Thank you, everyone who has prayed for my mom. It's nothing short of a miracle.
She has had so many difficulties since her surgery January 7. I can't even begin to name them all. She started coming around mentally Wednesday evening (a week after her lobectomy). She'd been in distress both physically and mentally for the whole week. We thought we were losing her.
The problem that remained until today was her heart rate, which had soared. There was an irregular rhythm, an atrial flutter, not something you can live with for very long. She was scheduled for a heart shock (not the medical term, obviously), but today, shortly before being taken for the procedure, her heart returned to normal! On its own. Even her cardiologist had no explanation for it except prayer.
The last 36 hours have been great. She is even being moved out of ICU to a regular room. If we can get her blood pressure to return to normal, she may come home soon. And - her doctor convinced her to have chemo (in a few weeks) which she had adamantly refused since this started.
If anyone tells you that miracles don't happen, or that prayer doesn't work, I'm here to tell them they're wrong. Please keep her in your prayers for continued healing. And THANK YOU! All of my blog friends are absolutely amazing!
P. S. Maybe I will have a chance to read some of your blogs this weekend.
