Please pray for John’s Surgery Tomorrow 5/18
Please pray for John’s shoulder surgery tomorrow to repair a torn rotator cuff. It’s been a long time coming for this surgery but it is good to have it done now, before it gets any worse. Surgery starts at 1pm tomorrow. There will be a month in a sling and a couple more months of physical therapy. But John has been through it before 6 years ago when the other shoulder had the same surgery when living up in Albany. So he’s a little bit of a veteran. 🙂 But thank you for your prayers! And now for a picture of our Noah who is almost 11 months!!
We would appreciate your prayers. We live in east Orlando, about 40-50 miles from the coast where the storm is expected to land. We really need this storm to move away from the east coast of Florida and the USA. The current weather forecast for our area says that starting tonight, 5-8 inches of rain and 80-100mph winds are likely. It will last 24 hours. We have prepared the best we can. Our hope is in the Lord. We will keep you updated as we are able.
A Prayer Request for a
So John has had an annoying pain in his shoulder and the doctor said he has a rotator cuff tear. Though not a serious injury, it has to be dealt with sooner than later because recovery only takes longer as the body ages. Please pray that God would do a miracle and heal his shoulder so that he wouldn’t need to get surgery that will mean 1 month of his arm in a sling and 4 months of physical therapy, affecting everything from not being able to drive either of our two stick/manual shift cars to not being able to play his favorite sport (usually twice a week) : basketball. This week he’ll ask for some prayer from the elders at our church (James 5:14 (NIV): “Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord…”)
Yes, we are super excited, and in Ellen’s words on Facebook:
“Ellen Fleming thinks it’s a great day to announce our super fun news! John Fleming and I are having a baby end of July 2011! Yay for God’s provision and blessing in our lives this year! Hope you all will get to meet him/her this summer!”
Of course we will keep you updated as the excitement builds!
