The hostages will be included in my prayers.
Epow, I am so sorry to hear of your son. I pray for full recovery for him.
There are other family issues that have been very troubling to us recently, but this situation seems to be working out in a way that is helping resolve those problems. As I said on another thread, God sometimes works out His will for us in mysterious ways that we can't understand, and I believe this present situation which seem so hard to bear for now will work out to the eternal benefit of all concerned. Again, thank you for your concern and for your prayers.
