Please keep my husband...

...in your prayers. There was an older lady in his life named Mrs. Christmas. She is actually a friend of his Mom's but he was closer to her. She had cancer and was in remission. Mama Christmas had to have surgery about a week ago but she was on the mend and scheduled to go home when she took a turn for the worse. John got the call last night, so he went to the hospital today and spent a few hours talking to and praying with her. At first she wasn't responsive but she eventually acknowledged that she knew who he was with a series of hand and eye signals. He came home to eat dinner with his family and had been here for about 10 minutes when he got the call that she has passed away. I'm so grateful that he got to spend a significant amount of time with her before she left us but I'm SOOO grateful that he wasn't THERE when she left us. He's hurting and I just ask that you lift him, as well as her blood relatives up in prayer.
