Lord, watch over Lonna as she undergoes cataract surgery, give her a good report on the biopsy, and extend Your healing power for her complete healing and daily strength!
Prayer team please pray for me. First I had pneumonia, then I had Type B Flu, now I'm waiting for a biopsy result on my face, and I'm getting cataract surgery on Aug. 8th. Seems like a long time since I've felt well enough for church… so sorry.
God bless you all! Lonna Poland

Just thought I would drop you a line n the happenings this week. On the 26th I was brushing Bailey in the garden and when I came to straighten up the pain was unbelievable, at first I thought I had dislocated my artificial hips but as I battled to stand up straight it was fairly obviously the pain was from my kidneys and not the hips. I managed to get indoors and Alison put ice packs on my back but to no avail. I spoke to the aneurysm nurses and they were a little concerned so all system's go.
Alison drove to the hospital as this was quicker than calling an ambulance but as I had activated the AAA systems we were led by a police car through the traffic to get us to the emergency units. They booked me in and within a couple of minutes I was being wired up, bloods were taken blood pressure checked which was funny as the left arm was nearly a 1/3 higher than the right. I had a cannula fitted to my right hand and the surgeon came to see me to say they were going to CT scan me using a contrast. Within 10 minutes I was in the CT scanner and they injected the contrast through my hand which is a very strange sensation, one minute you are normal temperature and then the heat hits your hand, head, ears, arms torso and legs in rapid succession. A lot like diving into a hot bath but from the inside, very strange.
In all we are now at about 30 minutes from leaving home. Pretty rapid, Becky works at the same hospital so she had been given permission to leave work and join her Mom waiting for me to come out of the scanners. They wheel-chaired me back to where Alison was waiting and we waited for the results. Both the girls looked very worried and I was still in a lot of pain. After about 15 minutes the surgeon came back to see me all togged up so we were expecting the announcement that the op was needed.
Instead he sat down and started to tell us that the aneurysm had first been noticed 2 years ago when I had a scan on my lower spine but no one ever told us it was there. He said that the recent tests had shown that the aneurysm was at 4.9 mm and the scan just done shows it at 4.0 mm which is he put down to human error. But the fact is that the aneurysm is the same as it was 2 years ago and that it was nothing to be concerned about at this time. The scan did show a disc compression which had just occurred and they fixed it with a nerve block injection and manipulation there and then.
So, in summary God knew about this 2 years ago and considering the thing I have done in the last 2 years He has protected my system from danger. He has reduced the issue by 0.09 mm back to what is was before. Your prayers have covered us and I know the girls really feel the love and dedication from you all as do I but for me it's a bit different as I am the one going through it. It is much harder for those we love in these times than it is for the person in the center.
Thanks again for all your prayer I have another test on the 15th September and I pray it gone completely by then.
The big plus was the people nursing me and the Police who escorted us the upshot is the AAA system works within less than an hour all the tests were done the surgeons were ready and the theater prepped. The fact it was not needed is a blessing and we got the privilege to pray with some other patients while we were there. It took longer to get discharged than it did to do all the rest, and we really do need to pray about the coffee 'yuk'…..

My neighbor asked me if we could all pray for her brother John. His heart stopped they got him to hospital and have lowered his temperature and induced a coma. Hopefully when they bring him out he will be OK....He is her only living relative and she is very upset he does not live here. I told her of course we would pray. Thanks Judy

Please pray for my older sister. She had a mass in her lung. It is cancerous, but she doesn't know what kind it is or the course of treatment yet. She has to go see an onocologist. She is my only living sister. Her name is Gwen. She is a Christian, but is still nervous. Thank you for your prayers. Bonnie Lippard

Just thought I had best update the prayer team as I know they have been active in seeking the Lord for manifestation of healing for me and the family.
I attended the specialist clinic on the 14th July and had a further scan of the area, the hernia's are still present though smaller and the aneurism is still static at 4.49cm if it goes to 5.0cm then they intervein surgically.
I have to say that the test are not what I wanted to hear and I have asked to see the consultant urgently as they seem unable to tell me what I can or cannot do in order to protect myself. Both blood pressure and cholesterol are perfect and they can still not come to any decision as to why this has manifested.
Both the girls are very concerned and although they don't mention it I can see it in their eyes whenever I do anything, they want to wrap me in cotton wool but that's not me at all a you know.
Alison is in a lot of pain with her knee and is talking about delaying any operation offered which is not really an option but she is more worried about me than herself.
The have put my status as AAA which means that if I fell anything that is not familiar then I call 999 and they blue light me into hospital for immediate medical treatment.
They have scheduled me for a follow up scan in 12 weeks to monitor what is going on so I guess I will know more in October. They have banned any flying so our trip to the US this fall is canned.
Thank you for your prayers and we continue to trust in God for His healing
Phil Alison and Becky
