Vicki's Husband. . .

Please pray. . .

My husband, Richard, had some chest pain when we were out and about this afternoon. I asked him about his symptoms, touched his arm, and realized he was pale, cool, clammy--not good. I got him to the car, all the while he's saying if he could just have a sip of my Sprite, his "indigestion" might go away. I told him that it might be more serious than gas pains or indigestion, but he refused to go to the emergency room because the pain subsided. Can you believe this?? I drove him all the way to the nearest hospital, yet he refused to go in. So I've been watching him like a hawk all evening.

Thankfully, he has a cardiologist appt. tomorrow (Monday) due to increased blood pressure this past week, and not feeling well. Just this past June 6th, he had open heart surgery to repair an aneurysm in his aorta, and also had a aorta valve replacement done. It blows my mind every time I think of how God protected him from that aneurysm rupturing. He also had surgery last year to remove melanoma from his scalp, along with a skin graft to the area. (It's time for a melanoma recheck....every 3-4 months now). Anyway the beta blocker he's taking for his blood pressure doesn't seem to be holding him right now.

Thanks for praying for us. I came here this morning --early-- and nearly cried to read some of the archived posts where you mentioned praying for us when we didn't even realize it!! Your faithfulness and sweet spirit just blesses me so much.

In His grace,
Vicki

Dear Father in heaven...we pray that You would take away the fear that Richard has and that You would help him to do that which is frighteningly overwhelming. That You would help him to get the medical evaluation and treatment he need. We thank you for Your hand of protection upon him and for Your provision of health care. We pray that You will continue to protect Richard. Give the doctor's great wisdom tomorrow. Help them to see exactly what is happening with his body and plan treatment. We pray that the doctors would find just the right medication to treat Richard. Help Richard to listen to his beloved wife. Give him Your peace and help him to trust you in the midst of these trials. Strengthen Vicki...and give her wisdom and peace. Go before them...and pour out Your love to them...may they be ever aware of Your presence. In Jesus name we pray...Amen
