After a heart CATH procedure on Monday September 21st, Keith Brady of The BRADYS was told that he needed to make immediate plans for open heart surgery that included 5 bypasses! The surgery was done on Tuesday September 22! It was a lengthy surgery but the Heart Surgeon declared it to be a definite success! However, the Surgeon did indicate that only 3 bypasses were able to be performed out of the five that were needed, due to the fact that the other two remaining damaged arteries were too far gone to be repaired! In spite of this fact, the Surgeon stated he was very pleased with the outcome! In his words, the three arteries that were repaired were already producing a far greater increase in blood flow than Keith’s pre-surgery condition! As with all surgeries of this type, the first 48 hours are very critical and there is a rather lengthy recovery period!
There were literally thousands of people praying for Keith and in fact in the few moments before surgery there were 6 preachers from three different states in the room praying with he and the family! PRAYER made the difference! The Bradys have had to cancel several weeks of bookings and it is undetermined at this time how many weeks may yet have to be canceled. This will be a weekly decision based on Keith’s continued progress, but they are believing that through the prayers of God’s people Keith will soon be back on the road ministering in song for the Lord as he so desires to do!
The BRADYS are asking for their friends across the country to keep Keith and the group in their prayers! Those wishing to send cards, letters, or financial donations to help with expenses, may send them to: Keith Brady, C/O The Bradys, 210 Crossing Lane #C-23, Dothan AL 36303.
