Urgent Prayer Request:
Last Tuesday, my dad went in for what we thought was going to be a routine procedure at the hospital, but to our surprise found out that he is going to be needing open heart surgery. As you can imagine, this was a huge shock to all of us. He will be checking into the hospital on Monday (5/9) at 8am and the surgery is scheduled to begin at 9am. Once the surgery begins, they said it will take a minimum of 5 – 6 hours. They know for sure there are 3 of his main arteries that are blocked right now but they are expecting to find more once they are in there and if so, they will fix those as well. After the surgery, he will remain in the hospital for 3-4 days and then need to stay at home and rest for a few months before he goes back to work.
Please keep my family and dad in your prayers. As if open heart surgery isn’t enough, we are still going forward with Pankaj and my wedding on May 28th so the stress level is even higher right now. Thankfully most of the wedding plans are already done and most of all we are thanking God that my dad went to the doctor when he did and that the blockage was found before anything even more serious happened.
Thank you for your prayers. I will keep you all posted on how the surgery goes and how his recovery process goes.
