Thank You For Prayers

Sunday, May 19, 2013

I asked for prayers for my grandson a couple of weeks ago. The surgery to remove both of his kidneys went well. However, after the surgery he developed pancreatitis. They kept him in the hospital a couple of extra days but he is beginning to feel better. The other good news is my son learned that he will be a match to donate one of his kidneys to Taylor. Taylor needs several weeks to heal from this surgery. Therefore it is looking like the transplant will take place in August. Thank you so much for all prayers. I am sorry I didn't update you sooner.

    I am rejoicing with your family over the successful outcome of the surgeries that Taylor underwent. I will join my prayers, for the successful transplant surgery scheduled for August, with those of others. May the surgeon(s) be given God's wisdom as they perform the surgery & may Taylor's & your son's healings be completed in record time - all to the glory of the Creator!

God bless!
