Update on Mom Reynolds

I know I mentioned that we had some health issues affecting the grandparents, and I wanted to give an update on her condition.

 Mom Reynolds had open heart surgery on April 17, and had a valve repair among many other things.  It was a successful surgery and we were very hopeful that everything would continue smoothly.  Unfortunately, a few days after she contracted MRSA (staph infection) and went septic.  She had to go into ICU for about a week, and it was a stressful time for all of us.  The kids can feel the tension and it's been so tough to see her so sick.  She is still at the hospital today, but not in ICU, and anxious to get home.  We know that there are so many people have been praying for her and we are so appreciative of all the prayers and well wishes for her!

We were so happy that last weekend, ALL the Reynolds kids came to town, and were together at our house.  We were missing our heart in the ICU, though!  (God is so good, because John, who lives in Korea, was on TDY in the area, just in time to see Mom!)
We miss you, Grandma!  We can't wait until you are home again.  The kids have been sick the last week, so we are hoping that we are all healthy so we can visit you!
