Dear Hubby has a pacemaker (along with a laundry list of repair parts and surgeries) that needed the lead to be replanted. It had come undone. Not common but OK, things happen. A simple open up and fix case that should take 30 minutes. 3 hours later he is closed up and having to look at some other ideas. It seems that Dear Hubby has so much scar tissue on his hear they could not find a soft spot to place a new lead. The old one would not release either. So over night stay and doing it all over again in the morning.
This is his heart surgeon and medtronic rep looking things over. A team who are not to proud to be on their knees at all! After trying all night to figure out a different approach they are in the same position as before. So just open up and start all over again. They both told us how they prayed over the situation. I am a firm believer that Doctors are strong prayer warriors. They see miracles all the time. Currently they are in looking at Dear Hubby and trying to find that one spot that will work. Wait, there is the phone now.....
Cover via AmazonYES! They did find it. Just the 30 minutes today to do what was needed. The Doctor said that it was an oddball place to put it. But it works and the pacemaker seems to be responding quite well. Thank God! So closing him up and will have him up in a room in just a moment. I will be waiting up there when he is done. Now is time to keep waiting. Funny as I have been reading a book by a doctor right now. Chauncey W. Crandall IV, MD is a cardiologist. Yeah, can you believe it. And this man believes in miracles. Let me tell you more while I am waiting on Dear Hubby to make it out of recovery.
In Raising the Dead, Dr. Crandall tells how he has seen God at work. That he feels power and guidance as he has preformed surgeries time and time again. And better yet, he has looked into the eyes of patients to see life well up inside of them as they have literally been brought back from the dead. I have to thank PJ of PJ's Prayer Line for this book. I won it in a blog review and it is really something that is helping me right now. Hey, Dear Hubby is going back to his room now. I will post a photo on here of him too...just let me get up there and see how he is doing.
