Bigdog - Prayers please.

Postby lildog » Tue Dec 18, 2007 8:24 pm

Dad will no doubt kill me for this, but I don't really care. Some of you know he's been dealing with a heart arrhythmia for several months now. Well, the doctors are finally going to do something about it (insurance issues and way too many doctors involved in the case are mostly to blame).

He goes in tomorrow morning to, in his words, "get a jumpstart." It's an outpatient procedure and apparently fairly routine. All the same, it's still his ticker...

Please include him and Mom in your prayers for a successful procedure and and a speedy recovery. Thanks.

Thoughts and prayers are definitely coming from this end of the state for a speedy recovery. Hearing about positive results such as Joe mentioned is always welcome news.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Give him our best. He mentioned it might happen this week, guess he was right. We'll be thinking about him. Be sure to give us an update afterwards?
