It’s almost 11 p.m. on Wednesday Jan 30th. All things considered, today was a good day for Cindy, and we are so grateful for that. She is still in critical condition, but stable, and they are hoping to be able to move ahead with some other procedures she needs over the next few days. She appeared to respond very well to her surgery earlier this morning, and while we are not "out of the woods yet", the indicators in the last 30 hours have all been positive. God is always good, but we are grateful for the grace we have witnessed first hand with Cindy.
There must literally be thousands of people praying for Cindy and her family. I have hundreds of emails, text messages, facebook messages and calls about Cindy, and that’s just me. You are one great community. You are being the church – at Connexus and way beyond. Thank you.
Many of you are asking about the kids. They’re really quite amazing and are holding up well. I think the highlight of the day for them was getting stuck on the elevator on the sixth floor with some friends at Sunnybrook for half an hour. They were playing around and messed up the elevator. That was a little crazy, but it was fun. Nice to see kids being kids. They are safe in the care of friends tonight.
Thank you for asking how to help financially. A trust fund is being established this week for Cindy and her kids to help with their future. We will provide details when they are available. And I can also tell you that as her employer, Connexus is going to make sure she is well taken care of. We have a good benefits program and we are committed as a leadership team to provide for her. It is your generosity that will enable us to do that as a church.
The response from all of you has been beautifully overwhelming. Thank you for your incredible compassion and care.
