Even though I can’t run to my sister’s side any time she needs something, I find great consolation in talking to her on the phone. It is not the same as being there, but I’ll take what I can get!
I talked to Rosario on my lunch break and she gave me a list of specific prayer requests. I hope I remember them all!
Most of the requests involved transitions. She is transitioning off her pain medication and would like prayers that it goes well. As Dad mentioned in an earlier update, she does not tolerate pain well, so she is very nervous about this transition.
Another transition is the transition of care. Although the family Rosario is staying with provide the bulk of her care, there are a few others who are helping as well. Rose is grateful for everyone who has been helping. Still the transition of care can be a lot.
The last transition Rosario would like you to keep in your prayers is a future one, but an important one. She will eventually need to find a new apartment and possibly a new roommate. It’s not jumping the gun to start praying for that search now.
Finally, Rosario has a follow-up appointment tomorrow to remove her sutures. She is a bit nervous about the removal and is asking that you pray that it is as pain-free as possible. Please also pray that she remembers all of the questions she has for the doctors. The appointment is at 9AM, so eastern standard time people can pray at noon.
Thank you for your continued prayers! Rosario and our entire family are very aware of how powerful your intercession has been.
