Minutes seem like hours and hours seem like days!

Yesterday morning I got a phone call and my heart stopped or at least that is what it felt like. Mom was being taken to the hospital due to low blood pressure and chest pain! I wanted to jump in the truck and rush "home" but decided that I should wait and pray. Wouldn't do any good to be there, trying to nurse a baby and stay calm. Mom knew we were praying for her and so I cried many tears and prayed all day long! She had a heart cath to get a better look at what was going on.
They found 2 blocked arteries and 2 partially blocked arteries.  They were able to get 1 stint in place to open one of the blockages.

We don't know what the plan of action is, we don't know if they are talking about another bypass surgery (she had her bypass 15 years ago) we just don't know.  All we do know is that she is going home to rest.  I was going to call and get more information but I want Mom and Dad to be able to spend some quiet time together, they will update us when they feel they are ready.  I am on edge and trying to find peace with this situation.  I KNOW God is in control but it's times like these that I find myself on my knees because that is all I can do.  I feel helpless but I am putting my fears aside and letting God do his work!

Having a big family is trying at times like these too because we all feel so many emotions right now and want to just fix everything but know we can't.  2 of my sisters live close to Mom and Dad so I am trusting that they will do anything and everything they can to help relieve some stress for Dad and make sure he eats because we all know Dad isn't a pro in the kitchen!  My other sister is only a few hours away and then there is my brother . . . . he is 4000 miles away and my heart hurts for him.  Most men are all the same way, just tell me the basics and I will be a rock and not worry because I am tough like that!  We are all scared and we are all stressed so I am asking that you keep us all in your prayers too.  I will keep the updates rolling as we know things but for now, please just pray!

I am praying for your mom, for full recovery and healing...and for peace for all of you as you sit in waiting. Remember Phil 4:6-7. He is in control and has your best interest at hand. Be strong in the Lord!
