My Cousin
« on: October 17, 2012, 05:45:20 AM »
I'd like to humbly ask for your thoughts and prayers for my cousin Terry. He's in the hospital. He's been on dialysis (he was born with only one kidney, a horseshoe/fused one), he's just had a heart attack, and he has an aneurysm. If he's strong enough, they'll be doing surgery Thursday.

Compound this with the fact that he's also pretty close to broke before this happened.

He's not at death's door yet, but times aren't great.

Lord, have mercy.
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

Lord have mercy.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

An update:

The open heart surgery went well. They fixed the aneurysm and put in a pig valve. He'll be in ICU for a few days, but he should recover fine.

Thank you so much for your prayers. Please continue them.
