My friends I promised you an update about my husband today.

We went back to the doctor today after weeks of test. He will be having a double surgery on Monday Oct.5th

He has blockages in the Iliac artery. Which is the abdominal artery leading from the aorta. Then he also has blockages in his kidneys.

This is a hard time for us. Please continue to pray for us. You have been so faithful in showering us with love and prayers. This is even harder for us as Tuesday Oct. the 6th is my birthday. This is always a fun time for us and my husband always BBQ's for me.

He has so much faith in our Lord. He is such a kind man and I love him with all my heart.



Hi Mary,
Thanks for the update...and of course I'll pray for you, hubby and all the medical staff that will be involved with the surgery.
Sending you BIRTHDAY WISHES...

Hi Mary:
Oh, my dear, he is in our prayers!!! My Friend, take an extra breath and try to relax a bit; going through times like this is taxing. You go beyond all of it.
You are strong because of your faith!!!
You are Blessed

Oh Mary, I am so sorry.. Hopefully the surgeries will go well and you can celebrate your birthday a few days or weeks later.

I'm sad also tonight. MY sweet brother died today. I'm the last one in my immediate family now.

Love and Lots of Prayers,
Please keep us updated.

Mary, I've written your husband on my calendar to pray for him for Monday. I'm sorry you are going through this, however aren't you glad they discovered it and it is fixable?? We must trust that all will be well. I hope and pray that you will have peace as you go with him and wait for the outcome.

Happy Birthday Mary Isabella!!

I remember how hard it was when Dwight had his bypass surgery. His surgeon told me it's harder on the spouse than it is on the patient, so be sure to take care of yourself. The professional medical staff will take care of your husband and he can't be in better hands.

Praying that he has a safe and successful surgery.

Wishing you much happiness on your birthday. Happy Birthday, my friend.

I know it's hard to celebrate your special day when your hubby just had surgery yesterday but I just wanted you to know that I'm thinking of you. My prayers continue that all goes well for him and that he will soon recover fully. xoxo
