Barb’s Surgery Update

November 19, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Dear Friends,

For some reason, unknown to us, but not to God, Barb did not have her surgery Wednesday, as scheduled.

About 4:00 AM, as she was getting ready to go to the hospital, she had a TIA, or mini-stroke. We went to the hospital and found out that the surgery would be delayed a couple of hours anyway due to an emergency that took the O.R. and after telling about her earlier experience, a CAT scan and tests were quickly set up. Following a consultation, doctors decided the surgery would be too great a risk, and later in the afternoon she was sent home with an Rx for Lovenox, a blood thinner. The surgeon will see her on Tuesday, November 23rd, and perhaps reschedule surgery.

God does not make mistakes! Meanwhile we have been enjoying the time with our four daughters together! Barb considers this a gift from the Lord, because she would probably have been sedated instead. The girls got busy and prepared a full Thanksgiving dinner which we enjoyed today (Friday) together …truly a time of “thanks-giving!”

We are trusting our sovereign Lord in all of this! We are truly grateful for your faithful prayers for each step of the past few days and appreciate your continued prayers as He directs the future days, for His glory! Psalm 17:5 “Hold up my goings in Thy paths, that my footsteps slip not.” Psalm 17:8 “Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of Thy wings…”

We will keep in touch…

By His Grace,

Barb and Ray
II Timothy 1:12
