Thanks for Praying
Justin was released from the hospital today! The diagnosis is that there seems to have been some sort of strep infection that attacked his kidneys causing the heart valves to leak and the fluid build up (which in a normal person is 100 and when Justin went in to the hospital on Mon pm was up to 700!). Justin would have experienced heart failure had he not gone in when he did. We're praising the Lord that he went in and the doctors caught the problem. They took a biopsy of his kidney yesterday. Unless there is something very alarming going on there, they believe that his body is healing itself. He'll have to go back in 2-3 weeks for an eceocartiogram to monitor the heart, but the doctors are hopeful that with REST (JUSTIN--- TAKE IT EASY!!!! NO ROCK CLIMBING!!!) his heart will be fine. Thank you for all the prayers.
