08 Sep Emergency Brain Surgery for Carrie (Sept. 8, 2011)
This is something I hate to write.
Yesterday morning, Carrie/Mom collapsed and was rushed to the hospital. Doctors confirmed a brain aneurysm and quickly transferred her to a larger, better-equipped hospital out of town. She’ll probably be having emergency surgery sometime today.
Doctors say that statistically, 1/3 of brain aneurysms are fatal. 1/3 result in life-changing circumstances. 1/3 have full recoveries. Clearly, mom hasn’t died. She also has full control of her motor skills and faculties. It seems she’s in that last 1/3.
We believe that God will guide Carrie to a full recovery!
Here’s what you can do:
1) Pray. For peace for our family. For supernatural skill for the surgeons. For extra strength and resolve. For God’s undertaking. For LOADS of good to come out of this.
2) Spread the word. Click here to tweet out a prayer request.
3) Leave well wishes/prayers/etc on our Facebook page.
Thanks so much everyone. We’ll keep you updated.
Joshua Gordon, on behalf of the Gordon family.
