Update on Patrick
Patrick called me this morning from the hospital in Texas. It was SO good to hear his voice. We talked for quite a while and he explained exactly what the surgeon has to do and why they couldn't do it via the heart cath. He has two blockages and one is in a very dangerous area ~ in the main artery at the top of the heart and very close to the heart. So, Monday they will do the open heart surgery and he will then have a lengthy recovery period. I felt so much better after talking to him and hearing his positive attitude. I talked with him again early this evening and I will talk with him again tomorrow. They are giving him a special medication to keep his blood thin so he will not bleed during the surgery.
Again, I want to thank each of you for your prayers. I appreciate it SO much as I truly believe in the power of prayer.

Audrey, I am so glad you got to speak with your brother and that he is positive, that goes a long way in how he responds to the surgery and recovery. I will keep you all in my prayers.
