Over the First Hurdle
This is a brief update to the last item, on Ali's health. We are thankful to the Lord that she has had a successful stent placed in the lateral anterior descending artery, which serves the front of the whole heart. Location is at the top, so it means a full blockage could have been deadly (apologies to any medical folks if I have misstated the case).
God is merciful in the details. We appreciate your prayer and ongoing prayer for the remaining health and other hurdles we must surmount during this long break.
