Life is so precious, one moment you are traveling the country doing the job of your dreams. Then whack! You get hit with a hammer that turns your world upside down. Cherish life because tomorrow is not promised.
I'm just allowing the Holy Spirit to take more responsibility for our lives. I was told to release in the ethos what was on my heart. Arnold Cox was in a 13-day coma in 2014 the devil tried to take his life once but God is on the throne. Arnold starting not feeling well on 6/15/19 when if got so bad that he could not eat and could not hold his urine or bowels I took him to the doctor. It was determined on 6/17/19 that his blood pressure and diabetes was out of control and he had pneumonia. About a week in the hospital and still having breathing problems even to talk the hospital decided to do a Coronary angiography to see the blood flow through the arteries in the heart.
Results: 1@100% gone, 1@90% gone, 1@80% gone and 1@70% gone.
He was diagnoses with heart failure about a week ago and as you read this (7/1/19 9:00am) he is under the knife for a triple or quadruple bypass. We were just about a month ago going from state to state delivering company cars directly to reps for a company called Acertus. Arnold had found the job he really wanted driving and talking with people of all walks of life. Now the hammer took whack at him but, he always saying "If you can look up you can get up". God has his hands on the surgeons and on Arnold and he has a plan for him to complete on this earth. So, help me to lighten the load as he mentally drives through the roads of life and recovery for the next several months.
May God Bless you as you bless Arnold through this journey.
Help spread the word!
Update 7/1/19 5pm
Arnold actually had to have a quadruple bypass today. He went for surgery around 7am. Arnold was transferred to ICU around 5pm. He is still sedated at this time and they will not be removing the breathing tube today. Arnold will be in ICU for the rest of this week looks like then moved to the Cardio floor.
Update 7/2/19 6:20am
Today is July 2,2019 got a call from the hospital spoke with one of his doctors and Arnold needs a blood transfusion due to his hemoglobin is to low. They will do this procedure today and says he only needs a few pints to have enough blood flow for the quadruple bypass. Before they move him to the Cardo floor he will start some therapy to see where he is with movement. He was able to say a couple of words today and wanted to make sure I was in agreement for the transfusion and let me know he loves me. God is still in the healing business and is continuing to work on Arnold’s restoration.

Support Arnold Cox
I first met Arnold and Julie through Renatus. I was looking to expand my real estate investments, and their drive and passion motivated me- talking to them always energized me and renewed my commitment to Renatus.
From day one, they proved themselves to be sweet, caring, hardworking people- motivated only by their desire to see other people succeed.
Fast forward to today, and now it’s my turn to bless them just as much as they have blessed me. I’m only one person, so there is only so much I can do, but I am confident that all of us can join together and really encourage Arnold and Julie’s hearts with our collective contributions.
Arnold and Julie really need our support. Arnold was recently admitted into the intensive care unit at South Shore hospital. His kidneys are not functioning properly, his heartbeat is irregular and there is fluid on his lungs. Doctor’s have been keeping him heavily sedated due to all of the complications. Completely unaware of what is going on, at one point Arnold tried getting out of the bed, but now he has to stay sedated so that his pneumonia, blood pressure, temperature and sugar can stabilize.
As Arnold is in the hospital fighting for his life, I’d like to help him and Julie by giving them one less thing to worry about. Arnold doesn’t have medical insurance, so as you can imagine, medical bills are piling up. On top of this, Julie has been spending much of her time at the hospital, so their living expenses are accumulating as well.
Please help by contributing what you can to Arnold’s cause. Our goal is $20,000 to help cover medical bills and living expenses so that Arnold can focus on getting well and Julie can focus on supporting him. No amount is too small. Let’s be as much of as blessing to them, as they have been to each of us over the years.
