As most of you know, I've been dealing with some health concerns over the past year and those, coupled with lack of energy from trying to maintain my full time work status and deal with my health at the same time, have kept me from being as active on Passions as I'd like to be. A visit to my physician last week, after dealing with being tired all the time, increasing blood pressure, and on-and-off chest pain for over a year, and a follow-up EKG has proven to be bad news. My EKG shows significant changes in the form of inverted T-Waves (significant for Cardiac damage) and Q-Waves (which my doctor feels is probably due to a recent heart attack or MI). I'm currently waiting for an appointment with a cardiologist who will order a strss test and then probably another cardiac catherization and what ever else it takes to correct what ails me. At 39, with one kidney and being primary bread earner for my family, this all concerns me greatly.
I just ask that you all hold me in your prayers right now and hopefully this is something that can be corrected with medication and won't require me to be off work for any length of time or cardiac surgey ( a major fear of mine).
Thanks,
Ruth

Oh Ruth ... I'm so sorry to hear this.  I hope the tests will point to a change in medication and not surgery. Take care of you ... Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Hugs,

Let this be our prayer
When shadows fill our day
Lead us to a place
Guide us with Your grace
To a place where we'll be safe


I believe that Jesus will guide you into a place of safety and comfort, my friend. I"ll be praying for you!

Most of us go to our grave with our music still inside of us.

Thank you everyone, your prayers mean more than you can imagine. With the upcoming holidays, my appointment with the Cariologist is set for two weeks Dec 12. Hopefully I'll know more then.

Ruth,  you certainly have my prayers.....

I know that all of the uncertainty can bring
out a lot of stress....which you surely do
not need to add to anything else...

Try to rest,  knowing that all will work out,  even though some tough days may stare
you in the face...

Best to ya,  and hang in there....OK?

Ruth,
You are in my prayers for all the physical challenges facing you, praying that you will not have complications to your life or your income. May you be blessed with courage, peace and good health. May the holidays lighten your heart.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.
