Flow Artery Flow!!! We Trust In You!!!

Whew! I tried to Cowgirl Up but just wasn't able to do it. I took a chair right by Clark's bedside but with all the bells and whistles going off, it was way too tense to take so I moved back into the waiting room. I found myself just shaking in his room. My nerves where running away with my emotions. I'd rather make frequent visits to his room rather than a constant stay. The bolt was successfully removed this afternoon. He is still on a respirator and has tons of tubes and lines running all over his body.

Clark is doing well as far as the eye can see but Dr. Schwartz has some major concerns. He just visited Clark before I ran out with my tail between my legs. I was told that they are taking Clark to do an angiogram of the liver early evening because they are VERY concerned that the main artery going to the liver is not working. This is the one they had battled with so long during surgery too. If they find that this artery is not functioning, they may have to do another liver transplant ASAP. Clark would be placed in the #1 status again in the five state region and replacement of this liver would be soon. Results of this test should be available between 8pm and 9pm mst tonight. As you might understand, we are very worried again. On the good side of things, this angiogram is a very detailed study and will answer many questions the Drs. can not see for themselves. If all does look positive, it will relieve many concerns and we can comfortably move forward. We are praying that the results will be a confirmation of good things to come. Dr. Schwartz said to Clark, "you are doing pretty good and we are pleased but you almost died. You need to hang in there with us". Please Dear Father, I do beg that you would bring us the assurance of function and good results. Bless Clark! Fight Clark Fight...

Clark and family-
May the Lord comfort you and guide you through the ups and downs of this ordeal. Thank you for taking the time to share updated information through this blog as many of Clark's classmates and I follow it daily and throughout the day. I want you all to know that we are still continuing to pray and ask God to watch over all of you...





"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."(Philippians 4:6-7)

Hi Rhonda & Clark
I am so sorry that you have to go through this. I know that you are both so strong and that you will come through this. Please call me to cry on my shoulder or scream or whatever. Do you need me to be there? If you call I will come.

I sought the Lord and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. Psalm 34:4

Deliver Rhonda and her family now please Lord, Strengthen them and keep them in your care. Amen
