God has answered my prayers for my friend. She appears to be on the road to recovery. Her oxygen saturation is up. Her fever is down. The doctor thinks the abcess is resoving.
Her daughter, who has been in many ways estranged from her because of a long distance relationship since her husband divorced her, has been at her side for a week and doing a wonderful job of taking care of her. Her ex was very concerned and demonstrated that before his children. Her father came and has been here for several days. Many friends rallied to her side. I love how God has a plan for blessing in the midst of adversity. I feel certain that He is healing her. I am so grateful. Her family still needs her.
