Today I am taking my 78 year old mother to the hospital for emergency surgery. Why are we not there yet you ask? Because she insists on putting some things in order first. She worries about my stepdad, who at 90, is unable to care for himself and has alzheimers. He must recieve insulin shots twice a day and be fed, so she’s concerned about him (even though my husband and I have volunteered to stay with him around the clock). She has two bills lying on her table that she wants to pay “just in case”.

Please pray for her today if you will…her arteries are blocked and she’s going to have stints put in place to help with blood flow…I don’t want there to be a “just in case”…but if there is, I know that she will be in a much more beautiful place.

While you’re at it, pray for me…this 40 year old isn’t quite ready to let her mama go yet.

    I am sorry you and your family are going through this difficult time. Trust that things will work out. I pray that your sweet Mama will be feeling much better soon. (I had two grandparents come through quadrouple bypass surgeries with a new lease on life. Full of energy and feeling much better than before.) Modern medicine is amazing! Hang in there.
    God bless you!

    Was worried when I twittered you and got no response…then I saw Megan’s post. Karen, you and your mom have a lot of people praying…myself and my husband being a couple of them. We love you and pray that the Lord will show His hand in this.
