I am also thanking God for the medical team in the transplant unit at UAB for all their care and bringing their expertise to bear in service to our spiritual family members.

Friends and Prayer Warriors,
Here is the latest update I have for David Davis. He is still struggling a bit today with fluid retention and has not been feeling very good. He did not get to move out of the Critical Care ICU due to the problems he faced yesterday.
The head surgeon is constantly reminding us of the seriousness of David’s situation and that the first 72 hours are a critical time. He tends to take a negative position about David’s chances, but we are holding onto hope and giving thanks to our Heavenly Father for how things have gone so far.
Let’s continue to pray for David’s heart to heal. Please also join me in praying for the surgeon to be more compassionate in dealing with the patients. Let’s ask our Heavenly Father to use David’s recovery as a witness to the medical professionals.
Thanks for caring and praying.

Last week my mama, Trish fell and broke her right femur & the top of her right knee. She is in rehab and doing well. She sees the orthopedic doctor tomorrow, at this time it is no surgery and 6 weeks no weight baring.

I know that it will all settle down but for now it’s a bit chaotic.

UPDATE: Eve Patton, May 20, 2019
Her cast was removed Monday the 13th – 3 weeks ahead of schedule. The doctor said “she has had miraculous and fast healing” and was able to remove her cast without having to sedate her which allowed her to avoid a costly $7,000 bill! Megan said she’s been scooting all over the house and enjoying her new found freedom. Most likely in the next 1-2 weeks she’ll gradually start building up confidence to put pressure on the leg and start walking again. One additional thing we’d like prayer on is the full restoration of her leg. It’s 1.5 inches shorter than her other leg which is quite dramatic. The doctor said we shouldn’t be worried but it’s still concerning as it could have health implications if it doesn’t level back out. She goes in tomorrow for a checkup on her recovery progress. (Original PR on April 15 below)

(Stephen Glover on May 2, 2019) Jesus entered the region of the Gadarenes and a man coming out of the tombs met Him and said, “Have you come to torment us before the time?” The demons infecting his mind and body fled into the swine at the Lord’s command and the man was dressed and in his right mind when the people from the city arrived. God’s Spirit is the only source of a “sound mind” in a world that is driving people over the brink of madness! Pray that Abba will give us His strength to stand as a wall before the enemy and to continuously attack the “gates of hell” itself! Hallelujah!

She fell about 5 feet and all her weight landed on her right leg which caused her to snap her femur bone. It was a clean break, they put her under sedation and re positioned it before casting it. She is in a cast torso down so she is unable to move for the next 3-4 weeks as the healing begins.Your prayers for healing appreciated.
