Prayer Request

Our pastor's daughter-in-law is fighting for her life. An earlier prayer request explains it in more detail posted here. About 2 weeks ago she went back in for another 'procedure'. She came through it relatively well. However, there were certain areas that were affected. She was having difficulty with short term memory, use of some of her limbs etc. They have kept her in the critical care unit of the ICU. Yesterday morning at 6:15 her husband Nathan called Pastor Ken and Marcia and said that Rylee had begun bleeding in the brain. They were taking her in for surgery. She was in a coma. Finally, at around 4 in the afternoon the doctores were able to stop the bleeding. It was determined that Rylee did suffer a stroke and was without oxygen to her brain. No one knows for how long. Rylee is 24 years old and she and Nathan have just been married over a year. The doctors said yesterday before the surgery that her life was hanging by a thread. Now they say it is hanging by a 'few' more threads. We would all appreciate your prayers for this young woman and her husband. Thank for approaching the throne of grace on their behalf.

I will remember Rylee, Claire.

Hey, my Bible looks just like yours. Actually, both of mine look like that...

I remember you sharing about Rylee a few months back. I'll pray for her today.

Claire, I will pray. How hard to have these things happening just when it seems they're at 'the beginning'. *sigh*

But God has a purpose that we may never understand. Not on this side of heaven, anyhows.

~hugs~ my friend!
