Update on Life

Hey all, it's Lizzy. Kat trusted me with her log-on so I could put a little update here. Many of you know that Kat's husband, Michael, had an aneurysm this weekend. I just got home from Atlanta, where I spent some of the day with Kat. Michael did have surgery, he's stable now, and will be having quite a load of tests this week to see what's what.

Kat is exhausted and of course still dealing with her own recent health issues... when I left her she was going home to finally get some rest. I'm hopeful she was able to do that.

I know that Kat & Michael & the girls and their whole family appreciate your thoughts and prayers. If you want further information, you can e-mail me at bkkgray@gmail.com.

Father - please continue to be with Michael and the doctors and nursing taking care of them, guide them and their decisions. Be with Kat & her Mom, and the girls. Give them peace and comfort in this time. Be with their family and friends. Give us the words that will comfort and the actions that will soothe. In your name - Amen

Rene said...

Kat,

I'm a bloggy friend of Lizzie and Kori's and I've been following your husband's illness on their blogs. I wanted to come over and let you know I've been praying for you all. My hubby has leukemia and will shortly be having a bone marrow transplant so I understand all the unwanted medical training you are now getting. Hang in there and in the end just remember how you can impress everyone with your superior medical intellect! I truly believe there's a reason for everything but in my own situation I could have lived without this lesson!

Hugs,

Rene

I will continue to pray for you and your family, Kat.
