Request from Linda Donovan: Her nephew (59 years old) in St. Mary’s due to a stroke and doctors had to put him in a medically induced coma to keep his blood pressure down. He has been in a coma for 5 days now and losing feeling in some of his body. Your prayers are needed and appreciated.
Joe Messenger procedure went very well. Doctor said stent opened main artery 100%. Joe is back in his room and expected to be released Friday. Praise God.
Update on Joe Messenger: Joe is being moved to Memorial Regional in Mechanicsville today Wed. 10/19. There is only one doctor that will try and insert a stent in a totally blocked artery. Procedure will be done Thursday and hopefully home Friday. Was unable to have a bypass because of where the blockage is. Doctors said all the news from the tests they ran was positive and that his heart is healthy. Please continue to pray for Joe and Fran and for the doctor, nurses and all who will be taking care of him.
Just got a text from Joe: “MRI says heart healthy, procedure tomorrow, home Friday. God is good!” His spirit is well. Thank You Jesus.
