David Sullivan’s nephew, Tyler Sullivan, went home last week, after having had 2 surgeries at UAB and spending the last few weeks there and at Spain. He went home with a pic line so that he could continue to get antibiotics. He will have the bone flap that was taken out a few weeks ago, replaced in his head around the end of June.

It will all be done in Birmingham. The family asked that we please continue to pray for her continued healing and the upcoming treatments.
Hilda Johnson has been suffering with a recurrence of trigeminal neuralgia pain and high fever. Fever is under control and the nerve has calmed down some so she is feeling better. She saw her Dr. last week and he increased her meds to relax the nerve and gave her some steroids for the inflammation. She saw a Rheumatologist this week, because the blood work her Dr. did showed that her inflammation level was high. She is waiting on results from tests.
