Praise God!

I just returned from Mitchell's ball practice and while I was there, I was able to chat with Sharla's sister-in-law.

The infection is gone! Sharla is out of ICU and is slowly recuperating; doctors are hopeful for a complete recovery. However, a long road still lies ahead. Sharla is currently being weaned off of the sedatives she was on, and is suffering withdrawal symptoms. She will also require plastic surgery/skin grafting in order to repair her incision site. She was "opened up" five times in the last month, so it's going to take some time to make that part of her body normal again.

Thank you so much to any of you that were praying for this family . . . they are finally able to anticipate the day that their wife/mother/daughter/sister will actually be at home with her new baby. There was a time not so long ago that their dream of this happening didn't seem possible.

Oh that's so great! I'm crying. I've been thinking of her and praying for her so much that I almost feel like I know her... Even though, really, I don't even know her name. I'm so happy she's out of danger.

I am so happy I scrolled down otherwise I would have missed this! Praise God from whom all blessings flow! Great news, but understanding there will be a long road ahead! Will continue to be praying for this miracle!
