Georgette Short

“On July 28th while I was staying in Nairobi my heart started to beat too fast. I was admitted to the ICU at Aga Khan hospital in Nairobi once my heart was stabilised. I was there for two days and then a further two days in the general ward… I had a check-up with my doctor and he diagnosed atrial fibrillation, where the atria of the heart beat too quickly from time to time. I am on some new medication to treat this and to prevent blood clots. I will see my doctor again in the middle of September when I will know more about the long-term repercussions. I have been very conscious throughout the last week or so of God’s protection and presence. I was in Nairobi, staying at AIM’s guesthouse there so a friend who was also staying there and the manager were able to take me to the hospital quickly. I received excellent care there and was very conscious of God’s presence with me. It was a bit scary but I knew God’s peace. I had time to pray and read the Bible and just rest.” Since writing this Georgette has been back in hospital with a suspected lung infection. Please pray for healing and God’s continued protection over her, and pray that she will still be able to see him at work for her good.
