Please Pray for Mom

with one comment

Dad just called me from the hospital a few minutes ago and told me that Mom’s right thumb has turned black and she’s in a lot of pain with it.  The doctor sent her down for an MRI and it was determined that she has several blood clots in her arm blocking the blood flow into her thumb due to the arterial line they placed in her arm.

As we speak, they are prepping her for surgery with a vascular surgeon to get rid of these blood clots and open up the blood flow into her thumb.  The doctor said he thought there was a 60% chance he could save her thumb.  We know that with prayer, those chances go up significantly!

As you can see, this is very serious.  So, our family is asking everyone who reads this to please pray for my Mom that the surgery is a success and the circulation is restored into her thumb.  We have not come this far with her cancer treatment to be derailed by something like this. 

As always, thank you so much for your prayers and positive thoughts.  You guys are the best!

  1. Tracey, please tell your mother that her ‘Illinois’ family is all praying for her and for all of you. She helped me so much earlier this month, I hope my prayers help her.

    Thanks for the update….I’ll be watching for more.
