BASELA family, I have an urgent prayer request for you. With permission from the family, I share this news from a text I received just a short time ago.

Sylvester Humphrey, serves as director of The Hope Center in Two Rivers along with his wife Shirley. Today, “Sylvester was diagnosed with cancer in the pharynx area. He is going for a PET scan and CAT scan Friday morning. We will see a surgeon in the near future to determine where the starting and stopping points of the cancer are and then a treatment plan will be determined.”

Please keep both Sylvester and Shirley in your prayers during this time. I’m sure as details become available, they will share them.

Maddie’s Miracles

(Written Sunday afternoon)

Maddie has an appendix and it is fine!! She has mesenteric adenitis which means the lymph nodes in her mesentary are swollen again. They are going to treat them with anti inflammatory meds. They said it normally takes about 48 hours for the pain to go away. She can’t normally take anti inflammatory meds because of her kidney so she will have to get labs this week to keep a check on her kidney. We are thankful for no surgery and your prayers are most appreciated. Please keep them coming as she is still in pain. God is good ALL the time!

(Written early Tuesday morning)

Prayers for Maddie are appreciated. She is on her way back to the ER. She has a high fever. Her kidney doctor said the adenitis can be caused from infection so they will have to figure out what is going on. Prayers they figure it out quickly as she is miserable. I will post as soon as I know something
