BEGINNING WITH THE MOST RECENT…

5/16 Pam Goodroe: I’d appreciate some prayer for myself tomorrow. I have a procedure at U of M hospital, arrival 7:45 a.m. Results from my endoscopy on May 5 revealed at least 5 large polyps growing on my stomach wall. They are the type that if they aren’t already cancer, they will become cancer. So they will be totally removing each polyp and searching the entire digestive system to remove anymore, including colonoscopy to check that entire area, It will be about a 3 hour procedure. We know the more of you standing in Faith with us, the mightier the Victory will be – in Jesus Name. I love each of you. (Submitted 5/15/22)

5/16 Mira update, making small improvements. Appetite is returning, she wants ice cream, getting some strength back, walking some. Her echo didn’t show much improvement but symptoms are fewer and less severe.(Submitted 5/14/22)5/16 Update on Uncle Steve, he and my Aunt Alice are now home here in Michigan.  They drove from Nebraska on Tuesday. Steve is doing better and is healing nicely. They had him doing intensive physical therapy and the doctors were surprised at how fast he was healing. (we do thank you for all the prayers) they were surprised he was able to go home on this Tuesday, normally they would keep him another two weeks. However, he also fractured his foot between the last two toes, that needs to heal so he can walk on his leg better and then his hip was shattered but they have that to where he is able to at least stand. There’s plates in his fingers and wrist, and he will have those removed in several weeks. He said he’s glad to be home. He’ll be on workman’s comp for several months until he’s able to physically lift things. Thank you for continued prayer. We appreciate you!

(Submitted by Laurie 5/9/22)5/9 Mira update; her last surgery gave her a 4 chambered heart, the ventricles have started to function poorly under demands of her new circulation, she is in heart failure. She is on IV meds that will hopefully restore that function. There should be results in a few months. If ok will leave hospital on oral meds, she will always have a mildly decreased function but now she is severe. If no improvement she will need heart transplant. Please pray for Mira, we are in deep water right now but we are going to fight! (Submitted 5/4/22)
