Urgent prayer request!

This afternoon my stepson,  Angela's 20 year old brother Bryonm had a heart attack!!!!!

He had been at work and was having crushing chest pain. He went to a nearby clinic and he was put on the EKG which showed he was in the middle of an M.I. He was then airlifted to another hospital, and from there went into the cath lab. They found one artery (I forget which one and I'm very high on pain killers right now.) had "several" large clots in it. The cardiologist says that he probably has an ASD or PFO that had been missed. He'll be in ICU overnight, and on blood thinners, then tomorrow will have a bunch of tests done to determine what happened, and what's been missed.

Please keep him in your prayers! I myself am recovering from major surgery and can't get to the hospital. His dad has Angela and they're on their way home from Texas, and should be home sometime tomorrow. To my knowlege his mom, in souther IL, is NOT on her way up here! I've been fielding calls between the hospital, his dad, and family, and feel totally helpless.
