When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.

Hi Dear Friends ~
I would like to ask for your prayers for my mom again. She was just rushed by ambulance to the hospital. She has a very high fever and is having severe abdominal pain that started earlier today. As some of you may remember, she had a very similar episode back in February that was initially thought to be Pancreatitis, but she was eventually told they believed it to be Diverticulitis. However, they never actually pinpointed what was going on. She seemed to recover nicely and hasn't had any problems since.
My mom suffers from a whole host of medical issues that are quite serious. The two most pressing issues at this time are Type II Diabetes and a severe heart condition. Her Diabetes is not currently under control, even though she and her doctor have been working aggressively to get it there. Her heart condition is NOT from heart disease but from a very abnormal heart rhythm, Atrial Fibrillation, that has led to her having chronic Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) and a very enlarged heart that no longer functions very well on its own. Therefore, a few years ago, she had to have a Pacemaker/Defibrillator implanted in her chest. The Pacemaker is to ensure that her heart pumps at a steady rhythm at all times to ensure that enough blood is pumped to the rest of her body. The Defibrillator is there in the event that her heart goes into an abnormal, life-threatening rhythm and does not correct itself quickly. If this should happen, the Defibrillator would then deliver a jolt of electricity to hopefully help the heart return to a normal rhythm. Praise the Lord, that has never happened and I pray it never does.
I would really appreciate your prayers for my mom. She is always taking care of others, no matter how sick she is or how rotten she may feel. I really hope this is nothing major. Please help her feel our prayers tonight.
Thanks so much and have a blessed Sunday.
