We have friends (our age) who are facing major medical issues. Kathy is having a heart cath tomorrow at 1:30 to make sure there are no blockages. If that is ok, she will undergo open heart surgery on Thurs. the 19th at 7:00 a.m. for an aortic valve replacement. She will be in ICU for 2 days, in the hosp. 5-7 days, to be followed by rehab. & a long recovery. Prayers please for the surgeon's skill, no complications, & a good recovery. Her husb. Wil has stage 4 colon cancer, which has spread to his liver and lungs. Chemo. no longer is effective. He went on hospice this mo. He's having quite a lot of pain. Prayers for him as he travels this cancer journey. They have supportive family in the area, but they cannot be available all the time. As they come to mind, please pray for them in the days ahead. Thank you!

It sounds like this family has already suffered so much. Hoping Will can find relief soon for his pain and that Kathy's procedures are free of unwanted complications.

I will continue to pray for them. I'm sorry your friends are going through such difficult health issues at the same time.

Update on my friend's surgery: Kathy had a heart cath. on Wed. They found 1 blockage, which was repaired during her open heart surgery on Thurs. the 19th. She had a rough surgery, which lasted about 9 hrs. instead of the projected 3-4 hrs. There was a problem with the valve leaking. The repair didn't work. The surgeon ended up using a different valve. She was on & off the heart/lung machine 2 times. She spent 24 hrs. in the ICU, but got to transfer to a step-down unit yest. Breathing tube & several tubes were out. She walked 3 times yest. Today she needed meds. to regulate her heart rhythm. Her husb. Wil, who has terminal cancer, was able to spend the night at the hosp. Wed. night. & waited all day during the surgery. His dau. is with him 24/7, so he has good care. Please continue to pray for no complications, good healing for Kathy, & peace for both of them. Thanks for your prayers!
