Just a quick update and prayers please ...

Todays' visit to the Dr. didn't really bring any answers or conclusions ..just more concern and uncertainty about what may be wrong....

Papa Fred had a routine visit to his Heart Dr..last week ..and was promptly sent for a catscan to check out an issue with pain he was havingin h is chest from a fall he took 4 years ago right after his bi-pass. The catscan didn't answer that question as of yet but led the Dr. to call us within a short time of getting the results back and tell us that there was something severely wrong with Papa's gall bladder and that he needed to see his M.D. ASAP we did and another test was scheduled ASAP and upon having that test done ..the results were not good in fact they couldn't get a result ..due to things not functioning ...So that technician sent us on to the next doctor ASAP which was today ...and the Dr. is very concerned now after reading the results from the test yesterday he couldn't say what is wrong but he mentioned a few possibilities of which one I cannot even begin to write now we are awaiting the more invasive test which I'm sure some of you are familiar with where they send a camera down the throat and do an ultra sound to see what exactly is going on.

And of course they scheduled that STAT needless to say it's got us a little stressed, nervous and on edge wondering what may be going on. And it looks like with all the pre-op things they need to have in order to do this last test it will be next week before it happens we will have a little wait which isn't always easy.

Our prayer is that it ends up nothing and that Gods healing hand will take care of what the issue is ...and of course if this is a course in life that has to be taken we pray for it to be the least of all evils some stones that need to be removed or the Gall bladder removed ...

No matter what the outcome we know God's hand and mercy is with us. Each time we have crossed some difficult waters he has held us up and gave us the strength to move forward ...and brought us out on the other side stronger for having gone through it...and I know he will again.

Please say a prayer for the healing of my Dad. He's had a hard road to bare the last 6 yrs. From his bi-pass to corotid surgeries seems he's ended up with about 1 surgery a year for the last 4 years ..and it's been hard on him.

I'm sure there are many people worse off by no means am I crying how bad things are ..just the opposite ..we have been so blessed ..each problem that has arisen has been caught in time to save his life ..and I give all the glory and thanks to God ..and the Doctors that he has filled with wisdom to heal and correct our delicate bodies .

However God says in his word that we are to call upon our brothers and sisters in times of need and prayer ..and we ask that you say a simple prayer for our dear Papa ... He's an absolute blessing to us ....and we love him so dearly ..!!! It would mean a great deal to know that Prayers were being said for him ...

Thank You dear Blog land Friends's nice to have a place you can come in Good times and tough times and reach out to the world for the simplest yet most powerful thing on earth ...Prayer !

  3. I too will put your dad in my prayers...this is a tough one..but our God is able....hang in there..

  4. I just randomly came across your blog. I was struck by your words.

    You sound like just like me in August when my Dad was just getting sick and we were waiting on so many test results.
    I hope the tests come back with positive news for your Dad.
    I will say a little prayer for your Dad and for you.


  5. I, too, hate the waiting game Sara.
    I will pray everyday for positive news. It seems that are a lot of us in need of this verse lately.

    "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God, and His peace which surpasses all understanding will guard your heart and mind" Philippians 4:6

  10. Hello Dear Sara, you can be sure that I will be praying for your Daddy! I know you've read this verse many times, but it's times like these that we need to meditate on it over and over...Deuteronomy 31:8 The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you: He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid: do not be discouraged.
    Bless you Sara, Abby and Daddy!
    Much love and hugs!
