Update on Joanne:
News from Toben via The Simple Wife tonight. Just precious. Please go read it and pray over them. I’m so grateful.
Joanne’s husband Toben updated Joanne’s blog last night with the latest. Please visit The Simple Wife and join with us in claiming Psalm 46 over her. I am sending the link to this blog to Joanne’s friend Jana to print out your prayers over her. Comments will remain open for as long as it takes. Please keep praying!!
Joanne is in ICU. The next 24-48 hours are critical. Bleeding and swelling are of concern. She has not woken up yet nor has she responded with her left side. SHE IS responding with her right hand, squeezing it when family/friends are praying over her and singing to her. Please continue to keep her in your prayers. Her entire family is reading blogs and facebook updates and sharing them with her. Your prayers are making a difference!!!
Joanne is in surgery right now. There is a blood clot in her brain. Pray for the next few hours for Dr. Nichols who is doing the procedure. It may be several hours before we know anything more. She is still not completely responsive, groaning, etc.
In the ambulance she was paralyzed on one side of her body. We do not know if that is still the case.
Pray for her life. Pray for complete healing and restoration in her body. Pray for her family. Pray for the doctor and those attending her.
sweet friends… I am asking you to join me in prayer today for my sweet friend Joanne Heim
This morning (just moments ago), Joanne’s daughter found her in the basement of her house unresponsive. It looks like she was running on the treadmill and may have had some attack. She was moving in seizure style, breathing irregularly and not responsive to Emma. Ambulance was called. Toben is with her at Littleton Hospital. Joanne’s mom is with the girls at home.
Please pray for protection, healing, wisdom/discernment for the doctors, calm and peace for the family.
It has been confirmed that Joanne has had a stroke. She is currently having a cat scan done. No other details. Please continue to pray for our dear friend.
Please pray for Joanne, Toben, Audrey & Emma and Joanne’s extended family. I have said it before, but it is worth repeating.. I treasure her and her friendship.
Feel free to leave your prayers for Joanne in the comment section. God bless you.
