    Default Needing your prayers and well wishes.

    Tomorrow morning my partner, George, will be under-going heart bipass surgery. I took him to the hospital today for what was to be a minor heart catheterization and they found too much blockage and admitted him immediately. He has a great surgeon and he fills all will be successful. George is doing well---much better than I am . I came home to take care of the dogs and get a few things to take back to the hospital. I just wanted to take a moment to aske for prayers. Thank You, Bill

    Bill--

    You & George have my prayers. I trust that all will go well, and God will be beside you both, and guiding the medical team as well.

    Bill, I will keep George in my prayers. The same thing happened to me four years ago and I wound up with a triple bypass. The first thirty days after my surgery were difficult but after three months I returned to work and felt great. I wish George a speedy recovery following his surgery. God bless.

    Bill, we will pray for your partner George. Everything will be fine. I understand how you must be feeling because I went through the same thing with my father, they had to operate immediately. He got 4 bypasses and now he is doing fine. Take good care of George, but also take good care of yourself during this process. May God bless you both.

    I wish both of you the best possible result from the procedure and a speedy recovery. Getting over major surgery is never easy, especially when you just want to feel well again, like now! I will be thinking of you Bill And George often. AL
