Oh the journey we have been on! It all started on Oct.31, 2017 when Louis had a cardiac arrest, respiratory failure and was down for 8 mins. While at the hospital, it was discovered Louis has blocked arteries. Two stents were put in and a week later home we go. 4 days later, Louis is back in the hospital with pulmonary edema and we were told Louis has hypercoagulable blood. The stents clotted and another set of stents had to be put in. Another week stay at the hospital and home we go again followed by visits to the cardiologist, hematologist and coumadin clinic. On the 3rd week home, 911 was called and trip 3 to the hospital began that changed our lives. Louis' white blood cell count was high, water in his lungs again, another cardiac arrest with respiratory failure, kidney and lung failure. He had to be put on a medically paralytic state with life support. I dont know the plan God has in mind BUT I do know its a good plan. Walking by faith and not by sight became very real! The verse that came to mind was Job ch.2 specifically when Job tells his wife in verse 10; "Should we accept only good things from the hand of God and never anything bad?” I became the praying wife who praised God for his unfailing LOVE, who trusted the race before us and got up every morning with assurance that He is for us and NOT against us! Now 5 weeks later; Louis had to be transferred to a different hospital (insurance reasons) but he is awake, starting respiratory and physical therapy, dialysis, blood thinners, over coming the tracheostomy that had to be done, fianlly his white cell count is normalizing, etc. And all of this would have not been possible without all of you who came together as one body and prayed for Louis cause if this isnt a God thing then I dont know what it is!! All praise and glory to the Creator, Amen! Now, Louis will need to stay at a sub-acute rehab facility for a minimum of 6 months. Our insurance will only cover a minimal amount. We are asking for your help. Would you please help us meet our goal?
