Mama ER has landed
Mama ER will have heart surgery from 12:30 p.m. to around 4:30 p.m. Friday. Going to be with her in the morning, then I'm going to work for a couple of hours rather than just sit around and worry, then I'll go back to the hospital.
(Exact times provided for those to whom "intercessory prayer" means something. As usual, rosaries, good karma, soft-and-squishy high-church prayers, holy-rolling pew-jumping praying in tongues, neo-hippy vibes and happy-happy thoughts cheerfully accepted.)
Repeat: Mama ER has landed, at the hospital here, 180 miles from where she started, about three hours faster than I figured it'd take, considering.
The weather outside is -- well, it's frightful.
Brudder ER reports her "nervous as a wreck" -- from being in an ambulance. Said she couldn't tell the roads were slick.
Off to see her now.
go with God!
And an Official Prayer Request posted at my place.
If you and I agree about nothing else, we agree on the subject of God's Grace, and on his ability to ease suffering (both physical and emotional) and on His willingness to answer heart-felt Prayer.
God Bless you and your whole Family in this troubling time, ER.
My heart goes out to you, and my Prayers go out on your behalf.
God be with you and yours.
Be with ER also. May he receive some comfort and peace also, and whatever else he needs.
Be with the doctors to be able to perform their job.
In Jesus' name. Amen
Thank you all.
I'll keep ya'll in my prayers. Be careful on the roads out there.
