Here at the beginning of the New Year, just starting in the Chatham Islands, we bring our prayers before God.

Once again I begin with the prayer I used last year:

My God, my Creator, my Redeemer, my Love
Spirit pervading all creation, of which I am a part
Spirit which moves within me and unites me to that whole
May we grow towards unity
May we help each other in our daily needs, earthly, spiritual and emotional
May I learn to have compassion for myself and others
May I be open to the promptings of the Spirit
So that we all may live in peace and love and rejoice in the glory of creation.
Let it be so.

On other threads on the Ship, especially those dealing with jlg's death, a great deal of pain is being expressed. For some this is caused by losing a friend, while for others her death has been a reminder of an abyss they stare into daily.

[Votive] for all who live with pain, of whatever kind

[Votive] for all for whom 2011 brought suffering

[Votive] for all who face 2012 with dread at what it might bring.

I have come to the sad realization that my mom is an alcoholic and why she isn't dead is a miracle in itself. Suffice to say Wednesday night was a nightmare - calling 911, hours in emergency - she is back home and we are meeting with her doctor on the 9th to discuss her addiction. I need prayers to be compassionate when needed and tough to be the bully she needs right now to hopefully overcome this and once again be the vital woman she once was. Prayers for others out there watching their parent/s making addictive choices to be strong and loving in the ways that will make a better difference for their loved ones lives. I am still, totally freaked out and so incredibly angry.

Today we're beginning the new year praying for Son #2, who broke his leg yesterday while sledding in the CA mountains with his young nephew at a winter resort -- he and the nephew were on the sled when it hit something and flipped, and as Son tried to protect the nephew his own leg somehow got caught under the sled. Anyway, he had to be airlifted to the local hospital, they found three breaks, and he now faces surgery to have pins inserted...it's going to be a long and expensive road for him to recover, and he's very worried about finances; more about that than the actual injury.

Within minutes of hearing this news, as we were talking about it with Son #1, we learned that this son's partner has been very sick for the past two weeks with some sort of bacterial ailment...one doctor dismissed it as a "bug," but a second doctor is quite concerned about it.

Prayers for DP, too, who is suffering from asthma and what sounds like bronchitis in the wake of Christmas; she has her own doctor's appointment this Wednesday to try and get better. She's been feeling better during the day but still struggles to breathe at night...has had to double her breathing treatments.

For relief of all the pain, suffering and dread that afflicts those of our number.

For healing for MotherA, and strength for LadyA.

For Gussie's friend C, for healing.

Remembering Erin.

For jlg and her victims.

For all those caring for elderly parents, including Campbellite and G Bee.

I would also say that the Telemum is suffering some objectively minor side effects and limited problems which are nonetheless getting her down. Her gout is mostly under control, thank the Lord, but healing of these nagging problems would be great too.

For Lyda*Rose's Raul and Marta and their family.

For healing for ErinBear's M. and H., and strength for their families. For healing for ErinBear.

For light to overcome the darkness.

Lord, have mercy on all those afflicted by the earthquake in Japan.

For healing for LutheranChiklet #2, and financial recovery as well. For healing for his partner. For healing for DP.

Our next-door neighbour, who is very frail and in poor health, has fallen downstairs for the second time this week. Please pray for her safety and that of her partner.

I have set some very important goals for the first quarter of 2012. It's very important that I meet them all.

K. has some goals that she is eager to meet, too.

For E., H., and A.

For what I am about to whisper.

Most urgently for G., who is losing her sight.

Last Friday (30 Dec.) i got the result of the biopsy. The pair of adjacent spots on my upper lung or bronchial area (i'm still a bit unclear on that) are indeed melanoma. I will be discussing what this means with my oncologist on 5 Jan., altho the nurse who reported the result to me went out of her way to emphasize that the CT-PET scan which had found the pair of spots found nothing else anywhere in my body. So i don't know what's in store for me. I would think some kind of chemotherapy would be part of it, which sounds unpleasant, but i really don't know if that would be the case. While i like to be informed about my body as much as feasible, i'm going to put off researching this until after i've met the oncologist and had the chance to have some kind of picture of the parameters of the situation. Before then anything i tried to research would probably tend to terrify me since, despite my best efforts, without knowledge i tend to fear the worst. Once again, thanks for the prayers -- knowing that prayers are going up on my behalf really helps.

still struggling a bit with the flare-up of symptoms that started christmas. I tried to go off the pain meds today so I could work but the pain came back and poleaxed me. so, back on the drugs and back to stoner-land. having lots of little wierdnesses otherwise, also. nothing i can't cope with I guess, but it sucks just the same. I really liked pretending to be normal. I'm in a lot of pain.

please pray for for N & G - mentioned on my codependence thread - spent time with both tonight and they're both very sad and suffering. moving forward, but it hurts.

could I also ask for a prayer for a big writing project? It's a big one, and a good one, but as always I fear failure so it's hard to start. but I have to start. I need courage and drive and tenacity and all that good stuff. it's very very worth it.

There are entire city libraries filled with writings by those less skilled than you, so dig in and do what you feel called to do.
And maybe give us a link when it is finished.

Sorry to be so verbose this morning, but I'm gettin ready to go to the doc right now but i'd like to ask a little prayer for my cat Pulsar. She is basically healthy and has always been good with the litter box, but all of a sudden in the last couple of months she has started urinating in places she's not supposed to. Tho not an animal person my cousin is very patient (she peed on his back pack) because he knows how much she means to me. Grace for guidance to know how to help her and make things better. (Not Shipmates, but others might say "just get rid of her". That is NEVER happening, God brought her into my life quite by accident and she is family for life, my adopted non-human daughter)

Posted by PrettyFly (# 13157) on :
 
I haven't been on the Ship, much less this thread, in ages. But I wouldn't ask if I wasn't desperate.

Brief back story - hubby is self employed and has been doing progressively well, but not well enough, quickly enough. When I returned to work after having the baby I went from full time to part time, although we originally hoped I could stay home full time. Since then we have survived mostly on very generous gifts from family, but now we're just drowning. Every month we wonder how we're going to pay the bills. We even moved to get lower rent. We owe a scary amount in back taxes and are constantly dipping into savings (and yes, I know it's good that we even have any savings, but we won't for long if we keep this up).

It has now reached the point where I have asked my supervisor if I can come back 4 days a week instead of 3. It would make a huge difference, not least because we'd get health insurance back, but it really is the last resort because it's important for both of us that I have time with the baby, not to mention how crappy hubby felt about himself having to ask me to do this.

Problem now is that it affects the girl who covers for me on my off days. She works in a different dept on the other days where she gets paid much less than the days she covers for me, and where I know she is unhappy. And while I feel awful and horribly selfish trying to take a day back from her, she is single, living with flatmates with no baby to support etc, so really, I feel like my need is greater than hers.

So I guess I'm asking for prayers that I will be able to get a 4th day at work starting very soon, unless some other solution miraculously presents itself...

Report from Back Home is grandma 'just' had some high blood pressure. Not sure if I should believe them, because I found out over my Christmas visit her primary caregivers think the cure for when she's having audio and visual hallucinations is to have a little nap.

Thanks, thanks, and thanks again for the prayers.

My oncologist said that the type of situation i am in can have a wide variety of outcomes.

The negatives: When melanoma has shown up in more than one location it is always a serious matter, and by the current law of averages my chance of living multiple decades and reaching the age of my 98-year old grandmother is statistically low at this time. (But that's at this time; who knows what medical science may come up with at any time, and of course there are always exceptions to statistical averages.)

The positives: The 2 locations where something was found were both tiny, and i have none of the symptoms that would be cause for worry. Also that the 2 spots weren't in the brain or liver is also very good.

So -- especially since there is a great variability in outcomes making hard predictions difficult, that means nothing is sure. Which is exactly the way life always is! Having to deal with this situation just means that means that i am being reminded of this fact in a less abstractly intellectual way. More about specific treatment options next week. Tonight is the eve of Epiphany, the glorious Feast of Lights. Tomorrow is another work day (which lots of folks don't have), and tomorrow evening i begin a 5 session seminar that could point to new more productive/fulfilling direction in my life. So I give thanks that life goes on, and my prayer is that my body, mind and soul stay healthy and that i can have useful and creative goals to strive for.

[Votive] praying for all, by name.

I am on the Maintenance Meds from Hell; I have neuropathy in my hands and feet, and all my joints are terribly stiff and painful. (I was just kneeling down to look into a cabinet - and had to ask my daughter to come and help me up.) I have to take said meds to prevent a recurrence of the cancer, but it's discouraging.

The docs keep trying to find other meds to help balance the imperative ones, but nothing has worked so far. Prayers to help them find the right mix (preferably without making me sleep 20 hours a day) would be much appreciated.

I would appreciate prayers for discernment and wisdom. At our church (as at many others I suspect), just a few people do a lot of different tasks and now one of the few is recovering from a stroke. I have been considering getting more involved but am wary of offering to do something and then not having the time or energy to follow through...

Our son-in-law Billy is now in ICU, in critical condition...there's been no definite diagnosis, and we may not get that until Monday, but the indicators suggest a couple of equally scary, extremely serious diseases. Our son Brian has gotten almost no sleep in the last week and has been staying at the hospital 24/7; he tries to put up a brave front for us over the phone, but it doesn't always work.

Meanwhile our other son Rob will be undergoing surgery for his compound leg fractures this coming Monday. He is far more upset about Billy than about his own medical issues, but he's also very worried about finances, and is feeling helpless and defeated.

Finally, in our family medical rockslide, please pray for my partner, Ellen, who has COPD and has been battling with a bad case of bronchitis since Christmas...she was prescribed some steroid therapy and a new breathing treatment and is recovering quickly, but she has some pulmonary tests and scans coming up that we always find anxiety-provoking.

Thanks again, Shipmates, for your support. Our sons have, uncharacteristically, asked for prayers, which indicates how scared and stressed they are right now.

Hey folks,

I'm requesting prayers for my pal Polly, who has a tumor on her esophagus and is going through treatment (chemo and radiation).

I'm still concerned about my own weird semi-random shortness of breath, especially since Polly and I were presenting with a number of very similar symptoms and had similar diagnostic tests done. I don't think it's esophagus for me, but it's time (now that my cold is mostly done) to call my doc and ask about where to go from here, test-wise.

I managed to hold it together at church when people were cornering me and trying to get info about her. Between her and Jen, I really don't want to be Helpful Info Source right now; I've got my own processing to do.

Having a hard time being shunned by beloved friend who wouldn't return my texts/emails. that friend sent me and the Magician presents through the mail for Xmas - there is only 4 miles distance between us. Then beloved friend sent me an e-mail cc:ing somebody else from highschool to this friend get in touch with somebody that person is looking for. I just wrote back I would do that and did e-mails to introduce.

I realize though as the pain still grows, sometimes God has us apart to grow. This may be one of those times. I have known said friends for over 30 years. It hurts a lot as that person has been there for me and viscera and really means a lot to me. But I honestly feel like there is less stress in my life as I seem to not make them happy.

