This from Judy Shipley via Pam Sites:
Please add my Mom to the prayer request chain. She celebrated her 86th birthday on Sunday. She has been accepted into a research study for heart valve replacement at Baylor Medical Center in Plano. The surgery is tomorrow morning. It will take eight doctors 6-8 hours to perform the surgery. She will be in intensive care for several days and in the hospital as long as needed. I am thankful for this wonderful opportunity to restore her to health. It is a serious operation, though, especially at her age. I appreciate prayers!
