"Dear praying saints;
Praise the Lord! Duze was released from the hospital yesterday (on good behavior) afternoon. This is much earlier than had been expected by all (answered prayer!). He is doing better and was out to the meetings today (a little loopy from the pain meds). On doctor's orders he removed the packing this afternoon (not a fun thing to do on your own). He will see the doctor tomorrow to insure that he is still making progress with the infection."
