Erica says: "I just talked to mom, and they got their electricity back this morning, which is quite a relief. They had a couple of rough nights--mom slept outside last night and dad has been sick from treatment and the heat. One of the people staying with them is leaving today to stay with one of her kids; the couple staying with them may be there for a while, cause they don't have a place to go home to. But they are staying strong. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers--they do work!"
