Asking for prayers

Two years ago, the weekend after thanksgiving my Uncle had to go into the hospital. He was at level two of the 4 stages of congestive heart failure. Level two is A-Fib which basically means your heart is out of rhythm. He's an overweight guy, smokes and does alot of physical labor. He said that it honestly felt like he was dying it felt so bad. It was a scary time for all of us. After that stay, his heart has been pretty much out of whack. Once you have A-Fib, you dont get rid of it. You can control it but sometimes it comes back full force. 

So, today he has to go in to the hospital for the night. They will put the paddles on his chest like they would if you needed to get a person's heart beating. They are going to shock his heart back into rhythm. We are all hoping it goes well. There are risks though. He could have a heart attack among other things.

I'm not one to usually ask for prayer. We've been blessed to have a healthy family. But today, please pray that everything goes well for him
