Dear Prayer Warriors,
I come to you with an update regarding my dear friend, Roberta......
As of today, she is still in ICU in critical condition! She continues on
the ventilator.....she has developed a fistula between the esophagus &
trachea....this is a critical issue......the reason for the drain in her
back.......they are going to replace the drain today, as they are not
satisfied with the way it is draining!!! They are also calling in a
cardiologist regarding her heart rate, etc........
She is in quite a bit of pain....some lucid moments between being heavily
medicated for pain.....they removed her staples & sutures
yesterday......the incisions opened!!!! Both of them! Please pray that GOD
will protect from any hospital-induced infection!!!! Or otherwise, for that
matter, as she is a brittle diabetic.....she is, again, on an insulin
drip.....they have put a J-tube in to feed her.....
Please keep her in your prayers....we all know she is in GOD's capable
HANDS.....we want what GOD wants......her best!!!!
I continue to tell her of your prayers! I am about to go see her & read
some of the prayers forwarded to me on her behalf! Thank you for your care,
concern & prayers during her time of great need.....her Dad, Lloyd, seems
to be doing as well as is expected in the nursing home....some clear days &
some days of confusion.....GOD, again, is so faithful to HIS children...
From Roberta & her family......THANK YOU!!!!
I will keep you updated.....
In CHRIST, Cynthia
