Please pray for Jan & Jim

bigorangevol(Nashville)November 17, 2007

I got this email message this morning from Jan:

"Just thought IÂd let you know. On Wed. we had to have AirEvac come in and fly Jim to Nashville to Bapt. Hospital. His heart was racing and I couldnÂt get a BP. By keeping him on a heart monitor they have been able to find out his problem. They are putting in a Defibrillator/Pace Maker on Mon. about 7AM. He will be in the hospital until Tues or Wed. ItÂs been a rough week for him. Please keep him in your prayers."

Guys please, please pray for Jim and Jan!

I'll try and relay information as I get it.

I just got off of the phone with Jim and he's doing better but he's bored. I talked to Jan and she's on the way back to Baptist Hospital from their house. Jim is in Room 5328 and you can call them at 284-5328. He can have visitors and I'm sure he'd appreciate hearing from you guys or having some company; just not a deluge of it. Short calls or visits would be best. You can always call me at 310-4155.

We just got back from the hospital and Jim is in really good spirits.

He is on Coumadin so they have to let his blood thicken before they can do the surgery. That's why they have to wait until Monday. Jim thinks that he's going home Tuesday but Jan thinks it's going to be Wednesday.

We'll probably go back out there tomorrow so I'll try and keep everyone abreast of the situation. They said that they really would appreciate everyoneÂs prayers.

Jeff,

Please let Jan & Jim know they're in my heart and my prayers. A pacemaker can make a huge difference -- I saw it with my mom.

Jim just got out of surgery and Jan said that the doctor told her that everything went fine. He'll be resting/sleeping until about 1:00-2:00. Lavonne and I will be going out there later this afternoon.

Wonderful! I praise God that everything went well. Jeff, please keep us updated.

We had our Thanksgiving today since the kids have to work Thursday. I'm stuffed, the bird is about gone, now for the sweats!

Love to all and may God bless you each and everyone with his loving Grace, Mona

We just left the hospital and Jan & Jim are going home today. Please remember to keep them in your prayers as Jim is going to have a sticky revovery process. Poor Jan has a hardheaded patient to deal with too; much like my better half does.

I appreciate everyone's concern and prayers. It has been a long week, hopefully we will both get a good night's sleep tonight. Now to decipher all the instructions about all his medicine...and keep it all straight.

Keep praying, it has only begun. Now they say he has congestive heart failure on top of all this.
