Thank you all

Thank you everyone for praying and thinking of Karen today.  It was a very long day.  We were at the hospital before 5:00 a.m. and didn't get home until 8:45 tonight.  This was after a long night of tornado warnings and severe thunderstorms so needless to say, everyone is exhausted.

Karen is now in ICU and doing as well as can be expected.  Her husband is staying with her all night while I brought Mom home to get some rest.  Karen's heart is weaker than they thought and we don't know what the future has in store, but she was awake before we left.  It's so hard to see someone like that with all the tubes, etc.  

We would appreciate continued prayers for her recovery.

And now my friends, I'm off to bed.  We need to be back at the hospital bright and early tomorrow,

Blessings,
Betsy

  2. Hullo dear Betsy... praying for you and most of all your darling sis. I remember well when mum was in icu after a major op so take heart dear one those tubes are life saving and a means to an end. It will be well soon in Gods safe hands and wise way.
    He knows her heart best and all things, and moves mountains when we rest in Him for it. So we wait pray and plead for His everlasting mercy to be manifest together. May His name be glorified in this time. Hugs Shaz in Oz.x

  10. Dear Betsy, I am just now getting caught up on your blog. Had to read back a ways to figure out what is wrong with Karen and what happened when you hit your head. Gosh, I am glad to know that you are much better and able to be there for your MIL. Karen is so young to be having bypass. We just never know. My dad had it when he was 45 which is why he always told me to check my cholesterol, etc. Heart disease runs in his side of the family. All of his brothers and sisters had heart surgery except one. Sending healing wishes to Karen.

    I enjoyed seeing all the beautiful crochet and embroidery and everything you else made for your mom. They certainly are more than just humble gifts. They are absolutely incredible and beautiful and made with love.

    Sending big hugs your way. Take care, Tammy
