Turn Your Eyes, Atrial Fibrillation tests for my Honey

The last few days as we have been dealing with my Honey's heart issue, the words of an old...I mean old...chorus have been surfacing in my mind...even waking up with it.
Turn your eyes upon Jesus
Look full in His wonderful face
And the things of earth
will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace

I don't know who wrote it, and it goes back 30 some odd years to when I became a Christian, but it is still a comfort in difficult time.

This is the heart of my hearts, my other half. I am praying the tests go well. He has had atrial fibrillation for about 15 years and it has been what the doctors told us it would be...a nuisance...but manageable. He would have 2-3 incidents a month...until last Wednesday when he had about 30-40. The doctors have him pretty stabilized with a beta blocker so he is down to maybe 10 a day, but they want him off them the beta blockers on Monday for a stress test & imaging on Tuesday and I am quite concerned. But, I am praying and appreciate the prayers of our friends and family. Now is when it's difficult to have family 3 states away.

So...won't be blogging much until Tuesday...hopefully with good results from the testing which will decide if he needs a pacemaker or not.

3 You, Lord, give perfect peace
      to those who keep their purpose firm
      and put their trust in you.
 4 Trust in the Lord forever;
      he will always protect us.

Isaiah 26: 3-4 Good News Translation


  1. prayers for you and your husband. Afib is such a nagging problem for so many people.
