Remember Glen in Your Prayers


my sister Karen's wedding 1982
I am maid of honor, hubs is best man

Glen has been my brother in law for 35 years.  He had surgery 2 weeks ago but something went wrong.  He ended up in ICU on a ventilator for over a week.

They finally found a serious leak hidden at the surgery site and repaired it.  He walked in the hospital a healthy 59 year old but now he is starting rehabilitation.

I spent a lot of time at the hospital ICU last week supporting my sister.  Please keep them in your prayers during this long road to recovery.

Life can change in an instant......be Thankful for Normal!

It's so true that life can change in an instant. I prayed for Glen, and all of you who love him, as soon as I finished reading this post. Please post updates from time to time as you're able.

"Life can change in an instant." Well said as many of us know. Take every day for granted & don't waste a single minute.

Amen to the 'normal'. I was always told God hands us days that only we can handle. Your BIL and sister will heal and life will be soon back to normal.

You're ALL in my prayers.

What a terrible thing to happen! Prayers for continued healing and for you and your sister. Life is so uncertain, and we need to treasure each other and every moment.

Glen hopes to move to rehab in the next few days. He still cant walk after being in the hospital 3 weeks now. Still running more tests. Thank you for your prayers!

That is horrible, a mistake in the hospital. I hope he makes a full recovery.

My hubby had hernia surgery and bled for days and had 4 units of blood before he started to get better. Tests didn't show up where he was bleeding from (and he had plenty of them) but it healed finally. We like to think our Drs. are infallible but things happen. Prayers with you all. Please keep us posted. hugs, lj
