Prep for Surgery

Katy is surprisingly strong this morning after a very difficult night. Her spirit is very good and ready for surgery. My parents stayed with her last night and the Lord has been giving them unbelievable strength to keep going - they were all up for much of the night. Surgery is still set for 3pm today, despite some fears the doctor had about her lung function (she wasn’t able to take their standard lung test a few days ago because she was so physically weak, but is planning to take it today). Please pray that there are no complications in surgery, and that all goes well. Thank you for your encouraging words to her!

    Katy has been on my mind all morning. I am lifting her in prayer.

  2. Jennifer Blugerman Says:

    We are praying for you, Katy! This simply has to work — Qavah is going to need her big sister to have lots of energy to keep up with her!!! :-)

    Dearest Katy, Paul, Dawn, Colin/Jennifer, and Paul Burton,

    My prayers and thoughts have been much with you these days and am praying today that the Saviour and Almighty God will be very near and see this lung function test and surgery through without any complications. May His Holy Name be honored.

    I have just RECONFIRMED my flight for tomorrow and so look forward to seeing you all. I pray Katy will be doing very well so that we can rejoice together. I am just THRILLED TO DEATH with the new plans Lucile phoned me about a little while ago! WOW! God is SO GOOD!

    Much love, Aunt Lil

    We all keep you lifted up to Him, we are praying for a speedy recovery for you :)

    Love and Blessings
