An Update and Special Thanks

As some of you know, at about 5:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 7, I experienced a cardiac event at home that resulted in me being transported to one of our local hospitals.  After several hours of observation, testing and consultation, it was decided that the wisest course of action was to transfer me to the Washington Hospital Center for a heart catheterization to get a clearer picture of what was happening.

The next day, Sunday, August 8, this procedure was done and the cardiologist discovered 2 arteries on the left side of my heart that were approximately 70-80% blocked.  They performed angioplasty on each of these arteries and placed a stent in each of them to take care of the situation.

I am grateful to God for the wonderful, professional care I received on the way to the hospital, at both hospitals, and the fine, caring people who attended to me during and following the procedure.  I am also grateful to my wonderful wife and family who were right there with me, lovingly caring for me.  And most importantly, I am deeply grateful to the Lord who graciously watched over me!

I am now at home resting and recuperating, and gaining strength day by day.  I am doing well and should be back to 110+% very soon!

I also want to thank all of you who have been praying for me.  Your love and prayers mean so much to us.  They are making a difference!

I’m looking forward to being back in full swing!
