Life has this way of taking us on a journey that we never expected. Since my father died in March 2014, I've experienced occasional chest pains. Cardiologist visits and multiple tests didn't show anything significant, until this week. A December nuclear stress test indicated possible blockage in one or two arteries around my heart.  January 5, I had a heart cath procedure. It revealed a more significant problem with my heart. A 95% blockage in the Right Coronary Artery and a visit to a cardiothorasic surgeon has resulted in a scheduled triple bypass heart surgery on Monday January 11. It will be at Via Christi St. Francis Campus in Wichita. I am told that I will be hospitalized for a week, with up to 4 weeks of home recovery. God is completely sovereign and I know that none of this caught him by surprise. Although I have experienced fear and anxiety, I choose to trust our amazing God! He is faithful. Pray like crazy and if you come see me, feed me from God's Word. I need every living word for my soul!  Hebrews 4:12.
