Carrie and I are requesting prayer for her dad, Francis. He was rushed to the hospital yesterday around 3:00 in septic shock. We spent the afternoon and evening in various waiting rooms awaiting word of what was going on and when we can see him. They had to do emergency surgery on his arm where they believe the initial infection had come from. The surgery went well but he is, as they have all told us, " a very sick man and we will see what the next 48 hours will bring." This is stressful and oh so hard. They are having trouble keeping his blood pressure at a safe level and keeping him breathing. I asked many questions and one thing I found out is this is in no way related to his heart attacks he has had within the last few months. So, please keep Francis in your prayers. He will be in the hospital for "several weeks" (as they say). He is currently in the ICU.
