Hello to everyone out in blogland! I missed being able to keep up with all the news out there and interacting with all of you.
We had a wonderful trip to MI and CA visiting family and attending my nephew's wedding.
Our daughter and family have settled in a lovely city of CA and have a few core families to help them with their church planting. They rent a church bldg. on Sundays and Wednesday night. They have much work ahead of them and are happy being in the Lord's will.
We arrived home in the early hours of Wed. and hubby went back to work and the routine began again. I had unpacking, laundry to do, plus a huge stack of mail to go through. The next day I did some outside work on the lawn and weeding the flower beds. Hubby and I retired around 11:00 that night and little did we know that our world was about to change.
He woke me around 1:00 and was in obvious pain and distress. I called the EMS and he was taken to the hospital. A heart cath. was done and the news, frankly blew us away. He had 5 major arteries blocked. All above 90 %. One at 100% that they declare as dead. He did not suffer a heart attack though.
Now we are talking about a man who's heart rate is that of a runner, blood pressure is great, has kept his weight near perfect, and all the testing that they did came back negative. He has taken nutrition for 30 years, to boot and his cholesterol is fine. This is a man who just walked around Disney Land and a neighboring park for 14 hours.
They could not put a stent in any of the arteries and surgery is his only option. They say this can be largely to do with genetics. It does run in his family.
We know our God is sovereign and makes no mistakes and as he faces open heart surgery tomorrow (Tues. 21st) we would appreciate your prayers on his behalf.
I'm not sure when I will post again but I will try to inform you of his progress some time by week's end.
Thanks for your prayers.
