"Secret Plan"

Heart thread - 10/20/2010 Updated

I ask your prayers for Marsha's brother Scott.

"His heart procedure (cardial ablation where dr. freezes one chamber of his heart to hopefully get it back into rhythm) is tomorrow in Salt Lake. It is about a 5 hour procedure and, as you might imagine, not without risk, plus he has been in arrhythmia intermittently for 5+ years so he is not going into this in the best of health. Our father died of this condition at age 57 so Scott is understandably anxious about it, as are all of us."
Today (Friday 10/22) I received this e-mail that I pass on to all who have joined in prayer. Thank you so much.

Fthr Paul,

I spoke with my brother last night.....he is recovering very well. His physician was most optimistic that the procedure was successful. While there is no doubt that man is highly skilled, I stand convinced that all the prayers were the primary contributor to this all coming to pass.

Thank you so very much for passing the need onto others.
