Susan Shallcross

George & Susan Shallcross (for daughter Mary) Thank you for all your prayers for our family over the last weeks!

Mary and I went to Toronto General Hospital for a three line cardiac angiogram. It showed that she has two of her bypasses leaking, one on each side of her heart. There is a specialist that is willing to try to plug the leaks but after we were told this they held a conference and we were asked to consider a heart and lung transplant. This came as a big shock to us!! The decision now is to hold a more intense conference involving specialists from other centers to decide what is the best option for Mary.

• Pray that all medical parties can meet in a timely manner to make an informed decision • Mary has had to leave her employment but hopes to work part time to defray some of the financial costs. Pray that funding will be found for her care.

Dave Henkelman was flown by air ambulance to Edmonton for an assessment to receive an Lvad (internal heart pump with external batteries). This device can bridge him until transplant. Please pray Dave will be stable enough that they can do this surgery. Heidi has also flown out to Edmonton via a commercial flight.

Please continue to pray for peace for Dave and wisdom for his entire medical team. Please pray for strength and peace for Heidi, Jenny and Mark.

Henkelman Family

Dave Henkelman is now listed for a heart transplant. We consider this a miracle as his kidneys were really struggling over the weekend. He will require a match for body size, blood type and donor antibodies. Finding the right heart for Dave will truly be another miracle. Everyday countless organs get put in the ground. We are once again praying for a generous family who will share the gift of life in a terrible moment of grief.

Dave Henkelman is in the CCU now. This week he is undergoing many tests evaluating him for transplant.

His kidney function remains a concern. Increasing dosages of IV medication are not yet bringing the values down to a range where he would be considered for another heart transplant.

Please pray that his kidneys would respond well and soon!

Dave Henkelman has been admitted to the Cardiac Ward at the St. Boniface as his heart function has deteriorated. He is struggling with shortness of breath. Doctors have begun the process of seeing whether he is a candidate for another heart transplant. They are waiting for a bed in the Intensive Care Unit in order to be able to give him IV medications that will help his heart pump better.

Please pray for healing, wisdom and guidance for Dave, Heidi and the doctors.

Henkelman Family

After 5 weeks in hospital, Dave came home today. He is to have limited people contact due his risk of infection/illness because his white blood cell count is very low. He has a decreased heart function and only time will tell what or if any improvement happens. Pray for the Drs as they continue to adjust medications and closely monitor Dave's health over the next number of months. Pray for increased heart function and strength as he recouperates at home.

Henkelman Family

There was a glimmer of hope Dave would have been able to come home this weekend. However, his white blood cell count is too low. This coupled with other blood markers that are low also, he is much more at risk of infection or catching a bug from people visiting the ward. As a result, when he leaves his room now, has to wear a mask. Please pray that the white blood cell count and other important blood markers will improve into a safer zone. Pray for wisdom for the Drs. as they add, remove, and adjust medications. Much of what Dave is going through is new territory for them.

Henkelman Family

The Henkelman Family is grateful for your prayers. Dave has been moved from the CCU onto the cardiac ward. They were able to wean him off the powerful IV heart drug that helped his heart beat more efficiently. Please pray for the next phase of his recovery which will involve the balancing of various drugs to hopefully regain more heart function and physical strength.
