Ted's Condition

NOTE: This blog entry is being posted by Reb Orrell, cousin to Karol and friend to Ted.

As everyone knows, Ted's condition is not good. He was released from the hospital this week and has been brought home.

Either I, or Karol, will be making entries, updating everyone on his condition.

Hopefully with frequent updates, this method will serve to let everyone know of what is happening with Ted. Also, this method will really help out Karol with the number of phone calls and emails.

I made similiar entries a few months ago with my father on my personal blog and on the Orrell Family Association blog, during the month of October.

At a time like this no one really knows what to say. It's difficult to find the words to convey to Ted, Karol, or Ted's parents and family.

Many people feel completely helpless; not knowing what they can do.

All of that is completely natural, under the circumstances.

If you live nearby and can assist with Ted's care, by all means, let Karol know (Armstrong@tedkarol.com). I believe, Cheryl Heller, is currently with Karol and Ted.

My wife, Nora, has already gotten approval to take a week off work to go stay with Ted and Karol.

I am planning, every few weeks, to go up to Vineland, New Jersey, on Friday nights and come back to Baltimore on Sunday nights.

I'm sure friends and members of their church will assist during the day, as much as they can.

Everything is greatly appreciated.

For those who are further away, there is one thing you can do to help.


Ted & Karol, and Ted's parents need prayer now more than ever.
