Prayer request...

We spent Sunday driving across the state and back home again to visit Chris's Mom at the University of Michigan hospital.



Her surgery is scheduled for 7am on Tuesday. I'm calling on all my prayer warriors. Her valve replacement surgery is a multiple hour surgery. It's complicated and she's been in and out of the hospital and a rehabilitation center since November. She's not a strong woman anymore, but she's tough. The doctors aren't hiding the risk factors from our family and we're all a little scared. We were told this morning that if all goes well, she will be at the University of Michigan Hospital for around a week and then she will go to a rehabilitation center for additional recovery time.

Please pray for a successful surgery and recovery. We also ask for for peace of mind for Nana and my husband's immediate/extended family. Despite our fears, we have the utmost faith and confidence in the medical staff at the University of Michigan hospital.


We love you, Nana.

Kim,
You know you can count on me. May God surround your family with the sanctuary of peace and provide healing hands to the doctors in the operating room and those that will care for her afterwards. Please tell Nana that your blog fan base is rooting for her and praying for her healing. God is in control!
Much love from the Whaley family,
Cindy
