Dear Pilgrim Pals:
Greetings from the Fisher household! We trust you're having a great summer. The weather here hasn't been very good. We will set a record for the most rainfall in June and July since the late 1800's. There's been rain or the threat of rain almost every day lately.
I just returned from the hospital in Peterborough where my mother, Jean Fisher (pictured with David Shantz), was admitted yesterday. She had such severe pain yesterday morning (Wednesday) that she couldn't get out of bed and stand on her own. My brother Mark had to help her. The pain in her groin/hip area became so bad that they called an ambulance to take her to the hospital.
X-rays didn't reveal anything out of the ordinary but a bone scan today showed infection in her replacement hip. Mom has had both hips and both knees replaced in the past.
They removed fluid from her hip this afternoon (Thursday) and mom will have surgery on her infected hip tomorrow (Friday).
Please pray that there will be no complications and that the Lord would guide the hands of the surgeon. Mom is in relatively good health except for this setback.
We know that God is sovereign and in control of every situation and we're trusting Him. Thanks so much for your prayer support for mom.
In His Great Love,
