Dear Family and Friends:
Just heard from David Anderson, Tim Anderson’s brother who is critically ill , on ECMO (heart-lung assist) at Baptist Hospital. “Doing a little better. No real change in his pneumonia, but they said circulation seems to have improved more today”. PLEASE keep praying for this 42 year young, married, father of three small children from Mobile Alabama!!
Also, heard from Linda Roberts, mom to Reagan Roberts who is also on ECMO at Baptist hospital. He was transferred from Ocean Springs, MS. Per mom, the doctors at UAB, Birmingham, AL have accepted him and his physical condition is stable. They are only awaiting a bed for Reagan. The hopes of the doctors there is that he will be able to receive a double lung transplant! Just 41 years young, Reagan was perfectly health before he contracted this sepsis pneumonia that has “destroyed” his lungs per his mom. PLEASE keep Reagan in your prayers also!!
I completely forgot to lift up Carolyn Durkee, our out-patient radiation therapy patient staying with our hostess, Penny C. Per Penny, Carolyn is to have a lung biopsy soon for a suspicious area in her lung. PLEASE keep Carolyn in your prayers also!!
This is a BIG request. At this time, I only have ONE host family willing to take in out-patient chemotherapy patients. I received a request from a sweet lady this week. She is to start chemotherapy and radiation on February 10, 2020. A host family/couple/individual is such a blessing. Because of my families possibly exposing a cancer patient with infections, I cannot take these patients into our home. In the NEW Vineyard, we will be able to house TWO out-patient cancer therapy patients and their caregivers. Renovation of the carriage house is going on! I am including pictures of the work done. We hope to open in late spring.
Do you have it in your heart to accept these kinds of patients. Transportation if needed is provided by our partner, The American Cancer Society. We will be glad to off-set any groceries or supplies you may need for these out-patients. Most of the times, these patients are only here for a few days a week and go back to their homes when they are not scheduled for therapy.
The blessing you receive for taking in these out-patients far out-weigh the idea of having a house guest for a few weeks. Please call me on my cell below for any further details.
Since Hurricane Michael, our requests for out-patient chemotherapy patients has tripled! We are partnering with the American Cancer Society to help this over-load!
Blessings to all of you, Love Always in His Name!
