Prayer Requests & Thank You Cards

September 24, 2021  –  Friday



**Brenda & Henry Hudson - Henry was discharged from the hospital yesterday afternoon.  He is doing well, so the doctor has let him go home.  Thank the Lord!  While he has been in the hospital Brenda was temporarily moved to the Hospice House in Valdese so they could take care of her.  Hopefully he will feel well enough to bring her back home soon.  Please keep them both in your prayers, as well as the family.

**Margie Austin's family - continue to keep Beverly and all of Margie's family in your prayers.

**Betty Stamey - saw the orthopedic doctor and they have scheduled her for a hip replacement on November 9th.  She has dealt with the hip pain for a long time.  Pray that everything will stay on schedule for her to have this surger.

**Billie Jean Teague - is Beth Hudson's cousin.  Beth asked that we add her to our prayer list.  She has had Lupus for several years and now they think she has cancer.  She is the daughter of Isabelle Brittain's oldest son.  Keep her in your prayers.

**Larry Lail (Randy's father) - his scan results this past week revealed that they could find no cancer now.  He will go back for blood work in October and November, then have another scan in three months.  They have taken him off any chemotherapy.  This news is such a blessing to hear and an answer to prayer.  Randy wanted me to thank the church for the prayers.

**Adam Williams - the cardiologist told Adam and Summer that there are no problems with his heart. He said there are no blockages and it is pumping good.  They want him to see his primary doctor to follow up and do blood work checking his thyroid.  Continue to pray that they will figure this out and he can get back to feeling well again soon.  

**Holly Lail - continue to keep Holly in your prayers as she still has problems with her blood pressure being up at times.  She has one more spinal chemotherapy treatment today. She went into the hospital yesterday to prepare for it.  Plans are for her to stay overnight tonight for them to monitor her blood pressure.  Also keep Randy and the boys in your prayers. 

**Helen Bivens - pray for her as she continues her therapy to regain her strength.  Visitation at Grace Heights has changed back to being by appointment.  You must call the day before to set up a time for your visit.  If you would still like to send her a card the address is the same except for the room number.   

Helen Bivens 
Room #202
109 Foothills Drive
Morganton, NC   28655 

**Jim Brittain - continue to pray for him concerning his knee problems and the problems with cellulitis in his legs.

**Robert Davis (Ronnie's brother) -  keep him in your prayers as he has now started his chemotherapy treatments.  He will have radiation daily for six weeks and chemotherapy once a week.

**Karen Bumgarner - keep her in your prayers as she continues her cancer treatments.  Also, pray for Ernie and all the family.

**Continue to pray for our health care workers, doctors, nurses, EMS, first responders and emergency personnel in these days of rising Covid cases.  They are so overworked and stressed these days.  Ask for the Lord's help and protection for them.
