Sneaky Christians

Post by FredS » Mon Jan 13, 2020 5:11 pm

Mrs FredS' best friend in CO had a tumor on her liver. At first they (the doctors) thought it could be easily treated with drugs. Then they had second thoughts and decided surgery to remove part of the liver was the best course. That happened early last week. After the operation they told her she'd require a second operation in a couple weeks. Then at the end of the week they called to say everything was fine! Benign tumor. No treatment needed.

Mrs FredS told her "Well, miracles do happen you know."
Sherrie (not a believer) looked her square in the eyes and said "You had people praying for me, didn't you?"

The docs have flip flopped on this a couple times so who knows what may happen next, but right now it looks like smooth sailing ahead.

Pesky prayers.

Grateful.

I know people who have given plants to secular friends in the hospital -- with a Miraculous Medal buried in the potting soil.

You have to keep your eye on those Christians all the time.
