Kathi's Dad Update

This morning, Kathi's dad again had minimally invasive surgery on his legs to remove the blockage in his arteries. The procedure was only partially successful. They were only able to get 20% of the arteries cleared starting at his foot. Next step will more invasive bypass surgery. The anticipated outcome of all this surgery is to ease the pain in his legs so he can walk more.

I thought I better update everyone on how my sister-in-law is doing. She had a follow up appointment this week and the doctor actually took her trach out, which he said he would "NEVER" do at the follow up appointment! She is so happy and we are rejoicing because she is healing well and fast! Thank you for your prayers!


Kathi's Dad

Kathi's Dad, Stan, is scheduled for his surgery on Tues. at 6:30 am. He feels that if this procedure doesn't work, then he will go back to Dr. Murphy in St. Pete to have him do the more invasive Bypass. They are giving him major blood thinners between now and next Tuesday.

Father God,

You are our healer. Restore the circulation in Stan's legs so he can enjoy walking again. Guide the doctors and the others as they seek to use a less invasive method to unblock the arteries.

In Jesus' Name, Amen

Mom's Cancer Update

Jean called to let us know that Mom has decided to go ahead with surgery to deal with the breast cancer. Apparently the latest tests show the cancer is growing. She will have the same surgery as her sister Donna.

Father in heaven, we know Mom's decision has been a difficult one. Give her peace and comfort knowing that she is in Your hands. As the time for the surgery approaches, continue to keep her in your perfect peace. Thank you Father that Jean and the sisters have been able to provide some support and encouragement. Guide the surgeons and other doctors and nurses so that the surgery is successful and without complications. We pray for a quick and complete recovery after the surgery.

In Jesus' Name, amen
