Default Prayers for Tim

Tim Murphy said I could post the following information.

Tim has been diagnosed with cancer of the esophagus. It is very early stage and it is of a type that can be surgically removed. Other than that, his physician says he is in perfect health, which bodes well.

I'll keep you posted as more is known. In the meantime, all prayers are more than welcome.

I don't usually pray, but Tim's religious fervour has always been compelling,
so I'll do so now.

Best wishes to Tim for a good surgeon and a full recovery. I'm five years cancer-free post-surgery, myself, so my thoughts are with him now.
