I am asking everyone to please pray for my SIL, April, she is having heart surgery this morning to repair a hole in her heart. She is at Ochsner in New Orleans, and the surgery is to begin around 11 a.m. For the past couple of months, she has been having migraines and went to a neurologist who ran test after test and determined she has a blood clot on her brain. Well, after she found out she had a blood clot, another doctor came in and told her that she has a hole in her heart that didn't close after birth. Apparently, some babies are born with a hole in the upper or lower septum of the heart that eventually closes after birth, and they lead a normal and productive life. The doctors are still not clear as to why April hasn't shown symptoms of this before; but only God knows why. Please pray that the surgery goes well and pray for April's quick recovery. I am going to say a prayer also. "Dear Heavenly Father, I pray that YOU will guide the surgeon's hands this morning and bring a full and quick recovery to April following the surgery. May all her fears be gone and and may she know YOU are always with her and that YOU will never abandon nor forsake her. In Jesus Mighty Name I pray, Amen." Thank you all so much, and I will let April know that everyone is praying for her!
