ARP News Update


For Tony Locke and family
From Calvin Draffin, stated clerk

Please be in prayer for Tony Locke and his family.

Tony went to the hospital with chest pains.  They ran tests and discovered a 100 percent blockage in one of his arteries.  They performed an emergency angioplasty and were able to remove the blockage, although the doctor said it was like drilling concrete.

Some heart damage was discovered but the doctor believes it could heal over time, since they were able to restore blood flow when they did.

Tony and his heart will need to be closely monitored over the next few days and months ahead.

It is a praise that God allowed Tony to get to the hospital when he did and that the operation went as well as it did.

But I would urge you to lift him and his family up in prayer now as Tony recovers and works with doctors in the coming days in getting his heart healthy again.

Tony is currently in the Cardiac Care Unit in the Northeast Georgia Medical Center in Gainesville, GA. He is pastor of First Presbyterian Church, Tucker, GA.
