UPDATE: Please pray for Juliet as she starts work at the naval base in Pensacola, FL. Pray that her husband Tom will be able to find a job quickly.

Friday my niece Juliet, husband Tom and toddler Remi are flying to Jacksonville, FL. My sister and BIL, who have COVID, will meet them to bring them home to Pensacola to Juliet's next job on base. Juliet is pregnant and due to have a baby girl Sept. 22. Please for them not to get COVID, for safety traveling, and for the baby's safe delivery. Thank you.

Also please pray as I drive my dad and stepmom to church and their senior Bible study and run errands. Pray that Daddy will come to the realization that he shouldn't drive after multiple accidents.

UPDATE: The surgery went well. The doctors were able to pull out his device without incident. Please pray that the antibiotics will take care of his infection. He may be moved to rehab on Saturday.

Mike Bradford took a bad fall last Friday at the facility where he lives in Texas, and it appears that he hit on the exact spot where his Parkinson's implant is located. They think that the fall initiated an infection in his brain, which has caused him to become very ill. After a trip to the ER, they sent him directly to Ft. Worth's Harris Hospital. A doctor is preparing his surgery team to go in and totally remove the device from Mike's head. If they can get the team lined up, they will do the surgery tonight at 6 PM. Otherwise it will be at 6 AM tomorrow. Please pray for Mike: that the surgery will go well, that the infection will be cleared up quickly with no residual effects, and that Mike will not experience the tremors again once the machine is removed. Pray for Kay as she stays with him at the hospital and awaits news. Pray for God's sustaining comfort and peace for her.

UPDATE FROM MATT: Gaining strength everyday and mentally pretty sharp and personality is normal. Kidneys still are struggling to function on their own and blood hemoglobin and platelets are really low.

Biggest prayer request is for his swallow study today at 1:00. If he passes that, failed it on Monday, that is his next step to get his NG feeding tube out and then getting to go home.

Thank you again for all your love and prayers it has been an incredible blessing to our whole family.

Please be in prayer for Matt Menhennett's dad. He has been hospitalized with sepsis and multiple organ problems. The doctors believe his condition is due to a tick disease. He is on medicine for this, and the doctors are hopeful the infection is being eliminated and that recovery is ahead. However, he has had kidney failure leading to being unable to answer questions or speak his thoughts. His motor control is also hampered in his hands, and he has had difficulty swallowing. Please pray for improved kidney function, for clarity of mind, and the ability to eat well. Pray for peace and rest for the family as they are emotionally worn down. Please pray for Andra who is sick as well, though improving. Pray for a speedy recovery for her and strength.

Jane Tanner had a fall while in a store and hit her head and hand. She was taken to the emergency room and has a broken finger on her right hand. It is in a splint, which makes routine tasks challenging. She did have a scan, and her head is ok. She has a bump over her brow and a purple eye. Please pray for pain relief and healing. Pray for her caregivers, as she can't use her right hand for several weeks.
