Family Emergency

I would like to ask you to pray for Kathy and her family.  We found out last month that Kathy’s dad has lung cancer that has spread to other parts of his body.  When we arrived home from church Sunday afternoon, we received a phone call from Kathy’s family stating that her dad was in the hospital, and that they are calling for the family.

Today (Monday), we found out that they have given him six or seven pints of blood, and that he is not improving.  The doctors said that there was nothing they could do for him, and that they were going to release him to go home where he can be as comfortable as possible for the time that he has left.

We made arrangements for Kathy to fly home.  I don’t have a working vehicle, so Kathy took a bus to the capitol.  She then took a taxi to a friends house where she will spend the night before leaving for Missouri in the morning (Tuesday).  Once she arrives in St. Louis, she will have a three hour trip to get home to see her dad.

I am praying that she will be able to see him before he dies.  I would like to ask you to do the same, and to pray for the family during this difficult time.  Thank you.
