Update from Claudette Thompson (sister of Juanita Crittenden’s) sent Monday, December 29th: “No lymph/tumor detected. Went from 4 cm to undetected. Doctor says I’m doing perfect. God’s grace…prayers of the righteous availeth much!!! Please share my news with your church family. I know they are praying diligently for me. I’m asking God to end my chemo sessions. The doctor said she will decrease it Thursday – the time and dosage, but I want them to cease. You had to see the look on my doctor’s face. She was in awe. She predicted it would decrease, but not this fast.”

Underwoods: “Please keep The Townsleys in your prayers. Bill had another fall and broke the same hip he was just recovering from. They are not doing surgery at this time, but he is confined to a wheelchair from 6 to 8 weeks to see if the break will heal this way. Kay and Jack have moved in with them again to help.”
