The father of a dear friend of mine is very ill. He has been in the hospital for 3 weeks now after an unexpected cardiac event required open-heart surgery. Since then many complications, minor procedures, and multiple surgeries have kept him on machines and very incapacitated. His daughter (my friend) is the only relative nearby and is working to support him and pay for the insurmountable medical expenses he will now have. This will be a long road to recovery, both physical and financially, and he is nowhere near out of the woods. Please keep this family in your prayers and pray for miraculous healing.
