In just our close family we have had two very serious surgeries recently for brain tumors.
Jon, the beloved husband of our niece Julie, had surgery to remove a benign brain tumor a month ago, and now has had to have another extensive surgery last week because of infection.
And two weeks ago, Cooper, the beautiful, energetic two year old son of our nephew Justin, was found to have a tumor at the base of his skull. He had 10 hours of surgery to remove it and while it was cancerous it appears they got it all.
I am very thankful that both Jon and Cooper are in large metropolitan areas where there are many doctors and medical facilities at their disposal. But, I (and they) also know that prayer is the most powerful medicine of all.
So, on this Sunday, I ask you to include our loved ones, Jon and Cooper, in your prayers.
Thank you, friends.
