Home recovering...with a heart monitor....

I brought Aaron home from the hospital today, and he is doing very well.  Can you believe he had 2 major brain surgeries, the 2nd one just 4 days ago (Thursday).  I am reminded of the words to the song, He ain't heavy, he's my brother..." the road is long with many a winding turn......"  My band of many years ago sang this song often.  Yes, the road is winding and long... BUT you don't have to be on that road all by yourself.  The Lord Jesus-Yeshua, King, Creator of heaven and earth is willing to walk right along side of you.  He alone will give us strength for the journey.  So as you pray for Aaron's continued recovery please also pray that his heart is OK.  While in the hospital Aaron's heart would periodically beat very fast, known as tachycardia.  He has to wear a heart monitor for 30 days.  This device records his heart rate and is transferred to the Dr..  We will make an appointment with the cardiologist in 6 weeks to see if it has returned to normal.  Of course as you can imagine he was a bit discouraged to have to be tethered to this device, but again it is part of the journey.  The Dr wanted Aaron to start on a beta blocker but Dr. "FRED" (his father) convinced the Dr. to forgo the blocker for now and just wait for the initial results.  Apparently my appeal made a lot of sense.  Why use a blocker to "mask" the problem and then record the results.  Scary isn't it!!! I have a feeling Dr. Jesus has something to do with this (isn't he amazing).  WOW!  I can't wait until the heavens introduce the ONLY Lord of Lords and King of Kings.  It will be awesome.  Thanks so much for your prayers.  Please pray that his healing continues without any issues such as infection, seizures, pain, swelling. I will keep you posted. 

Love to all,
Fred, Donna, Aaron and the entire family.

  1. Aaron, you look marvelous! Praying the heart thing will straighten itself out all by itself, no drugs needed.
