Lindsay is out of surgery. She is in very critical condition and has lost a significant amount of blood. They were able to do the artery bypass but did not do anything additional with the mitral valve. The "wow" in this would be if the heart would regain its function. Dr. Mayer and his team did an amazing job and we need to pray for strength for them as well as the rest of the team that ministered to Lindsay.
It will be another hour or so until the kids will get to see her. PLEASE PRAY THAT THE LORD WILL STOP THE BLEEDING to the amazement of the doctors. They have closed the chest to hopefully help deal with the infection. It has been a very long day for everyone. Please pray for the kids as they process the news which is obviously not what we were all hoping for at the moment. God is still in control and HE can still WOW us all.
Thank you from the bottom of hearts for praying and supporting the family with your prayers.
Praying as we head off to bed that you are all able to rest despite Lindsay's fragile status. We have been waiting for this news and know too that God can 'wow' us in this. He already has in so many ways. Take care and we'll be eagerly awaiting a morning update. Heal well, sweet Lindsay.
love pam and fam
Jon and Laura,
Lydia and I are praying for Lindsay and you constantly. We will continue to do so, knowing that this whole situation is firmly in his grasp.
To you, O Lord, I lift my soul
In you, O God, I place my trust
Do not let me be put to shame
Nor let my enemies triumph over me
My hope is you
Show me your ways
Guide me in Truth
In all my days
My hope is you
I am, O Lord, filled with your love
You are, O God, my salvation
Guard my life and rescue me
My broken spirit shouts
My mended heart cries out...
Joe and Lydia
Praying without ceasing that God will STOP the bleeding and WOW the doctors with HIS healing hand.
Scott and Jill
Brian and I were just sitting here constantly checking her blog and said let's just pray again. We will continue too, I wake up during the night and immediately I think of Lindsay and start praying for her. I'm so grateful she is out of surgery and will be praying for a miracle, which she is. Colin and Morgan prayed tonight together for her. We love you and send you our love, we are also praying for the specifics you asked for and the wisdom for the Dr.'s. I pray you all will get some rest, love and hugs :) Melissa, Brian, Morgan and Colin
Thank you for the update. We have been waiting. I can say we have a feeling of cautious relief. We will continue to pray and keep Lindsay in the Lord's hands, the only place of safety. We will pray continuously. We love you all.

Thank you so much for the updates - we have been praying for Linday, the medical team, and you all throughout the day. We will continue to pray that God will grant Lindsay healing as only HE can! We are praying for strength, peace and rest for each of you in these critical hours.
As tonight turns into tomorrow the words of this song come to mind:
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases,
His mercies never come to an end.
They are new every morning
Great is THY Faithfuness, O LORD!
Charlene (Van Staalduinen)Meijer and family
Rest in the Lord.

Thank you Father for bringing sweet little Lindsay Bear through that difficult surgery. We know You will be watching over her through the night, so please give the team, her parents and loved ones much needed rest. And now we all can go to bed trusting you to do what is best for her, and knowing You can stop the bleeding and give her rest and strength, too. We'll be talking with you during the night.
Bill Pruitt called to give me the news that Lindsay was out of surgery and the update. This was just as my Bible Study group was getting ready to pray! She was top on our prayer list tonight. Jesus will be holding her and taking care of her needs tonight.
I know you are all so tired physically and emotionally. I pray for rest and peace for each of you. Linda Lazenby & family
"Know that He is God..know that He is able..."
Praying for you even in this late hour of the night.
Praying without ceasing that joy would cometh in the morning. And, that God would give you all so much grace, that it would just spill out all over everyone at the hospital.
karin and bob
Still praying! LOVE to all of you.
Aunt Bobbie, Uncle Binky, Sonny & Alexis
I am thankful that Lindsay survived the surgery, and I will pray for the bleeding to stop. I believe that God will work in a way none of us can imagine.
God never sleeps but I hope you guys are able to this evening. I just woke up and thought this would be a good time to pray. We are thinking of you all and speaking of you with our Father God often. May his complete peace be yours as little Lindsay rests in his arms tonight. God knows exactly where to touch Lindsay to heal her and we will continue to pray for his healing touch upon her little body.
KNOW that we are continuing to pray and will continue to do so. We love and care for you all.
Doug, Ellen and Gabie
All through the night, people have been praying. God's mercies are new every morning, great is His faithfulness. Praying today will bring much improvement and encouragement. Diane
Just checking in before work...Continually praying
Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. Ps 30:5
Jon & Laura,
We have been watching and praying from Mn and Ia. We run into people all over who ask us about Lindsay - Rock Valley, Ia, V&M store, Huiskens Store in Edgerton, etc. My memory work this morning is "But to each of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it." Eph 4:7. Jesus knows exactly how much grace you need and He will give you just what you need. We love you both! Uncle Fenton & Aunt Shirley
