Mom Bjorlie has been scheduled for surgery: Friday – January 23rd. Please pray for her and the whole family!
She is recovering well from the flu but it appears the situation may be more complicated than originally thought, although I don’t think open heart surgery could ever be looked lightly. There is an aortic aneurism (I have to go Google that right now), and an ultrasound on Monday to make sure there’s not one in her stomach, too. Also, the mitral valve might need replacing, but the surgeon won’t know until he looks around during the procedure.
Hmm…this is the part where we pray hard. Thankfully, what we view as scarily complex is small potatoes to the Lord. But He knows we get anxious anyway and He sympathizes with us. 🙂
