The other mother had emergency surgery tonight for a brain aneurysm - they placed 'coils' and the bleeding is stopped, she is on a breathing tube and sedated. It'll be a moment to moment thing for probably a few weeks while they monitor the pressure in her brain - that's the biggest concern right now. Going to be a stressful time for all of them.
I'm blessed with friendships with both ladies, and I just now put the fact together in my head that both of these CMers are named Mary. I like to believe Our Blessed Mother is helping to guide this journey for each of them. Dear Lord, please hold both of these Marys, their mothers, families and medical teams in your Hands. Give them wisdom, strength, comfort and peace through these difficult times just ahead. Amen.
As always, dear prayer warriors, you have my gratitude for your prayers.
