Surgeries

Lots going on…as I guess is true everywhere. My daughter-in-law Grace is recovering well from her surgery to relieve varicose veins. We’re so thankful for that! Last week a dear friend (with 4 young sons) was diagnosed with M.S. and ended up in the hospital for several days. She’s coming home today, but what a shock and sorrow! Another girl friend ended up in the hospital last week after a lot of neck/head pain and various symptoms. It turned out that she had a stroke, although the doctor believes she’s young enough to make a full recovery. I’m going over tomorrow to help out and take dinner to her family.  Over the weekend one of Brianna’s younger sisters got married in a very joyful wedding. However, one of Brianna’s sister-in-laws gave birth to a beautiful little girl, Illianna, who has a heart defect that will result in the baby’s dying unless there can be a successful surgery tomorrow that saves her life. Will you pray with me for a successful surgery? Thanks!

“For this child I prayed; and the LORD hath given me my petition which I asked of him” (I Samuel 1:27)

Today the first half of the verse is true, may the second be true tomorrow!

  1. Thank you for your prayers! The surgery will begin in about 10 minutes. I am also praying for you too, dear sisters! Sarah, I’m so glad you have hot water now! 🙂 My girlfriend who had the stroke is from South Korea, and she has three S. Korean children in her home who are in the U.S. to go to school. I wonder if your paths will cross anywhere!
