Prayer Request from Sue Harrington – As you know Jimmy has been having breathing difficulties for awhile now coming from a build-up of fluid in his lungs. They drained the lung 4 times in less than a month and tested the fluid for a cause each time. None was found. We spent 6 days at Northside Hospital where they did exploratory surgery and a procedure to hopefully correct the problem. Unfortunately, the tissue samples taken during the surgery revealed cancer. It is a B-cell lymphoma and that is all we know right now. We will meet with an oncologist as soon as possible to learn more about his particular cancer and treatments. We appreciate all of the prayers and cards from our class and ask that you continue to lift us up in your prayers. We know we are in God’s hands as we move forward. Thank you, Sue
Prayer Request from Brenda Turpin – Harry Galloway had surgery on an abdominal aortic aneurysm in October. The wound did not heal. They admitted him to Piedmont on Friday, December 20 where he had surgery on the wound area. Hopefully he will be able to go home Monday. He has a wound vac attached. Harry Galloway: 2252 Lawson Way, Chamblee, Georgia 30341.
Prayer Request from Brenda Turpin – Darlene Barnwell is asking for prayers for her dad, Pat Vinson who fell at home last night and has been admitted to the hospital with a broken femur up to his hip bone. Of course, we are all rallied around mom and dad as this will be a long time to recover. They have scheduled a cat scan to review the break to get a better idea on how to fix it. It’s not a clean break, more splintered – so the doctor is guessing about 6 weeks of PT. Surgery should be tomorrow. He’s at the old Joan Glancy hospital which is now a Gwinnett Medical Facility: address is: 3620 Howell Ferry Rd, Duluth, GA 30096. However, after the CT scan (which is supposed to happen today) they may move him to the larger hospital in Lawrenceville for surgery. Pat Vinson: 141 Royal Dornoch Drive Duluth, GA 30097
