Just want to say thanks to everyone for the support and prayers this past week with Jason's Dad emergency surgery that took place this past Tuesday. It has been a bit of a whirlwind, to say the least, but overall I have to say that GOD IS GOOD! I am so thankful to God for his provision, even when it is confusing and difficult. Who knew that Artie Sudan- healthy runner and athlete- would need to undergo bypass surgery...and not only that, but need 6 of them! People keep asking "Golly! How many are there??" I'm still wondering about that...All I know is that God sustained him and allowed him to get the help that he needed just in time. And I know that the Sudan family will be forever grateful to God for this.
People are also asking about why he had clogged arteries and what not. Like i really can understand all that...I am in graduate school for social work not med school. But from what people are saying it is mainly due to the type of cholesterol one has(which i think is genetic). There are different types(fluffy, medium, & tiny--i am not making this up), and some tend to be more susceptible to clogging in the arteries. I'm sure Dr. Sudan will read this and correct me(which i fully welcome). And while there are risk factors, such as smoking and poor diet, for heart disease...it's mainly genetic.
Anyways, I just wanted to send out a thank you to everyone who prayed...the Body of Christ is amazing! We had people praying from all over the world- from Bolivia to South Africa. But mainly, I just want to give God all the glory for what He has done...for his healing power and divine providence!! Thank you, Lord!!
