Prayer Request

It's been a crazy day for me. My husband has been having some problems with being more tired than usual lately, and occasionally being short of breath. Being a man, he didn't listen to me when I told him to go to the Dr. When he started having chest discomfort this morning in church, I told him we were going to ER now! He still resisted and was worried about doing something during the second service, that he had committed to. I made him leave anyway. His family has some heart history, and although he is only 49 and is not overweight, nor does he smoke, I don't want to take chances. The tests they have done so far look good. They admitted him to the cardiac unit where they are monitoring him and he will have a stress test in the morning. I know some of you have heard about this through my sisters and friends blogs and have already been praying, along with our friends from church. Thanks for your prayers and keep it up! Our God is the great healer and provider and we have faith in him to see us through this. I have felt his strength today!
One way God took care of us today was shown when our regular Dr came in. He spends 12 hours a month being on call, and staying right at the hospital. We "happened" to be there during those 12 hours. It also "happened" to be my weekend off, so I was in church with Bob. I know he wouldn't have gone in if I wasn't there. Bob also has had a cardiologist assigned to him and I have been told by a friend who is a nurse in the CCU that this is one of the best cardiology doctors on staff. Thank you Lord for the ways you look out for us!
PS - I hope you will excuse me from commenting on your blogs for a few days. I think my computer time will be quite limited! :)

Mari- PRAISE GOD for the good reports thus far. I am praying now and will continue praying in the morning that further tests (exercise stress test included) will come back clean.

THANK YOU for getting him to the hospital when you did. THere's never a good reason to procrastinate with medical care.

Praying for you-

Thank you for posting an update. Mark and I didn't even realize that something had happened this morning. Mark was wondering where Bob was for Men's SS. I am glad you made him go. This is nothing to "wait and see" about. I pray that all will go well tomorrow and if there is something the doctors need to see that it will be clear for them so they can treat him. I also pray that you have peace through all of this and that you are able to get a good nights sleep without Bob home.
Love you both.
Smiles!

It's much better to get things checked out and find nothing serious wrong than the other way around. It's always good to get a good "heart" report. I too pray you'll be able to sleep tonight.

Karen said...

Mari,

You know I will miss your sweet daily words of encouragement, but I know you are needed by the side of your other half. Keep him happy and keep the faith my friend. I can't wait to hear more God-coincidences that He has planned for you. Keep your eyes open for His hand at every turn.

Praying, praying, praying for you guys.

Love, Joanne
