Please pray.....

I would like to ask you to take a moment and say a prayer for Keith. Last night Keith was admitted into the hospital. His heart is having irregular heart beats again. He was in the hospital a little over a year and a half ago for this same issue. At that time, they did several iv drugs to try and regulate it with no results and ultimately had to use the crash cart to zap his heart into a normal rhythm.

We went to the ER immediately after he noticed that his heart was racing. He said it feels like his heart is trying to pound out of his chest. Once again they’ve started him on drugs to try to regulate it with no success. They have admitted him into the McKinney hospital, room 325, and are running some tests to find out the cause. Keith just wants them to zap him and send him on his merry way. The doctors this time are trying to determine the cause. The erratic heart beat could cause damage to his heart and lead to more serious problems. Please pray for patience for Keith and wisdom for the doctors/nurses caring for him.

Your prayers are deeply appreciated.

Laura, our prayers are with you all! My dad recently went through the exact same thing! He has a cardiac arythmia and was in the hospital for awhile to regulate the rate. He now takes a pill called Cardizem I think and seems to do well now. There is also something called ablation that they can do in the hospital. Maybe something to ask about if it's the same thing!

What am I listening to?
