My step sister, Julie Kitchings Shaw, is in a very important surgery at this very moment. Her facebook status described it this way:
My surgery is at 8:30am tmw. It will last for 4-6 hrs. I will be on a cardiac bypass and liver bypass machine. The Dr. will give my liver heated chemo for 60-90 min. and install a HAI pump. I will be VERY uncomfortable for 4 wks. I will be in ICU for 2 days and he may keep me in the hospital for 14 days. I KNOW that God has sent me to him for a reason. He has given me HOPE! God is wonderful!
Thinking of my last post- a believer looks at difficulties and is not afraid because she hopes in an UNSHAKEABLE God who never fails us. I ask you to join me today in praying for her, her surgery, her recovery, and all the details that are part of such a big procedure.
