An old member is in dire straights

Whether the need is great or small, there is power in prayer, especially when God's people raise their voices together.

An old member is in dire straights

Postby The Annoyed Man » Fri Aug 18, 2017 6:31 pm

For those of you who remember wgoforth, he had been struggling with cardiac issues, and hasn't been active here for about 3 years. I believe that he's been put on a transplant list. Anyway, he had a port in place for getting medication, and it apparently the tube slipped out of place in the vein in his chest. He was to have surgery today to reposition it, I believe today. According to his wife, who used his Facebook account to post this update, he had a respiratory arrest followed by CPR compressions to bring him back. He is alive and on a respirator, but unconscious at this time. She doesn't know if he is aware of her presence or not, but he's apparently holding his own.

Please pray for him and for his family. His wife is really scared right now.

Prayers sent, praying for recovery, as well as the friends and family. It's very hard to deal with the sight and presence of a loved one, who is non responsive.
