Update on Fr. Nigel 12:35 PM
Fr. Nigel has been given the green flag by his doctor to go home on Wednesday 12/23. He will have to return to the hospital after the holidays for some minor surgery concerning the bedsore, but then home for good, God willing. He is still experiencing a good deal of pain from the bedsore. He had his trach capped and is receiving a very small amount of oxygen from a small tube that goes under his nose. THANK YOU LORD!!! With his trach capped, he is able to speak in full sentences again, but he still gets a bit winded trying to talk at any length. His lungs need to continue to build up and heal. He has been walking more and more every day, but he is still experiencing some slight dizziness off and on.
Please Pray For:
Healing of the bedsore and relief from the pain that it is causing
Strength for all of his muscles, especially for his leg muscles
Healing and rejuvenation of his lungs
Healing of the dizziness when he stands
Strength, stamina and peace for Lynn as she prepares for Fr. Nigel’s homecoming
Please give PRAISE and THANKS to our Lord for the healing that has taken place and for the healing to come. Our God listens to our prayers and as He did for St. Thomas, He relieves us of any doubts that we may have.
The following message has been sent by Fr. Nigel’s family in England to all the wonderful prayer warriors throughout the world:
Dear Beth and All, This is to greet you at the beginning of Christmas Week and then into the Blessed Day. David and I send you all Greetings for a very God-filled and therefore Joyous Season. We particularly thank you Beth and the Bissells and all the faithful “Prayers” who have stood by our son Nigel and dear Lynn through all these long and difficult weeks. What incredible fruit the prayers have brought forth – how our Lord has Blessed them – we are very mindful of His Love and Blessing. Ups and downs there have been – and may continue — BUT GOD IS IN CHARGE and that is our great comfort and strength. THANK YOU ALL. With our most sincere Love. David and Jean Mumford and Family.
