Prayer Request

Hello everyone! I just wanted to ask you all to pray for Neal's blood pressure. He didn't have high blood pressure before surgery, and now he's on two blood pressure medicines (and they just increased one of them). Tonight, 3 hours after taking his PM medicine, his blood pressure was 167/95. We think it may be due to the blood thinner he's taking (I haven't checked this out though). They keep increasing his Coumadin and every time they do that, his BP increases. He does come off of the Coumadin May 28th, so hopefully we'll see improvement in his BP after that.

Other than that, he's really doing well! Thank you for your prayers!

Teresa, Praying this will be taken care of soon. said...

Dwayne and I are praying that Neal's BP will return to normal. Coumadin does not cause high BP. Check what he is eating to make sure there is no hidden sodium...salt.

Jeremiah 29:11

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
