Need Prayers as FIL in Hospital Again

Seems like the prevailing story for the past little bit for us, but my father in law was taken to the hospital again last night. His defibrillator went off three times in succession. I got word of this as I was driving home on Rt. 57 yesterday afternoon. My wife, daughter and I went right to the hospital as I got home. Once we got there and I was sure things were stabilized, I had to go gas up my car. Along the way I stopped and picked some double cheeseburgers, fries, and apple pies, since I was sure that my wife and mother in law hadn't eaten yet. Important thing in my mind was to make sure that Kathy(my wife) and Ella Jean(mother in law) were taken care of. The medical staff would take care of Eddie, my father in law.

Eddie and Ella Jean are understandably very frustrated. They are very grateful that Kathy and I are there for them, but I wouldn't have it any other way. They have been there for us over the years and now it's time for us to try to return the favor. And if nothing else, the Bible commands it.

Pray that God's will be done and for us all to have grace through this.
