Sergey Korotya Update




Dr. Sergey Korotya, a member of our church family and the head doctor on the first floor of the baby hospital, had a heart attack in early April. Because he was not recovering in an acceptable way we decided to bring him to the United States for treatment. He arrived, along with Ira Grabko our translator, in Atlanta on Sunday afternoon, April 30. We had an appointment with Dr. Tompkins in Luverne on Monday and it was determined that Sergey needed to see a cardiologist. We had an appointment on Wednesday, May 3, with Dr. Crum in Montgomery who scheduled a heart catherization on Thursday afternoon. The catherization revealed blockage and Dr. Crum treated it with angioplasty and a stint. Sergey remains in Baptist Hospital South in Montgomery because his platelets are a little low. He should be released on Sunday or Monday. Thanks for your continued prayers.
