Prayer Request For Jessi

This is one of those posts you never want to write, but thankfully there's a community we can reach out to in these types of situations. Thank you everyone for your prayers.

Today Jessi was diagnosed with two blood clots in her right calf. Thankfully, they're small and not at risk to move and become bigger issues, but it's still a concern. Jessi will be starting treatment tomorrow which is supposed to last 6 months. Hopefully, by the end of that time they'll be gone and Jessi will be back to normal. We're still learning a lot about the implications and this will probably result in life-style changes.

We were tipped off to something being up when Jessi's right leg was in constant pain with no physical difference between it and the left leg. According to Jessi, it feels like a muscle ache that gets worse when iced or stretched. We decide to see the doctor and it turns out that was a smart decision.

Again, thank you for your prayers and we'll keep you posted on what happens.


  1. I'm sorry to hear your scary news, but praise GOD that you were able to get it checked out and dealt with quickly!! Jessi will definitely be in our prayers.

  2. Sorry you are going through this. We will be keeping you in our prayers and checking for updates.

  3. Oh my...difficult times for sure. We will be praying for Jessi's recovery and for getting back to life as usual. It is hard to "take it easy" when teaching!

  4. Thank you all for your concern and prayers. James and I are so grateful to have good friends to keep us in prayer. We will try to update so you know what is going on.
