I received an e-mail from a friend in Iceland today--how many people do you know who have a friend in Iceland! She asked about my brother-in-law's condition, and helped me to realized I had never posted an update of what happened with him.
The fear was that he had a catastrophic heart condition that would qualify him as a candidate for a heart transplant. If he had the condition there would be no surgical solution, and if they could not find a heart to replace his he would, one day, experience total heart failure and die. Since he has three small children this was difficult news to hear.
Well, praise the Lord, the news came back that, though he does have some heart issues, he does not have the catastrophic condition they feared he might have! They told that he still might have to have open heart surgery some day, but he said that compared to what he was facing this seemed to him like a walk in the park.
Thank you so much for praying with us for Jason, we really appreciate your partnership in this. Please continue praying for him that God would remove even the condition that he does have for the glory of His name. And that one way or the other God would continue to build Jason's faith and give him a heart of worship and adoration for the Lord.
