As the title suggests, my dad, who is in poor health, is very close to kidney failure according to recent tests. His cholesterol levels and AC1 are both out of control, as well. He is also a type 2 diabetic, has heart disease, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. Back in 1998, he had a massive heart attack and his heart stopped 4 times on the helicopter on the way to the university hospital, and with these recent blood tests, I am very worried that he may have another heart attack or some other serious health crisis. He hasn’t been taking care of his health (mainly eating right and checking blood sugars, except when I “nag” him). Both of my grandmothers died earlier this year, and I am really worried that I might lose him, too.
Please pray that his recent medication changes will help him come into better health, and that this recent scare will be enough for him to start taking better care of himself.
