Three Prayer Requests

I have three prayer requests for ya'll...

First, an older lady we know fell and broke her wrist - it will require surgery. Please pray for her to heal fully and quickly.

Secondly, a younger brother of one of my friends was working on a fence with a hammer and a chip of metal from the hammer hit his retina, which required surgery (which ended up lasting for 6 1/2 hours!).  If he gets no infection in his eye then he will probably have only a blind spot in the middle of his eye, instead of going completely blind (if he gets an infection). So please pray for him to not get infection in his eye, and for him to retain as much vision as possible.

And, thirdly, a family that we are friends with just had one of their sons, who has been a missionary in Ghana for the past few years, came back.  But he had typhoid fever.  He was feeling much better earlier this week, but suddenly took a turn for the worse and ended up in the ER, but his body was rejecting medications and he was getting worse.

Well, today there was an update via email.

"[He] has confirmed malaria and typhoid. Low bp, low body temp, and very dehydrated, and is now in ICU with a feeding tube and IVs. He's totally unresponsive, won't wake up or squeeze their hand. Didn't even flinch when they iced his body."  

PLEASE, PLEASE pray for him and his family!!!!
