Prayer Requests

I know there are lots of our friends and family that are prayer warriors, and right now we could use a few extra prayers if you get a chance. Jeremy just finished up at the dermatologist office this afternoon. He had two different procedures done. He had some freezing done in three different places in his face for pre-cancerous cells. The doctor said that at his age (he's only 32) this shouldn't be a problem, but his initial appointment was for just one spot and then they found two more when he went in. This is something that we'll have to keep an eye on and make sure that he uses a sunscreen of at least SPF 50.

He also had a large tumor removed from his arm (about the size of a golf ball). The doctor thinks that it is probably a lipoma, but sent it off to be sure. Jeremy also has several more of these tumors (two more on his arms, a few on his legs, and one on his lower back) that the doctor would like to remove. The problem is that he initially has said that he doesn't want to remove more than one at a time. Jeremy has several stitches, has to take antibiotics for the next several days and goes back in two weeks to get the stitches removed. If he has to do this for each tumor, it will be very costly and very time consuming, not to mention having to drag out the pain of all the procedures.

Please pray that (1) the tests will come back benign, and (2) that if Jeremy does well the doctor will agree to remove more than one at a time. The doctor did say today that depending on how Jeremy heals, he may be able to do more than one at a time. The one they removed today was also the biggest one and bothers him the most.

On another note, my mom is having knee surgery on Thursday for a torn meniscus. Please say a prayer for her as well. Thank you!
