Renee Deck Terrell did well in surgery and is back at home.

Mrs. Nita Russell has had to have surgery after her fall at North Oaks.  She will be moving to rehab tomorrow.  Her daughter, Cathy Russell, is still in North Oaks.  You may know Nita as the mother of Faibra Cade or the step-mother of J.C. Miller,

Keith Sumeral was involved in an accident on Highway 16, Amite Tuesday afternoon.  He is okay.  In fact, everyone who was involved will be okay.  Let’s thank God for watching over the occupants of both vehicles.

Bobby Lawson – Please continue to pray for him and his family.

Darren Fontz (son of Diane Strickland) has begun chemo.  Please pray for him and for his family.

Pray for John Dyer (not the local one, but Jana Creel’s brother-in-law) as they work to determine this problem.  So far, they have eliminated the possibility of Parkinson’s.

Martha Pevey Drago will be having surgery.  She wrote this last night.

Tomorrow is surgery day! One step closer to getting this over with!!! Surgery is scheduled for 8:30am. Please pray that all goes well and please pray for my doctors and all the medical staff who will be working on me!

Wednesday Afternoon

Dan Turner (Written by his mother)

Good morning! I have an update on Dan, and would like for you to include him in your prayers. You may also post this info on The Prayer Link, requesting from our family that everyone remember him in prayer. He is having an issue with spasticity in his left arm and leg. This means that the muscles are contracting to a most uncomfortable level, and invariably impedes the usage of both that arm and leg. God is already putting the pieces of this puzzle together as we speak in this way: A “new” doctor, whose specialty is Spasticity is moving his practice to MMRC as we speak! Dan is right now waiting on a phone call that will make available to him, a surgically implanted pump to deliver medication to the areas of spasticity. Up to this time, Botox injections have been administered at approximately every six weeks with varying results. Oral Meds for the condition are not as effective and
cause some unpleasant side affects. On top of that things are sometimes better, sometimes worse. This pump will deliver just the right amount of medication to just the right areas for a period of six months before needing attention for a refill. The thing is, that there will be a trial day to test this medication to see what level of affect, if any, the medication delivered through the spine, has on Dan’s muscle spasticity. He will go into the hospital for an overnight stay, the med injected, and then careful monitoring and testing throughout the day to be very exact at all junctures to see what the results are for relief. If the medication shows to positively affect the muscles, then a surgery date will be set for the implant. Dan is excited about this possibility of being able to have some more of his normal life back! Please join us in praying for this, yet, another opportunity for
Dan’s further healing. God is still moving doctors to Jackson, whom have had no plans to come to UMMC until now (now does that give us hope?) We are SEEING GOD MOVE, literally! …nurses, medications, medical equipment and HOPE for Dan’s cause! I have already told Dan that a mighty army of prayer warriors are speaking his name “Dan Turner”, to God many times a day in their personal prayer times, and also in group prayer time! Dan is SO thankful and asks that all of you please continue! Thank you!

For if you forgive men when they sin against you,

your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

 But if you do not forgive men their sins,

your Father will not forgive your sins

“With men this is impossible,

Jadon’s Journey (Written by his mom)
Ortho doesn’t think it’s a fracture. She thinks that the tendon is tight and because Jadon is so active it is rubbing against the bone by his heel which is the area that hurts him to touch. The rubbing is causing inflammation which is causing him to not be able to walk. They put him in a cast for 2 reasons. 1 to let his foot rest so it can heal. 2 to help stretch the tendon. They casted his foot at a 90 degree angle to stretch it really well. He will wear the cast for 2 weeks and then we will go back to see what needs to be done next. He is so happy he can walk on it. I just pray it doesn’t set him back too much. He was doing so well!! The ortho seems to think we will have to do adjustments every time he has a growth spurt.

One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek:

that I may dwell in the house of the LORD

all the days of my life,

to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD

and to seek him in his temple.

Koltyn Gafford (Written by his mother)

Koltyn has had a very eventful weekend. Although all good things must come to an end and sadly ours is ending with a trip to the ER. We have been noticing what seems like “Absence Seizures aka Petit Mal Seizures” sudden blank stares for short periods of time like he has just been startled. They are getting more frequent and the Dr. told us to bring him straight to the ER for further testing. Praying everything is ok with our ‪#‎littlemiracle‬. Thanks to everyone this weekend for your support for ‪#‎KoltynBradley‬ it means the world to our family the love & support our amazing community has shown us.

Rod Venable will be having surgery this week.  Keep him and Bridgette in your prayers.

Please continue to pray for Joe Easley and his family.

Another family that is in need of our prayers if that of Bobby Lawson.  He is at home.

 Jadon’s Journey

Update on Jadon’s foot. The orthopedic called yesterday and said that after reviewing his xrays that it looks like a fracture. It is not his tendon like we originally thought. We will go back to Childrens Monday to get a cast. He is not happy about it. He wants it to come off now because he says it feels better. He is such a tough little boy. He kept telling me there was a crack inside his foot. Well he was right. His brace that he wears was giving him enough support to walk and that’s why he was having so much trouble when we took it off. It also explains why it was getting worse daily. It had to be hurting him and he never complained of pain. My tough little guy! (Written by his mom)

Pray for my friend, Barbara B. Gaines, as she battles a very rare form of lung cancer.  She has a good attitude and looks good.  Please pray for her family too!

Macy Gueldner

They’ve identified the bacteria as E Coli. It started in her gut and traveled to the bloodstream. Pretty serious stuff, but it responds well to almost any antibiotic, so that’s why the meds started working right away. If her cultures from today are clear tomorrow, we’ll go home on IV antibiotics for 10 days.
