Prayer for Mark

Mark was admitted back to the hospital Monday night. They drained 3 liters off this time. He might be able to come home today which would let him have Thanksgiving with his family. He is not going to be able to return to work for light duty like he was hoping.

When Clint met with him, Mark said it was also on a lung in addition to the other places (listed in a post below). He is still waiting for test results to find out what kind of cancer he has and what kind of treatment they will recommend. Mark has said he will fight it in hopes it will give him more time.

Sheila told me she thought he had gallbladder problems. Mark said he was hoping it was an ulcer. The news it was advanced cancer has thrown both of them for a loop. They need prayer support from their brothers and sisters in the Lord throughout this.

Please also pray for Clint. He lost a close Christian coworker and friend to ITP five years ago and is very burdened for what Mark is going through. If you could see him, you'd see the strain on his face. Monday evening, he looked like he had aged 10 years in just a few days. He's had better sleep since then and looks better, but it's hard for him to see a friend going through so much.

Update on Jim L.: Jim told Clint yesterday that he is a Christian. :-D
