    Stress test this last Monday and Dr. called me in Tuesday to tell me the lower part of my heart is dead from a heart attack suffered a few years ago. Two Doctors told this had happened but did nothing about it. Now, that part of my heart is dead and then she said, the upper sections were not working correctly, very very weak. She believes I have almost total blockage. Said if I have another HA I will not make it back. So, I can't exercise (can't even jump to conclusions.) can't work on boat to speak of, can't do anything. EXCEPT, find a Dr. for a heart catheraration (no insurance, retired from ministry. 40 years preaching) to young for medicare or medicaid. Then determine if the balloon will work or if open-heart surgery will be mandated. I just was admitted to a program where Doctors from the area volunteer to treat patients for free and the hospitals provide the needed help.
    Please pray that I can last until we find that Doctor for the cath and the procedure. Thank you all.

    Joe,
    As a minister, you know that GOD won't lay more on you than he gives you strength to bear. Lean not on your HUMAN frailities but lay your burden on the LORD.
    May GOD bless you, my friend.
    Prayers are going up from here in Tulsa.

    Hi Dr.Joe :smile2:,
    We're glad that you're a part of our BOC family and able to share this burden with us. I have faith that the doctor you need will be provided for you sir. Meanwhile, we'll be sending positive thoughts and prayers on your behalf. Please let us know when you get everything arranged so that we might continue to lift you up throughout the catheterization procedure and recovery time. God loves you and so do we!

    Bless your heart! You hold your head up up and remember this verse:psalms 121: I will lift up my eyes to the hills-From whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord who made Heaven and Earth. Verse 3:He will not allow your foot to be moved;He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel Shall neither slumber nor sleep. Please take care and remember to keep us posted! We all care about you!:big_smile:

    Joe,
    As I sit here and ponder your situation, I would like nothing more then to be able to lift your spirits up with words. I am not sure if these short paragraphs will help or not, but my advice is this:
    Joe, You are currently enduring some of the most trying times any man could face, but how you choose to face it, will be the true testament of what you believe. What I mean by that, is instead of worrying about an outcome that you ultimately will not have control over, Spend your time remembering those and the things that you have grown to love over your lifetime. If at all possible don't look at the situation as an isolated one, remember that each and every one of our bodies must die before the Almighty himself will take our soul's to that special place that he has prepared for those of us who believe in his son's name!!!

    My thoughts and Prayers,
    Garrett
