Keeping It In Perspective

Wednesday, I drove to Lima (2 hours north of Cincinnati) because my mom was have a heart catherization on Thursday. She's had a stress test come back showing limited blood flow to parts of her heart.

She was ushered into operating room hours before she was scheduled. That certainly cuts down greatly on the sit around and fret time! Less than an hour after she was gone into surgery we were meeting with the surgeon. Praise God!! Mom's heart is perfectly fine. She is having some spasms in the arteries; those are what are causing her pain. They are doing no damage. The only effect of them is the pain she's feeling. So they will control the spasms with medication.

She was doing so well, that I was sent home a day early. Not that I missed my babies or anything.

After a two hour drive, I turned on my street to see a car accident and my husband out in the street with his cell phone. I just assumed he was helping out. I opened the car door (because the window on his van, which I was driving) is not working. I asked if him if everything was okay. He said, "yea, we're both fine. " That is when it dawned on me that it was my van sitting wrecked on the street. At that point, all I could do was rejoice because no one was hurt. My mom's heart is fine and no one was hurt in the accident.

God is good, all the time!!

Too amazing -- our friends Strawberry and Shortcake (and their twins Peaches and Cream) recently walked away from a terrible car accident. The tow truck driver, the body shop, even the police at the scene couldn't believe they made it without a scratch.

I'm so glad your family remained safe as well!

Praise God that these challenges were not more challenging!!!! And I pray the van gets fixed quickly.
