Following a recent hospital stay that detected internal bleeding and a new instance of heart arrhythmia, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry is receiving thorough testing and monitoring to understand the relationship between his medication for atrial fibrillation and the episode of internal bleeding, according to a news release from the Episcopal Church Public Affairs Office.
The necessary process of diagnostic appointments, treatment, and follow-up will take some weeks. To prioritize rest, and in keeping with doctors’ orders to avoid air travel in the near term, Curry will not do any in-person events for the remainder of June.
The public affairs office said Curry remains grateful for the outpouring of prayers and well wishes, and he covets Episcopalians’ support, moving forward.
