report on Beth's surgery. 73/99, Frank
open heart surgery went very well today. She arrived
in ICU about 11:30 AM When awoke in ICU about 1:00
PM she was doing excellent. After breathing on her
own for about 20 minutes they removed the breathing
tube. By 5 PM she had sat on the edge of the bed,
stood, and sat down in a recliner. When I left about
6 PM she was waiting for some liquid nourishment.
Thanks for your prayers. She continues to need God
hand in a quick recovery with no infection. A real
concern with her suppressed immune system. Keith

is from Keith, WAØJGT in Waseca, Minnesota.
Keith has been an ARMS member for years. His
wife, Beth, has had a series of other medical
problem to which Keith alludes: Mayo Clinic
discovered that Beth has a myxoma growing in the
left atrium of her heart. Tuesday of this week we
have the pre-operation tests and consultation.
Thursday this week Beth will undergo open heart
surgery to have the myxoma removed. Please remember
her in prayer for the surgery and the recovery. Beth
is very concerned about the recovery because she is
on immune suppressants for her other problems. They
had to wait for the surgery until the prednisone
dose was below 10mg per day. She is also taking 2
other drugs to suppress her immune system. This will
put her at a higher risk for infection during
Thanks for your prayers and
concern. Roger - WØZMU

probably already heard about Dave’s latest fall
and the results of it, but just in case, here Is
Sharon’s prayer request.
have a prayer request and some information to send
you. David and I were on our way to my home in AZ.
We were half way there, when David passed out again
without warning and fell. He had a slight
concussion from hitting his head, a couple of
scratches, and his right thigh was extremely
painful. We decided to return to Port Angeles.
The ER doctor again ran the usual tests plus a CT
scan of his head and did x-rays. No broken
bones. All the other tests were normal.
He has a tear in the groin muscle, which makes
walking extremely painful. It will heal
itself, but will take several weeks. Tylenol and
heat are the only treatment. Still no reason
found as to why he passed out. He sees his
primary care doc on Monday. Unfortunately, we feel
it is best to cancel our reservation to the ARMS
convention in July. We were so looking forward
to being there. I have sent Roger an e-mail
requesting that he cancel our reservation. Please
keep David in your prayers for healing of the torn
groin muscle and that the doctor will have wisdom to
know what other tests to do to find out why he's
hope to be back on the net next week.
