God is good all the time, all the time God is good!

Hello dear friends:
Thank you for your continued prayers for my mother-in-law, Carolyn. Surgery to remove the cancerous portion of her colon was a success today. We just returned from the hospital and she is resting well. Her stay will be approx. 4-5 days. Please continue to pray for her recovery.

In other news, my good friend Michele's 8 yr. old son Brenton was just diagnosed with cancer yesterday. The cancer is in his kidney, lung, stomach and lymph nodes. He will immediately begin chemotherapy. The Dr's. feel like he will respond well to the treatments, however they are concerned about how aggressively this cancer is spreading. If you would please keep Brenton and her family in your prayers, as she has other small children too. A website has been established to keep everyone updated with the latest info. We are praying for complete healing for Brenton's body. If you would like to leave a word of encouragement or a healing scripture please click on his site: www.caringbridge.com/visit/brentonroberts

Praise report for my other friend Michelle in Houston. She's been officially placed on the translant list to receive her new kidneys and pancreas. This will be her 3rd organ transplant. Her previous organs failed. She has been told she will most likely receive her organs within the next 6 months. Praise the Lord for his sustainance for Michelle and her family. She's been through more than any human being I know.

Please continue to pray for my other friend Allie who is still hospitalized at Baylor recovering from bariatric surgery complications.

That's about it for one day. Oh, almost forgot. Please pray for me to get Luke into his ENT tomorrow. He's being crying that his ear is hurting. I have a feeling we'll be getting tubes again, as his first set have already fallen out.

Oh, and praise that daddy made it safely to Arizona on business and that GranDee made it safely to Kentucky to visit Brooke, Emery and Michael.

Heather,
I was just sent an email regarding Brenton this morning. A lady at our church is sisters with your Children's director at Four corners. He is in our prayers.

I was glad to hear Carolyn's surgery went well. What is the next step for her? Chemo? Radiation? We will pray diligently. How are Jason and Jeff doing with this?
