Urgent Prayer Request

Richie's doctor just visited and said that he is scheduling a CT scan for Richie today.  He is worried that the aorta graft might be too close to Richie's intestines, and that over time they may rub against each other and cause problems.  He said that if they are too close, he will have to go back in and put a "buffer" of fat between them.  Our request would be that this would not be necessary, but we are confident that God has a plan for Richie's good either way.

Also pray that Richie can down the awful CT contrast and not feel too sick.  He's been so happy to be able to drink liquids, but now he won't be able to for awhile.  Not fun. 


  1. We will pray hard that that won’t be necessary. :o(
    So many people are praying for you! God has been so good! I know He will continue to bless you during this difficult time!

    I love you so much!

  2. Praying for you dear sister and brother in Christ! :-)
    God is so great, so strong, and so mighty!
    There is nothing that God can not do ..... FOR YOU!!!

  3. I've been out of contact for a couple days (traveling and my iPad would not post a comment), but I was able to read each entry of your blog. I'm continually keeping you both in my prayers, and will petition our great God for this particular request.

    You take good care of yourself, Lydia. Keep up your strength and health so you will be ready to bring your sweet husband home soon. xoxox
