My grandpa Jack K, has been getting pretty weak for a few months now. He is a very active beef farmer, who cannot stand to not have something to do. He found out he has a heart blockage, and bad valve. They scheduled a valve replacement surgery that said would most likely fix most of his problems, several weeks back. That surgery was suppose to be today.
Last Sunday, my grandpa had a stroke while I was sitting next to him talking to him. We rushed him to the hospital, where he stayed for several days. Luckily there was no damage, and that he was able to come home on Wednesday. Due to his stroke, (first one he has ever had) they postponed his heart surgery for another 2 weeks. It is now scheduled for the 27th. I am away from home at college, and just recieved a call that he has had another stroke today, and that they are back at the hospital now.
I just ask that other people lift him up in prayer, asking for healing for my grandpa. He was the man that raised me, and was the father and grandfather to me, when I didn't have anyone else. He is getting up there in age as he approaching 80 years old, but it's still very hard to see him struggling like this. He told me the last time I talked to him, he just wanted to be able to see me graduate college in May, as I am the first person in our family to ever attend college.
