Prayers

I have been meaning to post this, but everything has moved so fast I haven't had a chance. My Aunt Donna was diagnosed with 2 brain tumors last week. She has been in the hospital since the CT Scan and had her surgery today. Praise God that she just got out of a 5 hour surgery and she is TALKING!! They diagnosed it as Astrocytoma and they are going to do radiation treatment. They will be doing a biopsy to see if its malignant, but they know that it originates in the brain and has not metastasized.

The surgery is done, which has been weighing on everyone's mind, but there is still a long road ahead for Donna and Gene. Gene is my mom's brother. Please continue to pray for them, their kids, and all of our family. God says he will not give you more than you can handle, but its kind of like I said to God when I got the stomach virus when I was so sick last March "God, okay, I've had enough, I think this is all I can handle" and sure enough my muscles began to get stronger the next week or two. The Senter family has had quite the tough year, but as I say that, I think, WOW-what an amazing family of God! Thoughout the entire year of events, probably the #1 word said in each situation was/is Prayer. God does answer prayers and he is an awesome God.