Thank you all for your prayers. The little boy, M, got through his surgery and is now recovering. My friend, H., made it through his exceptionally long surgery yesterday and now is beginning his recovery also, which I suspect will be quite a process. I continue to pray for him and his family especially. [Votive]

I also had my appointment at the teaching hospital. I give thanks for the very kind specialist I met. It was also difficult because my problem remains a mystery. I need another complicated breathing test, and there are no available appointments until mid-February. Then I will see the doctors again in March. It can be hard to wait. sigh. [Votive]

We are just getting our latest update from Brian and Billy's friend/coworker...it sounds like Billy has developed sepsis overnight, which they're going to be treating aggressively even though he's in a very fragile state. This is going to be a very stressful day for us all; we're not going to be calling Brian for the rest of the day, because we're sure he's going to be in with Billy and won't need the interruption. Thank you all for your continued prayers. We're so worried not just for Billy but for Brian, who tends to be very strong and stoic, but who sounded so weary this morning, and started sobbing over the phone. Billy's mom had a rough day yesterday too.

Praying for all others who are struggling with critical illness.

If anyone can spare a prayer for us, I would be thankful...

Mother in law has recently come out of hospital after an illness but is now unwell again and really needs to see the GP but doesn't want to.....

My mother's COPD is continuing to deteriorate majorly and now she barely speaks at all, as well as showing signs of circulation problems.

My dear father-out-law has been admitted to hospital for testing with what look like a rapid series of mini-strokes/impaired blood flow to the brain, so we are all anxious about him.

My youngest daughter has been unwell, and yesterday my third daughter was physically assaulted at school, in front of many witnesses. The perpetrator has been temporarily suspended for doing this, but my daughter is still pretty shaken up as well as feeling a bit bruised and battered.

And it's only the first week of January....not a wonderful start to the New Year [Roll Eyes]

No word yet on Billy's condition; although his friends tell us that his color is better after his transfusion. Rob's leg surgery is happening right now; we found out that a couple of his surgeons work for LA professional sports teams, which made us feel better about his level of care. But money is going to be a big factor in both families. Billy and Brian were actually in the process of building a home -- that project has ground to a halt -- and Rob and his family live in a walk-up apartment that he can barely get into/out of with his cast.

Please pray for the moms -- we are so exhausted right now and every time the phone rings we steel ourselves for more bad news.:-(

Billy's condition has remained the same overnight...the doctors want to try dialysis to get toxins out of his system, but he's too fragile for that process right now. No one is giving us any kind of diagnosis...and his family is one of those old-school Southern families where everything is expressed in euphemisms, so I'm not sure that our son Brian is going to actually hear medical terminology that makes sense to us.

Rob is home and resting and seems to be more at peace now that he has a proper cast on his leg, although it still hurts a lot; we moms and dads are pooling our resources to get someone into the home a couple days a week to do light housekeeping and just be an adult presence while Rob's wife is out working.

DP, who has COPD, has been fighting a bad case of bronchitis through all this...I've been reading some alt.med ways to help manage this disease, and last night we were talking about things like yoga breathing and aromatherapy and daily walks to help strengthen her lungs.

Praying for any kind of good news for Billy and Brian; praying for some way to ease the economic burden on Rob and Carrie; praying that DP, who is feeling VERY depressed this morning, cares for herself while trying to care for the boys.

I am feeling really sad today. I took my little cat to the vet today as she has lost a lost of weight - 1/3 of her total weight altogether. The vet has given her a pretty poor prognosis and wants her back in for bloods and x-rays tomorrow. he suspects something is seriously wrong with her, but doesn't know what yet - he has listed stuff like diabetes, renal failure and cancer.

I have already decided that if it is worse case scenario we won't go for aggressive treatment as she is old. It would be cruel to put her through such treatment when she is unlikely to survive.

I know it is just a cat, but she has been a huge source of comfort over the years, especially when I was feeling very, very sad.

Our DiL's best friend, an MD, is telling us not to become disheartened; that this is not an unexpected symptom, and that the doctors are responding in standard ways.

Short updates: Son-in-law is responding well to dialysis, and friends and family were finally able to rest...no one is talking diagnoses with us, but no one told us about his being ill in the first place, so we're not pushing the issue; just steeling ourselves for what we think is the inevitable, and for helping our son deal with anxiety about his own health and with the practicalities of caring for a sick partner.

Son #2 had a successful surgery; was in some intense pain, but they changed his medication and he's feeling much better. We were also really heartened to see his cousin and in-laws all stepping up to spend week-long stints with the family for the next six weeks, while Son is still pretty helpless. Meanwhile we are pooling resources with his dad to help with babysitting and light housekeeping that our son had been doing himself.

DP has an appointment with a pulmonologist next week; I'm reading up on complementary medicine related to COPD to see what kinds of lifestyle changes we can make that will maximize DP's health and wellbeing. (We are studiously avoiding talking too much about this with one another, using our kids' respective crises as a dodge.)

Thank you for keeping us all in your prayers. It makes a difference; it really does.

At work, we all have these A4 x 3" deep plastic boxes. They are explicitly for storing stuff in the evening that you want to hold over to work on the next day (rather than stick it back in the general filing system). Today, two people, separately, came across from another team, very insistent that I had file *X*. "No", I said, "I've not had any File Xs this week". Turns out, my Team Leader had, indeed, put File X in my plastic box last night without even having the courtesy to mention it. They are Storage Space, not a fucking medium of communication, you passive-aggressive bitch.

May I kill her?

[Votive] I'd like to ask for prayers for my friend and one-time radio co-host D, who had severe chest pains which he said were not serious, only gas pockets, which he's had in the past. But after repeated urgings and 2 days of pain, including having to sit up all night unable to lie down, he finally went to the VA hospital today. He had inflammation of the lining around his heart/lung area and tachycardia. He was given antibiotics and told he should be OK in a week or so, but will be monitored for 30 days. It sounded scarey to me.

Thank you for your prayers on behalf of our kids.

Today Billy is being weaned off the medicine they've been using to keep him immobile, and also being weaned off his ventilator. His last lung x-ray seemed a bit clearer, and except for jaundice his bloodwork seems to be improving incrementally. Last night he was able to respond to Brian by trying to turn his head. Team Billy, Brian and Billy's friends and work colleagues, have been busy praying and fundraising for medical expenses, bringing homecooked food around to the hospital for Brian and his MiL (who've basically been living there) and allowing them some respite hours. I'm truly moved by Team Billy's compassion, generosity and organizational prowess.

Meanwhile son Rob seems to be able to move around a bit more with his cast (something his doctors want him to do), needs fewer pain meds and also seems a bit more cheerful. So the stress in this household is becoming less about the medical issue and more concentrated on regaining their financial footing.

Again, thanks to all; and prayers for all.

Our son-in-law is steadily waking up from the induced coma; he's now able to communicate nonverbally somewhat, although he gets very tired and frustrated; and he's being given a new drug to jump-start his bone marrow. He's also started physical therapy today. Son #1 is feeling much more encouraged, has been able to get some sleep at home for a couple of nights, and is starting to address some of the insurance/disability/financial issues that household will be facing. Son #2 and his family are taking their own medical and financial challenges one day at a time; his leg is still painful but he's able to be more mobile, which is helpful in the healing process.

I don't think it will be an issue after all. I called the nurse who faxed me the form to fill out and fax back, and told her of my concerns, and she said don't worry about the stuff on the form, all they needed was my signature. I think the form is generic, with sections that dont apply toall situations. So i think i hit the panic button too soon (as is my wont [Roll Eyes] )

Off to NC tomorrow for my 2nd opinion from the University of North Carolina health center. While in Raleigh, i'll get a chance to visit a couple of days with my brother (the only genetic family member i'm in regular communication with), his wife, son, and 3 great canines.

I just got an update on Polly's condition, and it's not good at all. Fr. Temp thinks she's dying, barring a miracle. We crave your prayers for her. We've been told that she really appreciates the prayers of our church community, so I'll be sure to let her know that you're praying for her.

I'd also like prayers for J. who is in a bad mental space post a sexual assault, and for my friend Clara, whose beloved dog appears to be dying. The dog is one of her links with her late husband, and her constant companion since the husband's death, and she's a friend of Polly's as well, so it's all a bit much.

I'm a bit flipped out tonight myself with all the bad news in our little church community, although I'll probably be a lot better in the morning. Thanks for listening; it does help.

Please hold our neighbors in your prayers. They are on vacation on the other side of the country. Last night their dog, staying with some other neighbors, became very ill. I took her to the animal hospital, where they discovered internal bleeding from a ruptured mass on her spleen. The poor thing had to be put down, and the family is very sad that they were so far away and couldn't say goodbye. I nearly lost it when on the phone with them last night I heard their 5YO daughter say, "we are all crying in the car! we love her so much!"

Please keep Firstborn Son in your prayers as well. He is job searching to little effect. He has moved home and is on our couch, and has been for five months now.

Thank you Lord for the ship.

I just lost my job. There's a possibility I might be able to work for my old employers again, but I won't know for at least a week as it's depending whether they get work themsleves.

Please Lord, give me patience and peace while I'm waiting to know.

Show me what to do.

O Lord,hear my prayer.

As I prayed with my daughter last night, I included a prayer for Ship people who need God's help, thinking of you all here, but not about to make my 3yo listen to a recitation of names. She asked about that, and I explained there were people mommy knew through an internet website called the ship who needed God. In conclusion, she said "God, please help those Ship people get a roof. I'll build them a roof!"

So I'm not exactly sure how her prayer is relevant, but we're all being prayed for at least!

thanks for praying re Lord P's phone - it got sorted with little hassle. Now just the problem of why his bank card was refused as the local fraud squad is checking it - probably because the bank still have him in South Wales when he's now living at Horsham. Thankfully, he's living with a Christian who's loaned him some cash until he can sort it out.Prayer would be appreciated!

I have a sermon to write for Sunday morning - All Age Worship, so it needs maybe even more attentive preparation than usual. I have work this afternoon until 9pm. And. I have lost (and urgently need) my driving license. It's in the flat somewhere, I know it is - I had it in my hand only thee weeks ago and thought to myself "I must put this safe because I'm going to need it" but I've spent hours searching already and am running out of places to look.

I don't usually pray for things which basically are a result of my own lack of organisation and which can be solved by my own hard graft, but I need help and I need it quickly so that I can get on and finish this service with a clear mind. So your prayers would be appreciated...

My friend R. is in need of your prayers again. His driver's license was revoked on what appears to be merely a clerical error, but the motor vehicle bureau is giving him a hard time about getting it reinstated. Meanwhile, he lives in a remote area and is running out of groceries. He has no chance of anyone helping him until next Tuesday at the earliest. He assures me he has enough food in the house to last until then, but I am worried sick. Please pray that help may arrive and that the motor vehicle bureau will see the light at last.

[Votive] For all, especially Malik 3000 for health and God's peace.

