Praising God

Thank you for praying. Shirley’s catheterisation was difficult and challenging (not to say precarious)  for the surgeons but it has been successful. She has come through the  severe trauma of the past week very well.  That is despite being informed how really ill she was. Had she not had the procedure at this time she had only weeks before something catastrophic happened.
The wonderful news is that she has been allowed home tonight (Wednesday). She is badly shaken and very weak but rejoicing in the Lord. We praise God with her and Hamilton for His goodness and mercy to them.
But please note that it will be some considerable time before Shirley is able to do anything like what she did before. She MUST rest and will be monitored closely over the coming weeks with checks and tests. The problem of the blockage has been solved but this was not some regular stent insertion. Her heart condition has been changed forever but with the right care her health situation is manageable.
Normally I respect people’s privacy and do not say as much in such circumstances but I have deliberately painted just a little picture of what life is going to be like for them for the foreseeable future (I speak with some experience) So please pray for them both. Pray for Shirley’s recovery physically and emotionally and please – give them space. It is crucial that Shirley relaxes for at least 10 days.
They would want me to express their deepest thanks for all your love and prayers. What a wonderful encouragement you are to them. Join with them in thanking God for all He has done for Shirley.
The Lord bless you
1 Peter 5:10-11 
“And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.”
