Also note that this introduction is changing as Anna's condition changes... Please read the journal entries for the latest info.

Friday, July 16th, Anna went in for a sinus surgery that was supposed to last an hour. She had a complication, which combined with her Graves’ disease, triggered a Thyroid Storm. Both of her lungs collapsed which put pressure on her heart causing it to stop. She was resuscitated three times in the ER. She’s is in critical condition. She was in a medically induced coma for a number of days and remained on a breathing machine for about 11 days. The team at JPS hospital in Ft Worth was terrific. They did all they could to attempt to regulate her vital signs. Anna’s condition was very serious, but she is receiving excellent care. 

Please join us in praying for Anna that the Lord will watch over her according to His perfect plan.

Bobby Bell (Anna’s husband) and Patrick and Christie (Anna’s parents) are staying with her at the hospital. Due to COVID, there can be no visitors.  The hospital is also asking for no flowers, blankets, or anything that she could inhale due to her lung damage. 

The best thing we can all do is pray.  💗

“And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness.  For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words.  And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will.  And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:26-28‬ ‭NLT‬‬
