Nancy didn't tell us cause she didn't want to spoil our fun. But, while we were away, our oldest child, Connie, went into the hospital with severe pain in her stomach and chest. Through tests, they determined her problem to be as a result of stones leaving her gall bladder and lodging in her pancreas.
Now, this is such a rare occurrance, the Dr's didn't know what to do. But, Connie's Aunt Dolly knew what was needed and asked the members of her church to pray. Yesterday, they ran an extensively long MRI scan on Connie and the stones had disappeared. Gone completely. No trace of where they went. Now, I don't know how you feel about it but, if an old rusty car is sitting in a field one day and it's gone the next, without any evidence of being towed, or otherwise carted away, it's a miracle. And, I think the same has happened where Connie and her stones are concerned. And, we're all very thankful. Because, we were told the stones in her pancreas was life threatening.
It's customary to ask for prayers when someone is ill, asking for a speedy recovery. But, in this instance, It would gladden my heart if you would join us and say a prayer of thanksgiving.
Later, I'll tell about how my cousin and I plaster "W-04" stickers on his Son-in-laws bumper.
