Elmore, DanPrevious Requests

Debbie Faulkner is asking for your prayers. Debbie has a number of chronic health problems and was recently diagnosed with stage 4 kidney disease. She is seeking God’s merciful intervention and His Will to be done. Thank you in advance for your prayers.
Gonzalez, PauloPrevious Requests
Marcos reports that Paulo's operation yesterday was successful. When the nurse was waking him up and removing the oxygen, he had a spasm and was sedated again. He slept well and has been comfortable. Marcos has been able to talk with him; he is in good spirits and will be under observation for another couple of days before being discharged. Marcos and his family are grateful for God's oversight and blessing, as well as your prayers.
Marcos Gonzalez is asking for your prayers on behalf of his son, Paulo, 36. Paulo is scheduled for an operation next week on Thursday to address his severe sleep apnea. The procedure involves a tonsillectomy, tongue channeling, and uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP). Because he does not have private health insurance, Paulo has been waiting several years for this procedure. Marcos and Paulo would be grateful for your prayers for the success of the operation. Thank you in advance.
Henson, Amanda and DaxiaColorado Springs, Colorado
Teresa reports that Amanda performed her first voluntary movement, raising her eyebrow when the doctor requested it. She had surgery on her wrist, and she received a feeding tube and trachea, as well as a catheter, all of which had put her in a fair amount of pain. By Saturday, she was breathing on her own with 35% oxygen. She is also off all the IVs, and they now administer even the blood thinner as crushed tablets in her feeding tube. Please keep her in your prayers as she still has a great deal of recovery and rehabilitation ahead of her. Thank you!
While she can feel all over, Amanda is currently paralyzed throughout her body, being able to move only her eyes and eyelids. The neurologist cannot see any permanent damage to her brain stem or stroke damage from her injured carotid artery. She does have some damage to her brain stem that should heal over time, which will likely allow her to move again. He will give her another MRI in a week to see if there is any permanent damage that is not showing up yet. Also, there is no sign that she was without oxygen between the accident and her arrival at the hospital. Thank you for your continued prayers for her recovery.
Teresa reports that Daxia has been released from the hospital and is resting at home.
As for Amanda, she is out of the coma and answering questions with her eyes. She can move her head and shoulders. Her neurologist said that, despite the trauma to her brain, she has little-to-no brain swelling. He told Matt that such injuries can take up to six months to heal. As for her responses to stimuli, she opened her eyes wide when asked, but she made no response when her fingers or toes were stimulated (though Matt tickled her foot later, and it twitched). The neurologist is concerned about brain stem damage and will review the MRI that was taken. Matt says he is encouraged because she understood him and responded well to his directions. Please keep them in your prayers. Thank you.
Hiebert, Lyla (6)Previous Requests
Lycia Saxton Hiebert requests prayers for her six year old daughter, Lyla Brynn Hiebert, recently diagnosed with Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EOE). (Lyla is the granddaughter of Loren and Margi Saxton.) This inflammatory disease is a response to food allergens. Lyla has been put on a highly restricted diet (no milk or dairy products, no eggs, no wheat, soy, no nuts, and no fish, except salmon) for the next three months in an attempt to cleanse her system completely of potential irritants from these food groups. Foods will then be gradually re-introduced to identify those that trigger the inflammation. Please pray that Lyla will be able to comply with the diet and tolerate the long investigative process. As there is no known cure, the family is seeking God's intervention and complete healing of Lyla, according to His will. Thank you.
Hobbs, JanPrevious Requests
When starting to operate on Jan, her surgeon discovered an extreme infection. He had to stop the procedure, clean out the infection, and close up the site again until the infection clears up. Jan has to wear a large body brace for about 6 weeks before the damage in her back can be repaired. Please continue to pray for her.
Holley, LawrencePrevious Requests
Lawrence is asking for your prayers on his behalf. He had not been feeling well over the past few days, and noticed that his blood pressure was on the high side. That was confirmed by his doctor, who increased the dosage on his medication. Lawrence would appreciate prayers for God's resolution of the problem. Thank you in advance.
Lemieux, Dan (43)Previous Requests
We appreciate your prayers for Dan. He has come out of spinal surgery—he is in and out of consciousness and in good spirits. He can move everything except for his hands. He has a lot of pain on the backs of his hands, which feel like they have been hit with a hammer and is experiencing an intense burning sensation. Please continue to pray for his recovery from both the injury and the surgery. Thank you!
Your prayers are requested for Dan Lemiuex, father of Jordan and Logan Lemiuex, grandchildren of Martin and Susan Collins. Dan was diving into a pool yesterday when he hit his head on the bottom. He was pulled out of the pool, revived by the paramedics then taken to the hospital, but became partially paralyzed during the accident. He was transferred to the main hospital last night where he went into surgery at 10:30 this morning. No one is able to see him until 8:00 this evening, when they will admit one person. Thank you!
Montgomery, GaryPrevious Requests
Please continue to keep Gary and Carol Montgomery in your prayers. Carol continues to have some sinus congestion and Gary is experiencing a digestion problem that does not seem to be related to the Corona Virus. It seems to be related to the same problem he was having a couple of years ago when he was experiencing quite a bit of abdominal pain and was unable to eat or drink very much. However, they will not allow him in to see the Gastroenterologist until he has passed the 14 day Covid19 Quarantine period, so he is scheduled for a virtual appointment with the Doctor tomorrow. Please continue to seek God's merciful intervention for both Carol and Gary in this difficult time. Thank you for your prayers.
Mwila, SashiPrevious Requests
Sashi is asking for your prayers for her nephew, who was left in her care and started having seizures. The cause of the seizures is unknown. Please pray for God's intervention and healing, as well as guidance through the challenges that COVID-19 is causing in hospitals. Thank you.
Puliafico, Cecilia (99)Previous Requests
Cecelia's son, Joe, died yesterday unexpectedly. Please pray for God to bless Cecelia with comfort, encouragement, and peace during this very difficult time. Please also pray for her two other children (Mary and Jim); since Joe did not have any other immediate family, they are traveling to make funeral arrangements and settle his affairs. Since Cecelia is almost 100, and also because of Covid-19, she will not be able to make the trip. Thank you for your prayers.
Reiss, JohnPrevious Requests
In an update on his Sister-in-law Kathy, John Reiss would like you to know that she is finally well enough to be heading home next Thursday (July 30) and he would like to thank everyone for your prayers on her behalf.
Sablich, CraigPrevious Requests
I have another court session on Wednesday morning, July 29. This one will possibly be the final judgment on custody of our girls. I am asking brethren to please ask our Father for His mercy, that this will be closure on this whole situation so that we can finally have peace. I am asking that God's will be done in the best interest for my family. Thank you all for your unending support and love.
Sakala, BupeLusaka, Zambia
Prayers are requested for Bupe, who has an attack of inflamed tonsils. She was away from home and did not have her usual remedy at hand. Please pray that this remedy may continue to give her relief and that there will be no need to resort to more invasive measures. Thank you.
Sakala, MusondaLusaka, Zambia
As the week begins, there are some important events taking place in my sister's family. Please pray for God's divine intervention and for protection for our entire family as these events take place, that the Eternal may grant us His favor and hide us under the shadow of His wings. Thank you in advance.
