Please Pray for Fire


Dear Faithful Prayers,

Yesterday Fire came to me complaining his heart was racing, and he had been doing only mild physical activity at the time (passing a nerf football to his Consecrated and Strongman). I checked his pulse and his heart was beating at 182 beats/ minute. He said that when it started, he had chest pain.

He saw his pediatrician this morning who sent him immediately to a pediatric cardiologist. He had an echocardiogram and EKG; both were great. He currently is wearing a 24 hour heart monitor to try to record any abnormal rhythms.


As many of you know, Fire has a triathlon to compete in next Saturday. The cardiologist said it would be ok as long as the halter monitor was normal. He did stress that if it happened during the competition he was to stop immediately. Yesterday, was the first I heard about this occurrence. Apparently, it has happened previously, but Fire didn't think anything about it, so he didn't say anything to me.

I'd appreciate any prayers you would offer on behalf of my son.

You ALL mean so much to me and my family! We are BLESSED!!!!

With Much Love...

Beautiful Grace :)
