Prayers for my uncle James
« on: March 21, 2004, 01:35:21 AM »
I ask your prayers for my uncle James.  He is currently in the critical care unit at a local hospital after his surgeon found an abnormally large abdominal aneurysm.  He has already had two heart attacks in the past, and also suffers from emphysema and multiple sclerosis.  The prognosis is uncertain at this point.  Please pray for healing, if it is God's will.

Thank you.

Oh dear. I'm so sorry, David.  We'll remember him, of course.

Prayers...

Mor no longer posts on OCNet.  He follows threads, posts his responses daily, occasionally starts threads, and responds to private messages when and as he wants.  But he really isn't around anymore.

Thank you everyone.  The surgery went much better than anyone expected.  He is still in Cardiovascular CCU for a few days, but a full recovery is expected.  Thank you again.  Glory to God in all things!

That's good news.

Continued prayers for his full recovery.
