If you’re not aware, two weeks ago, Pastor Voddie Baucham had a medical emergency requiring him to immediately fly home from his overseas mission station and receive urgent care in the US. Voddie Baucham experience heart failure and, according to his updates, stared death in the face.
God was merciful and yesterday, Voddie Baucham had a successful heart procedure.
Today, Voddie offers this update, expecting to make a full recovery.
We thank God for a very successful surgical procedure yesterday. Everything went perfectly, and, Lord willing, I should make a full recovery.
They suspect that the heart failure was induced by an arrhythmia (actually two). This is good news because the procedure I underwent is designed to eliminate such arrhythmias, this allowing my heart to recover and remodel. In other words, I am not expected to stay on the heart failure track (which ultimately leads to transplant) but regain full heart health.
Of course, time will tell if they fixed it all, and I will be monitored closely for the next few months. But we are hopeful.
We praise and thank God for sparing his life today.
