Once again…

This is Billie, Bill’s oldest daughter. It was actually I that wrote on his behalf in his last update. I thought I would post a comment from my uncle here for all to see. His comment was made last night and so his information is referring to this morning. Any and all prayers are appreciated!

“Hi I’m Bill’s brother Eric. Bill is scheduled to be sent to St Boniface Hospital tomorrow morning. At 10:30 they will be doing an angiogram to determine the amount of damage he has had and to determine what to do next. It may be an immediate angioplasti or greater surgery a little later. Bill has appreciated all of your concern and especially your prayers. He asks that you think of him tomorrow and pray a little more for him. Thank you to you all…you mean a great deal to him.”

    Billie, thanks for the constant updates. I know we are probably the last people on your minds at the moment, so it is so appreciated your keeping us up to date. Your dad means a lot to a lot of people, people of whom he will probably never meet, but who he has touched deeply. (Me being one of them!!) You and your family have been in my thoughts and prayers. I hope all the procedures go positively today, and Bill that you bloody behave and do as you are told !!!!

    (((((((((Coming from Aussie to you all)))))))))

    Good Morning Everyone!!! I was with my dad yesterday and he is doing really well he had the angiogram and the doctors determined that he had one artery that was 100% blocked. So they did an immediate angioplasti and it took 6 tries to get the blockage totally cleared he had a stint put in and is feeling really well. He was getting a bit on the restless side later in the evening cause he needed to stay flat on his back for 4 hours after the surgery but where the made the incision they were having trouble stopping the bleeding due to being on blood thiners, so once the bleeding would stop he would have to wait about one hour and then he could move. He sure is a tough guy going through the heart attack and the surgery but man can he complain when he has to lay still!!! But all went super well thanks for all the PRAYERS!!!

    Oh Shauna–THANK you.

    I’m not a patient waiter and have been back and prayed over and over again and again and again–

    I’m sooooooooo glad to hear he’s whining and carrying on! *laughing*
    Fiesty critter that he is, this is a good thing to hear.

    Yup, that process of waiting for the heal from the entry site is a pain, I hear. Make sure they have a plan for him when it’s time to remove the bandage? (k…..might be a bit protective, BUT–gosh golly, trust me that it’s for right reasons?)

    YEAH!!!! Blockage opened up (thank you surgeons!) and stent placed. Healing is started and he’s FIESTY! πŸ™‚ YIPPEE!!!!

    Yup–my G-d is an awesome G-d.
    And my gratitude extends to the surgeons who G-d put in Bill’s path. Job well done!!
    (thinkin’ chocolate for the nurses MIGHT be in order!) πŸ˜‰

    *hugs and positive thoughts to you and yours*

    Dear Bill,
    Just got back from Belgium and was in quite a panic when I read the postings! Sure am glad that things are sounding better now and that you’re feeling a little better. Please take care of yourself and heal carefully because you’re very important to many of us out here. We/I need you!!! It’ll be difficult, but listen to those pretty nurses and follow their instructions. Know that you are prayed for, Wiseman.

  16. Brenda says:

    Wow! So may wonderful people praying for you. That is so awesome! Bill I hope you know that everyone loves and truly admires you and that is why you have a good part of the world praying for you. You have given so much to everyone and now they are giving a little bit back by praying for you.
    We love you and will pray for a speedy recovery…
