My Father~

My dad was admitted to the hospital today~ My mom took him to the kidney specialist and he immediately sent him to the emergency room for an echo cardiogram. He spent the whole day having test done. He was finally admitted at 9:30 tonight. Mom is emotionally drained...My mom and dad have been together since they were teenagers. They met when my mom was thirteen and started dating when she was sixteen. They have been through a great deal and have been an example of how we must rise above our circumstances and how to rely on the Lord. They will begin doing dialysis on him tonight more than likely..Please pray. The vein did not lift up from his surgery for the shunt for the dialysis procedure so they will not be able to use that arm~ They will have to use the other arm and insert the needle each time..this is an extremely painful procedure the needle is very long. I am hoping and praying that they will give him something to numb his arm completely. I am trusting that our Lord who is the great physician will heal him and be there for him throughout this ordeal.
