Prayer Request, Update
Dear readers, thank you so much to each of you who prayed for my husband's mother as she prepared for her mastectomy!
She came through like a champ. Despite her age and her other health challenges, my MIL left the hospital the following day looking like a million dollars and headed for home. They even stopped for lunch on the way out. What a woman!
The situation afterward was complicated when my husband's grandmother suddenly and unexpectedly took a turn for the worse, health-wise, going from "fine" to "not so good" to "really, really bad" over the course of 72 hours. She died this afternoon.
Due to the fact that my mother-in-law just got home from major surgery, she cannot travel back east for the funeral. This is a great grief for her. However, she has her daughter with her, and that is a big comfort.
We are also grateful for such a mercifully short and easy passing for my husband's grandmother, and we praise the Lord for her beautiful, faithful life. She was an amazing woman and was much loved and very much admired.
It's been quite a week. But we are praising the Lord for His faithfulness in all situations - in death as well as in life.
Thank you so much for your prayers, dear readers!
