A small prayer request

I just wanted to ask for your prayer for my brother and his family.  My sister-in law is pregnant with their second baby and due around the end of May.  Everything was going pretty well this time until she started having what they thought were anxiety attacks.  She was transferred to a high risk OB, and they found out that she is actually having mini strokes.  Luckily the baby is still looking good,  and medicine seems to be controlling the strokes, but she will need to go in for surgery to repair the damage that has been done to her heart.
To top off the worries, the surgery needs to be done within 8 weeks of the baby being born, for her to be covered under Oregon Health (they don't have insurance), and my brother has been told that his job is safe until June, but they can't make any promises after that.
There isn't much I can do right now for them, but I thought that a few extra prayers might help!

Praying hard for them! Is there anything else we can DO? What field is your brother in?

Good luck and God bless!

Partly we are just waiting till they know when she'll have the baby, and when they are doing the surgery so we can figure out who can help when to get them the most help.

My brother is in Computer tech stuff, but the problem is that his wife doesn't want to leave the area where her family is and there isn't much work available there.
