surgery update

 

 

 

I mentioned in my prayer request that my grandmother was given the choice to go home, but with grave warnings from the doctor that she may very well have a heart attack at home with the condition they found her heart. My grandmother’s surgery was scheduled for 7:30 this morning and at 5 am, she has a mild heart attack while brushing her teeth. Praise the Lord for the good fortune to be in the hospital at this time! If she had been at home without prompt medical attention, it is very likely she would not have made it through. Medical staff were able to stabilize her blood pressure, which had dropped to dangerously low levels, and after some time of debate, decided to continue on with the surgery at 8 am.

My precious grandmother has been in surgery for more than 5 hours at this point. The doctors predicted it would take approximately 5-7 hours for the porcine {pig} valve replacement, repairing a second valve, and then finally doing a triple bypass. They have updated the family almost every hour with encouraging progress.

So much work a some on such a tiny, delicate organ, in such a tiny, delicate woman.

If you feel so inclined, please pray or continue prayers for my grandmother at this time.

I am so appreciative to those who have been flooding the gates of heaven with our requests and for the sweet words of encouragement on my last post.

Thank you!

Our Wedding 502

“Have you not known? Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He does not faint or grow weary;
his understanding is unsearchable.
He gives power to the faint,
and to him who has no might he increases strength.
Even youths shall faint and be weary,
and young men shall fall exhausted;
but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run and not be
weary;
they shall walk and not faint.”

Isaiah 40:28-31
