   Sarah Britton (DC-Band): My Grandpa, Art Helmlinger, had open heart surgery last month. He
    started having seizures last week and is hospitalized now. The doctors think that he has
    encephalitis or an infection in the brain. They are waiting for the seizures to stop and then they
    will do a spinal tap. Please pray that it is treatable. It is frustrating because he is not in his
    hospital with doctors that know him and he isn’t allowed to be transferred until he is stable and
    that probably isn’t going to happen. He also doesn’t know the Lord, so please keep him and my
    family in your prayers. (11/8)

    and continued healing. (11/28)

    tumors from his spine. The tumors are benign (praise God), but they are pushing his spinal cord
    out of his spine at T-1 and it is crucial to have them removed to prevent paralysis. The surgery is
    very precise and recovery time is four weeks or more. Both Joe and his wife, Liz Augustus,
    attended DC in the mid-90’s (Liz graduated in 1996). Pray for a successful surgery, healing, and
    calming of nerves. (11/14)

       that showed a shadow in the bottom of her heart. The doctors want to do another test but she
       does not want another test. The doctors think it is a blood clot and she is endanger of having a
       stroke. If she continues to refuse the test they will put her on Coumadin (blood thinner). Pray
       that my father-in-law, John, can convince her to have the test and be sure. Thanks for your
       prayers. (11/30)
    - Praise the Lord my mother-in-law agreed to the test and they did not find any blood clots in
       her heart. She passed her stressed test and does not need any other medications. She was able
       to go home without any restrictions. (12/1)
