a bend in the road


Wayne holding Curtis and his wife Teresa
(taken summer of '09)

Six-thirty Sunday morning we got a call from Teresa,our daughter-in-law, saying Wayne, our son, was admitted to the hospital due to a heart attack.Wayne is only thirty-five.

In shock, we quickly packed a few overnight things and left for West Virginia, not knowing what to expect. When we got to Winchester, he had just returned from a catherization and found his arteries were in really good condition. But the lower part of his heart was damaged. By evening, Waynes was feeling better but very tired. We left the hospital, taking Teresa home and stayed for the night there.
Wayne and Teresa have four children -
Clara-9, Cynthia-7, Crystal-4, Curtis13 mo.
This morning, after dropping the two girls off at school and leaving the two younger ones with a sitter,
we went back to the hospital to find Wayne sitting in a chair, looking much better, but still tired after a night in in constant care, where sleep is nigh near impossible. At noon he was transferred to the regular floor but still needing a few more tests done. At this point, they're still puzzled as to what really happened but are thinking the damage was caused by something unrelated to the heart. We praise God his prognosis is good
and with time, the heart will heal itself.

It was a difficult week for their family. Clara had an ear infection, Cynthia had strep throat, Curtis burned his hand and Wayne wasn't feeling well for several days. Pray for them as you think about them!

We are grateful!

...blessedness!

Esther~it is hard for a Mother to see her son suffer, (at any age) so I am praying for strength for you as you go about your day, thinking constantly about them and yet trying to "live" your life too. are you still down there? if so, do you need anything taken care of back at your home?
So many difficult things at one time, I am sure everyone is just t.i.r.e.d. I pray a supernatural refreshment would fill you when you rest.

Wow. I hope your son is on the road to recovery, as I think I am reading this a few weeks "late". Blessings!
