Prayers, please

My cousin's husband has a blood clot in his brain that he is having removed on Thursday!  If you are a long time follower of mine, you know that my cousins are much closer to me than normal cousins.   We were pretty much raised as siblings.  This is the cousin who is only 4 months older than I am, so the one I am closest to.  Any way her husband is only 58 years old - my age!!!!!  He has a small, leaking blood clot behind the eye, even with the temple.  They are going to remove it.  He has had an excrutiating head ache since a week ago last Friday, so over a week and a half!  Finally, today, the doctors have decided to DO something about it!  They admitted him to the hospital and gave him morphine for the pain.  He is feeling some better, now.  My cousin is really scared, though.  Please remember them and their two 20 something sons in your prayers.  I will keep you informed.
This is the cousin who spent the night at the nursing home with me the night that my mother died.

The doctors are assuring my cousin that this is not a life threatening problem, but going into the brain cannot be good.  As I said above, please remember him, his wife, and his two sons, and the rest of the family in your prayers.


  1. They are all added to my prayers Julia- I will be thinking of them with all my heart ♥

  2. Prayers will be said here in NM.
