I thought there was a general thread for prayer requests, but I couldn't find it. So apologies if I missed it. I just wanted to ask for prayers for my dad; he's been sick for the last month or so, and was admitted to the hospital about two weeks ago now. We thought it was just the flu, but then it progressed to being pneumonia. Then it was double pneumonia AND an infected aortic valve. He had valve replacement surgery yesterday, which was successful, but the surgeon found that his whole heart is infected. We got a call from the surgeon after surgery was over that we should be prepared for the worst, on account of how bad the infection is. He said my dad is fighting hard, and I'll never be so grateful for his stubborn nature as I will be through this experience. I drove home from school to be here for the surgery yesterday, and I've gotten to see him a few times. He looked a lot better this morning and he was awake and responsive. But I'm just here to ask for prayers, because he really needs them. Thank you.
