posted by Maureen Davis in prayer, god, thank you.

Just a brief update to quite a battle so far. Martha has been in and out of ICU but right now is in ICU and is stable. She had to have surgery and that went well. Hopefully and with the grace of God, she is on the road to a full recovery. Thank you all for the contined love and prayers.
