Had a really bad day

My DH has been having some heart troubles and had had several tests over the past 2 weeks.  On March 14th he goes in for another one.  It is to determine whether or not he needs heart surgery.  It seems his aortic valve is leaking and it's causing problems.  He also has a small anurism right below his heart that will need removed and a graft inserted.  He has had surgery before for 3 anurisms in his abdomen and that was 3 years ago.  The autoimmmune disease he has is eating it's way through his body.  The cause of all of this is his Croyn's disease which all of this stemms from.  During the CT scan, they also discovered a spot on his right lung.  The doc is pretty sure this is scar tissue but we have to find out for sure.   
Why am I posting all of this?  I'm asking for prayers and if you can spare one, I'd appreciate it greatly.
Blessings,
Barbara

Thank you all for all your best wishes and prayers.  I am feeling stronger after reading all your wonderful comments.  Blessings!

Prayers with you and your DH. I know this is very scary.

I am sorry to hear all you are both going through. I know from experience that those pesky scans find everything, even things which could have been there for years doing no harm at all. They found lumps in my lungs and scared the heck out of me but they turned out just left over damage from past infections. Fingers crossed that everything is easily fixable xxxxx
