Please spare a thought for Lynn

Those of you who read the stories on After Major Case will know Lynn and the great story she wrote.

Yesterday I received an email from her which I wanted to share with you, but needed her permission first, which I have now received:

"I have a favor to ask. I'm going to boldly ask for your prayers/good wishes. You see, 2 years ago I had open heart surgery to replace a valve & repair another one. I am markedly improved but have some problems with rapid heart rate & irregular rhythm. I've been repeatedly cardioverted (shocked) because I do not respond to medications. The doctors have decided to do a different kind of procedure to treat my problem. It isn't surgery but it is invasive & some what risky. And I am at the point where I have no other choice but to undergo it. I have a good comfort level with my doctors & have high hopes this will improve my health. But being a nurse has some disadvantages-you know how ugly things can get! I'm to be admitted to the hospital on Sunday, with the procedure tentatively scheduled for Tuesday. Hopefully I will be home no later than Saturday. Please remember me in your thoughts."

I'm not a believer, so I don't pray, but Lynn will be in my thoughts, and I hope you will all send positive thoughts to her too over the coming week, and that those of you who do pray will remember her in your prayers.
