Updating Again!

I just came from the hospital and visiting my sister. It was so good to sit and talk to her! (Actually, our first real conversation was on Friday. I can't tell you how happy it made me to be able to talk to Mary again. It's had been a long week!). She looked good, but really tired. I was able to go for a short walk with her as well while I was there. I am continued to be amazed by my sister's strength and courage through this whole process.

She has one more hurdle to cross before coming home. My sister is having surgery tomorrow to have a pacemaker put in. He heart just has not returned to a normal rhythm, and at this point, it is unlikely that it ever would. She had some scary moments the other day when they tested it, and she hopes to not go through that again. Please continue the prayers for her tomorrow, and I will update when I know something.

Thanks for all of the prayers and encouragement!
