I asked him to explain to me what it means by the bottom of my heart being darkened, and if that part is now dead?
Good news . . . I had lost several pounds.
My blood pressure was exceptionally good, even amazing.
He told me that the photos that were taken of my heart in the nuclear stress test showed the darken part of my heart. He said it is not dead, and the area, if is has any damage is reversible. That area is not getting the blood supply it needs.
We talked about going the route of medication vs heart catheterization. I made the decision to submit to the latter. I will go to St. Mary's Hospital in Athens, Georgia, on Wednesday, March 16, at 1:30 p. m. for this surgical procedure. In the event there is a blockage or blockages he will have to put in a tint, then I will be given a room for overnight stay in the hospital.
Thus far, I have not experienced any chest pains.
So, I need your prayers.
My life is in the hands of God and I trust Him with my life as well as my death. I do not fear dying. I do not sense any fear about the procedure to check out my arteries internally with a catheter. He will enter my artery from the wrist rather than the groin. I have had so much clinical training in Clinical Pastoral Care and I have had almost two years of psychotherapy from an analyst as a vital part of my clinical training to become a supervisor in Clinical Pastoral Education that I am in touch with all my emotions, and I have learned to claim them as my own.
God in His providence has provided the best of the best in liberal arts education, theological, Biblical, and psychological education that has served me well for the personality God has given me. My life has been and continues to be one of service to others.
I know God healed my heart when I was pastor in Birmingham. It occurred when Melvine and I attended the 25th Anniversary of the Full Gospel Men's Fellowship Convention in Anaheim, CA. A black lady, by the name of Emma, prayed the prayer of faith and I was supernaturally healed. That healing was confirmed by my cardiologist in Birmingham.
I am 83. I don't pretend to know how much longer I will live. I do know that there is an allotted time God has determined for my life, as well as my death.
So, there you have it.
Because I believe in the Bible and the teaching we have as Pentecostal Holiness believers to ask for prayer for healing, I humbly request that when you pray that you mention my name, Hugh Morgan, to the Lord Jesus Christ, our Healer for divine healing and for the guidance of Dr. Clay Chappell, my cardiologist, the anesthesiologist who will administer the anesthetic, and others in the surgical suite.
Be blessed and may our awesome God grant you wisdom, strength, and glowing health (Daniel 2:23, The Living Bible). Daniel lived to be 90.
Your friend in all seasons,
Hugh H. Morgan
