The power of love and prayer!!!!!!

(Some of you may have already read this in the email I sent out, but I have many people to contact so I am taking the quick route and copying and pasting it here for all of my beloved bloggy friends!!!)

I have GREAT news about my Mom! All I can say is God works in very mysterious ways!!!!! And God is so GOOD!!!! And you are all amazing and appreciated and much loved!!!

My Dad just called me after he talked to my Mom's doctor. They did the catheterization today to determine if there were blockages. This would determine how tomorrow's surgery would have been performed. When they did the procedure not only were there no blockages whatsoever the valve that they thought was narrowing is actually wide open!!! She does not need to have the surgery tomorrow, and in fact the doctor told my Dad he can bring her home around 9PM tonight!!!!!!! The doctor explained to my Dad that when her last endocardiogram was done it appeared the valve was narrowing. I honestly don't know if it was read incorrectly or it just wasn't a clear picture or what. All I know is that this procedure today showed my Mom has a very healthy heart!!!!!

As for her energy levels, the doctor feels that the biggest thing right now is weight, something our entire family is battling. And I can tell you right now we will be battling a lot harder, all of us, as a family! I am determined that none of us go through something like this. We are turning over a new leaf, together! This news today was a gift form God that we are not going to squander!!!

I got your email!! I couldnt respond because I was at work (still am) YAYYYYYYYYYOOOOO about your mom! I am so happy!! That really says something about the power of prayer doesnt it? And it makes you wonder how they made that mistake to begin with, I mean, your mom wouldve gone under the knife for nothing if she didnt have that appt today!! That gives me shivers. I am so glad she won't need this surgery! :)
