Prayers Needed

Sunday, November 1, 2009

Well you may have noticed I didn’t post yesterday or today.? I will not be posting for a week or so.? This past Wednesday afternoon I received a call from my sister telling me my mother had been taken to the hospital (Spectrum Heart Center).? She was taken?by ambulance from another hospital because they didn’t have the equipment needed to help her.? She was having chest pains and possible kidney failure.? So needless to say, I have been at the hospital with my Dad every day since then.? My Dad doesn’t like to drive in the rain and he can’t see good at night, so I have been going with him every day.? My Mom has had lots of ultrasounds and x-rays.? Finally, on Friday they did a Stress test checking out her kidneys, which both need stints put in, and then going up to her heart which has 3 blockages.??She needs Open Heart surgery.? We will find out tomorrow when the surgery will be scheduled.? She had a minor heart attack at the hospital Wednesday night after they admitted her but since then she’s been feeling pretty good.? She hates being in the hospital and hates waiting knowing she has to have the Open Heart surgery.? They can’t do the surgery any sooner than Wednesday because they gave her plavix and she has to be off that for at least a week before they can do the surgery.? Prayers for my Mom and Dad would be greatly appreciated as it is going to be a long road of recovery.

I will post when I can but between the hospital, helping my dad and my family I don’t have much time to stamp.?

As far as the Boxes, Bags, Tags and Gift card class goes I will be rescheduling that, please let me know if you would be interested in the class and a day and time of the week that works best for you.? I will try to pick a day and time that works for the majority.? I’m looking after Thanksgiving sometime.

I will still be holding the Stamp A Stack class on Tuesday, November 17 at 10AM or 7PM.? Sign up for that soon.

God Bless,
