Prayer Request for David.

Saturday, April 26, 2014

For those of you who have been praying for Daniel and his team, they are now home as
of this past Wednesday. He said to thank everyone, that they believe all the prayers kept
them safe several times, as they had grenades go off less than 10 feet away and no one was

David is having heart issues. We had a stress test 2 weeks ago, which was not only useless but the Cardiologist said he was good to go, and he was still having chest pain, I freaked and called, they got him in the next morning.....he told the dr. he thought he needed a stent...so he said okay and scheduled him for a heart cath this past Monday.

To make a long story short, the dr. called in his cardio-surgeon, he said he cannot have any procedures or surgeries period. He said his odds, should he be forced to do surgery, would be less than 50-50 and he would have the whole family in because he does not think he will survive. His bypass artery is calcified, and he does not think he will be able to fix it. He said
"sometimes" the heart will grow around the block, so he is on a blood thinner and a pill to
treat his Angina....treating the symptoms in hopes the heart will repair itself.

So needless to say I am frantic...he has to lose 50 lbs.....to help his breathing. So my focus is on taking care of him and keeping him stress free and I am going to have to find some way to get all these bills paid off for stuff he bought thinking he would be doing work around the house....(not gonna happen)

The surgeon thinks we should not be riding the bikes, so it looks like we will go to the Harley dealer and see what he suggests we do, because we still owe on them too....got in 2010.

Please pray for him. He is close to our Lord, and believes he will be fine......
Please pray for me, to be strong and take care of him in whatever situation .....

Thank you and many Blessings,

    I am so thankful that Daniel is home and that he felt God's protection from our prayers.

    I will keep David in my prayers for God's divine healing touch.The heart is an amazing muscle. I so understand about taking care of hubby and trying to do everything else with limited money. (Don has been out of work now 6 months due to his issues)
    At any rate - Make sure to take care of you! I will be praying for God's grace for you and David, Daniel too!

    God Bless!

    Darlene, I'm so glad Daniel is home! I hate to hear what is going on with David, & I know you must be worried sick! I will pray for you all! God is Mighty & tells us not to be afraid but to give our worries over to Him. I know how easy that is right, but sometimes we have to give things to God continually sometimes every other minute. I just think how awesome it is that David is close to our Lord and that he is a man of God! That alone is all the difference in both your lives!
    Hugs & Prayers,

    Hi Darlene, I'm in Durham! I'm sorry to hear about your husband. But the thought occurred to me as I was reading, if the Lord protected him from a grenade, he can certainly handle a little ol' blocked artery. Right?

    My husband is only 50 and he had a scare 4 weeks ago. He thought he might be getting asthma (his older sister has asthma later in life, age 55) but when he went to the doctor, the doc called an ambulance to take him to the ER. He has multiple blood clots in both lungs. He's on blood thinners now for 3 months.

    We aren't in the military, my husband works at IBM here at home, I home school my son. Tell your son, from me, thank you for protecting my freedom?
