Please Please Please Pray

I know that I haven't posted in awhile but I'm pleading with all friends to please pray with me for my father in law. He has been in critical condition at the SLC ICU for over 2 weeks now. He had a heart transplant and everything that could possibly go wrong has. His liver and kidneys quit functioning, they had to cut out his colon and part of his small intestine and he already had to have additional surgery on the new heart. Right now he is hooked up to machines and in a medically induced coma. They're going to try doing brain scans sometime this week to test his brain functions....the biggest fear now is that he's suffered brain damage as a result of the initial surgery (23 hours).

Please please please pray for him and all of our family. This is a very trying time for everyone. What a testimony this could be if they knew he had a bunch of prayer warriors and pulled through! Please ask your churches, prayer groups and friends to include him in their prayer as well. It would really mean more to me than anything.

Thank you so much
