Lynn Cox Surgery

6/19: OK, this time it’s official! The eagle has landed! Lynn is officially in her living room sitting in her easy chair! Thank you for all of your prayers cards notes everything, you guys overwhelm us!
6/17: Another Day. Keeping Lynn for observation, making sure.
6/15: Lynn’s cardiologist came in and she is experiencing a little bit of a-fib, and that is going to keep her in the hospital for one more day. He is not concerned about this being anything serious, it is simply a part of the normal experience of someone having open heart surgery. So please continue to pray that the a-fib goes away and she’ll be able to be released tomorrow and head for Osky! Thank you for all of your kind words and notes and texts and things we really appreciate it!
6/13: Lynn continues to improve by leaps and bounds! She was able to walk this evening without any trace of a fib! She’s been detached from almost all of her IVs and stuff. Please continue to pray and we are looking forward to eventually thinking about going home maybe even Tuesday!
6/12: “Lynn should be in a regular room soon, possibly later today, and we could possibly be home Tuesday.
6/11: “Lynn is doing great. She should be out of ICU tomorrow!
6/10: “Lynn is out of surgery!! Everything looks great and she is headed to recovery!”Lynn Cox, wife of Steve Cox (Bethel Baptist Church, Oskaloosa) is scheduled for open heart surgery tomorrow, June 10. The surgery is to fix a birth defect. She will be at Mercy Hospital in Des Moines.

Please pray for Lynn, Pastor Cox, their family, and all medical personnel involved in the procedure (Hebrews 4:16).

Update(s) will be posted here as they are available.

Thank you!
