    Default OT: Prayer Request

    Friends, my beloved 83-year-old father was admitted yesterday to the hospital for chest pains, and we received the shocking news today that he needs six-hour open-heart surgery tomorrow (Thursday) in St. Louis. I will be with him and with family for a time.

    Prayers welcome and greatly appreciated. I will keep you posted.

    Certainly. I pray for his health; endurance, comfort, peace, resilience, and his bodys total healing in a rapid manner. I pray for you; your heart, your anxiety, your husband, your children, your mom and the rest of your family. I pray for his doctors; their hands, minds, focus, clarity and staffing. I pray for time in every sense that it is needed.

    Please do, keep us posted. (Bear hugs)

    St John of God, pray for us!

    Prayers for you and your father. I have had 2 open heart surgeries. I will keep him in my prayers as he recovers as well. If you have any questions about the recovery process I am happy to tell you about it.

    Thank you all. My dad is out of surgery. All went well. We get to see him soon.

    Katie, we're at Mercy in St. Louis. You are so sweet. Thank you for the offer. We're taking little breaks at the Mercy cafeteria, which is quite nice, so we will be okay today. I love this hospital -- Twenty-third Psalm over the intercom comforted my dad last night.

    Thanks for prayer, everyone.

    Amen. I'm sure the road to recovery is daunting. Prayers for continued recovery and healing. Continue prayers for comfort and strength for you all.

    Praise be to God! Continued prayers for healing!

    Oh Im glad you are at Mercy! I love that hospital. I spent several weeks there on bedrest and then 7 weeks in the NICU when my twins were born. The staff is excellent and you are right, the cafeteria is great for a hospital! You all are in great hands!

    Thank you all. My dad is doing fabulously.

    Deemed "The Ideal Patient," after his triple bypass yesterday he sat up for breakfast this morning, smiled easily, and had us all laughing with his lighthearted humor (that we so hoped and prayed we would hear again). He asked the cardiologist just when, exactly, he will be able to play golf, and is prepared to do whatever is necessary to get well as quickly as possible.

    We sang the Doxology in his room this morning, and he added his deep, sonorous "Amen" at the end.

    We are so thankful to everyone for your prayer and concern.

    I will sift through your busy forum posts on Monday to see if I missed anything, but I learned something over the past few days: We have a strong, supportive Team on the Simply Classical Forum. Very satisfying to see.

    Thank you.
