HOPE

Last night my parents met with the lead heart doctor at St. Luke’s Hospital.  The prognosis for my dad is not good.  I’m just going to be honest…she said my dad has less than three months to live.  Next week he’ll be going through lots of testing to see if he qualifies for a heart transplant.  Heart transplants can take up to two years to get…so until then this is what he is getting.  It gives me so much hope, but we have to make it through it.

Here is a video that gives you an idea of what we’ve been going through and are about to go through.  My dad has the exact same thing this young girl has…he will be getting a heart pump to hopefully keep him going these next few months.  The doctor in the video is my dad’s doctor too.  The surgery is major heart surgery.

We are so thankful for all of you who are praying for us.  Keep them coming!  These next few months are going to be crucial.
