Prayer Requests & Praises

Appointment Rescheduled

Thanks for your prayers. Today my appointment for tomorrow’s angiogram was rescheduled for next Friday 1/19. Again, I won’t know what time until the day before. My dear sweet daughter and one of her kids will be arriving here shortly. It was too late for her to reschedule her plans so I guess we are going to watch movies and PARTY!!! I can take this rescheduling in stride because I know God is in ControlĀ Ā And I’m still enjoying being in regular sinus rhythm after our church group prayed for me last Sunday morning in church! Thank you, dear Pastor!, church family!! and all the rest of you dear Saints!


I’m having an angiogram onĀ Friday 1/12. I don’t know what time until the day before. Even after two cardio-versions recently, my heart went back into Atrial Fib a week ago = 12/30/17. The great news is that as of last evening (1/7/18) I’m back in normal rhythm!!! (Thank YOU, LORD!)Ā  Pray we are able to make all the necessary connections to get our daughter from the SacramentoĀ  airport to hereĀ on Thursday.Ā  Thank you!Ā 

Back in Atrial Fib

I’ve been back in Atrial Fib since either last Friday night or early Sat AM…regular rhythm didn’t last long – 12/19 – 12/29 or 30.

I saw my cardiologist this afternoon. He wants an angiogram done next week and added a med to slow down my heartbeat..I believe the angiogram will be next Friday, 1/12. He saw the Lexiscan and says there is a blockage. He wasn’t in town so the Tech sent him a picture of my heart, that’s why he had a partner meet with me later that same day, 12/15. The partner did tell us at that time, I had a large blockage and actually “multiple blockages.”

Hoping my daughter’s schedule will allow her to come and wait with her Dad while I have my procedure. We’d appreciate your prayers for God’s perfect will to be done! I know He’s in control.
I never thot I’d be having heart trouble – except maybe a broken heart or two as a young personĀ 

GREAT NEWS, my cousin in AZ had her brain tumor surgery yesterday. The surgeon was 95% sure the tumor is benign! Waiting for Pathology to confirm. There’s another ‘black spot’ on the MRI – at the back of the brain. They will just watch that one for now. She still needs an operation on that severely broken leg and has to be off of it totally for 3 mos! Pray for Kathy and her dear husband!

This past year has been full of it for affliction and frustration, but God has seen us through! Many of you have seen much worse! It’s so good to have a Sovereign God Who loves us!!! I’m choosing to keep my heart and faith resting in Him!
