Pray for Dick McCarthy

This message came in Saturday, requesting prayer for Richard McCarthy, retired Grace Brethren pastor now living in the Columbus, Ohio, area:

We would appreciate your prayers for Dick. He is in Riverside Hospital because he had trouble breathing Thursday due to fluid in his lungs. He is scheduled to have heart catherization Monday and his cardiologist wants him to have an aortic valve replacement.

We will meet with the heart surgeon Monday after the catherization to talk about the valve replacement. This would be a "redo" heart surgery and thus a higher risk. God's wisdom is certainly needed. Thanks for praying for us.

Hi Terry,

As a former aortic valve replacement patient, my thoughts are with Dick. If you or he needs anything or have questions about the surgery, please let me know. FYI, here is some information about the procedure for those who may want to learn more:
