THANK YOU SO MUCH..........................................

Thank you all for your precious prayers for Edward....so much has happened in the last seven days....Amy brought her laptop over today, Wednesday, so I wanted to say thank you.....

Edward had two procedures done by his vascular surgeons that were only partially successful....then Monday he underwent over four hours of surgery to remove blood clots and plaque from his left leg.....he is out of ICU now and in a room. He had a very rough night last night but today has been much better....a few other problems have been discovered but can be dealt with.....

Your thoughts and concern are so appreciated and your prayers to our Heavenly Father warm our hearts. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts....

Possibly we will go home either Friday or Saturday if Edward continues to improve.....

I'm looking forward to continuing our Marion-John-Betty-Edward saga.....oh, how we miss them.....

Betty, thank you for the update on Edward. I am so thankful he is out of ICU and in a room. That way you can be more comfortable and be with him more. I will continue to remember him in prayer as well as you and the rest of the family.

My name and your name is the same and my husband's name and your husband's name is the same. My husband is Edward, but I was introduced to him as Ed. So Ed has stuck with me but his family calls him Edward.

Take care of yourself so you won't get down.

I found you over at Marion's. I'm another Christian lady who believes in the power of prayer. "I pray for Edward's complete healing, and no more blood clots, ever! in Jesus name.
I have a prayer request on my blog also, if you have time to check it out.
God bless you and yours.

Just returned from my holiday in Scotland when I found this bad news on your and Marion's blog. I'm glad Edward is out of ICU now and I wish him a very speedy and full recovery. Dear Betty this must be very hard for Edward and you and for all your family and friends. I'm sending you all my best wishes and healing thoughts.

Take care my dear!

Betty,

I am so sorry that Edward is going through this. I remember what it was like when Dwight was in and out of the hospital for heart attacks several times in 2000. This is hard on both the patient and the spouse.

I continue to pray for a speedy recovery for Edward. My thoughts are with you both and thanks for the update. I hope you are home soon.

Blessings and hugs,
Mary
