Asking For Prayer - Update!
Update - I went by the hospital today and Rich was sitting up and feeding himself. The ventilator and heart pump are gone! I don't know what the long term prognosis is, but I have to tell you, 2 days ago he had a massive stroke and today he was feeding himself his lunch! Keep praying!
Friends, may I ask prayer for a family we know?
Yesterday morning the dad in one of our co-op families, had a massive heart attack at age 49. He is on a ventilator and a heart pump to let his heart rest, but they are trying to wean him off the heart pump.
During his heart attack his heart completely stopped for quite a while and they had difficulty getting his heart started again. There is a danger that his brain has suffered damage, but when he woke yesterday after surgery he was able to squeeze the nurse's hand in answer to some questions. So they are hopeful.
They are concerned that if they are able to get him off the pump, that his heart could stop again. Don't know any more right now, but am asking you to please keep this family in prayer. Rich, Colleen and Peter.
I spent a good part of the day with them yesterday at the hospital along with another sweet couple from our co-op, as they don't have family in this area. I am hoping to get in tomorrow as well.
Thanks for letting me share and for lifting up this dear family in prayer! God is able!
