Prayer please

Picture taken in October at the fair with Paw Paw.

Hey it is Sharon-
Just wanted to take a moment and let ya'll know what is going on so that I can ask for prayer.
On Saturday afternoon we realized that something was going on with paw Paw
that was not right.
Short of breath and very agitated and could not sleep.
We called the doctor and were told to take him to the hospital.
I thank God that within about 10 minutes of reaching the emergency room he was being monitored, blood was being drawn along with ex rays being taken.
We were told that he had fluid in the lungs and that his heart beat was off.
And then told us that he was going into congestive heart failure.
They had to shock his heart twice to get the beat back to normal.
Very upsetting and scary.
He is in ICU now and they will let us know today if he had a heart attack.
Also they will take him into surgery and change the battery in his pace maker.
I will let ya'll know as I find out more info.
But please pray.
Thank you--I knew I could count on you.
Your Sis

I'm praying for PawPaw and you. I can say I know what you are going through because I am going through it right now with dad.

Awwh! Jesus please wrap your arms around Paw Paw. Help him be ready to meet You if that is to be the end result of this ordeal. Comfort his heart and mind and soul. Give the doctor's wisdom. Surround his family that they may minister to Paw Paw as You minister to their spirits. Be in this whole situation. May Your name be glorified throughout the whole ordeal. We ask for healing if it be Your will. We ask for Your blessing to be upon all involved. Steer them, guide them, surround them and comfort them through this time. We know that You love Paw Paw and his family with an everlasting love. Thank You. Amen.

Thanks for letting us know. I'm glad I checked in with hubby's laptop- our main computer is still not working as I don't know how to set it up right now that our floors are done. Wish I had email right now to keep in contact with you about Paw Paw. I will certainly join my sisters and pray for you all.

I just prayed and asked our heavenly father to let His spirit settle on you to free you from anxiety and give you a peace. Bless you and Paw Paw. (Hugs!)- Tiff
