Esther's surgery is tomorrow morning.  We will walk her to the OR at 7:15 am.  We will get updates periodically during the surgery, and we should be able to see here again around noon.

Today my sister came to visit, and then headed towards my sister's house, stopping to do some shopping.  She had some severe abdominal pain, and ended up driving herself to the hospital and is still undergoing tests to find out what is causing this pain.

Tomorrow is my uncle's funeral as well.

Please pray for all these needs, and for peace for me through this difficult night.

I'll probably blog later if I can't sleep, but for now, I'm cherishing Esther!



  1. I will be praying for her. Stay strong and know that God will be taking good care of her.

  2. Ruth, God will give you the strenght to get through this. He is the most amazing , being.
    Jesus his son as you know, , gave his life for us, to reach out to others and let them know of his love for us, his compassion for us. Your family has touched so many, and when I go on your blog , you remind me, how much he loves us. I will light a candle for you early in the morning, and pray for you that things will be okay. As they say if two or more people pray together then amzing things can happen. Take Care,

  3. Dear Ruth,

    My prayers are with Esther, you and your family. I pray that God will grant you peace, strength, rest in him and a full recovery for Esther. Thank you for sharing your faith on your blog and demonstrating to others how to lean on the Lord during times of trial and difficulty.

    Your sister in Christ,
