Continued prayers dearest Liza. Lord, have mercy!
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.

The initial condition which promoted the ER visit resolved itself.


She's now developed pneumonia which is really not cooperating.

Seems she needs to have aortic valve non intrusively fixed. Once fixed everything should heal due to increased blood flow.

She would need to be transported to another hospital for that.

Problem is, to take her, she needs to be off ventilator and pneumonia improved. It won't improve until valve is fixed.

So, we are stuck.

She is struggling and begging me to remove ventilator and shut it all off.

....and yet, according to docs, she still has a fairly good chance of recovery.

So.... I am between a rock and a hard place.

If she is to die, I wish God would just take her.  If not, I wish He would heal her and give her encouragement, because she's giving up and getting very angry and upset with me because of the ventilator.

She didn't want to go to the hospital. She told me she feared she wouldn't come home.

Please pray that God heals her and gives me a few more years with her. I'd give just about anything just to hear her voice again.
 
Dear God, help us.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Could you get some of the heavenly myrrh from the ACROD parish and have her anointed with it?
