A Call For Prayer

My Dear Friends,

Though I have been quite busy all Summer, working on my home and garden I have no photos to show you.  I will, soon, I promise.  Part of the reason is that the hard drive on my brand new computer crashed.  However, there is a bigger reason. A much bigger reason.

This is where you come in...

My beloved Father-In-Law, Gracies "Papa" is very sick.  He was recently diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor, a glioblastoma multiforme, an aggressive, cruel enemy.  The prognosis is dire.

However, he may be a candidate for  surgery at the University of Chicago, due to the fact that the glioblastoma has not seriously affected his vision, hearing, balance, etc.

There is hope!

He had myriad tests last week and they decided he would have surgery to remove cystic tissue IF his tumor has not grown during the last several days.

My friends, I am asking, begging you to pray for this dear man.

Please pray that his tumor is of suitable size so that the doctors can go ahead with surgery, that his surgery is successful and that his caregivers are competent and compassionate.

The world needs his dry wit, his loyalty, kindness...

His laugh, alone, is a cure for so much of what ails this world.

He is a Vietnam Veteran, a US Marine.  He has known much grief due to his service to our beloved country.

Please pray for him now.

Papa in Jerusalem

Papa and his beautiful wife, whom Gracie calls "Cutie".

I am selfish.  I want him here, with us. God can have him in 20 years or so.  I need him.  Gracie needs him.  My husband needs him. His family needs him.

His name is Michael...and he is loved.  Please keep him in your prayers.
