Update

I thought I would post an update about my sister. Her cath yesterday did not bring the best news. Mary has a 60-80% blockage in her coronary artery. Because of the location, she is going to require bypass surgery. While they are in, they will also replace her valve, which as I said before, is bicuspid (two openings) rather than tricuspid (three openings). Please pray for her and for her husband and 7 children (ages 22-9) as they walk this journey. Please also pray for her doctors that they treat her with knowledge strength, wisdom and steady hands. Her surgery is on December 14.

Yes, I will pray. I'll be praying that day for my youngest boy who is having blood come from his privates . . . they'll be going in the uncomfortable direction and also doing an ultrasound that day. They reckon he's not got anything serious, but they have to look deeper to see if there's an injury or something . . . and I'm nervous about what they'll find . . . yet, YET we must put all our trust in Our Heavenly Father, Whom I know by Faith will never leave us nor forsake us. His mercy is endless and supreme.

Sorry I missed this yesterday. Of course I will be remembering her also. Asking God to give the surgeons wisdom and to guide their hands during this time.
