I returned from a week in North Dakota last night. It was a good trip. I visited with my mother, my brother, and my friend Julie, in between writing sessions. I finished the first draft of the Colossians Bible study guide! This is exactly what I hoped for.
As I was driving home from the airport last night, my brother called to tell me that my mother had fallen and broken her hip. This was definitely not what I expected to hear. I have not been able to reach my mother yet, but I did talk to a nurse this morning. She told me Mom had surgery last night, getting to her room at 3:00 a.m. It turns out she broke her hip and wrist, and scraped her elbow. The nurse said she’s doing fine, but was sleeping. I called back awhile ago and her roommate (I assume) said she was sleeping. I’ll try again tonight.
Please pray for my mother’s speedy and complete recovery. She’s 81, so this will be difficult for her, but God can bring her through it. Thank you for praying!
May God bless you all!
