Default Prayers Needed

I just got a call from Todd. He is on the way to the hospital in heart failure. Please put him on your prayer list, or think good thoughts for him.

I will let you know more when I know.

Luanne

How very sad. I hope Todd recovers fully. We don't need to lose Todd.

We would lose him, & miss him, but I get the feeling Todd is prepared & maybe even ready to leave us, especially considering his strong beliefs. He must miss his wife dreadfully.

Wishing Todd only the very best. Hopefully his strength will help him through. Cardiac failure is something we've lived through the past several years in our family.

The combination of toughness of character and the many advances in medicine, make chances very good.

I do feel very bad for him that he doesn't have more support from family and friends close by.

Luanne, thank you so very much for posting this most shocking news, we were in email contact with Todd only last week, chatting about his plans for a visit to the UK in 2012/13


Please, please pass on our very best wishes to Todd, we are both praying and rooting for him to make a full recovery.

We had already promised Todd that we were going to light a church candle for Fran on the 15th whilst we are away, and will also have a moment of prayer for him.

All my best for Todd and I'm wishing him a good outcome. Hopefully they will be able to correct what's going on.

That incident the other days where his heart "stopped" has me concerned.

No matter what I hope Todd is soon back with us and feeling better.

Take care,
Mike

I still have not heard anything. I tried to call but got the machine.

This time was worse, because he hit the floor, so his head might be an issue.

Will keep everyone informed.

Okay, This is what I know. He just called, and said he is in ICU, and they are running tests. He says to thank everyone for the prayers and good wishes.

He has not seen Dr. Jeff, but he should be in to see him tonight, after the tests are done.

Ray, I told him you called, so he is going to call you.

I will let you all know if I hear anything else.

HUGE HUG from over the pond.
