Pray for Jim Hoft ... He is very ill and loosing his health insuranceTopics: Faith, Political News and commentaries
Jim Hoft, who blogs at Gateway Pundit, has been very ill and depends on life-saving medical attention. He has just learned that he is loosing his health insurance.
(Dr. Richard Lee, MD, MBA, and Jim Hoft, two months after open heart surgery.
Dr. Lee, co-director at the Center for Comprehensive Cardiovascular Care at Saint Louis University Hospital, saved Jim's life.)
Lord, hear my prayer,Jim writes:
listen to my cry for mercy;
in your faithfulness and righteousness
come to my relief.
Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love,
for I have put my trust in you.
Psalm 143 -- Verses 1,2,8
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee.The last sentence bears repeating: "Why is our government doing this to us?"
Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended up lasting twelve. My heart was severely damaged. Dr. Lee later told me the surgery was one of the most difficult of his career. He also said I only had a few days to live without the surgery.
Thanks to the excellent insurance I carried I was able to receive life-saving medical treatment at St. Louis University.
This week I found out I am going to lose my insurance. The company that carried me is leaving the Missouri market. I will have to find something else.
I am one of the millions who will be looking for new insurance. God willing, I will be able to keep my doctors at St. Louis University. I trust them. They saved my life. Please pray for me and the millions of working Americans who are going through this same ordeal.
Why is our government doing this to us?
The sentence has been quoted by Rush Limbaugh.
