Surgery for Katie

We have good news! We finally have a date for Katie's Decompression surgery! It is scheduled for December 1, 2014. We would like for you to join us in prayer as we prepare. Due to financial burden of a chronic illness we really need help to come up with the money for the surgery COPAY, lodging and miscellaneous expenses associated to surgery. We will be traveling out of town for the surgery. Surgery will take 3-5 hours and and Katie will be in ICU for 3-4 days and the hospital an additional 4-5 days. We thank you for all our your support over the past year and a half! We look forward to this surgery- we know it is not a cure- but we are HOPEful for relief.