My problem isn't that serious but I am planning to change churches this year after 6 years for various reasons and am finding even just sticking to the decision really tough and stressful.

I'm in my early thirties, but single with no kids so I'm kind of scared I won't find a church locally where I will fit in. In my experience evening services cater for youth (and sometimes their parents) and twenty somethings, and morning services cater for young families and the elderly. My church is like this and I feel I don't fit there anymore. Also I have a group of friends there who I see regularly, but lately feel like I have less and less in common with many of them and that they have become unwelcoming to new people in the church. So I will chat to new people but if I invite them out with my friends they are not always happy about it.

Now they are starting to leave me out of things too which is really hurtful but really hard for me to discuss with them and also explain I am not leaving the church because of them. I get explanations like I don't have an i-phone or they just organised something last minute so couldn't be bothered contacting everyone. They used to be really inclusive and welcoming to everyone so I don't understand what has happened. I want to stay friends but refuse to be cliquey or base my friendships on what possessions we share.

My volunteer work with a Christian organisation is something I really enjoy, and wonder if this year I should just stick with that and not worry too much about church. I have made friends there but most live quite far from me so I only catch up with them socially now and then and am not really close with them as I previously was with my church friends.

Continued prayers for our children and child-in-law...

Billy is doing very well -- we were actually able to speak with him on the phone for a minute or so yesterday -- but he is still very weak, and he's now alert enough mentally to be distressed by his condition and frustrated with the necessary indignities involving his care. Brian is being very patient and kind -- occasionally being firm when Billy wants to, say, get up and go home -- but when he talks to us you can tell how stressed and vulnerable he is.

Meanwhile Son #2 Rob has been having a few rough days; his leg is hurting mightily, he needs a cast re-fitting and he's feeling very helpless/useless sitting at home and creating stress/anxiety for his family. He's also worried about finances, as his bills start coming in and he has to wait to send them on to the health insurance company.

DP gives both of them stay-strong pep talks and motherly advice every day...but as she said to me this morning, "Why is it that every time I get off the phone I just want to cry?" Ditto; it's hard to hear the boys upset over the phone.

Thanks all for your prayers. Last night they had an in-room pray-in for Billy, and he told his friends and family, "I know I shouldn't be alive," and expressed his gratitude to everyone (which would include all of you!) keeping him in their prayers.

Prayers for all today, for God's prsence and peace. [Votive] [Votive] [Votive]

She has called police and social services who are saying they cannot intervene as there is no legal custody order. They agreed access arrangements at the time of the divorce.

He has Narcissistic personality disorder and a gambling addiction. His daughter has a number of medical issues which I doubt he is able to cope with properly.

Sister in law is taking some people to his home to try and reason with her. Please pray for them all and especially for protection. I don't trust him at all.

As much as I am trying not to take it on, it hurts to see her like that.I wanted to see a healthy KC, not one all drunk and maybe on something else. I worry about her, I've already lost more than 1 friend to addictions that are in heaven. Don't want to lose another one. She's going to Canada then moving to Hawaii.

Praying for each by name. So much hurt. So many worries. Kyrie eleison!

*********************************

I will be starting treatment in the next few days with a drug called Yervoy. My prayer is -- first, of course -- that it will stifle or eliminate the melanoma, and that it will do so without doing a number on my liver. Secondly that it doesn't have grotty side effects. I give a prayer of thanks that my trip to the U of North Carolina med center for a second opinion decreased my worries particularly about the liver. But of course we dont know for sure about what's going to happen until it does. May i maintain a positive attitude and trust in God's love. May i be open to God filling me and may i "graciously accept God's healing." May my medical caregivers have discernment. May my goals and in particular my participation in the previously-mentioned leadership seminar at my church not be inhibited.

Could i get a prayer for my brother in North Carolina and family. While in NC he told me that he has been laid off from his job of 36 years (since he got out of grad school!). He was the dirctor of one of the research units and seemingly although he works in a research institute the new management (none of whom has a scientific background) isn't much into actual research. He gets paid and stays on the health plan throughout 2012, so no immediate financial worries, but it was quite a shocker, and he loved his work and had no plans to quit yet.

MRIs sound worse than they are. bring an eye pillow (preferably lavender scented) to wear the whole time. put it on and let it sit, comfortably, long before they roll you in. you'll have no idea about the space. and the space isn't as tiny as it seems anyway. I did a lot of slow careful yoga breathing at the beginning with my first, because I was scared. after about 15 minutes, I was just bored. I composed songs in my head to the beat of the weird clanging. if you focus on the breathing, you can almost fall asleep... [Biased]

many prayers your way.

Malik, perhaps you can mentally compose the first chapter of a really dynamite book during your MRI.
Or write a sermon - just don't practice the hand gestures for use during its delivery.
Or remember all of the inticing women in your life who made you wonder if just maybe...
One thing, though, if you are taking medicine to relax you, and you have stairs to climb when you get home, ask whomever is driving you to help you up or down the stairs; you may possibly be wobbly, or even very,very talkative, for a brief time afterwards.
Prayers are with you, in any event.

The worst thing is the noise - it's very loud. You can bring along a CD of your favourite music to listen to, to distract you from the noise, but you still hear the noise. But it really wasn't as scary as I imagined - it was really only scary before I went in, because I imagined it would be much worse than it was. Actually, I later volunteered to be a participant in a research study which involved going into an MRI scanner for about an hour, doing various cognitive tests, which I would never have dared do if I hadn't already had an MRI test and known it wasn't so bad. I will be praying for you and I hope it will also be not scary for you.

Malik, I've had 2 MRIs, and as others have said, it's noisy. But at least you are prepared for that. I shut my eyes (can't see the size of the tube then) and concentrated on prayer. The second time, I was mostly in when I suddenly remembered I still had my (metal) upper dental plate in situ. Magnets! Would it fly out - and where to? How? I frantically pressed the alarm button they give you to hold, (and straightway started to come out) only to be told a bit techily, "there's no need to press it more than once!" As it turned out, the plate didn't matter and no, it didn't budge. So think of me and try to smile! Many prayers rising for your peace of mind and a good outcome, too. God bless.

See, yam, even careful, experienced drivers lose it sometimes!

I ran a red light a couple of days ago downtown because it was only at a pedestrian crossing in the middle of the block after working hours instead of an actual street and there were no people waiting to cross. I also got no ticket.

I'm being harassed to a lesser extent (which doesn't help the calming spirit i need for healing but i'm at a slightly higher level, i've seen it all before and consider the source and it fazes me less, plus i'm ready to move on anyway and not because of my medical situation) Also prayers for those doing the harassment that God will touch their hearts and consciences.

PS - re MRI, just curious, how noisy is it and what kind of noise?

His court date is coming up soon. He was advised by attorneys to write to the judge stating his case for why he believes his driver's license was erroneously revoked. He got the letter off yesterday. Please pray that the judge will agree that his license should be restored.

I posted this on the Thanks & Praise thread, but wanted to share it here too.
I am happy to be able to post an update from my friend Richard, who was arrested in Zambia, charged with stealing his own property:

today I received my discharge from the High Court as the Drug Enforcement Agency withdrew the case. Hardly a surprise as they admitted to me several times they had no evidence. That also triggered the release of my vehicles, computers etc.
He added
So just over 9 months of this nightmare have come to an end. Police cells, prison, court appearances, threats of deportation, death threats, loss of personal possessions, three robberies etc etc. but what I'll remember is the extraordinary friendship and kindness I've received from ordinary Zambians. i'll never forget what my Zambian friends did for me. I would often get stopped in Mchini compound, or in town, by people I didn't know, and they would tell me how they were praying for me. Fantastic (although I began to wonder if the prayers were the CAUSE of the problems, being an atheist!)

However, he did have this to add
But I will never forgive the people who did this to me, because it was driven by personal greed, by people who were already earning good salaries. The fact that they are all members of a small charismatic church run by a lying despot, merely aggravates the issue

So maybe I can ask for additional prayers that his view of Christianity which has been somewhat blackened by this experience might be softened...

But in general, thank God that (finally) this whole terrible unjust mess has been resolved.

Much prayer for all

Malik, having had quite a few MRIs, the noise is very variable. They normally start with a few hugely noisy thuds in sequence, then faster hammering noises a few time in sequence, then it moves round a bit and does the same two things again somewhere else...and so on...and then builds up to one huge long noisy bit...and a couple of other finishing off sequences, so the noise comes from different bits of the magnets as they move round inside the machinery and in different patterns. Takes about 20 mins to do a decent one for me. I've had some where I lay on my back, and the ones for breast cancer you lay on your front, so it depends which bit they want a look at and from what angle. Apparently some centres have new improved spacious MRI machines so there just might be one of those somewhere near you if you really don't get on with it. Prayers aplenty...

Comet's and Amber's description of the MRI noise was pretty close. It was hardly worse than the New York subway. Plus that adevan semi-zonked me out. [Smile] Whoopee.

[Yipee] And here's where the thanks and praise come in -- the MRI confirmed that my brain had no sign of anything of concern! (That was a slightly nagging worry.)

I start 1st of 4 chemo sessions (Yervoy) on Tuesday. Usually it has no side effects. And my big prayer of course is that it does what it was designed to do. [Votive]

Thank you for your prayers. Was at the funeral today of my sons' friend. Strange mixture of grief and thanksgiving.

I have been at funerals of Christians before, where they have had a (relatively) long life and served the Lord. The service was kind of sad for the family, yet rejoicing that the beloved was now in the arms of Jesus.

This young man jumped off a tower block. He knew Jesus. He had suffered depression. He overcame it. He suffered it again, and this time it got the better of him.

I also had to be linesman at my youngest son's football match this afternoon. And this evening I went to a wedding. Everything feels a bit unreal.

That's just not right. I hope there is some recourse or satisfaction for you.

Meanwhile, at our shack, the proverbial doo-doo has really hit the ventilator, so I'm really concerned about the parish meeting. We are in an interregnum and the low-level irritation that folks have had for the interim rector has a good chance of boiling over. So if you can spare a prayer for us, that would be much appreciated.

Not nearly as dire as many health concerns here, but may I ask your prayers for healing for my foot? I suffered a herniated disk (well, 2 at the same time, actually) in September, which resulted in excruciating pain due to pressure on the sciatic nerve. It is feeling much better, thank God, but there has been some nerve damage resulting in a drop foot, which means I can't lift my right foot all the way.

It makes walking rather awkward and tiring. The neurosurgeon says it is likely that it will not heal all the way, but is having me get an epidural steroid injection on Friday in order to reduce any inflammation that may be getting in the way of whatever healing may be possible.

I am terrified of having a big horrible shot in my back. They use local anesthesia but many people find it quite painful anyway. I'm such a baby about shots or needles at the best of times.

So please pray for strength for me and healing for my foot. It's not going to kill me if it doesn't heal, but I will certainly be most relieved and grateful if it does heal. Thanks.

Thank you so much, Telepath, for your work here in summarizing.

