Pray for Laurie's Dad

Hey!

This is Kelly and Laurie asked me to update her blog.

Her dad had a heart attack Saturday night and this is what she wanted to share:

He had a heart attack saturday night around 10. He just thought it was heart burn. Mama insisted he go to hospital. The doctor on call was great! Told him he was having heart attack. They gave him a clot busted and morphine. They got him stabalized enough to air lift him to Little Rock. The helicopter could not take off due to stormy weather. He went by ambulence. My mom called me at 11:50. Steve was out of town. The Lord worked it out because I had good friends from Little Rock staying with me. He has a broken ankle on top of everything else. He broke his ankle on tuesday morning on a walk with my mom. He would not go to the dr. He did not realize it was broken until Sunday morning. He will probably have bypass surgery on wednesday morning. He needs several bypasses and has a 95% blockage. The doctors are waiting on his blood to be free of the clot busted. They also want his heart to heal. A big concern is for his ankle to get fixed. We are waiting on a Orth surgeon to see it. He has to be able to move around after his surgery and right now he can't put pressure on it.

Laurie is in Little Rock with her parents. Please pray for she and her mother and for her dad especially.

She also said thank you for being so kind and helpful and for praying!

Laurie, my thoughts and prayers are with you all. My dad had a very similar episode himself. That was 14 years ago. He underwent quadruple bypass. It was a slow recovery, but very successful. My dad is now 83, and it never really slowed him down. Good luck to you all.

Praying for you Laurie and for your family. It is so hard to help your parents when they are sick when you still have little ones at home. Prayers for your girls that they are not frightened.

Laurie in SC said…
Laurie, heard about your daddy. I am so so sorry for all your family and esp your dad is going through right now. I have been there, friend. I have been with my dad through 2 heart bypass operations (17 ys apart), the first a quadruple, the second a triple. So I know how hard it is. BTW, he is still ticking along! It's been 5 ys, almost 6 since his 2nd bypass. Please know you and your family are HEAVY on my heart and also in my thoughts and prayers during this time. Lean on God - He will carry you, as you know. Your precious daddy is well on his way to being HEALTHIER - praise God for that! You will get through the next few days, just hold on. You can do it! Praying for you in SC!!!!
Much love,
Laurie

Lord just place your healing hands on the surgeons who help Laurie's Dad. Guide them to help heal him along with your mercy. I pray for her Mom and for all the children and the entire family. Lord give them a peace and comfort knowing you will not leave them through whatever is needed to endure this time. Lord just be with Laurie's dad and heal his heart and ankle. We pray in your most precious name and ask for you to forgive us daily and be with us each step of or way. In Christ holy name, AMEN

Complicated

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chu

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
