My older brother Mickey has experienced a discouraging relapse of metastatic lung cancer in the form of a painful abdominal tumor. Word last summer when we visited them in Oregon was that the partial lung resection was successful and they “got it all.” Prognosis is daunting, but he is entering a clinical trial designed to identify and target the specific tumor cells. Prayers for him and his wife, Norma, please.
Please pray for continued healing for my 101 yr old neighbor. She was hospitalized si day night with internal bleeding caused by an infection. She is anxious to return to her home#
My father, Charles Kipp, is in a nursing facility after a bad fall in January. We can’t visit him and his dementia is getting progressively worse. Prayers for him and our entire family.
2nd Request: my neighbor, “Josie” similar prayers and situation as my dad. She is in a hospital due to a fall in January and isn’t allowed visitors and isn’t getting better. Her husband (Joe) is all alone.
Josie passed away yesterday on May 7th. An update that husband Joe and neighbor is mourning the life of his wife, who he hasn’t seen since December, 2019 due to unfortunate circumstances.
