Thank you

I am touched by the responses I received for my previous post.Thank you all for your prayers and good wishes. There were a few who commented for the first time and I feel so connected to each one of you-even those who may not have commented seemed to be with me. I am glad to say that the immediate crisis is over and my sister in law may shift out of CCU today. However she has to undergo a valve replacement in around 2 week's time and that means an open heart surgery. It is only after that can one think of treating her stroke which has now become secondary. But I have faith that she will come out of it and we will have her around for many more years to come. The family went through a bad patch but then isn't that life? please continue to pray for her and my request to each one of you is 'please don't take your health for granted. There is absolute truth in the words we used to write in friends autographs.

"When wealth is lost nothing is lst,
When health is lost something is lost,
When charater is lost everything is lost".

So take care and God bless each one of you.

My prayers are with you and your family. Prayers for the value replacement surgery too. I know that its complicated than a bypass surgery. Hence double prayers for a successful operation.

Missed out on your earlier post HHG.

Am glad that your SIL is doing better now. Hope the surgery goes off well too.

My best wishes and prayers are with you and your family.

Dear HHG, this strikes a chord as someone very close to me underwent a dual valve replacement and aortic root replacement several years ago, and is, by God's grace, still leading a normal, active life. We are fortunate to live in a day and age when surgery and medical technology are both so advanced that these replacements are possible. All the very very best of good wishes to your SIL for a successful surgery and a complete recovery.
