Calling All Prayer Warriors - URGENT

My dad will be having open heart surgery tomorrow morning, 8am.

Short version: he went in for a stress test today, and... they're keeping him overnight and cracking his chest tomorrow. No, it cannot be fixed with a stent or a *plasty. Must be open heart.

Doctor that read the test said that without surgery they would expect him to have a massive heart attack within 7 - 10 days.

He had NO warning signs. Family history of heart disease, yes. Symptoms or problems himself? No.

So, I am asking for anyone out there in blog-world that reads this to please keep my daddy in your prayers tonight, and tomorrow during the surgery, and then during his recovery as well.

Much luck to your dad - It's always better when they find it before any kind of problems manifest themselves.

I'm so, so sorry. Heart disease is such a scary thing. I'll keep your family in my thoughts.

I went through this with my own father back in 2005, so if you want to chat about things, you know where to find me.

That's exactly what happened to Joe, went for a stress test and wasn't allowed to go home. They tried plasty, but they almost lost him doing that, so did a double bypass. It's some scary sh!t, I know how worried you must be. Scared Joe so much that he's super good about his diet now, says he doesn't want to ever go through that again!
