I have two dear friends who are in need of your prayers. You may recall me telling you about baby Jacob Pike, who was born at 30 1/2 weeks. He's had a little set-back in the past week. He had been upgraded from the NICU to a private room on the neonatal floor but experienced abdominal swelling and was readmitted to the NICU for observation and testing. I have not heard anything from Jen about the results of those tests. I'm hoping that no news is good news. But in the meantime, please keep the Pike/Willingham families in your prayers.
Also, my voice teacher is experiencing some tough times right now. She is a recent newlywed. And her husband has had some health problems since returning from some late summer vacationing. Initially, he believed he had a ruptured disc in his back. But an MRI showed this was not the case. The pain has since moved around quite a bit. He was admitted to the hospital last week for severe pain. While an official diagnosis has not been made, the doctors have mentioned the possibility of bone cancer. Facing cancer is particularly difficult for them as both of them have lost spouses to cancer. Please pray for the Tull family.
