Please Pray

Remember when I told you about Cooper here?

He and his mommy and daddy, and even his big sister, have been through so much — more than I could possibly tell you about here.

But now there is a second, fast-growing tumor in his brain.  So, today at 1:30 p.m. (EDT) a team of very skilled surgeons are going to operate to remove the tumor.

When I got up this morning, there was an update from Justin about Cooper written during the night, and it ended this way:

Cooper is scheduled for surgery with Dr. G at 1:30 pm to take out the new tumor which appears to be growing at a concerning rate. I have been staring at Cooper sleeping for the last hour and can’t stop thinking about all he has been through but mainly what he is going to go through…so with this surgery brings a great deal of hope and concern.

Elise and I have one simple request – when you sit down for lunch tomorrow please say a quick little prayer for Cooper and Dr G’s strength to meet their challenges ahead.

Good night


Will you please pray for wisdom and skill for the doctors, strength for Cooper and faith and peace for his mommy and daddy?

Thank you, my friends.

    Thank you so much, Hilary.

    Thank you, Beth. I can’t imagine how this must be for them, but they have been an inspiration to us all by how they have handled it.

    Thank you, Tim. We got word that Cooper finally made it into surgery at 3 p.m. and that the first incision was made at 4:20. We are anxiously awaiting word of when the surgery is finished.
