Good morning! I just wanted to post an update on Kara. Her surgery was yesterday and all went well. The following is part of the e-mail her sister sent earlier this morning.

She was taken to ICU around 4:30pm today and will be there for 2-3 days. Everything is looking good so far. Tomorrow they will do another scan just to check in the clip around the aneurysm. She has been nauseous and they are trying some medication to help with that along with something for pain. I just wanted to list a few specific prayer requests before the evening is over.

- please pray that Kara would not get the flu (as the swine flu is here in Omaha, but not at this specific hospital)
- no infection
- no more nausea
- her blood pressure is a little bit higher than they would like- please pray that it would come down
- rest for her and my parents who are staying overnight in the ICU
- no leakage around the clip
- a clear CT scan tomorrow

I will see you a little later!
