SURGERY UPDATE......

HELLO FRIENDS, 
THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR THE COMMENTS, PRAYERS AND KEEPING US NEAR YOUR HEARTS.  BRIAN MADE IT THROUGH THE SURGERY, PRAISE THE LORD!  IT WAS A VERY LONG DAY.  WE ARRIVED AT 5:30 AM AND THEY TOOK HIM TO THE OR AT 7:30.  THE SURGERY STARTED AT 11:00 AM CENTRAL AND WE DIDN’T SEE HIM UNTIL MIDNIGHT IN THE ICU.  HE IS SLOWLY WAKING UP TODAY.  HE IS NOT COMMUNICATING YET.  THEY ARE TAKING HIM FOR AN MRI THIS AFTERNOON AS HE IS NOT MOVING HIS LOWER EXTREMITIES YET.  PLEASE PRAY THERE IS NO PERMANENT PARALYSIS.  WE ARE TIRED BUT DOING FINE.  IT’S SO HARD TO SEE MY BELOVED HUSBAND HAVE TO GO THROUGH THIS BUT WE KNOW THE MANY PRAYERS GOING UP FOR US ARE SUSTAINING US AND HOLDING US UP.  BLESSINGS FOR EACH ONE OF YOU FOR CARING.  BRIAN, MYSELF, OUR SON AND DIL APPRECIATE IT MORE THAN YOU WILL EVER KNOW.  HUGS TO EACH OF YOU.  LORI

TO ALL PRAYER WARRIORS......


MY HUBBY BRIAN AND I WOULD
ASK AN INTEREST IN YOUR PRAYERS
FOR HIS UPCOMING SURGERY THIS
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13TH AT 
THE UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN
HOSPITAL IN MADISON, WI AND 
HIS RECOVERY.

SOME OF YOU KNOW THAT FIVE YEARS
AGO BRIAN HAD EMERGENCY SURGERY
FOR AN ASCENDING AORTIC DISSECTION.
WE WERE SO BLESSED THAT HE MADE
IT THROUGH THAT SURGERY AND HAS
BEEN DOING WELL BUT AT THE SAME
TIME THAT DISSECTION HAPPENED 
HE ALSO HAD A DESCENDING ONE.
THEY HAVE BEEN KEEPING AN EYE ON
IT AND IT'S TIME WE HAVE TO REPAIR IT.
THIS ISN'T A ROAD WE WANTED TO 
WALK AGAIN BUT WE KNOW CHRIST JESUS
IS WALKING BESIDE US ALL THE WAY.
THIS WILL BE A VERY MAJOR SURGERY
AND WE WILL BE THERE ABOUT TWO 
WEEKS IF ALL GOES WELL.

HE HAS TO BE AT THE HOSPITAL BY 5:30
AM CENTRAL TIME ON FRIDAY AND IT
WILL BE A VERY LONG DAY.  A BIG
RISK IS SPINAL CORD PARALYSIS.  WE WOULD
ASK YOU TO GUIDE THE SURGEON DR. ACHER
AND HIS TEAM AND THAT THE LORD 
WOULD GO BEFORE US AND PREPARE THE WAY.
HE HAS BLESSED US SO RICHLY AND WE PRAISE HIM
FOR HIS TENDER MERCY.  WE BELIEVE IN THE 
POWER OF PRAYER.  WE 
PRAY THERE WILL BE NO
COMPLICATIONS.  WE THANK YOU IN ADVANCE
FOR ALL OF YOUR PRAYERS.  I'LL POST HERE 
WHEN I'M ABLE TO GIVE AN UPDATE.
THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR 
HEARTS MY FRIENDS AND FOLLOWERS.

I WILL BE ABLE TO EMAIL ANY E~PATTERNS ORDERED
BUT ANY PURCHASES OF ITEMS TO BE SHIPPED
WILL WAIT UNTIL WE RETURN.  THANK YOU SO MUCH.

MAY GOD BLESS AND KEEP YOU......LORI
