Please Pray!!!

Hi All,

We are just back from an amazing training camp in Death Valley where we had 20 Marathon des Sables entrants for 2008..what a gas! We will post some photos this week.

To all of you...

My father David will undergo a very serious and risky operation on Wednesday, kickoff at 9:00 a.m. He will have his Aorta and a Renal Artery repaired to remove the threat of a Pararenal Aneurysm that has dramatically grown in size and now measures 6.8cm x 5.9cm. Currently he has one kidney that has ceased to function and the good kidney is down to less than 50% function. Once this high risk surgery is done, he will certainly be supported through kidney dialysis for the rest of his life.

Please pray for the surgeon’s steady hand and pray that it will be guided by the merciful hand of God. We need all the positive energy and Heaven sent prayers that you can send out into the world. Please pray that my Dad awakens from this surgery, and pray for his spirit to fight toward a successful recovery We need your help!

Thank you for your love and support

Lisa
