Dear Community here at Christian Blog,
I just received the following message from Kathy's husband Dave. Some of this I knew, but I was unaware of the "stroke" part:
"Just a short update. Kathy had a stroke Thursday night around 10:30 pm. We got her to the hospital around 11:30 pm. She had surgery to repair a brain aneurysm on Friday. I have been told there is no neurological deficits-- equal strength in both arms and legs.
She is really tired. She was sitting up in a chair for a little while this AM. Later we took about a 20' walk. Then back in the chair and later back in bed. She's sleeping right now.
She's a bit disoriented with periods of lucidity. I haven't talked to the doctor yet... Keep praying."
Needless to say this situation is a bit more serious than originally believed yet I am totally persuaded that we have the ability within our family here to manifest the faith to provide the spiritual support both Kathy and Dave need right now. We serve a great big wonderful God who overflows with power and might. I know that Kathy is one of His dearest servants whose heart overflows with love and thanksgiving for us all.
Even as I write this my heart is so burdened for I know what she and her family are going through. I went through this with my dad many years ago. May we all rededicate our most earnest prayers to our Heavenly Father that His grace and mercy would be made manifest in and through the healing of His beloved daughter. May we also pray for Dave as he has put his life on hold to be with and help
Thank you for allowing me to share this update and I will continue to relay any information as I receive it.
Blessings 2 You
