Wednesday, August 13...Juanita has 5X bi-pass surgery
« on: Sun Aug 10, 2008 - 15:38:47 »
Hi everyone...today I received a pm from a heart surgery patient.  I had previously referred to her as 'Betty'.  The pm was through YouTube. Her real first name is Juanita.  I was so surprised--and delighted--to hear from her.  I thought I would not hear from here again.

She told me that her surgery had been postponed to make way for someone who was in worse shape than she is. (!) She let me know that the surgery date is this Wednesday.

Two things to note:  my inbox registered 0 when in fact she had contacted me today.  I'm confused over this.  I only discovered that I had a message because I decided to check out the e-mail spam folder.  I seldom do that but I decided to check it today.

The other thing is I wrote back to her.  I think my message was not sent.  After I hit the send button the screen went blank and when I checked to see if my message got through it registered 0.  Weird...that's never happened before.  I am wondering if she has me blocked.  You can block certain members from contacting you even though you can contact them. That would make sense.  She did say that she would try to e-mail me again through the pms. 

Anyway, please pray for Juanita, this Wednesday.  There must be some significance to this.  She did respond...My wife and I think that God is at work here.  Thanks for reading this and thanks for your prayers on her behalf, her mother, her son and the surgical team.

Michael

An update:  Apparently Juanita did get my pm.  I am not blocked and she was glad to hear from me.  She says that she does appreciate prayer and that she has others praying for her.  She still wants to keep in touch.  I guess she did not drop me like a rock afterall when I told her about us here.  That's good news.  Thanks for praying for this dear soul.  I pray she survives the surgery and that, God willing, I can share with her wonderful things of the Lord.

Thanks Amy.  Do you know this saying, "And Satan trembles when he sees the weakest Christian on his/her knees."

Bye! ::tippinghat::

It doesn't ring a bell, but I like it! It makes complete sense.

Keeping faith and praying,

May God guide the surgeon's hands as Juanita has the operation, be filled with the peace of the Lord, and may she be granted a quick and complete recovery that God will be glorified.   I'm praying God will be merciful and do these things for her through Jesus Christ Who forgives all our sins and heals ALL our diseases.

I wonder how the surgery went for Juanita?  Today is the big day.  I hope that she is in recovery now and that I will hear from her again. 

Thanks trueblue for a lovely prayer.  Touching.

Good news!  Juanita pm'd me on YouTube!  This is her pm to me today:

"Hi buddy, how are you?  I'm doing great.  I had 3 bypass and an anurezum cut off my heart and the dead part of my heart was also removed so I'm doing well.  I am home.  (I guess you know that for I am e-mailing you).  My stay at the hospital was good and had lots of great nurses.  Doctor took pictures of the whole surgery.  He said it was his first anurezum so it's going into the books he teaches from.  I'm getting copies of them so I can see for myself.  I hope to hear from you soon.
                                                             JUANITA , you sick friend."

Thank you everybody who prayed for this dear lady.  I don't know what the Lord might have in mind here.  I have never carried on a running correspondence with anyone on YouTube before but I am willing to keep in touch with her.  There must be some significance that she desires to keep in touch.  Please pray that at the right time I might share our faith with Juanita. 

Thank you also for the prayers that went up on behalf of her elderly mother and her son as well as the surgical team.  This is wonderful news indeed.

I thought it was bi-pass X5...I'm alittle confused about that.  Oh well, she made it off the table.  She had said that she was afraid about this operation. 

Do doctors take pictures of an operation and make them available to the patient if he/she wants them?  I have always thought that if they had made a video of my last cancer surgery I would have like to have had a copy of it--kind of like a souvenir, howbeit a weird one, I guess.  Do they really do that down in the US?  I've never heard of that up here.  Just wondering... ::pondering::

Anyway, thanks once again.  Juanita's on the mend now.  Please remember her in your prayers and especially if I can share with her about our faith. 

Goodnight from Canada.
Michael

That's awesome, Michael! Good to see that everything went okay. And I will most certainly pray for her and that you will be able to share your faith with her sometime.

Praise to God for this good report!  May he touch Juanita and lead her to Himself if she does not know Him, the Great Physician.   ::jumping::   ::GodisGood::

Mike, often they don't know exactly how many bypasses they will do until they get in there. 

I haven't had bypasses, but I've never had a surgery where they didn't have a surprise and end up doing more than they originally intended. 

I'll pray for her.
