Waiting and Praying

Could there be anything worse then waiting? Waiting, wondering, surmising, assuming. At times worrying.

My husband's Mother is in the hospital. Although she has not been feeling well for about a month now, everything has unfolded rather quickly in the last 48 hours. A sudden, almost 8 hour surgery to remove 3 lesions growing on her cerebellum last night. She has been through a lot these past days. And now we all wait.

We haven't been able to see her. She is in the Neuroscience ICU and they are trying desperately to protect her from infection. Back in 2008 Mom was diagnosed with Stage 4 ovarian cancer. She fought it hard and has been in remission since then. It looks like she may have another fight on her hands.

At a time where many things are unknown, when we don't even know hour to hour what obstacle she may face or what positive progress she may have made, we are thankful to have the comfort and peace that only God can give. Peace that surpasses all understanding. That we trust in "Jehova Rophe"- our healer - and ask Him to intercede. "The Great Physician", Jesus, is at work! Although we cannot know what lies ahead for her, we know that He does, and we try to find comfort in that.

Would you please be in prayer for her? For her husband and children and grandchildren, too. We would appreciate that very much!

Christy, I am so sorry that you all are going through this. It's hard to watch your loved one suffer so. I understand. I have been praying for Mrs. Willard. Thanks for updating when you can.
