Good morning folks and a blessed Monday to all. Below is a status from my cousin Emoy regarding her husband Tony’s condition. As in the past, I ask that you please continue to keep Tony in your prayers, as well as Emoy and their children. Thank you all so very much.
Good Morning Connie,
Just wanted to give you an update on Tony. As you may remember we were going to back to Gainesville for a follow up. As you may already know. After our visit, he started feeling bad, he was short of breath, very tired, not sleeping, not eating, retaining a lot of fluid around his lungs, abdomen and neck. All of these signs are conclusive to heart failure. The doctor decided to admit him for another complete workup for reevaluation for heart transplant. He was in the hospital for 4 days, where they did “everything” and checked all of his other organs. At the same time, they drained 6 lbs of fluid. He came back a new man – Thank God. They have made some changes in his medications, diet, etc… We have a consultation appointment on Dec. 22 – for all the results and the prognosis. There are trying all means to delay a transplant due to all the other complications that that has. There is a new device that came out called a Ventricular Assistant which is a battery operated “machine” that he will carry outside his body. It’s basically a motor that continues pumping his heart. That is an option that the doctor slightly talked about. It sounds like a great option for Tony and I. However, we need to get the results from the doctor. Please keep us in your prayers. Your network is a great tool and very powerful. I will continue to update you a on this “blessing” that allows us to look at life in a different way and keeps us closer to each other every moment that we are together.
Thanks again for your concerns and constanct prayer. God Bless,
And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.

I have been driven many times to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go.
