Prayer Request for David

Back in January I requested your prayers, positive thoughts and good energy for our friend David, who was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia. Since that time he's done remarkably well with chemotherapy, and about a month ago made the decision to undergo a bone marrow transplant in May.

Today we received scary news--David went into the hospital last night with abdominal pain and needs surgery. The problem is, surgery would put him at risk for infection, and it could prove fatal to take that risk. But it could also prove fatal not to treat the blockage which is behind his abdominal pain.

As I write this, David's doctors are trying to decide what the next step is. So again I request your prayers, positive thoughts and good energy for David. Pray for healing, for guidance for his doctors, for courage and strength for David, his wife Becky and their son Isaac.

Thanks so much. Easter blessings to all. He is risen indeed!