I might not have been clear: the harassment is coming from a church member. Things are actually okey-dokey at w*rk.

I am receiving good counsel - much better so far than when I reported harassment at work previously. I feel a lot safer than I did over the weekend. Having been bullied/harassed by psycho bosses ... and having had complaints blown off or used against me ... I am very much in sympathy with shipmates feeling harassed/bullied, especially at work.

Spare me some prayers as I learn to put some ass-kicking boots on. You will certainly be in mine. I am fortunate to have the support of this community. Much love!

The biopsy for H, mentioned on 30 January, turned out cancerous although it is quite small (c 10 mm). She's going for an operation on 2nd March then a course of radiotherapy.

[Votive] for H, J, M & C.

Also for Eldest Daughter; her relationship which looked so hopeful and had made her so happy has fallen to bits. Her partner is quite a bit older, has two kids already and has changed his mind about having any more. She's moved back in with us, which combined with the uncertainty over her job, may be for the best for now. Prayers for L please. [Votive]

[Votive] continuing for Telepath, for her ministry of prayer and her own intentions.

Hi,

I don't normally post on this thread, although I do regularly read it.

I do have a request though. A job has come up that looks like it could be perfect for me, although it would have a rather large impact on us as a family. The job is in China! If you could please pray that I / we recieve guidance in this decision I would be grateful. My first reaction is a go for it one, but I want to be sure.

Thank you

Tom

For Sioni Sais' H, for healing. For H, J, M, and C. For Eldest Daughter to at least have certainty over her job, and to be comforted in her sadness.

For Anyuta and the family. For Anne.

For all in situations with no answers, and especially K.

For wisdom for Tom Day.

For employment for Malin and relief of stress on the family.

So, I still need funding to stay in my job and time's a-wasting. Behold the sudden increase in my prayer-discipline, which is purely coincidental.

For M., who is seriously overworked right now.

Very worried for H, who called to say she's been asked to have a SECOND biopsy elsewhere in her body before she's even gotten the results of the first--it's not looking good. She has a wee daughter and there are very good reasons why it would be even worse than usual for her to be left with only her father to raise her. And H is not even a Christian...

And we just heard this morning that a fellow LCMS pastor lost his entire family in a horrible car accident--except the baby.

Our family update: Rob's leg is healing, and his mood is improving exponentially; he reports that in a few weeks he might be upgraded to a walking boot, which is pretty amazing considering that his foot was more or less dislocated from his ankle, and he's now carrying around 30 pins, a plate or two and a titanium rod. (Air travel is never going to be easy for him now!) Finances are another story -- the bill for just his airlift to the hospital came to $27K, and the kids just don't know how much of this their insurance will pay; lots of anxiety about the longterm financial burden of this accident.

Billy is doing so much better; he can talk, his mind is quickly coming out of the anesthesia fog, he's able to sit up for short periods, he's been officially graduated to "real" food, he's down to one IV...all good things; a miracle, really, since his doctors didn't think he'd make it out of his health crisis.

But now that he's moving toward going home, we're all having to come to terms with his prognosis, which is not good based on his symptoms; we're waiting to hear about some biopsy results. So this has tempered our happiness. And we're worried about our son Brian, who's had to shoulder all of this and may be facing much more difficult challenges in the months ahead. The two of them had just bought a new house, too, and are facing all the expenses that come with home ownership.

So thank you for your prayers, and please continue to pray for our kids, especially Billy and Brian.

Love the way you worded that, Telepath! [Big Grin]

Praying for everyone.

I've not been able to get to the computer much in the last couple of days, but a person who works more closely with the manager than i do, and who himself is a very decent co-worker, talked with me and told me to relax and not to take the manager's outburst too seriously -- he said the manager is given to hyperbole. (I do tend to take things literally) Indeed since then i notice that said manager has seemed to make a point of being pleasant to me. (I also think my co-worker possibly may had talked with him also). So i feel alot calmer and able to relax and let God's healing Spirit fill me.

AND ... having had the first of 4 infusions the day before yesterday, i feel absolutely normal with no noticeable side effects to speak of! I am so much more fortunate than many getting infusions. Praise God!!!

So now my main prayer is that it does the job it was intended to do.

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. All of you are in my thoughts and prayer

A message from Billy -- it was repeated on his "Team Billy" FB page, but it extends to everyone everywhere who's been thinking of him/praying for him: "I just want everyone to know how thankful I am for all of your thoughts and prayers. I want you to know you are the reason I am getting better. I am working as hard as I can each day but it is because of you that I am still here. There is no other reason for me to be alive other than everyone's faith and positive energy. So I want to thank each and every one of you for keeping my spirits up with your words of encouragement, with your class room of cheers, and with your prayers. Thank you!"

I'd appreciate prayer atm.

I have been put on different antidepressants and it's taking a while to get used to them and for previous ones to leave the system. My moods are up and down and I find myself in tears and unable to cope with simple tasks for no apparent reason.

It's making life difficult at work and I've already met with the "pull yourself together" and "think positive" responses from people which I find hard to do.

Work is made more stressful as the planned "restructure" is still under consultation and many face losing their jobs or being downgraded. [Frown] Those that have left are not being replaced which means the time I'm having off sick does not go down well.

I keep wishing I had a magic wand to make it all go away.

I just had to say this publicly, because it pisses me off--- it's always people who knee-jerk say stuff like this that expect to be showered with comfort and support when it's their turn to crash. The fact that they can't cope with your feelings is probably a sign that they can't cope with feelings, period.

Peace to you, Nanny. You're a special lady, and I pray that holds you in a standing position. And sends you kind people who will hold you as well.

As much as I have developed severe scepticism about God's receptiveness of our prayers and protection of us given that this scenario ever entered our lives:

For M as she prepares to testify next week against the man who violently attacked her and worse on a bright summer's morning at her job looking after children, for all of us who are not sleeping except to have troubled dreams, for the court for fairness and justice, that we might have a guilty plea that will spare all of us additional heartbreak and sorrow, for her strength and that we can support it. That everyone could be as thoughtful, decent, honest and helpful as the police have been. That we are thankful that it is not a murder trial.

Prayers needed for my 12-year-old nephew Rhys: his vision has seriously degenerated over the last six years. He has tunnel vision and no night vision. He is getting an MRI and test for retinitis pigmentosa later this month. We have no grandchildren and the lad means the world to me. He is my younger sister's only son.

Continued prayers for both my depression and my back pain would be appreciated.

My antidepressant dosage has been increased and I've been signed off for 2 weeks.

I would like the pain clinic to notify me as to when they can do the injections in my back. The cold weather does not help it at all, and I'm wary of slipping/falling on icy pavements and any jolt would make things worse.

I'd also appreciate prayers for tomorrow morning when my landlady is coming to inspect the house. My "boyfriend" has assisted me in cleaning each room but I'm frightened it won't be enough.

Landlady's visit did not go well. Despite all our hard work cleaning she thinks the place is dirty. I need to repaint all rooms as they are looking "tired" and she is not happy with the work that my ex did. I've got to clean throughout, clear all the ivy from the side of the house and change the wiring of the internet my ex put in. She knows about my back problems but was more interested in whether I'm working (she does not like people on benefit living in her houses)

All this on top of my health problems and work worries. I can't cope.

Please pray for guidance as to how to deal with this, or a new place to live.

This thread has worked miracles in the past and I did not expect to be able to speak to her on the phone at home today - so good to hear her voice again. She is having problems remembering things since her collapse - we hope this will clear up.

Prayers that Kelly finds her keys. I empathise totally, having been in similar situations all too often. It's no fun,having to put one's whole life on hold for something so seemingly trivial.

So far i'm still feeling good, just a little skin itchiness at times some of which i'm petty sure is from the treatment i'm getting. Continuing prayers that it may do what it's supposed to do.

continuing prayers for my cousin to internalise the need for a changed focus in his life if he is to have a real chance at success in life.

i've put off thinking about it lately because what are normal transactions for most can seem overwhelmingly complicated for me, but i really need to find an uncomplicated way to obtain an inexpensive and reliable car. I've not had one for 2 years and due to where i live the lack of one has really inhibited me doing things i really need/want to do

Thanks to God for my flatmates who are dearies, for friends I will see tomorrow, and for family who take care of me.

I've had an outbreak of the cellulitis on my left foot, where i had it before approx. 3 yrs ago. The plus side is that I'm not in any pain like i was before because i caught it sooner -- i spent the biggest part of saturday in the ER and am taking antibiotics. However there isn't an almost immediate noticing of subsiding of the rash like last time.

I'd be concerned about this anyway, as i think it's rather nasty and the infection can get in the blood. But given my ongoing treatment for metastatic melanoma, i'm as concerned about how this affects that. It's good though that what i'm being infused with (ipilimumab) is not chemo in the standard way -- instead of suppressing the immune system it does the opposite, i.e., takes the brakes off so that my own immune system, rather than a chemical, fight the cancerous cells.

If it weren't for this cellulitis outbreak i'd feel great -- still no appreciable side effects from the therapy.

Prayers for all taking ipilimumab for melanoma -- may it do its job on all who are taking it!

Our son-in-law Billy is making a near-miraculous recovery from his immune-system crash in January...his doctor told him, "You were about as close to death as anyone can come."

He's doing so well, in fact, that he's scheduled to come home Friday -- yay! But he is still struggling to maintain a healthy white blood cell count, and has a couple of persistent infections that need to clear up; so our son Brian has requested more prayers and positive thoughts.

And please include Brian in your prayers too. Now that we're here in Florida with the kids, we see every day how dependent Billy is on Brian and how much responsibility Brian has on his shoulders -- all while trying to get back to his job on a part-time basis AND close on the kids' new house. (In the meantime we've been staying in their rental home...and believe me, they really need to get out of here.) These two have been through so much in the last couple of months...we are so proud of them for being the fine, brave men they are, but at the same time we worry, and pray that they can enjoy a new start in a new, healthy, accessible home.

Some of you might remember the Oscar Grant case from several years ago. An African-American man was "accidentally" killed by a transit cop in a BART subway station in Oakland, California. Riots ensued. The cops shot another African-American man over the weekend...who turns out to be Oscar's cousin. Fortunately, he's still alive.

But this could get very nasty. If protesters get violent again...and if Occupy Oakland (sometimes violent) gets in on the act...and if the Oakland cops act unwisely (as they have in the past),...

Thank you. Elder teen vaccinated , but the doctor postponed doing younger teen, given her medical history. (The school notes said, wrongly, that we had refused earlier vaccination. The doctor has confirmed that her notes show that the previous refusal was by our doctor. So we've been re-classified from wacko anti-vacc parents, to sensible parents who followed medical advice!

I would like younger teen to be vaccinated - prayers, please, that this happens successfully at some point?

There is a bump in the road for me. The foot infection appears to be clearing up nicely, praise God

However when i went in for my 2nd infusion, my liver enzyme levels had shot up and i couldn't get the infusion. 2 days later, yesterday, another test, they are still up. A 3rd blood test will be monday.

