Prayer Request for my Dad...

I have a prayer request for my father that I wanted to make known. He has been feeling poorly for the past month or so and decided to go to the ER on Friday. He was severely dehydrated, which further weakened his already weak body (he has Muscular Dystrophy). They did a CT scan and found an "impressive infection of the ascending colon"....hope I got that description right, but at least you get the idea. They also found a "large mass" in his abdomen. As of right now, they are not thinking it is cancer but they don't know what it is or how serious. They admitted him and wanted to see him get stronger with the help of IV fluids and antibiotics before they did any further testing. He is on a semi-liquid diet and generally just having a rough time of it.

Please agree with us in prayer for his complete healing and full recovery of strength and mobility. Pray that the infection will be eradicated and his entire system would reap no long term effects from the treatment.

Thank you for joining your prayers with ours for my dad's healing! I'll try to keep you posted on his progress...I'm borrowing an old desktop computer from my parents until mine gets back from the shop.

Blessings!
