Answered Prayers


I'm sitting in a recovery room in Lima, Ohio, as my perfectly healthy husband lies nearby, watching Bonanza from his hospital bed. The heart catheterization is over and I just spoke with the doctor who performed it. Romie has a healthy heart, things look good, and we'll be heading home soon.

What a relief for all of us. We're thanking God for answering our prayers and thanking family and friends (which includes many of you) for speaking prayers on Romie's behalf.

It was just as Dr. Arabhour suspected: When Romie ran on the treadmill, it elicited something called repolarization abnormality. And while anything labeled as abnormal can cause some concern, in this case, it's nothing to worry about.

Mom and Dad stayed all afternoon with me, then took me out for supper once we saw Romie and got the good news. Thanks for being there, Mom and Dad. It's always easier to go through the waiting in instances like this when you've got company.

Romie is in a really good mood right now. Me, too. :-)

I'm so glad about this, Kylee! Much relieved. I owe you email...had a challenging couple of days here, nothing serious, but I got behind in much stuff again. Just wanted to quickly tell you you've both been in my thoughts and prayers, and I"m glad for answered prayers too. Big hugs!
