Hello everyone, I am asking that you please stop a moment and pray for my sister. She is having another operation this afternoon on her right leg. This will be the second attempt to reconstruct her veins...she threw a blood clot yesterday and has a temp over 102.

This is the same sister I was estranged from for 2 years. She is in California with her son and virtually alone through all of this...the hospital had to call Ala to get us to help find her son.

The doctor said he would go in with the hopes to redo the surgery but to be prepared he felt she would surely lose her foot and possibly more of her leg. We have made our peace (well, I still have a lot of forgiving to do) but we may run out of time before she can make it home. Please pray for her and if you smoke, for God's sake QUIT...this is plain hardening of the arteries from smoking and cholesterol.
Kay

I finally got through to my sister this morning. The nurse I got first said she kept her foot so it appears they are trying to redo the surgery first and hope for the best. I know doctors have to tell you the worse but I am afraid my sisters and family only hear that part and send it to me. My message on the answering machine says she in going into surgery and they are going to take off her leg....my cousin who has lost a limb to similiar circumstances, tells me that he went through several surgeries before the amputation....we are hoping she will not have to do that. Her son and girlfriend never called to let us know anything so for those who are wondering why I do not get on a plane and go take care of my sister...it is because I know my temper too well....it is best I stay in another state at this time.

Thank you for the prayers....they worked I heard her voice this morning...mine was for her to live through the surgery and get well enough to come home.
Kay

Kay,

I'm glad that your sister is okay. I'm sorry I missed this post before. I will pray that she continues to do okay.

MY OTHER SISTER CALLED ME A FEW MINUTES AGO....THE SURGERY DID NOT WORK AND THEY HAVE SCHEDULED MY SISTER IN CALIFORNIA FOR SURGERY YET AGAIN THURSDAY...(ITHINK) THEY SAID IT WOULD BE AN AMPUTATION AT THE HIP. PLEASE PRAY FOR HER AGAIN. I AM GIVING THESE REPORTS AS I GET THEM. THE MAIN REASON IS BECAUSE I AM HURTING BUT ALSO TO TRY TO HELP SOMEONE ELSE SEE THE NEED TO QUIT SMOKING.

Our Father, who art in Heaven hollowed by thy name.....

Oh blessed Lord be with Kay and her sister. I lift her sister up at this moment in time. We ask for a safe surgery and a healthy recovery. Wrap your wonderous love around them so they have peace during this time.

In Jesus name, Amen.

Lean on Jesus, Kay. It is so hard to go through anything like this alone. Keep us posted.

God Bless

Love, Londa
