Prayer Request

prayingGrandma and Grandpa Mac (Will's parents) could use some extra prayers right now. They are dealing with some health issues. Grandpa had a heart attack two weeks ago. After a week long stay in the hospital, he has been home recovering for the last few days. Last night, things got even more interesting. Grandma had been having stomach pains throughout afternoon. As the evening progressed, they became more intense, until the need to head to the ER became apparent. She was diagnosed with severe appendicitis, and promptly had her appendix removed. She is recovering nicely, and the doctors anticipate her discharge from the hospital sometime tomorrow. However, therein lies the rub. We have two people, alone in a house, recovering at the same time. They have a home health nurse coming twice a week, but there are still many needs to be met. We are grateful that there are a number of family members close by. I figure prayers for quick healing and restoration couldn't hurt either.

Update: We just found out Grandma Mac was discharged from the hospital today (10/7). She is tired, but recovering well. Keep those prayers coming. Thanks!!
