Doc is in the hospital
For those of you who haven’t heard, Doc was admitted to the
hospital (Regional West Medical Center) last night in Scottsbluff NE.
His bout with Chiggers has mutated into something much worse and doctors
are now trying to figure out what is wrong. It was thought that he had
a staph infection in his legs but now doctors think that maybe its
worse than that.
We all know that God answers prayers, please take time to ask God to help Doc (Lynn). He really needs our help!
See below for his latest status.

Well, I am not sure if you remember me by name, but I was the nurse that
admitted you Thursday night. I just wanted to let you know that I am
thinking of you and wishing you a very fast recovery. I have been
thinking about you a lot lately and how inspiring you are to a lot of
people. I have enjoyed looking through your journal and many pictures
along your journey.
Hang in there! Hope that your stay is short but able to get your
infection under control. Keep the faith! I won’t be back to work til
later next week ~ hope that I dont’ find you there, but if I do ~ I look
forward to visiting.
Best of luck to you!

Dear “Handcart Guy”,
That’s how we refer to you, hope that’s O.K. Have been “following”
you via your journal since you surprised us by walking past our house
just east of Altoona, Iowa. You’ve made an inspiring trek across this
great middle of our country and we are hoping and praying for a swift
and complete recovery from your ailments. Please know that you are in
our thoughts and prayers.

Doc, I’ the lady who ran down the Interstate to catch up with you on
Wed. August 5th. to tell you that Sarah Marshall was my great great
great grandmother and that I was from her child Louisa. I am so sorry
to hear that your legs got worse. We will pray for you everyday. I just
got home from going with our youth to Martins Cove for four days. I
not only appreciate the pioneers even more than before, but I appreciate
your trek and pray that you are back on the road soon. I just talked
to my aunt in Idaho a few minutes ago. She told me that she had just
been to a Boyce reunion yesterday. She told them all about you and many
of them are making plans to be with you when you walk into Salt Lake. I
hope to be there also. I have grown to love Sarah Marshall and the
courage she had. I appreciate your courage also. May the Lord bless
your day! Debbie Ore

you will be in my prayers for a full recovery. You have courage, and
the will power to do this treck. How old was Sarah when she made the
journey to Salt Lake? Our bodies were different back then. There is so
much going on in our lives now a days. We aren’t conditoned for what our
families went through then. I do hope you can resume your trip..take it
easy Doc. You have more to teach before you return to our heavenly
