LOOKING TO PRAISE AND WORSHIP JESUS THE CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD. 18 No man has ever seen God at any time; the only unique Son, or the only begotten God, Who is in the bosom [in the intimate presence] of the Father, He has declared Him [He has revealed Him and brought Him out where He can be seen; He has interpreted Him and He has made Him known].

Little Miriam in the Hospital Again
Our Miriam is running a fever again (100.5), so Sharon has taken her to the ER. She actually had a check-up today and everything looked great, except for a little fever (which we thought was just b/c she was so bundled up [it's snowing out today]). The doctor said she probably just caught another cold, but they need to check her out anyways. Please pray that everything checks out and that there aren't bigger issues. Thanks!

I can't thank you enough for these updates and prayer requests for Miriam.
I was just over at Jonathan's blog earlier today and didn't see this posted yet, so I'm glad you posted it here. Now I can pray for her this evening, starting now.
You're a good and faithful brother, Mark.

Thanks for asking.

She was doing poorly until she went to see the doctor yesterday. She had severe headaches (she thought due to the medication she's on) and overwhelming overall exhaustion, which both contributed to a lack of appetite.

The doctor told her the headaches are to be expected since she now has a greater rush of blood to the brain after removing 80 percent blockage from her carotid artery.

He gave her a B12 shot, and that gave her some strength and energy. She's relieved to know that most of what she's experiencing now is not unexpected post-surgery.

Thanks for asking... :-)

I should have added that the doctor expects all residual post-surgery effects (headache, lack of strength, etc) to wane, but only after quite some time. Someone else who had the surgery told my mom it took her months to regain strength, so that's good to hear - to have some idea of what to expect and that it's normal.