The big question -- are they up due to the antibiotibs i was taking or because of the ipilimumab. If the latter, that means i'll have to stop taking the only FDA approved treatment for melanoma -- and one with rather good results, not too mention no serious discomfort, and go to a clinical trial, which could be a trial in more ways than one. So i of course pray that the liver enzyme spike was not due to the ipilimumab. [Votive]

Lately when Lent rolls around, i've said the main things i need to work on is my lack of patience and nothing much comes of it. Maybe this will help me to have a more calm spirit of the patience i need for this, and for life in general. If i can become more patient that will be a good thing. [Votive]

#1 son fell down concrete stairs at work 14 months ago. since becoming more mobile after two ankle reconstruction, he's been in pain from herniated disc which insurance company accepts as part of the whole thing. So bad yesterday, doctor had him admitted to hospital. Home now, heavily dosed up on opiates which he hates. Surgery will probably be this week. Admittance to hospital seems to have forced insurance company to get moving on arrangements.

Sorry for such a long post but so much stuff has been going on the past week that when i have not actually been dealing with it i didn't feel like spending more time writing about it.

A medical conundrum seems to have been reached.

I may not be able to continue to be able to continue taking the only FDA-approved treatment that has shown some good results in stifling melanoma, i.e., ipilimumab (Yervoy). -- and one on which i have pinned alot of my hopes.

A week ago, Tuesday, I was literally sitting in the infusion centre waiting for my 2nd of 4 infusions, when the oncology nurse rushed in to say stop, i couldn't have it today because the blood tests showed a big spike in my liver enzyme levels. (I have had hepatitis C for probably 2 decades or so -- cause unknown, and never any symptoms.)

The weekend leading up to that Tuesday i had back and forth to the hospital twice for a flare-up of a cellulitis infection on my right foot for which i'd been given oral antibiotics saturday and when it continued to spread despite it had to stay overnight Monday for IVs of a different antibiotic. I saw the apparently very busy dermatologist himself only very briefly both times. The cellulitis receded in the morning and i cheerfully went to the cancer center that afternoon for my 2nd infusion, which was abruptly stopped.

After more blood tests Thursday, and more scheduled today (all these hospital trips are causing me transport money! -- public transit is tedious and slow) I am scheduled for a liver biopsy. The thought of the pain scares me. Bottom line -- they don't know if the liver enzyme spike is caused by the antibiotics or the treatment for melanoma. (I sort of fearfully suspect the latter but pray to God i'm wrong.)

To complicate matters further, i had a dermatologist appointment 2 days after the aborted 2nd infusion, previously scheduled for another, much less serious, skin issue. In light of the liver issue, the 2nd (even more rushed-seeming) dermatologist told me to stop taking the antibiotics. He also said he "didn't see" any cellulitis, only dermatitis, much less serious as it doesn't sink below skin lever and threaten the blood. The infected area had developed a darkness over the foot, which i assume was the dermatitis. He prescribed a steroid cream and 3+ times day foot soakings with expensive non-prescription (and therefore not covered by insurance) antiseptic soap. The dermatitis disappeared revealing the cellulitis still there tho not as bad as the worst on the previous weekend. I'm still doing the surface skin treatment, the cellulitis lingers, though at a level reduced from the 1st weekend, and the co-pays pile up from all these hospital visits. And my monthly rent is due. And i'm using up lots of leave time at work.

I wish the apparently rushed-to-the-point-of-distraction dermatologists could agree on my potentially dangerous cellulitis. [Votive]
I am afraid of the pain at tomorrow's liver biopsy. [Votive]
And most of all, i fear that i won't be able to continue the treatment for melanoma upon which i put so much hope (and which wonderfully caused me just about no discomfort). [Votive] [Votive] [Votive]
It would come down to hunting for experimental clinical trials (there was one out there i was aware of in January although new developments can occur at anytime, wih God knows what side effects [Votive]

[Axe murder] But in the realm of thanksgiving and praise, the weather was gorgeous yesterday, church was wonderful yesterday, and afterward i had a delightful and delicious breakfast with friends from church and that evening another household delightful gathering with the same friends and others. And on the home front my cousin has been helpful and supportive and whatever seems to have been troubling my feline companion seems to have gone, and she is affectionate as ever and purring more.

Please pray for beloved husband. His father died recently and he is finding all the paperwork (including having to sell the house he was born in) very emotionally draining. Added to that, his work is cutting him no slack at all (the day after the funeral the chief executive bawled him out for something that had happened when he was on compassionate leave.) As if that wasn't enough we are trying to find an adult placement for our autistic son.
He is going to the doctor tomorrow to see if he can have some time off for stress. Life is quite dark for him at the moment.

For comfort and strength for TessaB's husband, for humanity and decency to somehow seep into his boss' heart, for a good placement for their son, and may her husband's father rejoice in God's eternal kingdom of blessed peace.

[Yipee] A ray of hope for me today! I had more blood tests today, and the elevated liver enzyme levels, while still high have come down significantly from last week. This increases the chances that the culprit was an antibiotic for my foot infection, rather than the treatment for the melanoma. Still not sure, and still have to have the liver biopsy tomorrow (shiver) to get a clearer picture. But my spirits are lifted tonight. (Any shipmates who'd care to share what they know/have experienced of liver biopsies?)

Malik3000; I've had a liver biopsy, and apparently I was a hard one. Literally. My flank was so tough the doctor practically had to charge at me in order to get the needle in. And you know what? I hardly felt it. Really, it was nothing. It wasn't *pleasant*, but it really was not a big deal.

The only other problem I had, now that I think about it, was that I couldn't get up to pee for about 2 hours while I was lying there hooked up to things and I had to use the bed pan constantly because I had thoughtlessly drunk about 2 litres of water in the car on the way over. Somewhat embarrassing, and I think the nurse was truly impressed by my output.

While it wasn't particularly painful, it was long and boring. Bring a book. And DO NOT drink much for 2 or 3 hours before your appointment time. I hope and pray you will have as easy a time (or easier, if you bring that book and don't drink too much.)

Prayers for all who are sick, anxious or in need tonight.

Please continue to pray for our son-in-law and son Brian. After two good days at home Brian had to drive Billy to the ER this morning -- shortness of breath and racing heartbeat. At first we feared pneumonia or even a heart attack, but the doctors' tentative diagnosis is simply an excess of fluid that started filling Billy's lungs. He's been put in an induced coma again because of his anxiety, which was hindering the staff from treating him, and given dialysis and other treatments to help remove the excess fluid. While we've relaxed a tiny bit, we're still in that "not knowing" place, and of course were also disappointed that he had this setback.

75% of NSW is either underwater or on flood watch. PArts of norther Victoria are also threatened. Emergency service are stretched and are trying to evacuate peole before the worst of the floods.

Warragamba Dam in Sydney's west is about to teach 100% capacity and flood gates have been tested. They will open automatically but haven't been opened for 14 years. Warragamba has been as low as 32% full in recent years.

This is a result of an almost stationary trough system bring rain from the centre of Australia. Broken Hill in far west had six months rain in a day.

There's been some warning of this coming, so evacuations have been planned, but this is a huge effort by all emergency services.

A couple of months since I last posted about M the lad who collapsed after coming back from holiday and has quite bad brain damage. Some of this has been actually because things got quite tough around Christmas time but all I had was word of mouth but other things were because he is now in rehab and therefore perhaps things are less tense.

I have just had another email from his from his foster dad. M is communicating by spelling out words, he can do simple sums and has been asking about how he came to hospital and remember what he had been told. Physically he is able to sip water and juice, but has been having difficulties with fluid on his lungs.

So he and his foster family still need a lot of prayer and support as they find out what the future holds.

Please pray for me. I am really sick and about to go off to the local E.R. I have had severe stomach problems for three days and no amount of over-the-counter remedies are working. I have all the symptoms of Gastroparesis, a complication of having Type 2 diabetes, amongst other things. I feel pretty awful although, thankfully, the throwing up stage seems to be over.

It's exam time here starting Monday and sitting next to a local lad [12 or 13 years old] on the bus this afternoon he told me he is frightened by the thought of the exams and asked me to pray for him so I thought I'd go one better and ask you to pray as well for Fayaz and all the kids facing major exams in the next few weeks.

Thank you.

I'd appreciate continued prayers for my health. I'm seeing the doctor again tomorrow afternoon as it was requested I do so when my sick leave was extended. I still don't feel ready to go back to work as I can't handle the stress. I also want him to change my anti-depressants as they make me put on weight. [Frown]

I've got a meeting with my boss and head of HR on the 13th to discuss my sickness record. I think I'll be told they can no longer employ me given the number of days I have been off sick. As I soon be on half pay my money situation is scary, and adding to the stress and depression.

Good news in that I'll be having pain relief injections on 10th March [Smile] Please pray that all goes well with the treatment and that I will be able to use public transport to and from hospital rather than expensive taxis.

I am an extremely unforgiving person, it seems. I had a dream last night about someone who was abusive to me 20 years ago, and not only do I still feel rage and hate towards him and everyone like him before or since, it gets worse every time I have to suffer at the hands of such a person. I also feel filled with rage by every frustrating situation in which I don't have the standing to ask for what I need, to the point that I can barely contain it and I'm afraid of what I might say or do next.
But hey, you've gotta laugh, haven't you?

She has a meeting soon with the childrens workers with an interpreter. I pray that the days before this meeting could allow God's grace to move in all the areas in this deeply complicated situation.

yet another prayer request from me as I am in a new church home I have been going to almost a year but I have known you all longer....

My mom fell down last night walking in the dark out to her car. She didn't put her hands out in front of her. She fell flat on her face on the concrete and got whiplash/bruises/bloody. She's okay but her head hurts.

I nagged her and nagged her...she did go to the doctor today and last night, her parnter (a doctor like my mom) came over to look at her and said she didn't need to go to the ER.

I felt bad I didn't walk my mom to the car in the dark of the parking lot like I should have.

It's hard when your parents get older and you realize that fact.

Anyway, I am glad she is okay but please pray for her healing and also wisdom on dealing with those golden years.

Continued prayers, please, for our son-in-law Billy and son Brian. Billy's condition is improving, and we think he'll be out of the hospital by the end of the week. But a couple of his symptoms are worrying at least to the moms, who've done some reading up on the subject; and he's also very anxious about, in his words, "screwing something up," both in terms of following his treatment regimen and we suspect in doing anything that would delay or prevent the kids' move into their new home. (Yes; this all happened just as they were having a new home built; something they'd been saving for for years, and a great improvement over their current rental digs.) Brian has so much responsibility on his shoulders that we frankly don't know how he can juggle it all and remain sane -- taking care of Billy; supervising this building project; attending to his work responsibilities. He's assured us that the house is a "go" even on a single income, but -- what a burden to suddenly fall on a household that had been happily moving forward on two.

[Votive] Praying for everyone here. Let each know that God is near, even when it seems so much otherwise.

