An Update on Meredith

Thank you for praying for Meredith on Wednesday.

My cousin Jeff sent out an email yesterday with details of the surgery. He listed a boy version and a girl version. It was somewhat reminiscent of the Evinrude boat motor commercial that my hubby is so fond of, where the punch line at the end is, "A woman will say 21 million words before an Evinrude E-Tec needs maintenance. A man will say 7 million." (Just for fun I've posted the commercial from YouTube at the bottom of the post if you haven't seen it.)

Here is the boy version from Jeff's email to update you on Meredith's condition:

We went to Children's in Little Rock, had a seven and a half hour heart surgery, they fixed some problems, but maybe not all of them, they will be watching her for about two weeks before deciding on the next step.

Please continue to remember Meredith in your prayers as she heals from the lengthy surgery (she went home the following day) and as she and her family wait. Waiting is sometimes the hardest thing for me.

Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Here is the commercial:

So glad she's doing well! I was thinking about her this morning and assumed she was still in the hospital! Can't believe she went home the next day...but that is good for the whole family..being at home!

Loved the humor...true, so true! :)

Glad to hear the good report!
I love the clip. My hubby says we are given a certain number of words for our lifetime and he is trying to save his. He says I'm goin to run out!

So glad that at least some of her problems have been fixed! I pray that the rest will be taken care of soon.

Love the video clip. So true, so true. I can't tell you how many times I've asked Peanut Head, don't you ever get excited about anything?
