Im asking my SP friends to please be in prayer for my Daddy. He had a heart attack last night, thankfully we were in er when his heart went into arythmia(?) and they did compressions as well as used the paddles on him to bring him back to us! He will be having open heart surgery Monday, they found 5 blockages today during heart cath. One was 100%, one 99% and the others were 80 to 90%! We are so blessed to still have him with us!
My daddy is a quiet somewhat shy man with a great sense of humor! He was a little outnumbered in our home because there was my Mama and 4 daughters to contend with everyday! We have all given him 8 grandchildren (6 boys and 2 girls) and he enjoys every one of them! He has been more concerned with his pets back at the house than he has been for himself! (i made sure they were fed!) My daddy is only 72 years young but looks 10 years younger to me! He has always enjoyed good health, except for the occasional gout! This has really thrown him for a loop because he didn't realize his heart was in such bad condition! He was in the hospital back in August for chest pains and he passed stress test with no problems, echocardiogram didn't show anything, so they didn't do cath. Hindsight is 20/20! If only they could have taken care of this then,me, one of my sisters and my mother wouldn't have had to witness that awful scene in the er and daddy would be healed by now! But God was watching out for him and gave him an awesome er staff to work on him! I was so I impressed with the way they handled him!
Thank you for your prayer!
