Please Say A Prayer for my Sister

My sister Donna had a heart attack early yesterday afternoon and her husband rushed her to the hospital. She’s ok and they are keeping her in the hospital for a few days to monitor her to make sure that she doesn’t have another one.

Donna recently found out that she is going to have to have heart surgery to repair the main heart valve that was destroyed by radiation that she underwent over 20 years ago to fight breast cancer. A couple of years ago she found out that she would have to have heart surgery at some point in the next few years to repair this valve. The surgeons were hoping that it she’d be ok for a few years & at the time surgery wasn’t necessary. After having a heart spell a few months ago & ending up in emergency she learnt that she’d have to have the heart surgery within the next few months.

Donna’s been undergoing various Pre-Op testing to determine what needs to be done to repair this heart valve. Hopefully this heart attack doesn’t slow down the surgeon setting a date for her surgery. I know how anxious she is to get this over & done with so that she can get on with her life.

Could you also say a prayer for Donna’s husband & their two beautiful daughters (& their families) who are having a really difficult time watching Donna having to go through all of this.

Thank you so much for your prayers. I know that prayers help and we need all the help we can get to help Donna get through this recent heart attack & her upcoming heart surgery.
