Please Pray for Rich Polick

Many of you have heard of our good friend, Rich Polick, who frequently drives the bus for ApologetiX and has been to more concerts than any other fan. Now we ask that his fellow ApologetiX fans please pray for him.
Rich went to the emergency room Monday morning, and the doctor said he has two aneurysms that require immediate attention.
MedicineNet.com defines an aneurysm as: A localized widening (dilatation) of an artery, vein, or the heart. At the area of an aneurysm, there is typically a bulge and the wall is weakened and may rupture. The word "aneurysm" comes from the Greek "aneurysma" meaning "a widening."
They admitted Rich to the hospital and plan to operate Thursday, using stents. Although this is outpatient surgery, it's still very serious.
Please pray for Rich. He gave us permission to let everybody know, and he appreciates your prayers.
