I mentioned yesterday that my mom needed prayers because of problems with her knee replacement. It turns out she needs to have the worst-case scenario: The doctors will have to remove her most recent artificial knee, let the leg sit without a knee for 6 to 8 weeks and then put a new replacement in. You can imagine that she is very discouraged.
She’s hoping that the doctor will give her clearance to drive down tonight to see her new granddaughter before the surgery scheduled for Friday. I don’t know when we’ll be able to go up and visit her otherwise; probably not for a couple of weeks.
Also, I’ve received news that my father’s eldest surviving sister, who is now in her 90s, is in the end stages of life. It doesn’t matter how old or young a person is, it still comes as a shock and is a burden of grief.
If you could mention my mom, Virginia, and my aunt, Jenny, in your prayers, I would appreciate it. Thanks.
And more baby pictures soon, I promise.
