud of me and that he must be my angel when he gets to heaven. 
His lung support is on 100%; they cannot go down on it, because he cannot tolerate it.  His kidneys have shut down and he is on dialysis to bypass them.  His blood pressure and body temperature are dropping.  His lungs have fluid in them.  His body is retaining more fluid than can be pulled off him.  The doctors are giving him a day or two to see if there can possibly be any improvement.  Then we will have to turn off all the machines and the Lord will carry him to heaven.  The doctors say that only a miracle would save him now.  His family is here and is spending time with him.  We are in a nightmare.  Our faith is the only way we are going to make it.   
Please continue praying.

We are praying for the entire Kottwitz family as you gather to celebrate the life and faith of Ben. His impact on us as we've followed his messages has been something we will never forget. The truths of this life and the struggle to understand it while keeping faith at the center are lessons learned not only by Ben and his beautiful family, but by any who chose to listen or read what he so willingly shared. May God continue to bless you, comfort you and give you peace.
In His Love,
Bob & Carol Ann Clark
