Prayers to Heaven Please

Thursday, July 02, 2009

I am usually a person who tries to really be up at all times under all situations, but, this past Tuesday my Dad who is 76 years old suffered a severe heart attack and the prognosis does not look good at all.

My parents live in a very small town in rural New Mexico with no hospital, so my Dad was taken by helicopter over two hours away to the nearest hospital. My Mom talked to the Doctor yesterday who stated that Dad is very critical as his blood pressure is very low and he cannot breath on his own. When he got to the hospital they put in three stints to help with the blood flow. The Doctor stated that since there has not been any improvement within the first 24 hours it does not look good. He is heavy sedated and unconscious at this point.

I am having a really hard time with all of this! I just went to see my parents over the Memorial Day Week-end so for that I am glad that I got to visit with him in a better condition than he is today. My Dad's Mom died at the age of 56 of a massive heart attack, so it seems that bad hearts run in the family, or could it be the diet of the family. This has been on my mind for some time and the family health history and the diet. Reaching the ripe old age that my grandmother was at the time of her death has been foremost on my mind and was one of the catalyst for booting my booty in gear to change my lifestyle and diet and get healthy to hopefully stop this bad heart condition in my family history.

At this time for anyone reading this blog, could you please just stop and say a prayer for my Dad? I appreciate all of the support that all my friends at Spark have given me! Thanks so much for being here for me. LOL ~ Janel

    I understand rural New Mexico, we lived in Ft. Sumner for several years! I assume he is in Albuquerque? That's the best place he could be. I lost my dad to cancer almost three years ago. At least you did take the time to visit in better times. I had a wonderful visit with my dad three months before he died.

    Father, give my sister peace in her heart and comfort both her and her mother. Prepare their hearts for what lies ahead and be near to them. Give the doctors wisdom beyond what they have learned. Be with this father and hold him in your arms and close to your heart. Bring to them the people that they need to have around them at the very moments that they need them and may they know your love in a greater way. Amen.
    Love you sis. Lots of hugs and a shoulder to cry on.

    I pray for your fathers recovery. I pray that God will give you and the family comfort at this stressful time. I ask God to dispatch extra angels to watch over you and your family. Father God in the name of Jesus Christ touch every doctor, every nurse that is involved in his care. Annoint their hands. Heavenly father it is written in Psalms 91 and Matthew 6 in your word that you are our deliverer and we ask that you give every organ, every gland, every cell, every bone, every muscle, every ligament, in his body- total deliverence, total freedom, total liberty, and total salvation from all evil. In Jesus' name we pray. To God be the Glory. Amen!
