Falcone's Crossroads

Where This Meets That

Prayer Request for My Father

Hi All, my father Vince will be undergoing surgery tomorrow (Wednesday, 3/21) to clear his carotid artery.

He has had several “mini-strokes” over the past few weeks and was hospitalized last week after falling in his yard when he briefly lost feeling in his entire left side.

Fortunately, he has no apparent residual ailments from that, but doctors found an 80% blockage that they consider a ticking time bomb for a stroke.

His surgery will be Wednesday at 2PM EST.  He will receive the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick this evening, as there is some risk associated with the procedure.

Please keep him and my mother in your prayers this week.

    I wish I could pray. I will hope… and desire… and wish… He seems like a lovely man, and I do want him to be well. Good luck.

    Thanks PMAO. It all counts, regardless of what we call it.

    Hi All, my father’s looking pretty good this morning. I was able to leave the hospital around 10PM last night, and he was groggy but lucid.

    The blockage was substantial, but they were able to clear it out completely. Hopefully his recovery will be quick and complete. Many thanks for your thoughts and prayers!

    The only thing that could make that news better is a speedy recovery. Thanks for the update!
