“She is alive and aware of her surroundings and has a big weekend ahead of her filled with many hours in the operating room. Right now all we need and can ask for are your prayers and well wishes. We are blessed to have my parents at home with the boys and my sister Leah Wright here as our medical translator. Peace, hope, and love to all.”
