I got a call from the hospital this morning–not the call I’ve been dreading–asking my consent for another procedure for Aunt Joan, a special IV line to get the antibiotics to where they have to be. Which means she’s still hanging in there, we haven’t lost her yet. It came as a great relief to me. The nursing home also called, just to tell me they’re set up to take her back when she’s ready. More relief–although she’s by no means out of the woods yet, and she still needs our prayers.
My aunts were world travelers way back when, before there were passenger jets and only a very few people did this. Joan went just about everywhere. I wonder now if her travels served to strengthen her constitution. Who knows?
One thing I think I do know, one thing I think I can say with confidence: Prayer works. I’m pretty sure we all know that–I mean, after all, that’s why I take prayer requests and post them here.
Please continue your prayers on our behalf. O Lord our God, thank you for staying with us and for upholding us so far. We know that your will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven. In Jesus’ name, amen.
