Prayers For Ina

Please keep our classmate, Ina Lott Whittington in your prayers.  She is seeing a hip specialist at the University Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC) today.  Her surgeon who did her last two replacements last year cannot help her anymore and has referred her to UMMC for further medical care.  She will need your ongoing prayers.  I will keep you updated here on her progress and that she will get the medical attention she needs at this time.  

02-04-2018 ~ Ina was seen by a Doctor at UMMC and had an infection in her hip and was put on an antibiotic.  She will return to UMMC for further tests to see if the infection has cleared on February 26th  Her operation has been scheduled for April 11th because her Doctor has a scheduled overseas assignment. Ina is resting at home in bed and can sit up in a wheelchair.  Please continue to keep her in your prayers.  

If you like, you can send a card to cheer her up.  Ina's address is 109 Colonial Drive, Vicksburg, MS  39180  I'm sure she would deeply appreciate it.
