Mom Update and Prayer

Dear Friends/Family,

My Mother is being discharged from the hospital tomorrow. Yeah, Jesus!!! I am thankful that she will be returning home to my Dad. He does miss his other half!!!

I am thankful for the doctors and nurses who once again cared for Mom. Thank you, Jesus, for those who use their lives to serve others!!!

I am thankful that Mom was on the cardiac monitoring floor, where they were able to find the Mom's heart was not staying in a normal rate. She is now on a new medication to control to the rate.

I was especially thankful the floor Mom was on was managed by Nurse Anne. We graduated from nursing school together, many, many years ago. ;)

Please continue to pray for resolution of Mom's leg infection. It is not responding as quickly to the IV antibiotics as previously. She will be discharged on IV antibiotics, so please pray for my Dad and me as we will be the ones responsible for their administration. I live about 20 minutes away from my parents and the antibiotics will be given at least twice a day.

You all are appreciated and loved. Thanks for your prayers. I know I can't effectively serve without God's help!!!

Yes I will also be praying for you. I am sure you will be extra busy and torn between caring for your family and your mom. May God give you His strength and encouragement each day.
And I will pray for your mom's leg infection to heal....in the name of Jesus!

Hope all else is well! :)
