Gateway Church Pastor Robert Morris was airlifted to the hospital Sunday for emergency surgery. Debbie Morris, Robert’s wife, announced Monday he was back in surgery.
Both Debbie and Gateway Church kept churchgoers, family and more updated through social media.
According to Gateway Facebook posts, Morris had some complications over the weekend after surgery last Monday. He was then airlifted to the hospital where they discovered he had internal bleeding. CT results revealed he had a blood vessel bleeding in his abdomen and a blood clot the size of a cantaloupe. Doctors successfully stopped the internal bleeding.
“Pastor Robert’s surgery was successful in stopping the bleeding. Please continue to pray for no more bleeding and a quick and full recovery. Thank you all again for praying for him, Pastor Debbie, and the family. Your prayers are working!” Gateway Church posted on Facebook.
Here are the latest posts:
Pastor Debbie sent us an update from Pastor Robert that we wanted to pass along. The doctors believe he has some type of infection. They are running tests that will take a few days to come back. We are so encouraged by the incredible outpouring of prayers and support we have received. Thank you for continuing to cover Pastor Robert, Pastor Debbie, and his family in your prayers.
The doctors have discovered that Pastor Robert needs to have surgery to stop some internal blood loss. Please be in prayer that the Lord will guide the hands of the surgeon tonight!
The surgeons were able to stop the bleeding and Pastor Robert is stable. Praise God! The doctors will perform an angiogram later this morning to make sure there are no other sources of bleeding. Please continue to pray for our amazing leader and his family! We are blown away with your support. Thank you, family.
