Update on Lacie Stevens
Rev. Mike Palmer, District Superintendent
The district office just received word that Lacie did come through surgery this morning and the new drain was successful. The pressure in her inner cranial cavity dropped by half as soon as the new shunt was in place. The doctors are much more optimistic at this point. Please continue to keep her, her parents, and Mike and Pat in your prayers.
The pastors who attended the Spring Advance this past week know about the urgent prayer request for Mike and Pat Morrison’s (Pastor, St. Louis South County) 16 year-old niece, Lacie Stevens. She has been living with them the past three months, but on Monday she was diagnosis with a brain tumor. She had surgery on Wednesday, at which time the doctors were able to remove about 90% of the tumor and things were looking better for her. However, she has taken a dramatic turn for the worse today and Pat and Mike are headed back to the hospital, because the doctors may have to go back in and perform another surgery to relieve the pressure in her skull from the bleeding. They are not able to give her any more medication as she is maxed out at the current time. She is a very, very sick young lady right now and desperately needs God’s healing touch.
