I recently asked for prayers for Bruce.
I can now report that Bruce passed away at 11am yesterday, Sydney time. It was the clot on his lung that mercifully killed him not the fungus which had attacked his sinuses, destroyed his eyesight and was attacking his brain.
My sister and her friend visited him again last Sunday and think he may have recognised them. Prayers for his older brother Malcolm who was never the practical one, which exasperated Bruce, and did not expect to be the one left to deal with estates etc.
I also asked for prayers for my sister and her operation to remove her thyroid. Apparently it was successful and the pathology found a small 4mm cancer, fully removed, so it was just as well she decided on the operation rather than less invasive treatment.
I am worried that, more than 10 days later, her voice is still very hoarse. She is seeing the specialist today.
