Update on Victor Payton from Gwendolyn Payton: Victor is more stable today. They don’t have a bed in Atlanta. Our son spoke with the doctors here and he feels confident that they have a good plan of treatment that will hopefully halt Victor’s decline in a few days! Thank you for your continued prayers.
Update on Marie Cooper’s grandson from Marie: I am so grateful for my sisters and brothers prayers. His doctor is going to try an oral medication first instead of surgery. The second sonogram determined he has a mild case of pyloric stenosis and we are hoping he grows out of it. Please continue to pray for both Dalton and his mother Kelia. The next appointment is Sept. 22nd to see if the meds are working.
