Please Pray For Punky

If you have a free moment today or tomorrow please say a little prayer for Punky. She has had irritable bowel syndrome her whole life. About two weeks ago she started hurting and cramping pretty bad when she would go to the bathroom and has been having quite a bit of blood in her stool. We took her to our GP and then to a specialist last week. She is scheduled to have a colonoscopy tomorrow at 3:00 pm. She is only allowed liquids today and tomorrow and has to start the dreaded medicine to clean out her system starting at 5:00 pm today. If you have had a colonoscopy you know the medicine is the worst part of the whole thing!!! The clear liquid diet will be no fun for her either!!! I know the symptoms she is having can be a sign of something as simple as hemorrhoids or it can be a sign of something much more serious. Please pray that God's will will be done and His grace will be sufficient for our family. I Thank-You ahead of time!!!! I will let you know the results as soon as I can tomorrow evening.

Debbie,
Let us know the results with Punky.
I just got back from Atlanta with Cathy. She had surgery on her right eye Monday.
She is doing really well. Hopefully this will
stop the eye disease she has. They go in and scrape the cornea and then put vitamin drops in and use a laser light shining into the cornea. She is in a clinical trial at the Woolfson Eye Institute. There was a teenager on the Today Show a couple of weeks ago and had it done. The procedure was a little different but was successful for him. It was done I think in California. I take her back to Atlanta Friday and then again next week.
Love,
Karen
