A Prayer Request For A Friend's Wife

I have a prayer request for the wife of a good internet friend. Ann is in the hospital in Chicago undergoing a new therapy to arrest and possibly partially reverse an auto-immune disease that has put her in a wheelchair. This procedure is much like they do with bone marrow transplants, except they use the patient's own stem cells to reboot the immune system. Ann was doing OK until she got an infection that has caused severe pneumonia. She's now on a ventilator and feeding tube. Her new immune system is fighting the infection, but her doctors think they might have to do a procedure to remove the fluid on Ann's lungs. Ann is also extremely frustrated because the ventilator makes it impossible to speak. Please keep Ann and her husband Bob in your prayers. They are a truly beautiful couple!

I hope it is only a short-lived setback, and that Ann starts back on the road to recovery very soon!

PS, thanks for the nice comment on my 'wire hider.' As far as Irene, we were lucky at my house to have power so fast. Some people still don't, a week later!

Hi! I hope things have gone well for your friend's wife. I just wanted to stop by and say thanks for coming over to my blog again!

Hey, friend, how are you? You always make such nice comments on my blog and yet I feel I never get to admire your work or answer you directly. I hope things are going well. Happy New Year!
