    In April they were sure she was at the end of her battle and we prayed for a peaceful end. God wasn't ready yet and in June she had recovered enough to get out of bed. She even went to Walmart.

    By August she was going downhill again. Friday she was rushed to the hospital because she was hemmoraging from the liver. Tomorrow morning she is being flown into Seattle for surgery. They are planning to remove about half of her liver. The docs say if all goes well it should repair all the liver problems once and for all and she will be able to live a normal life without pain.

    She just called me from the hospital and she is terrified. She asked me to come here and ask everyone to pray for her. She knows there is a chance she might not survive surgery but she won't live without it. It is in God's hands now.

    Please join me in asking Our Father to bring her safely through this surgery. And pray for her husband Larry, and her children Matt, Alison, and Jesse.

    I can't imagine how terrifying it must be for her to be going through this.

    I am asking God to surround her with his angels, that he give her his peace and that he will bring her through this safely. May he give her surgeons the skill and wisdom needed to save her. May he give her many more years of a healthy, full life and may she go on to touching others who might be in the same position. Give her family strength, peace and the assurance that she is being watched over. This we ask in the name of Jesus, our lord and savior. Amen.

    Thanks so much to everyone who replied and are praying for Jeanne. Also thanks to the many that are praying even though they didn't write a reply. I know myself that I seldom write although I am praying for everyone here.

    I am on pins and nedles waiting to hear from Larry to let me know all went well. But they weren't sure what time surgery was going to be or how long it will take. So I guess I just wait and pray..

    I will post give an update as soon as I hear from Larry.

    I haven't heard anything from Larry yet. I'm scared. I will call the house in the morning. I'm praying that all is well and he's just too busy to call. Thanks for all your prayers. I'll keep you posted.

    I'm sorry that I didn't see your post earlier, I don't know how I missed it.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your friend Jeanne, My heart goes out to her and her family. I will certainly be praying that all goes well with her surgery.

    Well I just talked to her son Matt. She is in Seattle but hasn't had surgery yet. Everything was supposed to be set up for yesterday but it didn't happen. They are trying to find a doctor to do the surgery. I guess it is pretty complicated so they want someone that knows what they are doing.

    Unfortunatly, this setback just adds to her stress. Please pray they find a surgeon soon.

    Thanks for all your prayers. I will update when I hear anything.

    First off she asked me to thank everyone here for their prayers. She still hasn't had surgery but is meeting with a team of doctors tomorrow morning. She will have to have 4 surgeries to get everything taken care of. First they will remove her spleen. The second surgery they will put in some sort of stent. She couldn't remember what the 3rd surgery was. And the final surgery they will remove about half her liver.

    She is going home tuesday with new meds to try and get her system stabilized. She thinks the first surgery will be in the beginning of Oct. She will have to be in the hospital for about 5 weeks. All the surgeries will probably be about a week apart. Then she will spend another 3 weeks in a skilled nursing care facility.

    She will be alone most of the time because her husband has to work and they have kids to take care of. I am trying to figure a way to visit her in the hospital but it's not looking good. But I'm not giving up.

    Jeanne takes great comfort knowing that people here are praying for her and her family. Her only family is her husband and her children. And she has lost most of her friends since she has been sick. Please pray that I find a way to visit her. And please keep her and her family in your prayers.

    I'll keep you posted as I get updates.
