Please pray for my mom

My mom called this morning at 6:45am to tell us she was having a hard time breathing and needed to go to the Emergency Room. JJ, being the rescue hero that he is, jumped in his truck and went to get her.

When they got to the ER the tests showed that her EKG was normal but her blood pressure was high. They’ve been doing more tests and they think she has a blood clot in her lung. They just did a CT scan and we’re waiting for the results. She will be admitted soon.

I was so looking forward to today! On Wednesdays my mom has started coming over to watch Aster so I can work on my book. It’s been wonderful to watch the two of them giggle and snuggle and bond. And I’ve gotten to spend extra time with my mom talking over lunch and enjoying Aster together during my breaks. We have enjoyed some really sweet times these past few weeks – it’s amazing what Aster has brought to our lives to tie our heart strings together even tighter than they were before.

Will you please pray for my mom? Her name is Sylvia. I’ll post updates on Twitter since they both feed to my blog and facebook. Thanks friends!

  1. I'm praying Renee!

    Dear Lord,
    Please be with Renee's Mom. Give wisdom and direction to the medical personnel that are working with her. Help them all to feel your peace and presence even in the midst of unknown circumstances. May they feel your presence in a special way.
    Amen.

    Blessings,
    Pearls

  2. Heavenly Father,

    I lift Sylvia up to you right now. You know the need and the path you have chosen for her feet. Wrap her in your arms and let her feel your healing touch. I thank you for the blessing that Aster has brought to this family and the blessing of mom/daughter ties that are being strengthened. Be with the family.
    In your name
    Amen

  3. Praying for your mom, you and the whole family. May God continue to work out His perfect plan in all of you.

  4. Renee,

    Our mothers share the same name. I am praying that your Mom has the "peace that passes all understanding to guard her heart and mind in Christ Jesus" in the midst of her circumstances. Praying for you and your family as well.

    Love, Andrea

    I don't know your mom, but when I think of her I think how God used her voice as the vessel to direct you into ministry at P31. I am sure that is only one of the many ways God has used your mom to direct and encourage you.

    We hope she is OK. So glad she was wise to call for help.

  11. Praying for your mom, Renee. For skilled doctors, compassionate nurses, and speedy resolution of this problem.
    I'm so glad you've gotten to spend extra time with her and she with Aster lately.
    God bless,
    Jennifer

  12. Praying the medical staff knows exactly what your Mom needs. Thank you Jesus for your Presence in our lives. May Renee's family find their strength in you.

  13. Praying for you, hope she is doing better!

  14. Still praying for you all and hoping your mom is back to normal real soon. I'm asking God to give you calm and confidence in HIM. He will see you thru!!!
    BTW…..when life slows down a bit for you, I want to chat with you. I have a few things to tell you and need to pick your brain about something….since it is ALL YOUR FAULT. My "we'll-never-have-a-pet-as-long-as-I'm-alive-and-allergic" hubby fell so in love with your Daisy last summer that last week we got a female Beagle off of Craig's list. HELP!!!! I need dog-rasing advice!!! 🙂

  15. With a bit of time on my hands, I've been searching for blog sites which deal well with the truth of our Faith and you certainly seem to be doing that! I'm also impressed with the very professional, attractive manner in which you present your words and work. I'll be back and will tell some friends about you. Of course, you're also invited to visit my blog if you have a chance: scripturestudent.wordpress.com.

    Get as close to Christ as you can and stay there. Keep up your good work! ~donkimrey

  16. Dearest Renee, I have been praying for your mom. Your blog has been a blessing to me. Love across the miles, dear friend! Sue

  17. Renee,

    I'm subbing today and for some reason felt drawn to check on you. I'm praying now for your sweet momma and for you and your family.

    Love you,
    Tammy
