Thanks for all the prayers!

ImageI am happy to report healing on all fronts, thanks to the amazing outpouring of prayer and concern of so many people.

First, our four-year old grandson, Vinny, is recovering from successful brain surgery, during which the surgeon removed a tumor the size of the surgeon’s fist.  Vinny is in for a long recovery, but he’s already out of bed a bit, eating solid food and being delightfully cranky to everyone around him!  The surgeon told our daughter and son-in-law that, if he hadn’t operated when he did, he doubted that Vinny would have survived last weekend.  So, thanks to all the prayer warriors out there!

Second, my sister Jeannie, who is no longer four years old, is also successfully recuperating from cancer surgery.  My two sisters and I were blessed to have some quality time together during this same trip, and we ask for your continued prayer for her ongoing recovery.

Third, my wife’s health appears to be on the mend as well, so thanks for all the prayers for her as well!

All in all, a stressful time, but one that has proven the extraordinary power of love and prayer.

Our humble thanks to you all.

Tomorrow, back to Pope Francis!
