Please pray that Naíme Phillips will be able to breathe independently without needing to have a tracheostomy (opening in her throat). She is at home in Vilafranca, near Barcelona and will be having a time of prayer on zoom tomorrow at 1:00 PM California time. Several pastors who know her will pray aloud for God's mercy and healing.

Thank you so much for praying Naíme Phillips through her recovery from the car accident that almost took her life. Pray that the Church in Spain will grow in faith along with her family. Her is her Mom's update on her recent surgery.
Good morning, dears, Naíme underwent surgery this morning. Surgeons have removed fibrous tissue from the trachea that prevented air from passing through. They have also removed some cartilage. They have dilated her trachea with a balloon / balloon. Now Naíme has been piped and referred to the UCI. We have been told that her condition was worse than expected but that they believe she will recover well. If not, they will have to operate again and do a tracheostomy (external opening). Now Naíme rests and we know that she is cared for in very good hands by her God and the health team of this hospital.
Thank you dear friends. I appreciate your affection and signs of love towards us. In our hearts there is a strange mixture of sadness, weariness, gratitude and peace. We go with God ahead.
Love ️ Naíme

Here is an update on how Naíme Phillips is doing.
Hello, family and friends. I hope you are well and healthy. Naíme has been stable these weeks, although her stridor when breathing persists, especially when she exercises. After being physically active, her heart rate goes up quite a bit and her upper chest sinks when she breathes in. The doctors will operate once again. So Naíme will be operated on Tuesday (day 9) to dilate the trachea. She will spend a day in the ICU and if there are no complications she will go into recovery and be there for a few days. We are very comfortable at home but we know that this will be for the best and it is a necessary step.
I thank you very much for your multiple displays of affection. God goes before us, paving the way with his protective hand. I send you my love. Love ️

Hello it's the Dykstra's
Hope you're doing well and your family is safe. Can you please have the care-WOW team pray for Brian and I? I got released from the doctor to return to work on Monday, June 1st. I will be working a long 10:30 to 6:30 shift 40 hours a week I'm very apprehensive about wearing a mask that long as I am a mouth breather and suffer from anxiety and breathing problems.
Brian has still not returned to the car wash as they do not have his full-time position opened up yet for him to return so he will remain on unemployment I would so appreciate it if the care team could pray for us PLEASE ️

Dear brothers and sisters,
Would you please continue to pray for my mom, Carol Kammeyer. It's been a year since she had emergency lung surgery, and at that time was diagnosed with cancer. She has been taking Keytruda treatments every three weeks ever since. The latest MRI showed the many areas of the cancer are holding steady. A week ago she had a bad fall and tore ligaments in her "good" leg. A week later, she still isn't able to put pressure on either leg. Please pray specifically for strength and healing in her leg and for God to continue to hold the cancer from spreading. She consistently tells me how she adores her church family and what you mean to her. I know that God is listening when you talk to Him on her behalf. Thank you for lifting her up in prayer. Terilyn

A hopeful update from Mama Naíme (Phillips):
Dear family and friends,
Naíme is due to have a laryngoscopy on Monday to see her healing has progressed since the last surgery. Doctors have told us that if all goes well, she will likely be discharged on Tuesday. We are very excited but we are cautious.
The doctors will have to give us guidelines of what to do in case of choking or breathing difficulties. She will continue to receive her therapies through the hospital patient portal. One of the purposes of these therapies is to make Naíme achieve a certain autonomy in her daily activities. We have a long way to go and we will need strength for this new reality.
We greatly appreciate your prayers and expressions of support and affection. Thank God for the miracle of life and the way our daughter's neural system is regenerating. How much mercy! With fraternal love,

Here is the latest update on Naíme Phillips' surgery from last week.
Good evening, dear ones.
For the last four days, Naíme has been in the ICU after the intervention she had on Friday. She spent a couple of days wearing a mask through which she breathed heliox (helium and oxygen). Her breathing has improved and her stridor is much less than before. Her voice is hoarse. She has been able to continue eating foods that are easy to chew (which makes her very happy) although she continues to be given fluids by tube.
This morning we have been moved to the main floor, so she resumes her respiratory, speech and physical therapies. The administration of corticosteroids and other medications is also reduced. Her eyesight improves (when she cannot focus well, she closes her left eye and makes a double effort with her right). She is beginning to read on her computer in very large print. She has written me love letters from daughter to mother, in large print which are almost always legible. She doesn't always see the page boundary but we have been told that all of these details are corrected with therapy and consistency. In the area of math she has also surprised us (at a level of third grade, more or less).
Thanks to her smile and her desire to fight, Naíme has been loved by the doctors, therapists and nurses of the ICU and the ward. Many of them have made moving comments to us and we feel extremely loved and cared for by the entire healthcare team ~ and by all of you, for your wishes to be able to help even more. Your prayers sustain us. We are learning to live today (“with its own eagerness”) and not to focus on permanent and irreversible damages, but on the achievements and advances that we have seen since Naíme opened her eyes and clenched her fists when she came out of the coma.
How much compassion of God! Love ️

Naîme Phillips is recovering from surgery to close up gaps in her airway to prevent air from leaking and going where it shouldn't go and complicating her breathing. Please pray for her to heal quickly and well, so she can resume normal breathing, which is difficult for her right now as she heals. Pray also for an end to inflammation in her larynx.
