Pray Request for this Family

This is what is close to my heart this morning.

Please pray for this Family. Jon is one of the Aviation professors at the University. He is one of my husband's professors.

The mom, Elizabeth, is in Baylor Medical in Dallas. She was preganant with baby #4 (about 6 months along), and was diagnosed with lung cancer. They did surgery yesterday morning to remove part of her lung and then last night, she went into cardiac arrest. Labor and delivery was on hand and took the baby, Megan - 2 1/2 lbs - but Elizabeth is not doing well. She is currently on a heart and lung machine. They’ve since taken Elizabeth off of the heart and lung machine and placed a device in her chest to assist the heart in pumping her blood. Megan quit breathing at some point when she was born but the doctors quickly got her breathing again. She is now breathing on her own. Jon and Elizabeth have been through a whole lot in the last two weeks so be in a spirit of prayer for them both throughout the day. Prayer works!

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us…” Ephesians 3:20
