When I think of my dad I always think of the two things he told me throughout my life... He would pray for his family and friends to be "Happy, Healthy and Wise" and would tell us to repeat the same saying whether coaching a game or talking about a work day...”I THINK I CAN I THINK I CAN”
Now, I think he could use the same prayers he has given for others. He’s happy and he is wise, but we are asking for prays for his health.
My dad, Larry Martyn, has severe CTEPH (chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension) (https://health.ucsd.edu/specialties/cardiovascular/programs/pulmonary-vascular-disease/Pages/understanding-cteph.aspx
) and is scheduled for PTE (pulmonary thromboendarterectomy (https://health.ucsd.edu/specialties/cardiovascular/programs/pulmonary-vascular-disease/pte/pages/default.aspx
)) on May 22 2017. This disease is rare and until it affected our family we all hadn’t heard of it.
