Prayer request for a classmate

Some of you know about the tough time our classmate Lynne has had the last decade. After Ed's death, she twice faced cancer surgery and was successful in that battle. She didn't give up and is a real fighter. However, the last few years she's had mysterious vomiting episodes (sorry if this sounds unpleasant, but I don't know how else to explain it) which are becoming more frequent requiring trips to the ER, bed rest, and even sleeping sitting up. Obviously, enjoying a good meal is out of the question. First they told her it was the flu, then the adhesions from her surgeries, and now she's going to get another opinion. If you've ever watched Lynne on one of her walks (I can't keep up), you know she loves the out-of-doors, being active, helping others, and of course, campaigning with her beloved party during election periods. So this baffling condition isn't easy to live with for someone who wants to be walking the dog and smelling the flowers (soon).

So, I'm asking all the classmates who might be tuning in, to send up a few prayers in the next few days--first for the doctors that they will be able to determine the problem, then for Lynne's condition that it will settle down enough for her to get her strength back with some food and rest, and of course, for healing.

Glad to hear she is better. She flew by with the dog just this past week. Can't keep a good gal down,at least not for long. Good for her.She's got the best legs for an old gal.
