Linny could use your prayers!

Dear Friends of Linny,

This is Dwight and I am writing you because I know you as faithful blog friends and by your love for Linny.   I am currently writing you from her hospital room while she sleeps on and off all day.   Her liver is “very sick” according to the doctors and they have termed it acute liver disease.   They are doing a myriad of tests to discover all that is going on and it looks like she will be here for awhile.  A nurse practitioner told us her liver numbers should be below 20 but hers are over 4000.  Which caught the attention of all the different specialists.


They have said that at a minimum she has “Acute Hepatitis A”.  They are doing a number of other tests.  She never complains, but when she just couldn’t rally I knew something was very wrong.  As you know, she doesn’t like anything to be about her, but I know that not only would you like to know but I know that you will storm heaven with your prayers!    Please pray and don’t stop till this passes.

Thanks you on behalf of Linny and our entire family!   Dwight
