Amy's Out of Surgery

Okay, Amy is out of surgery and her mom has arrived! Judy is on her way to pick up Christian and then head home. The Dr said that Amy had an ovarian cyst that had ruptured so they went ahead and removed the ovary because if they didn't it would have dies and become infected. Here is the amazing thing.... they removed over a liter of blood from her abdomen, the Dr said she couldn't be live she was conscious when she saw how much blood had already spilled into her abdomen. It is truly the hand of God on Amy's life that she went to the hospital when she did and had the surgery. She might be home later but they aren't sure. She is also anemic, gee I wonder why, she lost a lot of blood! They will watch her and see if she needs to stay overnight tonight. Judy will be caring for all the children and Ryan is on his way home, he left a day early to get back and be there for Judy! Judy and Amy's Mom will care for Amy until she is feeling better. I am sure Judy will be back to blogging as soon as she gets everyone and everything settled at home!
Why don't you leave her a comment, a bible verse for her to draw strength form would be wonderful if you could. She needs the encouragement right now and I so wish I could get in the car and be there to give her break!

So glad that God was looking out for Amy! I'm also thankful that I was up earlier than usual this morning to check the blog and be able to help. I'll be praying for a quick recovery for Amy and extra strength for you Judy! One of my favorite verses is for when I am weak, then I am strong. Keep looking to God! Your doing an amazing job handling all the responsiblities God's given you. Please call if I can help in anyway, even a meal!

Your families have quite a time of testing and trusting! God will continue be faithful to provide all your needs. We are praying for Amy's healing, Judy's relief from the asthma, and good health for all the kids during this time. If there's any way I can help....I'm here.
