I know I havent been here long but I also know I have already built some great friendships so I just wanted to ask my Hubber friends help me pray for my dad.
As he was getting prepped for minor surgery today he went into cardiac arrest. His heart was stopped for five minutes. He is stable at the moment but a few prayers wouldn't hurt.
I will write a hub about the details in a few days but for now this is about all the writing I am doing.
Wow Dale...I can't imagine what you must be going through. I'm not a religious person, but I will promise you this...your father, you, and all of yours will be in my thoughts, and I certainly hope your dad pulls through...
your dad is in great hands(God's care). He will be fine, i wish u and your family all the best.
Dale, you dad is in my prayers. Hope for the best.
I pray Our Heavenly Father will lay his healing hands upon your earthly father and that He will give you the strength to see you through this ordeal.
You and your father are in my thoughts and I send best wishes to your whole family.
reality is all about
i love to be optimistic buti am realistic
infact weallaremeeting the reality every time every second . its all about to understandand
Lord Jesus, I thank you for the privilege to pray on behalf of Dale's father today and pray that you will cover him with your grace and mercy as he faces the days ahead.
Father, you are the Creator of all man and you know what Dale's father needs right now; supply him in abundance with health, knowing that by the stripes of your Son Jesus, we were healed! Lord, I pray that you will show Dale's father your faithfulness, that you will reverse the course of action against his body, that he might live a life recovered as healthy and whole. The Word says we are fearfully and wonderfully made! Lord Jesus, you are Jehovah Jireh, our provider, and Jehovah Nissi, the one who causes us to victory!
You are Jehovah Shalom, our Prince of Peace and above all, you are our Savior!
Lord, show your face on this child of Almighty God and deliver him from destruction; what the enemy has meant for evil, I join in the prayers of my brothers and sisters here to say you will turn for your good purposes!
Thank you, Father, for Dale and his family; I pray you provide them with the peace of mind knowing that you, Father, are still in control. AMEN.
It's so interesting the title of this thread. It certainly takes a brush with death, or the experience of someone you love to brush death, to realize the reality of life. Can show how we deny our mortality.
Hope your dad recovers Dale. Take care.
I'm so sorry to hear that, Dale. My thoughts are with you, your dad and your family now. Keep us posted on how he is doing. Hang in there.
I can understand your feeling. I really wish that he recovers fast and be in pink health like never before. Do let us know how is he doing now.
My Prayers are with your Dad Dale, keep us up to date how he is and you take care ok.
Dale, I have a prayer in my heart for you.
I'm sure it will all be ok. Hang in there.
Dale, our thoughts (my wife and I) are with you (and your Dad).
All the best to you and your family. I wish your dad a swift recovery.
will do Dale. My prayers are with you and your family especially your father. I nearly lost my own dad 4 years ago and I know how powerful other people's prayers can be
Where 2 or more are gather He is there.
Thank you to everyone, I will post an update today after I know more
Sorry to hear about your Dad, Dale. My thoughts and prayers are with you both. I wish him a speedy recovery and long and healthy life.
OMG. I hope everything goes well. Looking on the bright side (which is difficult I know), at least it happened when there were medical staff on hand to help, as opposed to when he was out shopping etc. It probably improved his chances, which sounds like someone is already looking out for you. Hope he recovers fast.
Really hope everything goes well...and praying that it will!
Thanks everyone/ just thought I would check in and let everyone know dad is stable and on the road to recovery.
He is still in intensive care but everyone is optimistic he will be out of intensive care in a day or 2 but then will still need a couple weeks in the hospital
In a day or two when I can get more than 30 minutes on the internet I will write a hub on the entire experience.
That is good news so far. He has been in my thoughts and prayers throughout the day.
Once again thank you to everyone. Once again I will be spending my day at the hospital.
I do have hopes that I can get started on the hub explaing the details of what went down in the last few days.
Glad to hear things are improving a little,,,, you are in my thoughts and prayers, give your dad a huge hug, if he is up to it, and tell him we are looking after his son for him.... xx
I pray your Dad's situation improves and he gets better.
May God give you and your family the strength to get through this time. Take Care.
Oh definetly it will be the first thing I do before I go to sleep tonight. My heart is with you,and your precious father. Hope everything goes well.
Update! Update! Update!
Today my dad was moved out of Intensive care into coronary care. It is still a serious issue but getting out of intensive care is a big step.
Thanks for all the prayers and I will again update tomorrow and may even be able to start a hub on the experience because I can use my laptop in the room he is in now.
Glad to hear he's making progress and out of ICU. Thanks for keeping us posted.
Dale, I am glad he is doing better. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.
Sorry I arrived late - but I'm glad I arrived on-time to hear your Dad is doing better!
Wonderful news..... get those keys clicking on the lap top, but don't disturb your dad he needs all the rest he can get. We can wait for you, he cannot... god bless...
Oh that is wonderful wonderful news....am thinking of you both.xox
I just saw this post, Dale, but so glad to see that your father seems to be coming along. Best wishes for his continued and complete recovery.
Dale, how is he doing now that he's settled into a normal ward?
Dale, all the best to you and your family. I wish your dad a swift recovery.
Well yesterday had more good news and a little not so good. My pops is up and walking and feels pretty good about it. However he is losing his breath a lot quicker and now has to be on oxygen.
Today I am away from the hospital. Am letting my sisters take a day. 14 hour days have taken their toll on me and I just needed to get out for a bit. I will be back Monday morning in the hospital.
Today is the day I write my hub about my experience. At least I hope I get it done.
Oh yes and thank you to everyone for their prayers.
Well for the most part it is good news. My pops is going to make it. I will be hanging with him at the hospital until the weekend when he can likely go home.
The bad news is he does have a severely damaged heart. Today I was told his heart is about 20% of a healthy heart.
Oh well at least he is still with us and I do thank God for giving me another chance with him.
I also thank all my friends here at HubPages for saying your prayers or just thinking about him. I showed him on the computer on a daily basis.
I am going to finally start the hub on the events of that day. Will likely start tonight if i dont get too mixed up in the forums. LOL
Once again thank you to all my Hub friends.
