Please pray for my husband, Pat. His elective surgery went very well 3 weeks ago but continued to drain, then became infected after we’d returned home 850 miles away. Since returning to the hospital, he has become much worse. He hasn’t wanted to eat since last Friday and has been on IV’s. His pain from the pressure of the fluids was so intense over the weekend he was screaming and writhing in pain for 2 days. They have most of the pain controlled and the infection is being treated but they still need to keep him mostly sedated which makes it hard to get nutrition into him.
There have been some very scary moments and I have prayed and prayed for his recovery and also for him to welcome the Lord into his life and live according to God’s will instead of thinking he is in charge. He said he used to pray as a kid but he leaves that kind of stuff up to me and the kids now. A few weeks ago, I’d asked him if he would pray for his health and he said that was a last resort. He is now not able to pray for himself, he is too often out of his head with fever, pain/drugs and never developed the habit of prayer.
Please pray for him, for a return to health and for a conversion of heart.
St Gemma, patron of back problems and conversion of sinners, pray for us!