[Votive] Please dear God, stop the slaughter in Homs, Syria

[Votive] And a renewed psychological bump in the road for me. The supervisory management, at my place of employment, whatever their individual inner motivations may be, has become overtly worse, to the point where i feel the stress is unhealthy to me. I need to maintain a calm positive attitude to help my body fight the melanoma inside me.

After an particularly unpleasant meeting yesterday morning it is clear that the management knows how to be as vindictively petty as it likes to show that they have the power and to impress on us employees that goal #1 of the place is not to provide services to the public, but rather to make sure that subordinate employees know that duty #1 is to maintain a properly groveling attitude to management above them, at all times, and we are to accept that we have no rights that management need consider. I've seen what they can do to make life a bureaucratic hell to fellow employees, and now i am apparently a full-fledged target.

This is the last thing i need right now. God, please deliver me. And God, let me rise above cluttering my mind with silly revenge fantasies and have the mind that Christ had in the face of much worse persecution. Somehow touch their hearts and if possible move them to other places in the library system where they can't mess with people like this. And please dear God, if it be your will, i beg you to get me out of this place ASAP with my health, finances and sanity intact. Please, please God. [Votive]

My health has been deteriorating since Jan, and added to all my mental health problems (I'm now on the severe and enduring list), I'm in pain most of the time. It's not bad-bad pain, just sore enough that i use perscription/over the counter painkillers most days. I've got an assessment at the Chronic Fatigue Clinic on the 29th March, which should help, but I'll have to get someone to take me there. Luckily I've enough time to bully someone with a car into taking me, but it will be one more stress.

And I'm getting fired on Thursday for my sickness record. Technically I will have failed my probationary period for the second time, but it's still the same outcome. I'm waiting to hear about disability living allowance, but as my diagnosis' are all screwy I will probably have to appeal as everything is changing week in. At the moment my official diagnosis changed to 'mild depression', but was severe enough that I've passed to the severe and enduring team for intensive help.

I'm just hoping that I've paid enough National Insurance contributions to get Employment and Support Allowance, but even that will be very stressy to get. Please pray. [Help]

Thank you for your prayers.. I am happy to let you know that small steps have been taken toward my daughter being allowed more time with the children.. the PTB have granted her W/E access.

She is travelling home to UK for a short break with the baby which I hope will go a long way to helping her feel better, and mean that the whole family can finally get to see baby Grace.

Due to so much stress and horrible stuff going on where I am living, I have asked my parents to put her up. Happily they agreed, and my attempts at manipulating a way out of a tricky situation seem to have had a heavenly hand in being sorted.

Two out of three aint bad... and I am really really thankfull...but... today Laura has taken a dramatic turn for the worse and is as poorly mentally as I have ever seen her outside of being sectioned and in hospital... whereas I saw her yesterday and she appeared so well.
I have spent the day with her, arriving just as she was about to baptise herself in the bath with scriptural passages floating in the water... I am drained and exhausted, she was seen by Social Worker and GP, now just watching and waiting to see how things settle overnight and prepared to call 999 if necessary.
(She is under a Community Treatment Recall Order)
It really is that bad, everyone is hoping that the prn meds and antibiotics will kick in and she will be able to remain out of hospital, but no one is going to put money on it.
Been here so many times [brick wall] [brick wall] [brick wall]

I was in a nasty car crash today, probably totaled both cars. (I ran a stopsign--wasn't paying attention.)

Thank God for airbags or I'd probably be in a hospital room dying. All prayers appreciated.

My employment has been terminated (I've got 4 weeks notice) due to my health problems, especially as i could not give a date I would be back at work or guarantees that things would improve when I did return. this is in spite of me not having an initial assessment with mental health services.

They are not taking into account my feelings about how I've been treated by work "colleagues" as they see it as a separate issue, although it does, and has, impacted on my depression. [Mad]

Laura is likely to be recalled to hospital tomorrow.
There is to be an assessment tomorrow lunchtime which is almost a forgone formality. I spent the afternoon with her and she is still as nutty as squirrel poo, but very distressed, confused, and exhausted.... (snap ditto)

Today also was difficult, as the police came to tell me that a sensitive family matter, is not going to go to court. Reason being that other family members cannot or will not substantiate allegations. My brother is also deeply depressed about this and I quote him "Another ^&*$ gets off, whilst I have to pay a parking fine etc with no right to appeal. I hate this "£$%!"£ country."

After having had my liver enzyme levels go down last week, i went in today to resume my treatment with the 2nd of 4 infusions. But (sigh) unfortunately the enzyme levels had risen again. So i couldn't have it today after all. But the nurse told me "we haven't given up on this treatment" and I am scheduled to go back a week from today, and if the
levels are back down hopefully I can resume the treatment then. So that's my prayer of the moment, please God. [Votive] (Well, it's Lent and i need to work on my patience anyway)

Son's back operation has finally been firmly scheduled for this Friday. Not a moment too soon either. very bad pain and four heavy duty pain killers at maximum doses.

He has been told that pain may still be bad for some time till brain adjusts to new physical circumstances, somewhat like the pain an amputee feels although the limb has gone.

He appreciates prayer for all to go well and for a smooth recovery.

So, I've been holding back on looking for jobs because the last time I did that I got offered them, and it was a death-defying race against time for my current workplace to come up with the funding. That was nice for the ego, but I'm envisioning myself not getting funded for current boss's project, my redeployment being carelessly brushed aside, and then being cast into outer darkness with no prospects for months as my enemies cackle and exult over my downfall.

Well, I don't want that to happen, so... And I especially don't even have time to look for work right now, and the dragging-on tasks are blocking me good and proper. So...

Well. I'm either fired, or things have taken a turn for the much better. God only knows. I will only know if I make it through to, say, mid-April. (they do firings totally unannounced round here)

I took the minor but troubling issue to my boss's boss, seeking advice. He firmly directed me to have a face to face chat with my boss, and said he would back me up if I get dragged into HR* as a result. Although the face-to-face chat (as I expected) got quickly dragged off into issues that have been festering for two years, and I a great deal of truth got spoken to stunning effect.

While he was still incapable of coherent speech, I settled the minor matter and got out. Now the question is, Is the man enough of a Christian to repent--or not? If not, then I've just flushed myself down the toilet (not that I wasn't there already). If so, who knows what may happen?

(And yes, I know that humanly speaking this was a damfool thing to do. My only plea is that I prayed long and hard before going in, and I think the Holy Spirit had a hand in it.)

I'm off anti-cancer medication because the side effects were too bad to continue, and am now seeing a heart specialist for what seems to be atrial fibrillation (should be treatable if so). So it's very much in the hands of God whether we've done enough to stop the cancer returning. Checkup next week, so we'll see what happens then. Thankful for prayers and good friends and family and excellent specialists thus far.

Plumbers came and wrapped all available surfaces in cling film (don't ask) and in the process gummed up the front door welcome mats, creating a trip hazard for the Telemum who banged her back against the edge of the door. She is now in pain with limited mobility, and anticipates everyone saying that she's old and therefore she's supposed to fall down. Please let her be healed before the weekend is out.

Thanks for prayers - prescription correcting could easily have stretched out into the whole day, but was over within an hour. Thank the Lord that boss is totally flexible about these things. Had a very productive day after that.

Thank You also that, in stupendous run of good luck today, I found a number of supplies that I had been looking for, super cheap and in some cases nearly free. My mind is boggling at a very specific, hard-to-find, expensive item I was desperate to get last winter, and which I found in a thrift shop today - but it will only be useful if I'm still at my current workplace next winter... So, please let this be a sign! [1]

For T.


[1] A sign that it's Meant To Be that I continue at my current workplace, I mean. Not a sign that I've gone down a rabbit hole of magical thinking and barmy semiotic arousal.

Thank you very much to those of you who prayed for my friend L, who was to have had the angiogram on Thursday. However after 6 hours of waiting (and fasting as you can't eat or drink anything beforehand) they told her they didn't have the time to see her that day because of some emergency admissions, and sent her home. It may now be after Easter. She remained calm throughout and was very grateful for your support.

St Patrick's Day blessings to you all.

For healing for the sister and the daughter of Nicolemrw's Mickey B. For upholding for Mickey.

Aargh for Ariel's friend L. Please uphold her, and when she does have the angiogram, let it show that she's healed.

The Telemum is in quite a bit of pain from her fall. Please pray that she will be better by Tuesday, because if she's still in this amount of pain by then she'll have to see the GP.

For G., for healing.

Ah well, no luck. Mr. Lamb has crashed and burned on this exam also (no surprise, when he came home and discussed the vocabulary with me). The good thing is, if he improves on the next one to the same extent he did from the last, he'll fail by only five points! (Yes, that was sarcasm)

[Votive] For all, for health and for all the complicated, messy and stressful life situations to be sorted out as soon as possible.

I've got quite a few friends going through stuff at the moment.

Please pray for L's mum who had a ruptured brain aneurysm. Thankfully she is still with us and after surgery is now able to talk and has movement in her body. So far she has not been well enough to get out of bed and the doctors aren't sure if her ability to walk has been affected. Please also pray for L. who is going to drop down to part time hours at work to help care for her Mum once she goes home, and for L's father, sister and husband too.

Please also pray for my young married friends K and B. B had a new job that he really enjoyed, but shortly after he started working there management changed and he was required to sit a written exam (though the job mainly involves answering phone calls and customer service which his supervisors and his supervisors were happy with how he was going). He failed, narrowly, three times so now has lost the job. K is a casual relief/supply teacher so they are now struggling financially. Please pray for job opportunities.

Please also pray for another young couple E. and W. who have been trying to get pregnant. They had fertility tests as E. has had cysts on her ovaries in the past. Her tests showed she has cysts on both ovaries, which could make getting pregnant harder but not impossible. However on top of this W's tests showed that he is quite likely infertile. He is having further tests but it doesn't look good.

Finally please pray for A. who has a conflict of interest between her work and her faith. It involves being involved in a Freemason event though she is Christian and believes Freemasonry to be satanic. However as part of her employment she cannot get out of working at the event. Her boyfriend is not a Christian and thinks she is totally overreacting. Tonight when she asked a friend and I to pray for her he started making jokes about things falling off walls and seeing poltergeists. She loves her boyfriend but is finding the differences in their beliefs difficult especially at times like this when she needs him to be supportive.

Telemum has not felt any better today. If she doesn't improve by Tuesday she will need a GP appointment, which will take weeks and weeks to get, and which she will refuse to try to make because she can't cope with making appointments, knows it will take weeks and weeks, and knows the medical profession can't and won't be of any help to her. I did manage to get her to let me call NHS Direct yesterday, and they put her on an excellent pain management regime with detailed advice. But it took three hours of negotiation to get her to let me call them; she knew it was a waste of time because they would only send her to A&E, which would be unstaffed because it was a Saturday and studies show that there's no benefit to going into hospital on a Saturday. Meanwhile, she was yowling in pain and finding it difficult to speak or take a deep breath. I appreciate that things always have to be handled sensitively but I had broken down in tears after three hours of trying to figure out what to do for her and how to help her without being allowed to seek medical advice. I can't cope with always having to be driven to the breaking point before I'm allowed to take a simple and necessary action. I am not looking forward to several weeks more of this, I just want it to be over. And oh, yeah, I guess she does too since she's the one actually feeling the pain here. [brick wall]

He landed front side down flat on the road, bounced a bit and then an onlooker picked him up, parents got off motorbike and they all bundled into a rickshaw and off to hospital. I will never know the outcome but pray it is a good one.

