No, that’s not really my calendar. I keep mine on my iPhone so the changes are not as apparent. But this past week’s schedule might have appeared this way had it been on paper. So very much happened. The one day I wasn’t at a doctor’s office or hospital, I attended a funeral.

Two days were spent with First Daughter, one while they did a mylegram and and a scan at the hospital (she had minor complications and remains dizzy), the other was an EMG where they place electrodes and poke needles into nerves. Neither one much fun at all. The other medical trips were for a Good Friend’s pre-op and Beloved Husband’s therapy. Both are recovering. My own health seems to be fine, thank you very much for asking.

First Daughter, though, is not, and prayer for her upcoming surgery will be greatly appreciated, please! She’s paying a neurosurgeon to slit her throat. Don’t worry, it’s not only the same operation that gave me relief several years ago, it’s the same surgeon. Odd, it’s not really for the same reason, though.

I had a herniated disk between C3-C4 and congenital stenosis of the spinal. Hers is caused by the multiple rear-end accidents people have given her since she was eighteen. Most of them occurred when she was stopped at a stop sign or stopped by traffic in front of her. It’s almost as though there was a sign on the back of her car with a huge target.

What ever the causes, she will undergo surgery next Thursday morning and we truly covet your prayers for her speedy recovery.

When praying, please give thanks.

Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; (Ephesians 5:20 KJV)

Throughout the Bible, we are exhorted to give thanks.

Give thanks unto the LORD, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people. (1 Chronicles 16:8 KJV)

We give thanks for the ability of the surgeon, for the caring staff at the hospital, for the congregational prayer support. All of these available by the mercy of God. For these blessings and much, much more, we give thanks. Please, join with us in prayer.

To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever. (Psalms 30:12 KJV)

  3. Hi Grammy Blick -

    Prayer for your First Daughter:

    Father, in the healing name of JESUS, I pray for Your healing hands to minister to all who are involved in the medical processes.
    You are the Creator of us all and You know precisely what is best - when, how and what. Administer Your medicinal properties, Father, and work on hearts in the spiritual - as nothing is more important than hearts surrendered to You.

    Thank you, Lord - Amen

Thank you for taking time to read and comment on the blog. Comments should take into consideration this verse: Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
