Please pray for my dear friend Mary who is the wife of one of our other pastors. She is my "boss" for one of my responsibilities at church but additionally she's a great friend. She has been struggling since January 9th with stomach/intestinal issues, having severe vomiting and diarrhea, going into the hospital, being tested and treated, being released only to be back in within a week. She's on her 4th time in the hospital and after being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, they found out that it is not that but she has c diff, which is a very bad bacteria. Well, today she found she had a bulge in her side and she had another CT scan which shows fluid all around her colon/intestines. They're still watching her carefully but she's this close to having to have surgery to remove her colon. She's such a beautiful healthy woman in her 50s - and this is such a shock! PLEASE pray that she would be healed of this without having to have surgery. They may put her in ICU tonight or tomorrow and she's beyond discouraged. Thank you so much.
