will be back soon

Sorry I have been absent for a while. We were gone for a couple of days to be with my mother in law at the hospital. She was doing better, but the doctor called my husband yesterday to say that Pat had started bleeding internally on Friday, and they could not find where she was bleeding she thought we should come because they did not think she was going to make it much longer. I do not understand all of the medical stuff, but they were giving her blood and it was not helping. The doctor said her count was 15...whatever that means, but when we got there...the doctor came in to say that she was actually embarrassed because she could not explain the count as it was now 1.1 which is right where it should be. Hmmmm...she does not have to explain it to me...I know prayer works! :)
So I am actually heading back up for a few more days to help my father in law with things and give him a little break. He is exhausted to say the least.
While I was there, I did see some of the cards that you have sent, and they are all so very pretty!
Thank you so much!
I will be back soon!

Love and blessings to you,

I lost my brother last year. So many ups and downs during that whole process. I know EXACTLY what you are going through. Just remember that God is the God of ALL comfort as He, too, understands your pain. Praises to Him for answering your prayers!!! How awesome He truly is!
Eph 3:20-21
Will keep you in my prayers!!
