Subject: Thursday November 01, 2012/JOHN

A few weeks ago John received a diagnosis of Rheumatic Fever from an Orthopedic dr. here in our town. He also received a steroid injection for carpal tunnel, and started physical therapy. As most of you know, John has suffered for years with joint pain and shortness of breath. He was tested for many things in the US, all coming up with nothing.
To make a very long story short, in the past 2 weeks John's shortness of breath, pain, headaches, and dizziness have increased dramatically. He has had lack of energy and increased weakness. So today was dr. day. We saw a cardiologist to make sure that his heart valves and heart in general were healthy. They are. We then went to the store, John passed out. So, back to our dr. we went and she put him in a hospital bed, but him on IV with meds for pain, anti-inflammatory, etc. He spent the day there, with his heart rate very low. Our drs. and cardiologist got together and feel it best for John to go into San Pedro Sula, our large city, to see another cardiologist and neurologist. Tomorrow he will go with Mark and will be put on a heart monitor for 24 hours. They feel that there is something between the brain and heart that isn't just right.
I don't have more to tell you because we don't know anything right now. Many tests have been run, many drs. are being consulted.
We are praying, believing, and have complete peace that our God is in control and loves John more than even we can.
I am sorry if I don't update rapidly. Sometimes we are in places where we do not have internet. But I will try to be very quick! If you feel that you would like to talk with John or pray over him on the phone please email us with your phone number and we can call.
We appreciate your prayers,