Thank you for your prayers on behalf of our son-in-law. He's been home for two weeks now and seems to be getting stronger each day, although he still uses a walker and tires easily. He is pushing himself, despite this, because he wants to go back to work, and ASAP...because they're moving, a process that had come to a halt when he was in the hospital. The house closing (fingers crossed) comes next week, and we want to get everything in the new home by that following week.

Now if you could pray for DP and me...we've now been here over a month, because of Billy's setback; our other kids are coming to visit in a week-and-a-half (DP and I are paying their way because they can't afford such a trip right now and frankly we're not sure of Billy's long-term prognosis -- we wanted them to be here on an up-note, and they in turn want to help with moving and unpacking.) We are spent, every single day, just running errands for the boys. Billy is also being very demanding to the point of rudeness, which is so unlike him -- we suspect that his meds, maybe combined with his anxiety and his psychological processing of his hospital experience and the stress of moving, are amping up his nerves and causing him to act in odd ways. Anyway, DP and I are finding ourselves feeling very resentful and unappreciated, then immediately feeling very guilty that we feel this way. And we're homesick; we just want to be HOME. We're excited about seeing the grandchild, but...we are more than ready to turn the household back to the kids and Billy's mom, get in the car and drive back to Michigan.

I have now officially lost my job. I'm not surprised by this, it was a foregone conclusion as I've been on sick leave during my probation period. I'm due to see a specialist in a few weeks, but that won't really help me in the short term, but hopefully will in the long term.

In the short term I'm mostly frustrated by little things, like cooking and buying food when the housemates aren't in. Or buying more yarn when I've run out, or even smaller things like bending down to feed the cats!

Please pray that something happens to change *something* for the better!

I really need some prayer.

Briefly, I have agreed to God-parent the 3 children of a single woman at my Church. She has in the past identified herself as lesbian, but is now back tracking on this, saying it was an attention seeking claim. The childrens father/s is/are doners. Or in the words of the eldest 'my Daddy is a Do-nut'!

She is sweet but odd, and very needy. She came to us when a patient at a local eating disorder unit, stayed in the area, and has been with us for 10 years. I have befriended and supported her through the years.

She is making a great job of bringing up these children but there are lots of issues and problems.

My other half is horrified that I have agreed. He has not met her, but has met her father, who he sees as decidedly dodgy. And my husband has a real gift of discernment!

However, I am determined to continue my suppoert, and believe that my taking on this role will make people at Church see her in a more positive way.

Please pray for us all- the young women, her children, my husband, her father, the Church.

So no more Tramadol, yes more serious pain and yelping. I just wish I could magic the pain all away for her.

Usual job-related impatience for me, SIGH. No, really, I know You'll sort it all out for the best, but I'm afraid of this turning into complacency and me screwing up. O me of little faith.

Requesting prayer for my Amazon parrot as he is sick and there is no avian vet nearby available as this is the weekend. By the time a parrot shows symptoms they are gravely ill. My other problem is due to health issues I have not been able to drive. I've had Dakota for 20 years and losing him is unthinkable.

So I tried to do the jobhunting thing today. As someone with years of experience in detailed document editing, may I just say that Word gets more cussed with every release. THREE HOURS TO INSERT ONE PARAGRAPH. And now I have to wait 24 hours to proof it in case I've introduced typos. I DO NOT HAVE TIME FOR THIS. I would rather put my effort into the job I'm doing now, not least because it's the first place any new hiring manager will look, and the sooner I get that on display the better. [1]

But anyway, I wish any or all of the three leads I already have at my current workplace would pan out. I'm pretty uncomfortable as I feel that almost anything I do next is wrong. Very clear guidance for tomorrow please.

For neighbours R. and J.

Some months ago I prayed for a missing cat named Tigger. It's been confirmed that Tigger has moved out, and not met with foul play as I feared.

My left elbow is killing me and sometimes the pain radiates down my arm. I am supposed to work about ten hours this weekend and do not want to miss out. I took two tablets that my orthopaedic doctor prescribed and got one from my wife. I may be better in an hour, God willing. All prayers are appreciated.

K. just called me to say her cat is very sick. She is taking him to the vet.

K. Is very attached to her cat and has literally pushed the bounds of veterinary science to care for him. If anything happens to him, I'm afraid K. might lose it. Please pray for them both.

Thanks, he went very quietly, and K. is well looked after for the time being. The cat's remains will go to a university pathology department tomorrow, and there is an arrangement that every time his case is cited, he must be mentioned by name. Together, he and K. are making a contribution will help many other cats.

I am in a lot of pain. My back has 'gone' - it happens occassionally. I am finding it hard to walk, rest, sleep, think....
I have spoken to my chiropractor, and will try to get to him tommorow. I am taking massive doses of pain killers.
I would appreciate prayer.

PS. I am also feeling hurt. It happened when I was out with a group of friends. Four of then are people I have supported when they were ill- transport to hospital appointments for chemo, visiting etc. (three of whom are Christians.)

It soiunds as though I expect payback, but the issue here is that my Non Christian husband is shocked that I have not recieved even a phone call from anyone, the Christians in particular. He is the one who pointed out to me the support and time I had given them when they were in need of it.

So, less than a month to go at my current job, I've got three room-temperature prospects for further employment congealing on the kitchen counter like stuff that didn't quite get eaten at yesterday's party and you don't know whether to throw them out, or if they'll still be OK at lunchtime, or what. I need to take control tomorrow but... how? What do I do? I hate this. [brick wall] I am going to need steely determination and explicit guidance for tomorrow please.

I am, as usual, broke, but that's the bad habit I'm trying to address this month. Just please don't let it get any worse.

I'm sorry, I have one more request. Tomorrow I'm participating in a Holy Week event called CrossWalk.

Please pray for our efforts and, I have to ask on a purely selfish level, that I'm able to last the 4 miles.

For Mamacita and for all trying to do something to counter violence. And for all the victims (direct and indirect) of violence -- in Chicago, in Oakland, in my beloved New Orleans, and around the world

For guidance and success for Telepath in all endeavours

For my cousin C., things not looking any better, still needing discernment to somehow to get on, at age 37, a productive track in life, he doesn't seem to be moving any closer to it, and it concerns me more and more -- tho God knows it's not because of laziness on C's part. And his laptop, which he needs, was stolen (not to be judgemental but could he exercise better discernment with some of the people he apparently trusts?) And since the computer has the computer equivalent of a Lo-Jack, let the computer be recovered

[Yipee] Halleluyah! my liver enzyme levels were perfectly fine!! Next week is infusion no. 3, may it zap that melanoma

That i can get my affairs better organised -- such as medical benefits, how to organise finances post-retirement from present job, straightening out of taxes. Thanks for the gift of friends helping me in this. And if anti-ADHD medication can help me climb out of this pit of confusion, may i get it (right now trying to get an appt with a shrink with a heavy schedule)

That i soon -- really soon -- can be driving a car

But at the same time that the public transport system situation may improve -- especially for all dependent on it, and for the bus drivers about to be laid off from our local transit system

In thanks to the Creator for having created other living, feeling beings along with us humans, and that humans may treat them as the precious wonderful gifts they are.

Many thanks for prayers.

Update: phone call today from senior manager; I am being offered the option of going on the next scheduled six-week training course to learn about a different area of the business. This area was my *preferred option* after the last reshuffle (which I didn't get at that time). Course starts the day my current medical certificate expires so, all in all, could hardly be a better outcome/timing.

Most of all, I feel justified and vindicated in having made this semi-formal (not *formal* as in official Grievance) complaint of bullying, that is to say, I have been believed. There may possibly be some *mediation* between me and erstwhile line manager but that's for sometime in the future.

Because of the fluid in M's lungs his normal physio and communication therapy were suspended and his drinking was back to 5 sips from a teaspoon 3 times a day for the two and a half weeks that it took to sort out the problem. But since then he has continued to make progress. He got used to breathing more normally with a speech valve on his trachy and the trachy has now been removed altogether; M is coping very well even though it is harder work for him. He has also been increasing the length of time he sits in his wheelchair, where he is learning to use a switch by moving his knee which may in time help him to communicate.

Please keep him and his foster family in your prayers.

I give thanks for a wonderful and uplifting Holy Week and Easter and some wonderful time with friends, including, but not limited to, my wonderful church family.

My worry about my cousin has increased. By the way he acts and looks I increasingly believe that he is on angel dust though he vehemently denies it. It's not just me, others have noted how he acts and looks. So sad for such a talented and basically good-hearted person. He went to New York this weekend, and as much as I love him like the brother and best friend he is, I don't want him back in my home unless he can do a turnaround. I don't know how this might be able to happen -- it's no where near happening at this time. I don't know what else i could do for him except, of course, pray. Will it take a miracle? If so, that's what I pray for.

Alas, Maundy Thursday evening while i was out, someone broke in and stole my newly refurbished and wonderfully-working laptop computer, and some electronic equipment and passport belonging to my cousin C. Prayers for those who feel they must do such a thing. (Even tho it could have been one of the people my cousin, in his poor judgement has hung out with, in this case very strong evidence actually points in an entirely different direction, i.e., to some people who used to visit my neighbor who recently moved out.) My my home's security be reasonably strengthened.

My 3rd of 4 melanenoma infusions is tomorrow (Tuesday) -- may it do the job!

Lat but not least, today is my last day at my library position. Tomorrow I will officially be a retiree. It feels strange. I don't feel like a retiree. May it just be a more fruitfully active phase in my life. And may my melanoma be sufficiently killed or kept away that this may be so. And may all my financial/medical benefits stuff function smoothly, including having a much-needed car.

so, it may be a bit of an odd request, but could you all include our moose in your prayers?

It's been a rough winter - deep snow AND cold. now, as things are slowly melting out the moose are starving and stressed. They're acting aggressive at times - very dangerous for us wee humans - but my bigger concern is that they've just started dropping. like, in the middle of the road, in driveways, yards, parking lots. the cute yearling who hung around my neighborhood all winter hasn't been seen in weeks and I fear the worst for him.

it's spring, the end is in sight, but for a lot of them it's too little too late. Plus, it's heart-breaking seeing these skinny and weak creatures who are usually so lovely and strong.

Please pray for:

Firstly, my Beloved Goddaughter's mother was badly bitten by their cat two days ago and is currently in hospital on IV anti-biotics to fight the infection.

Secondly, my Beloved Goddaughter is always anxious when her mother is unwell, and she really doesn't need this. Please pray for a sense of security for her, for confidence, health, happiness and some fun in her life.

