Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesuschrist,
We feel grateful with God amongst the suffering because we know he is here with us. He has a purpose for everything that happens in our life.
On December 27, 2015, we came to Florida to receive a second opinion regarding Emerson’s health because in Nicaragua he was having angina pain and also he couldn’t urinate because an enlargement in his prostate. A week before traveling to the US, the doctor in Nicaragua put a catherder. He traveled to Florida with a catherder.
He visited the doctors here in the US for his enlargement in his prostate and after many tests, the doctors recommended him to get an open heart surgery. He ended up having a quadruple bypass on January 20. It was a difficult surgery but thanks to God according to the doctors, it was a successful surgery. We give thanks to God for his surgery.
Days later, on January 30 we found out through a mega test he took that there were some complications because of the surgery; he has a weak heart with irregular heartbeats and he needs to stay in the hospital for a while because he has knee problems (arthritis in his knees) so it is hard for him to walk and also his blood pressure goes down every time he sits down. The doctors are trying to help him and figure out how they can help him so that he can recovers soon and go to a rehab center. As of today, we don’t know when he is going to be discharged and moved to rehab center. When he recovers, the doctors are recommending for him to wear a LIFE VEST for three months and not return to Nicaragua until he fully recover.
I have been living in a vacation condo from a friend in Delray Beach, Fl. while Emerson is in Delray Medical Center. I am going to continue living here for one more month. If God permits, I may move to a house close to a Christian community. The loaner car we have now, I have to return it February 9. Since I am going to be here for a while, I need a car while Emerson is in the hospital and rehab center. Please prayerfully consider helping find a loaner car.
Since I’ve been here, Seacrest Presbyterian Church pastors has reached out to me, they came to the hospital to pray for Emerson and read the Bible and give us communion. I am thankful to have this spiritual community. This is going to be my spiritual home for the rest of the months I am going to be living here. Seacrest Presbyterian Church may help us find a home to live here.
Please know that our ministries continue under the leadership of Xochil Wilson and Pastor Richard Fuentes.
