Hey, friends. This is just a quick request for prayer. My dad's mother, known to us as Gran, has been in the hospital for almost two weeks now after an emergency surgery to remove a kinked section of her lower intestine. This procedure is not altogether uncommon, yet Gran's recovery has not been routine. Her doctors are currently using a new therapy which we hope will help her digestive system get back on track. A second surgery is possible, but could be dangerous given her age and current condition. A more thorough description I will not attempt, since I don't understand all of the medical terminology, but would you please pray for my Gran? (Her name is Sharon.) If you will join us in asking God for a full and speedy recovery without further surgery, you will have our deep gratitude! Please pray for Grandpop (Ned, Gran's husband), as well, as the stress and frequent trips to the hospital are a significant strain, especially given his already poor health. Thank you so much!
