Nanny Update

I realized I had not given y'all an update on my grandmother, who I asked you to pray for last week because she had to be sent to the hospital for a heart issue.

She had gone with my Papa to their house in Red River, NM and wasn't feeling well while they were there and also on their way home. The day they got home, she had to take nitroglycerine/nitroglycerides (I'm not sure what it's called) twice because her heart was hurting. She had a heart attack several years ago when I was in 4th grade, so she was concerned and made a doctor's appointment the next day. The doctor decided she needed to be sent to Tyler (the next biggest town where she could have tests done) by ambulance. She stayed in the hospital overnight and they ran a stress test on her the next day. She started having a pain while they were doing the stress test so they stopped it and decided to do a dye test on her heart. She just had one last year that showed no blockage, but this one showed significant blockage in three arteries.

While my mom and stepdad were rushing to Fort Worth for the baby's birth, my mom got a call that my Nanny would have to have a tripe bypass the next day. Happily and luckily, she had it on Thursday and everything went wonderfully. She got to come home today but still has a long road of recovery ahead of her.

So, thank you for your prayers for everything to work out for her! If you could keep praying that she has a quick and easy recovery ahead, that would be great!

Hope y'all are having a good week so far :)

Lauren, thank you so much for the update on Nanny. I was just asking Paxton and Abby last night if they had heard how her surgery went. I am so thankful that she is recovering and is home. Please tell her I have had her in my thoughts and prayers. Send more pics of Brendan soon.
