Update: Voddie Baucham To Undergo Coronary Bypass Surgery This Morning

Pastor Voddie Baucham is undergoing coronary bypass surgery today, the result of having a major setback with his heart and recovery.

Voddie was about to embark on a book tour for the launch of his excellent Fault Lines, when doctors discovered another blockage in his heart, the result of the weekly tests he stays close by to do. A spokesperson for Voddie explains:

“It was determined that he must have another procedure this weekend to deal with the blockage. Please pray for Voddie and his doctors as he undergoes this new procedure. We expect to have the next update on his condition early next week”

According to the Mayo Clinic, “Coronary bypass surgery is a procedure that restores blood flow to your heart muscle by diverting the flow of blood around a section of a blocked artery in your heart. Coronary bypass surgery redirects blood around a section of a blocked or partially blocked artery in your heart.”

This bad news comes less than a week after updating supporters that things were going great and on the up and up.

Lord willing if everything goes well today, we’ll go from weekly visits to monthly visits for the next couple of months, and if everything checks out, then by the end of may I should be released to go to quarterly visits.

At the time he said that “everything looks good,” and that he’s getting stronger every day, walking a mile at a time and doing pushups, situps, and squats, all while waiting for a release from his doctors that will let him do more, push things and see his heart challenged.

While saying, “We have to be prepared for the possibility that there are more [challenges] ahead,” he informed friends and supporters, “The good news is, I am no longer on a path to heart transplant.”
