Heart Surgery


Praise God for His grace and mercy! Our wonderful Lord has brought my dad through! I appreciate all your prayers for him (and me). He is doing great. He is still heavily sedated of course, and won't be allowed to "come out of it" until morning. His breathing tube was removed tonight and that was good news. I know he will be able to rest a little bit better.
We were a little worried about his kidney function, as he is diabetic and has had a problem with this previously, but all is well. Thanks be to God! I also appreciate your words of encouragement. I would have updated sooner, but I didn't get home until late.
It is a blessing to have friends like you! I love you all....

My dad is having open heart surgery early in the morning.(Tuesday) I would appreciate your prayers for him. I was with him while he was in the hospital last week for a heart cauterization. The doctor told him he would try to put stints in if he found any blockages, but sad to say, it was not possible. We were told he has 5 to 6 blockages and surgery is the only option. My dad suffered several heart attacks a few years ago and God was gracious to bring him through. I am still believing God's grace to continue.

There are no words I can say to bring peace to him. He is scared. Only God can give him the peace he seeks. Please pray that he will accept it.
