Update on Daddy and his heart
To all my dear friends,
Your thoughts and prayers mean more to me than you will ever know. This has been really bad. My dad had been having an on going heart attack for three days. They had to do emergency surgery. He was in surgery for 7 hours. He had three bypasses. As soon as they closed him up he had another heart attack. They opened him again. They did their best to stabilize his heart rhythm. The surgeon came out and told us that he was only one step above death. It was the worse news possible. I have never been at a low any worse than this ever.
But my dad is the strongest and most faithful man I have ever known. He is a very great man, and if anyone has a direct link to the heavenly Father. I know he does. They went ahead and put him in his ICU room, let my mom and oldest sister go be with him. The surgeons, started becoming amazed. They said they had no reason to understand why he was living. He has been slowly improving. It is still very critical. But this morning he finally woke up. It is Monday and the surgery was Saturday. He is on a ventilator, and they are doing everything they can for him. But he is fighting and improving!
Praise GOD!! HalleluYah!
Prayer is what is keeping my dad alive. The doctors said there was no way he could be any worse, but he is improving. The doctors have just been calling him Mr. Amazing! He is going to be having a long road ahead of him. But he has a road ahead of him. My family is very tired. But we have all stood in prayer and faith and are so thankful for the amazing people that love us, love my dad, and love our creator.
Your prayers do make a huge difference. Trust in Him. Keep Him in your hearts. Love Him always. He will never let you down. Please, I ask to keep my dad in your prayers. He is 74. Tomorrow is my sweet mothers 73rd birthday, She is so in love with my dad, and constantly by his side. Pray for her strength and courage and health, too. I really need prayers from you all. This is the toughest challenge of my life. My daddy is my rock. He is my first love.
Thank you all so very much. I love you, too. May God bless each and every one of you.
