Please pray for John, Sarah, and Ellie

Stan and Pat have been in Orlando all night with their son and daughter-in-law John and Sarah at Arnold Palmer Hospital because John and Sarah's seven-year-old daughter, Ellie is not well.

She's been feeling poorly for a couple of weeks, and throughout yesterday just lost the vision in her left eye. The doctors have discovered a mass behind her nose near the frontal lobe of her brain. The mass is not in an operable place. The location of the mass, near her optic nerve, has caused the blindness in one eye. They are thankful that Ellie does not feel any pain from the mass.

The family is praying that a biopsy can be performed today to determine if the mass in cancerous. Although it's not operable, it may respond to drug therapy. They are also praying that a bone scan can be done soon to rule out other problems.

Please pray for the family during this situation, and also that John will be able to keep up with his work (landscaping).

Stan has asked that we hold our calls and instead contact him via email as needed. They are grateful for your prayers.
