Prayers for Surgery

Amy is being admitted to the hospital early this morning. She is having her Colon removed tomorrow morning (Friday). She will be in the hospital for about five days. Hopefully they'll be able to do this Laprascopically instead of a open surgery. That's the hope of the surgeon. They'll also be placing her Port-a-Cath for Chemo before she comes back home.

For those of you that have ask, and want to send her a card, you can send it to:

St. Mary's Medical Center
Amanda Harms - Patient
3700 Washington Ave.
Evansville, IN 47714

She will have her laptop computer with her and be able to read the comments every one leaves her since she will have internet service at the hospital. Her internet at home should be up and running by the time she comes home. Amy's Mom will be staying at the hospital with her, and after her surgery when Amy is not up to it, her Mom will be able to read her everyone's encouraging words.

I want to ask one more thing of everyone reading here. If you can, please join us at 2:00pm today (Thursday) in a prayer for Amy's healing ... and continue to keep her in your thoughts.

Now for a wonderful little update:

Amy was baptized Sunday at Jacob's Well in Mt. Carmel. My son Joey had the pleasure of baptizing her and leading her to God. I am so proud of both of them.
