Donnalynn's Husband - Please Pray
« on: August 31, 2010, 06:30:25 am »
Donnalynn's husband, Jim, had a blood clot in his leg that broke free and several clots moved to his lung.  His condition is critical and she said they need a miracle, so please everyone start praying hard for them.

Oh my! I hadn't talked to her since his weekend - she was afraid that would happen. She didn't want me to post until they found out more on Monday. Guess they found a hospital bed for him now...he wasn't hospitalized at first b/c they had no beds! :(

Definitely praying for them all!

Oh my that's just aweful, saying a prayer right now for healing.  Calling my Mom too, she's got a whole prayer tree she can "activate".  I really hope everything turns out well.
Hugs,

Donnalynn ~

I'm so dismayed to just learn of this latest problem with Jim 's lungs (blood clot).  Of course, you'll both be in my prayers.  Jim, for healing and you, for strength.  God bless you both.

Jim

As painful as it is to read, we appreciate you conveying this information.  I know that prayer changes things.  Now, those prayers will be offered.    Merci beaucoup.

4.5 cm AN diagnosed 5/06.  Retrosigmoid surgery 6/06.  Follow-up FSR completed 10/06.  Tumor shrinkage & necrosis noted on last MRI.  Life is good. 

Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It's the way it is.  The way we cope with it is what makes the difference.
