I know that this should be posted in personals, but many of you are very worried about Shirlene and I wanted to make sure you all see this update.


Rick's surgery went well and Shirlene is waiting for him to awake from the anesthesia. She will explain the full details, but the doctor said he should be able to talk now. Had they not decided on this unscheduled surgery, Rick would have probably had another stroke within a week of the 1st one.

Shirlene had an awesome time with the LORD and has been sharing her faith and testimony with others in the waiting room at the hospital! Tell me if GOD ain't good. :-) I see a strong woman who has the peace that passes all understanding - the peace of GOD.

Please remember to fast and pray for our friends Shirlene and Rick. Both will come out of this stronger than ever! She truly has been an inspiration to me, and I know to most of you as well.

Hugs, teri

Thank you so much for letting us know how everything went, and I am so glad that she has God on her side, and that she can share Him with others.
Give her all my love when she talks to you again,and I will pray that Rick gets better and better as the days go on, and that he will be home soon.
Hugs and God bless.
Marietta

Oh I am so relieved, I am overcome.

I was praying they would operate, and soon.

This is the treatment they would have done here in Australia, but they would then induce a coma to allow the brain to heal.

This treatment, for Stroke, works really well and a successful outcome is almost guaranteed when they do this, so I could not understand why the doctors there hadn't operated to relieve the pressure. I know each case is different and understand they worry about the risks as each person's strength and general health has to be taken into account, but......

OH I am so, so, glad God has guided the doctors to do this. My prayers have been answered and now I know we just need to pray that Rick will make a full recovery.
I believe he will, I do not doubt, but I am not so vain as to say I KNOW he will, that is in God's hands, but in my heart I believe he will.

Trust in the Lord, have faith and never let the devil's evil thoughts enter to sap your positive energy.

Thank you so much Terri, I have been so anxious to hear this great news. A thousand thank you's.

Hugs n love, Meg

Dear Teri,

All praise and honour to our glorious Father in heaven and thankyou Teri for keeping us informed.

I knew all would be well with everyone around the world praying for her. I've just had this serenity about the family whilst praying for them.

She told me she could feel a real sense of God's arms around her.

Prayer is one of the most powerful tools we have and of course the most powerful is L O V E. What an awesome God we serve!

I'm doing the happy dance and have goose bumps (even though the air conditioner is on and it's not due to the cold air!!!!!!!)

Love and blessings Chris

P.S. A big thankyou to you too Teri - God bless you
