I'd like to humbly ask for your thoughts and prayers for my cousin Terry. He's in the hospital. He's been on dialysis (he was born with only one kidney, a horseshoe/fused one), he's just had a heart attack, and he has an aneurysm. If he's strong enough, they'll be doing surgery Thursday.

Compound this with the fact that he's also pretty close to broke before this happened.

He's not at death's door yet, but times aren't great.

An update:

The open heart surgery went well. They fixed the aneurysm and put in a pig valve. He'll be in ICU for a few days, but he should recover fine.

Thank you so much for your prayers. Please continue them.
