It’s been awhile since I’ve updated you on my brother. He went in for an MRI which showed cysts on his pancreas, but showed no cancer! So that was great, and very encouraging. He then went in to the pancreatic specialist where he told him to go back on the liquid diet for a week (he’s never truly gotten off of the liquid diet! He’s still waiting to eat a “real” meal for two months now), that week ends tonight. Tomorrow he will go in to the hospital so this specialist can perform a scope, where they will examine his insides further and see what’s going on. Since he will already be under anesthesia, they will put a feeding tube in as well. He will be able to go home tomorrow.
He will have the feeding tube for a month, which will allow the “food” to completely bypass the pancreas. This will allow his pancreas to rest fully, and hopefully recover. The specialist is hoping to have him fully recovered by the time Matt & Laura’s baby is born, which is late October. We are joining him in that hope!
Anyway, Matt is upbeat and optimistic, he’s refusing to be depressed or worried. He’s excited for the feeding tube, he will finally have nourishment!!
Our GodParents are in town for a visit, perfect timing! They were able to go and anoint him with oil and pray over him tonight. What a blessing!
Matt also told me today that their new baby, a girl, will be named (middle name) after me! Her full name will be Hailey Sarah. Ahh! What an honor! I’m thrilled and can’t wait to meet her. October can’t come fast enough!
On another note, my husband’s uncle Tim was in a horrible motorcycle accident last night and is suffering severe injuries, in critical condition. He’s got multiple broken bones, swelling on the brain, and internal bleeding. Please lift him up in prayer.
One of my besties has two family members in the hospital right now, please keep them and their family in prayer as well.
My daughter’s elementary school music teacher’s son died over the weekend in a river accident, please lift that family and all involved in prayer. Her son had just been married a few weeks ago.
Praise Report: The sun came up today! We have another day of air to breathe! God is good!
Thanks for lifting everyone up in prayer, I pray for you often as well! If you have a specific prayer need, please feel free to leave it in a comment below, or email me at email@example.com
You are blessed!
