Please please pray!

My dad began experiencing horrific chest pains tonite. We took him to the ER ourselves and they did an EKG immediately to discover that he was having another heart attack. The Dr. did a catherization and found that one of the three bypasses (that was graphed to the artery that was 99% blocked) had closed. This caused the heart attack as the blood could not flow anywhere. The Dr. was able to put in two stints into dad's original artery that was blocked. He is in the ICU in our local hospital, we have just gotten home. Needless to say, my dad has been through a ridiculously rough night and my mom as well. I am to tired to even think straight but I wanted to get this on here to get some prayer support going up for my dad. I fully believe that God has spared my dad's life twice now in the past week and I am so unbelievably grateful. Please pray for these bypasses to hold strong, for the stints to hold strong....for continued healing of his incisions, for no infections, for rest/sleep. He will be in the ICU for a few days while they monitor him. Thank you so much!
