Today wasn’t the day for removal of the vent, but they plan to try again tomorrow.  Leslie  was on the CPAP trial this afternoon and doing great.  She needed to go 30 minutes.  She was acing it — even coughed a couple of times and remained stable..   Then about 20 minutes in she started a prolonged coughing spell which affected her breathing and they had to stop CPAP.  She was upset and we were all greatly  disappointed.  The nurse started light sedation again to help her rest.  She was so, so close.  Lord, we pray tomorrow is the day!  She rested comfortably for a while but was wide awake at 5 pm. and very communicative.

Please be praying for Leslie Hemphill now. Prayerfully she will be extobated today. That means off the vent. HThey are planning to do CPAP trial this afternoon.

Prayer Warriors and Facebook Friends, please remember to pray for my boss, Mr. Dale Perkins, and his son, Clay Perkins.  They are still hospitalized, fighting Covid 19 with pneumonia.  They have won a few battles in connection with this enemy, but the war is still raging in their bodies.  They have both had this virus to turn on them overnight.
As I am typing this, they are experiencing some critical activity from this illness.  The family, and myself, are requesting you to bow the knee and ask our Father to spare their lives.  I have felt guilty of praying so selfishly, but then I remembered that our God knows us better than we know ourselves – he hears the cries of our heart.  So pray without doubt asking ABBA, our all-knowing, all-loving God, to hear and answer our cry for healing to come to both of them.  Thank you so much.  ~Peggy Worsham

Good morning all. Most know, but I figured I’d give a little update. Correy and I both took at home covid tests yesterday evening. His came back negative and mine came back positive. He took me to an urgent care and they decided that since I’m 30 weeks preggers and my heart rate was slightly elevated, that they would admit me. Currently not on any oxygen, just breathing room air and holding right around 93-94%. Pray that continues. I do have bilateral pneumonia, so pray we can get rid of the fluids. They did a cat scan of my heart for blood clots, but I haven’t heard anything one way or the other. They did give me a blood thinner so not sure if it’s preventative or what. I don’t have much of an appetite, but I am eating, and this cough is driving me bonkers. Lily appears to be doing well. Love y’all. Thank you for all the prayers. Keep them coming. ❤️ Leslie Hemphill

Update on Gracie Lautaret. Gracie had her surgery today and we are once again Praising God for His goodness and mercy. The surgery went very well and she was able to come home this evening. Gracie has been in pain, (sometimes severe) since early June. In July she fell and fractured a vertebrae to make things even worse. The vertebrae was repaired with cement at that time, but her neck surgery was today. God has blessed us through this storm, and immediately after her procedure she was pain free, including a pain in another part of her back that we thought was from the fracture. I can’t tell you how wonderful it is to hear my lovely bride say those three sweet words, “I’m not hurting”. HALLELUJAH !! PRAISE GOD!!  We love you all and thanks for praying!  Buddy and Gracie Lautaret

Unfortunately, I have another major prayer request. I should have sent this out Friday, but I hesitated and now need your prayers more than ever.
Recently, I have been having excruciating headaches and they originate behind my left eye. This is the eye that had a detached retina in Jan., 2020, and also had a ruptured vessel in it shortly after my bilateral mastectomy. Unfortunately, my mother and her father (my maternal grandfather) both died as the result of brain tumors. My grandfather was 38 and my mother 75. So Dr. Frase has scheduled a CT scan for Tuesday at noon followed by a visit with my retina specialist Dr. Bains Wed., at 2:30.
One source of comfort is I had a MRI 5 years ago and no tumor was detected. They thought my mother’s tumor originated when she was 55. So that was good news.
Anyway, please pray this is nothing serious. This not only affects me, but all my siblings, children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, etc.
I am not fearful because I know God has a plan for my life. Thank you all for supporting me during my recent cancer ordeal.  Love you all dearly,  Carolyn Northcutt

Please be in prayer for my niece, Mary Salmon Tucker. Fran, her MIL, took her to the ER…not sure what is wrong…could have been a stroke. Thanks in advance for all your prayers.  ~Steve, Lana & Emily Snider

Vernon & Donnie Freeman’s grandson, Daniel, has had 3 amputations this week. His right leg above the knee, his left foot and his left hand. All due to septic blood. He is in a lot of pain. Please pray for comfort and healing. Thanks for lots of continuing prayers.

Doris Moore is brought her son, Bill home from Dallas Saturday. He has a long way to go but has come far. Prayer does work. Thank you Woodland Hills for praying.
