So my dad got a stomach bug on Saturday night, he has been very sick... but we didn't think too much of it. Wednesday he got very weak and tried to drive to the doctor but ended up coming back home and calling my mom because he wasn't sure he could make it. He also started to have a numb arm and so he knew even though he didn't want to that he should probably go to the ER. So they admited him and said that he was very dehydrated from being sick for a few days and that his Kidney's were failing, which is common from dehydration. They were not dismissing his numbness but had to get the kidney's under control before doing a heart cath. So suprisingly today he has one, we weren't expecting it at all today, because we had no reports from his kidneys yet..... My dad called my sister to bring him a paper on her way to work and while she was there the doctor told them he was having a heart cath at 11:00 like an hour before hand. I was in Conroe going to do a little work and my mom was at a funeral for one of her students. So we finally all get there before the doctor gives us the results and..... the news wasn't as great as it had been in the past. He had stints put in twice already, 2000 and 2003. The doctor explianed to us that he had lots of blockage and that they were going to have to do a bypass. You see he had 90 % blockage in the main artery which would be to risky for a cath becasue where it is positioned, and the other arteries were also majorly blocked from 60-80%. He is having to have a triple bypass on Monday and then have to come back in a few months for his leg blockage. Please join us in praying for his irritabiity while in the hospital, no one ever wants to be there but this is not a choice, and for him to be very sweet to his nurses, he is not smoking obviously and they can't give him a patch so he's just a little on edge. Please pray for my mother to have comfort and strength during this scary time. Thank you Jesus for saving my dad and for giving him the signals that something was indeed wrong.
Serenity Prayer
God grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can, and Wisdom to know the difference.
Thy will, not mine be done
