I would  like prayer for two family members with heart issues. My 13 year old grandson Jeremiah continued healing for heart after heart procedure which went smoothly.   And my mom Donna who's scheduled for surgery to clean out her carotid artery on July 1.  And for me as I travel to Chicago area to help my mom with my granddaughter for 2 weeks.

Please pray for Dody Ellis, wife of Steve Ellis (who is one of my pickleball friends).  She has a large kidney stone, 10mm, that is causing problems.  She is in Archbold Memorial in Thomasville.  She is undergoing her second surgical procedure of the week.  The doctors are uncertain of how to solve the problem of such a large stone.

Michelle is out of hospital and doing very well. Her oxygen level is back up to 98%! The severe asthma attacks that she was experiencing were brought on by a change in her blood pressure medicine a few weeks ago. While at the drugstore getting new prescriptions filled after leaving the  hospital, the pharmacist said you should not be taking this medicine now or ever! It's the reason you've been having asthma attacks, I'm sure. As soon as she stopped taking that medication, her oxygen level became normal, thank God. She's still having some problems, of course, because her lungs were damaged a lot during all of these attacks, so she really still needs  your prayers. Michelle asked me to thank everyone who has been praying for her with great appreciation.

Rentz had his follow up appointment and had his staples removed. Everything is looking great! He will have to follow up with oncology and will have upcoming appointments. Praise God for the good report and thank you all for your prayers!

Rentz is doing amazing and is at home!  We are still waiting on results from brain tissue that was collected and will have some follow up appointments.  He says he has felt every prayer and says "thank you".

Rentz is out of surgery.  The surgeon said it went well.  He will be in recovery for an hour or two and then ICU.  Please continue praying.
