Posted on 09/24/2013 3:58:05 AM PDT by Kaosinla
I apologize if I'm not posting this correctly, but I kindly request any prayers that you might offer for my Dad. About six weeks ago, my Dad went to the Cardiologist (after months of feeling increasingly sluggish). It turned that a previous lingering cold gave him a heart infection that (although gone at the time) reduced his heart function dramatically. ..to about 15%. They gave him a vest that acted as a defib and compression to strengthen the heart. He was feeling much better but last night he exhibited heart attack symptoms and was rushed via ambulance to the hospital. All of his tests came back normal, but right before he was going to transferred for observation he went into cardiac arrest and lost consciousness. He was shocked eight time before coming back to us. He awoke and didn't remember anything and they gave him sleeping meds and oitment for the burns...his temp was hypothermic and blood pressure way down. Right now, it just waiting and the docs really can't make any prognosis. I live away from all of my family and waiting just for an update is excruciating. Needless to say there has been no sleep tonight and I got the first flight out at noon.
Sorry for the long story, but you folks are a home away from home and it's just the wife and I here.
Prayers for your father and for safe travels for you.
God bless him. In the name of our healing Master Jesus Christ, may his faith bring him comfort and health.
Prayers lifted...may your father find healing...may you and your family find strength and comfort...
Know that the Lord is behind you to encourage you, above you to watch over you, beside you to befriend you and in front of you to show you the way. Safe travels FRiend.
Oh my! You and your dad have my prayers, Kaosinla! I’ve been there. Same thing happened to my husband, though his was not quite as bad. I know the fear and the waiting and the prayers that the lifevest would not go off.
May God grant him healing and you and your family peace.
Prayers up for your Dad’s recovery, and for the entire family.
My prayers are with you and your family.
Lift your father and you up in prayer. In the name of Jesus Christ may your father be healed, we ask for wisdom for the Drs and those that are treating him and Gods peace that passes all understanding for you.
Prayers on the way!
Praying for your Dad.
Prayers for both of you.
I am with you. How old is your dad?
Prayers up for you, your father, hope mercy and comfort.
Oh it’s very hard not to be there! Jesus let your peace that passes all understanding be with Kaosinla and all family members right now as they hope and pray for their Dad. Fill his body with strength, health and new life in the hospital. We pray for traveling mercies as Kaosinia and other family members travel there, smooth connections and kindness of strangers.
Sorry to hear about your dad. It's just not easy to watch a parent have to go through the inevitable effects of aging/declining health.
The Lord's peace be with you.
Prayers being sent now. Be comforted in God’s plan.
