Update on Ray

Real quick, here. Ray's valve replacement surgery went very smoothly yesterday. Before me Mum and I left about 8:00 p.m., he was doing 'as expected'. His blood pressure was low, so the plan was to give him 2 more units of blood. Well, about 10:00, Mum's phone rang...there was a blood clot or pool of blood pressing against Ray's heart, so they were taking him to surgery. Back we went. Everything is fine, now. He was oozing blood around one of the pacemaker wires (they placed a pacemaker yesterday that may or may not be temporary), so they took care of all of that and that was done. Ray's breathing tube is still in, so me Mum was encouraged to stay at home this a.m....they're going to awaken him slowly during the morning. Please keep Ray (& me Mum) lifted up in prayer...God is surely listening. Thank you all so much.

Sorry to hear about the additional surgery, but I'm glad things are going as well as they are. Surgery is always scary. I'll keep Ray and your Mum (and you, too) in my thoughts and prayers.
