Ticker Trouble

Its been quiet here on the blog as I have been focused on thoughts elsewhere. 


We've had an adventure and it will continue on through the coming weeks.

If you are inclined to prayer, I would love you to lift up my mom and dad (Karen and Fil.)


My mom found out last week that she will need open-heart surgery. 

Through a series of events this surgery will most likely happened sooner than originally scheduled.
We are still awaiting news on the specifics. The good news is that at the moment she is in a top-rate hospital; she is in a really good place.

I am scheduled (based on original surgery dates) to fly out on Saturday, so in the meantime I am planning and cooking and cleaning and preparing things so The Mister can hold-the-fort while I'm away. Its likely the blog will be quiet this week...but I'll update through the comments on this post for those who have asked to be in-the-know.  


I know she is going to pull through like a champ, but I also know that she appreciates all who are praying on her behalf. 

xoxo

Your mom, your dad, and all the rest of the family will stay in my prayers, Kellie.

And I'd be happy to drop a freezer-friendly meal by their house if that would be helpful. Just say the word...(and an address might help, too).

According to your comment update, as I type she is surgery...
Heavenly Father may your healing hands be right there with the surgeons hands.
