Pastor Voddie Baucham Recuperates After Quadruple Bypass Surgery

Dean of theology at African Christian University in Zambia, Pastor Voddie Baucham, is presently recuperating from quadruple bypass surgery. This was after he endured an almost-fatal battle with heart failure in the past months. 

Last month, the preacher made an update on social media regarding his health challenge. He admitted that he had a very successful heart surgery and a heart transplant would no longer be necessary. He is being treated at Mayo Clinic in Florida.

According to The Christian Post, a spokesman of Bauchman said last Friday that doctors had found another blockage in Voddie’s heart. This necessitates another surgery which must be carried out in order to handle the blockage. 
The spokesperson equally asked for prayers for Bauchman and his doctors as he undergoes another surgery. There are expectations of updates on his health situation next week.
Before the announcement was made, Baucham was prepared for a two-week tour to promote his newly released book, Fault Lines: The Social Justice Movement and Evangelicalism's Looming Catastrophe. However, this tour had been cancelled previously. 
The President of Founder’s Ministries and Pastor of Grace Baptist Church in Cape Carol, Florida, Tom Ascol, made an update on Tuesday on the health of Baucham after his quadruple bypass surgery on Monday. He said;

"Quick Update on @VoddieBaucham He came through quad bypass surgery well late last night; had a good night; has been awake & responsive," Ascol tweeted. "Next 24-36 hours are crucial. Thank you for praying. He has a long road of recovery ahead. Praise God for His mercies on display!"

On Thursday, he also made a post announcing that Bauchman is out of the Intensive Care Unit and will start some physical therapy.

"He is stable & beginning some mild PT. Please pray for his continued improvement, that his pain would diminish, & that the Lord would continue to strengthen & encourage his wife and children," he wrote.

So far, the GoFundMe account Ascol set up to fund Bachman’s medical expenses has raised over $1.4 million.
