Dad’s Story! August 11, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — marilyn4him @ 11:59 pm

Dad had been in ICU twice since December and was still not improving. Finally, the doctor’s discovered the cause of why he was losing blood and why his heart and kidney’s were going into failure. They found that he had kidney cancer and the cancer had killed the left kidney, grew into the right kidney, through the liver and into the heart by way of the main veinacava vein. It did not look good. We had trouble finding a hospital to accept him since he did not have insurance and they were not expecting him to survive the surgery needed to remove the cancer. Finally, Centennial Hospital in Nashville, TN accepted him and they still did not give us much hope of survival. We said our goodbyes as they wheeled him away for surgery. To our surprise the surgery went well, far better than the doctors expected. He was in ICU for a few days and stayed in the hospital about a week and a half and came home. He is now doing well and is cancer free.


We prayed with dad every night. Churches all over were lifting prayers up for dad. Several pastors came and prayed over him as well. Mat 21:22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive. Isa 53:5 But he [was] wounded for our transgressions, [he was] bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace [was] upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

Praise the Lord!!! My dad is proof that miracles still take place today.  1Ch 29:13 Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name.
