Greatest Before and After

My brother-in-law, Gary, has really had a rough year. He only has 22% lung capacity. Then he found out he had blockage in his heart. Methodist Hospital in Houston did a great job repairing his heart while keeping his lungs working. He was sent back to Vidor doing well. Then he started having trouble with low blood pressure so he made the mistake of going to St Elizabeth’s Hospital in Beaumont. He developed pneumonia and they put him on a ventilator. He was medically sedated and left that way for 45 days. He dwindled to almost nothing. They were talking to us about taking him off of life support and letting him die. A very smart nephew advised us to move him back to Houston. This is a picture of him when he was really bad.

When I saw him at Methodist after his return he was worse than this. Well he is now in a long-term rehab facility in San Antonio. Here are some after pictures.

God really does the best Before and After.

This is truly the power of prayer.
