Dear Friends of John,
Several years ago, John was diagnosed with untreatable chronic liver disease. As a result of his illness, he was later diagnosed with liver cancer and told that his only chance at a healthy life was to have a liver transplant. John is currently on the active transplant waiting list at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

I was just released form USA Medical Center, where I was diagnosed with “Spontaneous Bacterial Peritonitis”. This condition is common among people with Stage 4 Liver Disease, such as myself. My doctor, Dr. Philip Henderson, was awesome. He was constantly in touch with Doctors on duty during the weekend and even calling me at 10pm one night.
An aggressive approach was taken because I am so high on the waiting list for liver transplant. The infection needed to be eliminated as quickly as possible.
After 5 days in the hospital, I am convinced that I have gotten all of the mileage I can get out of this liver. A new liver maybe only several weeks away.
Thanks so much for all of your prayers. That is so humbling and means more to me than you know. I love you all.

May The Lord bless you and keep you. May The Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace...as you go through the remaining steps of the transplant process. You and Jenny are loved by many of us at Chickasaw UMC, and our prayers for healing will be many and frequent.
