Urgent Prayer Request - Linda Morishita

Our sister in Christ, Linda Morishita is at Straub Hospital. She is a diabetic and has been going thru self-administered dialysis. She has a severe infection at the portal site. She's in extreme pain but because it involves her kidneys, they cannot give her anything for pain. Tomorrow morning, they will do surgery. At this point, her health is life threatening.

Please include her in your prayers! She has been coming to NHDH since 2006 (originally from NHO.) I've known her for over 30 years as we worked together at Hawaiian Telcom. She has always been an active volunteer for our India Mission fundraisers.

Thank you!

ps.... she went into surgery around noon today. I just called and she's still in surgery.


  1. Thanks, Bo, for letting us know. We are praying.

  2. Went to see Linda today. She was in surgery for most of yesterday afternoon. What they thought was an infection at the portal site (which would have been very bad), turned out to be something totally different. Will leave out the details as some may be squeamish. They closed up the portal in her peritoneum and will let it heal. In the meantime, she will have to have blood dialysis (she will go to the dialysis center every other day... takes about 3 hours). Once she has healed completely, they will do another port into her peritoneum. That way she can once more do her own dialysis. Linda has no doubt that it was the Lord's doing!

    She called me at about 4pm this afternoon to tell me she's being released from the hospital!

    Following is praise prayer from Erin Cavaco: Thank you Lord for touching your daughter, Linda & bringing her safely out of surgery & for everyone who held her up in prayer. Please continue to strengthen her & restore her health. Heal her from the top of her head to the bottom of her feet.

  3. Praise God for answering our prayers.
    All glory to God.
