When you have a little time today say a little prayer for my sister, Monalea. I told you about her in the “Saturday Reading.” She was rushed to the hospital yesterday because of some heart problems she was having. They are going to do a stress-test and possibly an angio-cardiogram today in Lubbock.
The doctors tell her that her heart was damaged from a battle she had with cancer a few years ago. I’m not sure to what extent, but she could sure use a prayer or two today.
I’m heading to Lubbock to check on her today and others today. So I’ll see all of you guys tomorrow.
UPDATE… (9:35 p.m.)
I saw Monalea today in Lubbock. She was tired. They had done a stress test and a few other tests on her heart. Thankfully, to this point everything has come back pretty good. Tomorrow they will do an angiogram where they use dye to look around. They did tell her that her heart was functioning at 60% which is much better than they thought.
Her biggest concern today when I was there was her “Top 10 Tuesday” post she’d written last week and was wanting to post tomorrow. I told her she could post it on Thursday and call it “Top 10 Tuesday on Thursday.”
Thanks SO much for you prayers today. She felt them!
UPDATE: May 1st – 8:00 p.m.
A quick update on Monalea. She’s doing better today. They’ve run every test on her imaginable and haven’t come up with anything real bad. We praise God for that. They’re going to put her on a heart monitor tonight and tomorrow and make her get up and walk around to see if they can get her heart to act up again. If all goes well she might get to go home on Thursday.
Thankfully, to this point everything has been very good. She asked me tonight to tell each of you thank you for the prayers. I thank you too.
UPDATE: May 2nd – 1:00 p.m.
Monalea got to get out of the hospital this morning. I think she feels like a Guinea pig for doctor’s testing. All the test came back as good as can be expected. The doctors told her that the spot on her heart was from the radiation she endured throughout her cancer treatments. That the 60% function of her heart was just something she’d have to learn to live with. I’m sure she’ll give us a full update on her blog later today or tomorrow.
Again, thanks for the prayers.
