I'm sorry I have not updated sooner on Jacobs status. The best we can figure now is that Jacob has been fighting off a virus. The Addison's test was negative, but the Endocrinologist called and said his Vitamin D is very low. Vitamin D has an effect on your immune system which would make it harder for him to fight off viruses. He's also had changes in his blood work indicating a viral cause. He's been tested for Mono a couple of times, the Dr can't completely rule it out based on his blood work, but as long as he gets better, its not critical as there is not really any treatment other than rest, which he's been doing. He's started on 50,000 IU once a week for 8 weeks for the Vit D Deficiency. He seems to be improving. (even before the Vit D) He's gained back 5 lbs, and his appetite is improving significantly. He's still nauseous, but to a lesser degree, and the fatigue is still a major problem. Hopefully this will improve with more weight gain and Vit. D supplements. Thanks to all for your prayers and support, it means the world to all of us!
Prayers of Praise and thanksgiving... Ron Borges is doing well and is to be discharged today.

Please pray for my good friend Michelle. She was engaged to her best friend and love of her life. Her wedding was this summer. Her fiancé Daniel tragically passed away Weds.. She is devastated and isn't able to communicate well right now. She need's God's love wrapped around her!
My Marvin went for his 6 mo MRI last week, which tracks the remnant tumor in his head from his 2009 surgery. (In 2010 it had increased in size and he then underwent 6 wks of radiation in Fall 2010). This latest MRI showed a modest reduction in the tumor's size as a result of the radiation; his neurosurgeon is so pleased that Marvin doesn't have to go back to see him again until June 2013. Praise the Lord for prayers answered! Please keep him in your prayers that the tumor will continue to die. Blessings, Toni Troya

Prayers of thanksgiving, Annie Bland gave birth to twins last week. Both babies weighed 6 + lbs. The little girl was put on oxygen for some breathing problems. The little boy was doing fine.
I was able to deliver Mr. Pittman's quilt today. He and his wife were very touched and were very appreciative. He actually said it took his breath away and even got a little teary eyed...we had a nice visit. What a wonderful couple.
His wife was so excited that he now has a special quilt to take with him to treatments...it even has his name on it so it wont get lost :) Thank you for allowing me to share this gift with him. I did take a picture on my phone, so I will try and get that to you soon.
He wanted me to thank the ladies from the quilting group, Maria for her special addition of the cross and the congregation for their prayers. His treatments will continue until the end of the year. Thank you again for your continued prayers for Mr. Pittman.
Love and Blessings,
Ann Marie Mitchell

Update on Sue, friend of Norma Jean and Bill Glock... she had surgery and a baseball sized tumor was removed. She is home recovering. The doctor called it a miracle. Power of prayer.

He still remains extremely weak and tired, nauseated and dizzy, and heart rate elevates too much when standing and laying down. Please pray that these symptoms disappear soon and we find answers and good treatments. He has not felt well since his Appendectomy surgery on April 2nd (two months ago) At this point the doctors feel it is very unlikely that these symptoms are related to any after effects of the surgery.
