We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers. ~1 Thessalonians 1-2
I know, I know, my usual posts appear only on Tuesdays and Fridays at Meditations of My Heart, but I have ample reasons for alerting you all to prayer needs that our family has right at this moment.
On Friday, my husband, Danny, is working out on the treadmill when he becomes light-headed. He stops the machine and promptly sits in a desk chair nearby. Then it happens His pacemaker shocks his heart! That hasn't happened once since he had the device implanted in 2017.
Rattled, we immediately call 911. The first responders show up pronto, praise God. Danny is assessed, then loaded into an ambulance for a trip to our local hospital in order to be treated and observed. We think, at the time, this might only be an overnight visit.
How wrong we are!
While in the ER, Danny experiences another shock. Doctors and nurses surround him immediately, determined to stabilize the situation. They are successful, but now it seem that Danny's predicament will require tests to find out what's causing this unseemly issue.
I see him today at the hospital (yes, I'm so surprised they are letting anyone in). He is in good spirits, and is hopeful as always. We learn the doctors will run tests (don't ask me what they are called) to see if there is an artery blockage or scarred heart tissue that is the culprit. We probably won't know until late Monday what these test results reveal.
In the meantime, dear friends, we need prayers! Please pray for the doctors' wisdom and Danny's full recovery from this unprecedented episode. He tells me he can feel the prayers of others, and now is the time to bombard our loving Father with our petitions. Feel free to pass this request on to folks in your church via prayer chains. The more, the merrier!
I will post an update this coming Tuesday on my regularly scheduled blogging day.
And thank you all, from the bottom of my heart, for all your love and support during this trying time.
