Please pray for my uncle, Olan Connell.  He had his gallbladder out a while back and he is having a hard time eating.  I know a lot of people have problems after gallbladder surgery, but it is so hard for them to eat.  Please pray for him.  Brenda

Update on Aunt Glenda Faye from Sheri.  Good day yesterday, good night last night, good day today... so far.... Hopefully get out of the ICU by the end of the week.  God is Good!  Thanks Peggy

My best friend / sister from high school, Crystal Sexauer, who is also from Ohio, has been diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer and we're just not sure how it's going to turn out.  There are some circumstances that they have to figure out before they can do any surgery, so it could be either way.  I know it's in God's hands and he will do as He sees necessary.  I just ask that you would please keep her in your prayers for peace and not a lot of pain.

She gave her life to Christ about 3 years ago, one afternoon at Flat Creek with Brother Mickey and myself, so I know that God has her in his hands.  I saw a great difference in her.  She went back to Ohio, found herself a church, and has been going ever since.  Dink

5/30/21

Jonathan Exum will be moved tomorrow to Tallahassee.

Please pray for my brother, Gary Jones, from Vandalia, Ohio.  He was taken by ambulance this morning to hospital with trouble breathing.  They tested and he has COVID.  Tyler, his son, went to see him this morning and found him, so he call EMT.  Please pray for God to intervene.  I thank you for your prayers in advance.  Dink

Another update from this morning on Glenda Faye Bailey:  She is awake and alert.  Seems better but had atrial fibrillation all night.  Wanted coffee and breakfast.

Update on Glenda Faye Bailey:  Surgery went well.  She had 3 aneurysms.  They repaired the one that was bleeding.  They will address the other two spots at a later time.  She had a good morning yesterday, but by the afternoon she wasn't doing as good.  I haven't heard anything yet on how she did last night.  I'm sure it's going to be rough for the next few days, even if all goes well. She will be staying in Jacksonville at least 14-21 days.  

5/26/21

Please pray for Lucy Goforth.  She was life flighted to Augusta today with breathing problems.

Would you please put my Aunt, Glenda Faye Bailey, on the prayer chain?  She has been life flighted to the Baptist Hospital in Jacksonville, FL.  She has a 4mm aneurysm with a brain bleed, and they are taking her in for surgery as soon as she gets there.  Also pray for Uncle Braxton, Sheri, and the rest of the family.  Thank you.  Love you!         Peggy Rowan

Please pray for a friend/co-worker, Lisa.  She is having a heart cath this Thursday morning @ 7:30.  She has already had stints and the doctor is saying the bottom part of her heart is not working.  She works a LOT of hours @ 2 jobs.  She doesn't have a lot of family.  Thank you for praying.  Ree

5/24/21

Please pray for Betty Peters.  She broke her hip and has been in rehab.  Starting to heal.  Pray soon she can put weight on it and get back home.

UPDATE:  PA just called and said we are delaying transfer to Tallahassee for Jonathan because Tallahassee hospital said he has to be fever free for 48 hours.

Update from Mary:  Jonathan Exum still doing good with trach collar.  Physical therapy came and did some exercise on him, but Jonathan is still weak so he falls asleep.  He is still spiking fevers but that's probably still the pneumonia but redoing cultures just to be sure.  He is off all medication besides blood thinners, antibiotics and little bit of pain meds because he lets them know he is in a little bit of pain.  She did say early today he was a lot more alert and tries to talk but she tells him he has that trach in and it's difficult to do that, but he does let them know yes or no other ways.  He has made good steps.  All his critical care needs are met and still on the track to move to Tallahassee tomorrow.  I am so thankful for all who have been there for us and the continued prayers.  Mostly thankful for God.  He has been a healer and listens when I sometimes think he doesn't..  Pray for smooth trip tomorrow everyone.

Update of Gritt:

We are going home!  At some point today we will be heading back to Pearson with our healthy baby boy!

I'm just as grumpy as Gritt about this part, but we will not be able to have any visitors for a while.  Once we do, we will have to be extra cautious (hand washing, no kissing, etc).  Gritt can contract RSV again and any type of infection or illness triggers his SVT episodes.  We are focused on keeping him safe and know everyone understands..as difficult as it is to not be able to squeeze him just yet.

5/20/21

Update on Jonathan Exum:

Jonathan has a massive blood clot. It goes all the way up his leg into his belly.  They are going to do a better scan to see if they are going to have to do a thrombectomy to get it, but may see that the scan shows there is no need for surgery, and they can treat with medication.  Other than that he is doing good.  Still getting aggravated when they bother him.  Everyone please pray!

Please pray for Frances Tucker.  She is having issues with her liver.

Update on Jonathan.  Doctor was going to take him off the ECMO machine today which is real good!!!

But they are having to put a longer tube for the tracheostomy (that's the vent) because there is air going out around one side and that's causing an air pocket.  Going to release some air trapped by doing small incisions on each side.  They are going to give him a few more days on the ECMO machine, not sure how long he will be on vent.  He is awake some and following commands. Can't talk because of trach being down his throat, but I asked doctor what his saturation was, and she said when he relaxed it's in the low 90s and when bothering him it's 80s.  That is a lot better from when he was in Valdosta.  It was in the 30s/40s on just vent.  From Mary Exum.
