please pray for my grandpa...he had open heart surgery a long time ago..and is starting to get shortbreath, shoulder pain etc..so tomorrow he is going for a heart appointment..we all tell him every day to SLOW DOWN, he owns a pretty big business with a few employees, and this heat makes them busier and this heat is not helping him tho. I worked for him for several years, no longer do, but his employees slack off more and more every year causing my grandpa to do more work than he should. his employees probably do not even know his situation, because grandpa is the type that will not let people know hes having problems...he has recently gotten a few more employees, but i think them new employees has gave my grandpa MORE stress and i believe alot of this has to do with stress and too much work...we thought he was gonna slow down after his last heart surgery but he never did, so i dont know if i need to have a little talk with his employees or not...he does have one alcoholic employee that i know for a fact brings alot of stress for my grandpa, but hes been working for him for a long time and for some reason he dont want to let him go..i dont know what else i can do except pray..i would help him out with his business but i have started something new...

well, we are very glad he went ahead and had all these test done, they found blood clot/s in his lungs and said hes had them for about a month and that he is very lucky..he will be in the hospital a couple/few days....alot of this has to do with he works so much that he didnt ever have time to stop and think what could happen, and im very glad to say his son..(who works for him) has finally realized he needs to step up and start taking over his business so my grandpa can slow down so he can retire....i guess sometimes it takes stuff like this to wake people up...hes doing fine as of now, but i would appreciate the prayers because the blood clot procedures still have to be done, thanks
