There has been a bit of good news. The doctors did an arterial angiogram (a type of dye test) a few hours ago that showed that the AVM has been entirely removed and that there is no further bleeding — in other words, the surgery was a complete success as far as that goes. We still do not know (and still won’t know for a few days) whether and to the extent Katherine has suffered any permanent damage. The risks that she has are still very high. Obviously, it is still a very long road ahead and we need everyone to absolutely start a bonfire of prayer. But at the hospital, we all feel the Lord at work and are encouraged by this news.
Right now, Jay and the Arnolds have everything they need, so there is no need to bring anything to the hospital. I’ll be in touch in the next few days with plans for meal delivery for the family, but for now, I think Jay would appreciate just your prayers more than anything – no need to send/bring anything to the hospital at this point.
