Dominick Update

Update: Monday, February 9.....Dominick was told today by Northwestern Hospital that the $3000.00....two hour MRI of his heart that was taken last week is not clear enough for the doctor's to read and determine future treatment of the tumor....So next Monday, February 16th....he will head again to Northwestern Hospital for another MRI...of the heart....What a discouraging mess...and this puts most of his working on hold...AS OF WEDNESDAY 02/11/09 HIS EMPLOYER HAS LET HIM GO....WHICH MEANS HE MAY ONLY HAVE HIS INSURANCE COVERAGE FOR 30 DAYS....Please pray that the Lord would heal Dominick's heart of all problems...so that he can go onto leading the normal life of a 26 year old...Pray also against discouragement and for Dominick to not focus on his circumstances but look to the God to meet all his needs....

This is a post to update on Dominick, my daughter Karissa's boyfriend of over a year.......
Dominick had his heart MRI to get a better idea about the heart tumor he has...the two hour test was done at Northwestern Hospital in Chicago TODAY...the test results and readings will be at his cardiologist's office by Monday...Dominick has an appointment scheduled on Monday to find out where we go from here...

The kind of tumor that he has is called a myxoma.....normally this kind of tumor is sitting on a kind of pedestal...like a golf ball on a golf tee...and Dominick's is not....the cardiologist thinks right now that Dominick may have born with this......Please pray for the MRI to give a clear picture of how this is to be dealt with...and pray the doctor has the skill, wisdom, understanding and knowledge to preform this operation...I have already asked some of you for prayer for financial provision for this necessary medical care that Dominick is going to be having...and I would ask that you continue with that prayer....also that Dominick have peace that only the Lord can give during this difficult season of his life...Please pray that Karissa stay strong and is able to communicate in a loving way to Dominick's family during this process. (HEART PRAYER)

Update:
Dominick has just be "let go" from his second job as they were concerned of the liability of Dominick and his heart tumor...Please pray for him to be encouraged as to how much the Lord loves him and will take care of him and provide for him...Please also pray that the hospital's (Ingalls and Northwestern) that Dominick has been treated or tested at will be gracious and merciful and extend to him a financial release from the large medical bills that will be incurred due to a heart tumor and possible surgery.

The Tenacious Prayer of a Righteous Person is Powerful and Effective....James 5:16
