prayer request for Austin Marino

Pray warriors Just found out that old church members, Eddie and Vickie Snider's grandson, Austin Marino was in a bad motorcycle wreck, prayers for him and his family.

Love and prayers,

prayers for July 30

Please remember Julie Bradley throughout the day today but especially at 1:15 which is her scheduled time for her and her attorney to meet with the Shelby County mental health judge.   The Lord will be there too!  :)

Update on Beth Black:  She is still unconscious but is responding to some external stimuli.  The doctors still don't know the extent of her head trauma and are waiting for her to wake up.   Please include her in your prayers and ask for God's healing to continue and strength for the family to continue to care for her in the ways needed while she is sleeping.

Let me give you also a brief update on Gracie Poole.  She and her parents went to Houston to meet with the doctors there regarding her lung transplant.  She made a big impact on the doctors and nurses there, stole their hearts I understand!  The relocation to Houston does not have to happen just yet.  The doctors there and here in B'ham are in communication and working together for the best care for Gracie. 

This is from Gracie's mom's blog:

She is definitely a lung transplant candidate-however they feel it's too soon for her to be put on the waiting list. I honestly was shocked by that conclusion! They say she needs to be in the best possible physical shape and also weaned down off of her ventilator and oxygen as much as possible, if possible. They also want us to discontinue her ivig infusions-which are to boost her immune system-to see how her bodies levels are on its own now-she hasn't been without these infusions for 3 years now. She is on the bare minimum settings on her ventilator anyway and has been for some time now. She has been on 1 1/2 liters of extra O2 for a long time now, so we started watching her sats and turned down her O2 and she has been without any extra O2 for two shop days now-that is also a first! So this week she will start boot camp, for lack of a better term. HA she will have Extra PT and try to beef up her muscles and endurance as much as she can tolerate.

So you see they have a lot to do and just so you understand the situation, the tests in Houston concluded that Gracie's lungs are performing at an unsatisfying rate.  She has part of one of her lungs removed some time ago and now much of the lung she has left is black and nonfunctioning.  Her doctor said that if you were to put both her lungs together, they would be functioning at just under 50%.  Yet Gracie still enjoys her play time and her siblings and all that she is able.  Their family gives all the credit to God.  And the other thing is Gracie is well aware that God is right there with her and will tell you so!
