So Grateful

My sister had a medical emergency on Christmas Day, followed by several days in the ICU.  Her condition stabilized and then suddenly deteriorated.

Thank God, her medical providers realized that her condition was worse than they previously thought and performed the surgery that prevented her death.

We dodged a bullet.  She is still with us, she is home and recovering, and I am so, so grateful.

Thank you all for your prayers.

Me and three of my five siblings. 


  1. Paula - So glad things are better! I will continue to remember you and your sister in my prayers.

  2. Happy to hear she is home. Prayers for a complete recovery.

  3. A wonderful answered prayer....Heidi

  4. So glad everything worked out for your sister and she is home recovering. Hope you have a good new year for 2013!
