Hey everyone,
I have a good friend who is currently in the hospital. He is retired from the AF after 30+ years he has been through hell and back for this great country and did it with a smile everyday. He was currently diagnosed with testicular cancer and went in for surgery. There were complications and he ended up having two strokes. He is currently paralyzed on the right side, unable to speak and possibly walk again. They are currently trying to get his temperature low enough to see if there is any brain damage. So I could use a little help in the prayer area, please send prayers for him and his family, his wife is also retired AF so the sacrifice that this family made is unmeasurable when one parent was always deployed. They are the most amazing people that I have ever had the wonderful priviledge to call friends. Any help that you can give would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you to my Healingwell family to help with my military family.
