Pray for Rod Carew.........Baseball Hall of Famer Rod Carew is preparing to receive a new heart and undergo a kidney transplant.His wife, Rhonda, confirmed the procedures on Thursday through the American Heart Association News.The 71-year-old former hitting star has struggled with heart issues since September 2015, when he had a heart attack and went into cardiac arrest while undergoing a procedure to open clogged arteries.A machine has kept Carew alive since he nearly died 15 months ago. Doctors say the kidney transplant will improve his chances for a strong recovery.After his heart attack, Carew was diagnosed with extreme heart failure, with his heart too weak to pump blood to the rest of his body. Doctors implanted into his chest a left ventricular assist device that took over the heart's pumping duties.
