Please keep the prayers coming! The latest update from Kari's mom is that even though this second stroke was bigger than the one she suffered on Thanksgiving, Kari is already showing signs of recovery from it. Very slow, very small signs but good signs!
I have to admit that I don't know Kari very well. She has only been married to my brother for a couple of years and we don't live near each other. I have gotten to know her better via FB (it's the love part of that love/hate relationship I have with it). I know that Kari is a teacher who teaches high school history. She gets very excited when the new school year rolls around and I'm sure she's missing all of her students right now. She has also recommended resources for us to use in our homeschool. The fact that she's so positive about homeschooling tells me she really loves education. She also loves all things "country". She's a Texas girl through and through. And has a little niece that she adores and who clearly loves spending time with Aunt Kari. I blocked her face since she's not my child but trust me, the smiles are equally as sparkling on both these faces.
The other thing I've learned in the short time I've known her, and this is the most important thing, is that Kari is a fighter! This lovely lady has had a total of 4 major strokes in her young life not to mention arterial bypass surgery. But she's not giving up the fight, so nobody better think about counting her out! Please continue to pray for her strength and for my brother's strength too. Thank you!
