“You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.”
~2 Corinthians 9:11 NIV~
Linda B. Williams requests prayers for husband, Jimmy.
Friends & Relatives, we are in need of your prayers, again. Following Jimmy’s hospitalization a few months ago after he had the heart cath, his prognosis wasn’t good. He never had recovered from the quadruple bypass surgery he had in 12/2018, and the coronary artery disease is severe. His doctor decided to have a Physical Therapist with his Home Health agency start seeing him and see if he could get his strength back. He did not progress and was discharged by his therapist. When he went to his doctor, she put the order in for Hospice so they can help Jimmy have the best quality of life possible. She explained the things Hospice can do for him that Home Health can’t. She also told us it did not mean he would only live for a certain length of time. It meant Hospice will provide services that will help make his life easier. There are no options left for treating his failing heart. He was admitted to Hospice today. Thanks in advance for your prayers for Jimmy and our family.
