He Really is Mr. Amazing
I sure think it is time for a cheerful post! I have been really busy with my Dad's recent heart attack and surgery. After my last update, I was so happy to read all of the oh so wonderful comments and all of the great support from you. Thank you!
Yes, your prayers are good. My Dad had been having a heart attack that would not stop, and they did emergency surgery on him Saturday, January 5, 2013. The details are in this post here . After having another heart attack on the table they opened him up again, and then tried to stabilize him and sent him to an ICU room. Daddy stayed sedated and on a ventilator until Tuesday. He was slowly getting a little better.
Then on Wednesday, He flat lined at 11:00 am and it took over 2 minutes to bring him back, then he flat lined again at around 2:00 pm, then again at 3:00 pm. They manged to bring him back both times again.
As you can imagine, this was all very stressful and scared us all very much. He was aware of what happened and had many things he felt important to say to family members. We have had so much support with our prayer warriors, and by Saturday the 12th, one week since the surgery, they moved him out of ICU and into Coronary Care Unit. Seemed like a good day, and him and Momma even watched a football game between the Denver Broncos and the Ravens.
At 2:00 am I got a phone call that he was in trouble. Very difficult breathing with Pneumonia! I was at home over 30 minutes away. I managed to get to the hospital asap. Joining my mother and my dad's favorite cousin we gathered around him, praying nonstop. Also, many other family members praying from where they were.
My big strong Daddy was scared. My Mom was fragile and we were all doing our best. The medical staff did so many things to help get him breathing again, and he had been having irregular heart beat. I know that the All Mighty is just that, and performs His great works.
Daddy is breathing so much better. His heart has an outer pace maker and his heart is working hard to stay in rhythm. My mom is tired, but very happy.
Monday, Dad even was able to get up and walk 10 feet! He is such a fighter! And through it all He is sharing the Gospel. To everyone he comes in contact with. Also, he is telling jokes and keeping a very upbeat attitude.
Watching my Dad keeping such a positive attitude, fighting attitude , and having so much faith just makes me so proud!
He really is Mr. Amazing! I have to say, I am really proud of my Momma's strength, too! Mr. & Mrs. Amazing.
You are all in my thoughts and prayers. I am so blessed and thankful for my family and friends.
I love Prayer Warriors!!
The righteous person faces many troubles, but Yahweh (the Lord) comes to the rescue each time.