Thirdly, this is totally out of character for the cat, so a prayer for her would not go amiss either.

Dad's funeral today. It's a completely unknown quantity, as far as my feelings about it go. My major concern at the moment is my son's behaviour. He has been particularly unpleasant the last few days. I know he doesn't want to come to the funeral but we have no option there so there's not much I can do about it. The service is a eucharist so it's going to be longer and more formal than groover is used to and I am currently going cold just thinking about it. [Frown]

Beloved Goddaughter's mother is about to go into theatre to have the infected cat bite drained under general anesthetic. Surely it's unusual for a bite from a pet cat to result in a two-day hospital stay?? I'm concerned there may be underlying health issues, but perhaps I'm being unduly pessimistic?

Praying for all, but re this, cat bites in particular can cause so many serious medical issues. A beloved college pastor was scratched by a cat and it turned into a week or so in the hospital and an infection that seriously endangered his life. He wasn't an old man either. So yes, cat attacks can be dangerous. Hopefully BGm's won't be comparable.

And for the cat's issues to be straightened out (you're right, it isn't normal for cats to bite people like that - at all - and yes animal bites can be that serious).

For groover to get through the funeral without it getting even worse than it already is. For all the birdies. Lord comfort and uphold them.

For Japes's G, for healing.

For all affected by the earthquake/tsunami in Aceh.

Churchy - I'm so sorry. For healing for your Dad, even if a miracle is needed to achieve that.

For jobs, money and energy in the Malin household. For a nursery place for Malinette.

For Jodi to know how to help; for this person to be made whole and free of pain.

Have made great progress in the last few days/month, but am still focussed on the negative. I'd say shame on me, but that's the exact mindset I'm trying to get out of.

Posted by Ariel (# 58) on :
 
Three years ago a friend of mine had collapsed with a sudden stroke and was paralyzed, unable to speak or walk for some time, though speech and mobility returned after a while and she's normal now. The doctors had had to monitor her condition and she had a succession of tests and treatments and wondered how long she'd got.

I posted a request here for prayer for her recently as she was going for an angiogram. The hospital postponed it, but I wanted to let you know that your prayers weren’t in vain. To the doctors’ surprise, when they were finally able to examine her a few days ago, they found that the trouble-spot in her brain had diminished to virtually nothing at all and she was told that it is very unlikely ever to happen again. This was three years to the day when it happened.

She’s asked me to say thank you so very much for your prayers. She has been so grateful for you remembering her. It feels as if the shadow of death has been lifted from her, and she has her life ahead of her now – and is very grateful for it.

As am I: a grateful thank you from me too.

update here (sorry) - mother in law had been pulled from the house a few days earlier. Jason is in the mental hospital- had some small burns but otherwise it's a mental meltdown issue. I can't find out if his parrots or his large, lovely great dane survived. thank you for your prayers. not a perfect outcome, but we were all so afraid he'd show up with a gun at a public place, so it's a damn good outcome, considering.

[Votive] for piglet and her mother, hoping her mother passes peacefully

Asking again for prayers for my friend Jan just diagnosed with breast cancer, who will have a radical mastectomy in the next couple of weeks. This weekend she has to sit down and tell her teenage son she has cancer and is dreading this. I feel horribly inadequate as a friend, my own fear and ignorance gets in the way. I hope she can get skilled counselling soon.

[Votive] for those who are grieving loved ones, for the injured and ill and those dealing with stress, depression or mental health issues.

Good news update on my friend L's Mum who had the stroke. She is out of hospital and in rehab close to home. She is doing well, though is having some trouble with short term memory and I think also with mobility.

Please continue to pray for L and her husband A. A close friend of theirs, M, has had her children taken into foster care. In the past L and A have looked after the kids at times, and were asked whether they would foster them, but have had to say no as it would be too much on top of helping to care for L's Mum.

Please pray for M and the kids too and that M can get things sorted out in her life so that she can regain custody. Pray that she is able and willing to listen to and follow the advice and requirements from DHS so she can get her kids back and be the mother they need. Pray for her depression and that she makes good choices about who she is hanging out with and letting near her children.

Please also pray for my housemate H. She has injured her toe and is currently unable to work as the Dr has told her not to wear closed shoes, and they are required for her job at a nursing home. She has had a bad run with illness this year and her workplace is giving her a hard time about sick leave, despite the fact that she has doctor certificates for all absences. They are threatening to sack her which is not legal.

H. has also been found to be pre-diabetic, which is really worrying her as her father lost limbs, and then died from complications due to type 2 diabetes. She had a brain tumor when she was a teenager (some which could not be removed) and the medications she takes due to that cause weight gain so it is very difficult for her to lose the weight needed to prevent diabetes.

So, the gig I got - rehearsals are a long way from home, but will be super easy to get to from my current workplace, except they're in July and August, and my latest contract renewal ends in June... And I'd have to cut a few afternoons short, which will be fine in my current post, not sure if it would be accepted if I were in a different post... And travel is paid within London, and since I commute to my current post anyway it won't cost me extra to travel to and from rehearsals, at least, not if I'm working in London at the time, but if I'm not I'm going to get dug into a debt hole very quickly... An obvious solution presents itself, here, Lord, are You thinking what I'm thinking? Hint hint.

MRI went smooth and they were awesome about the money part. I have forms to fill out to see if the hospital will essentially grant me the amount/forgive the bill. my last MRI was $7,000, so this would be a VERY GOOD THING.

praying though the thread. hang in there, Lambie. I know the feeling. hughughug.

for James brother-in-law, and for his sister and James himself

for Grammatica and all feeling beaten down by employment situations

that work on cancer therapies will yield more breakthroughs, especially for those conditions currently with poor prognoses, and that all who can benefit from them will have access to them regardless of financial situation

for Comet and for Ed

for my cousin C in New York now. Not sure how he is doing -- hard to tell from our recent phone conversations. Guidance, direction and fulfillment for him.

thanksgiving that i feel wonderfully healthy and happy to be freed of the salt mine (i.e. my old job) and that i have no bad effects from my anti-melanoma therapy. One more infusion to go, next Monday -- praying that upcoming tests will show that the therapy has worked. Prayers that i have the discernment needed to make the best financial and other decisions regarding my post-salt mine status.

American pastors have taken a Vietnamese snake to their bosoms, who is running around the community telling lies about them, himself, us, basically everything in range. They naturally hear nothing of this (not speaking the language) and refuse to believe us, since we're obviously jealous [Roll Eyes] Why are people such idiots? Said snake is making a strong effort to destroy the church and may well succeed. Pray that God would protect his people--and that the eyes of the Americans would finally be opened.

Update on my friend in a coma--she still shows no sign of consciousness, but her eyes have opened intermittently and she is breathing on her own without the respirator for 16 hours straight. These things bode well. Thank you for your prayers.

But her family still wait for consciousness and to find out if there is brain damage.

Stress at church has dropped somewhat, and Mr. Lamb is able to smile again.

(He does not cope well with funerals, feels all time off should be scheduled WELL in advance. Like, months. I got disciplined after the last funeral. If Grandma dies, I'm going anyway.)

Just been praying through the thread for everyone by name. My prayers for each Shipmate, each need and each person they care about.

I've not been able to communicate much with the Ship in the last few weeks as things have been very eventful in the last couple of weeks what with career change and medical business -- plus -- I had 2 burglaries in the last month, the 2nd of which involved smashing thru the wall of the other apartment of the duplex to my side to get the stuff they didn't get the first time! (almost certainly the same people both times and i have an idea who they were). It's material stuff that can be replaced -- flat screen TV and 3 computers and a playstation. As a consequence for the moment the computer i am using now is spectacularly crappy which is another big reason i've been mostly out of communication.

However praise God, certain very good security improvements have been made to both sides of the duplex to the extent that i now feel comfortable staying here. I love my little place, i've lived here almost 10 years and feel blessed that the situation has been dealt with so well that i now feel i don't have to move. I am blessed in having a exceptionally nice landlord (everyone can't say that i know!) I pray for the sad individuals who perpertrated this profoundly disrespectful violation, but also that they will not be able to prey upon others.

I just heard from my cousin C in NY. I pray he's alright -- at least he sounds no worse.

I give the utmost thanks that i have completed all 4 infusions of my anti-melanoma therapy and feel wonderfully healthy. Now my prayer on that score is that tests in the next few weeks will show that the therapy has had the intended result.

I give thanks that i am retired from the job i've wanted to leave for some time and that -- with the help of friends -- have made great progress in doing the complicated (to me anyway) financial things that are necessary in the wake of leaving said job. However many years i have on this planet my life is good. I give thanks for wonderful friends including my wonderful parish family. So much more important than material things!

I just got a phone message in the last 30 minutes from my cousin C who is in New York, saying that he has been stabbed in the back and his lung punctured and is on the way to the hospital. That is literally all i know. If he had not yet arrived t the hospital i'm not sure how he knows whether or not his lung was punctured.

I hope that the fact that he sounded normal on the phone and that he quickly followed it up with a text message means that it is not as serious as it sound. I'm praying and waiting for more news. God, please deliver him from whatever abyss he is in.

Dear Shipmates, thank you so much for holding me in prayer.

The council decision did go our way. Deo gratias!

One of the opponents Most Certainly Went There, calling me out both in writing (to the council and the local fishwrap) and in her remarks by name. But she was very obviously a kook of the first water. It was mostly funny. And I feel like I've undergone a local rite of passage - you ain't nobody in this town till some kook rants about you in the Planet/at a Council meeting.

My anti-anxiety meds got a workout, but I'm relieved.

For me to have a really successful project meeting tomorrow. I need to spend my time really well. Guide my feet while I run this race!

There is something I have been really sad about for a long time. I have worked through it and now I'm... Sitting here with just me and my entirely pointless sadness. All comfort is cold, all prospects remote. Or not, but my faith is weak and is balking at the prospect of shifting yet ANOTHER mountain.

[Votive] my cousin, unofficial nephew and non genetic brother C was just released from the hospital. His lung did collapse from the stabbing and he was in the hospital with a tube in his chest for 3-4 days. He has been released (they rush folks out of hospital care too fast i think). May he get the rest and recuperation he needs. His girlfriend left town and he doesn't have a steady place to stay. He sounds strong vocally over the phone. He still is in a state of denial about the counter-productive path he is going down. I don't have an alternative path to suggest for him because what works for one person doesn't for another. But something needs to change for him/within him. Please God!

[Votive] prayers for my t-cells for them to do the job against the melanoma that they were given permission to do by the us$120,000 worth of therapy pumped into me and that i stay feeling healthy.

Thank you for your prayers. Seeing my name on here, and taken up by others, has been deeply moving and reassuring, again. I'm sure this rings true for others here as well.

But answering always.

Came home from a stdent reunion on the weekend to find that my stepmother Betty had had a heart atack. She's been transferred from our local hospital to the Gwent (Birdie can tell you that parking there is awful) and her son was told that she has narrowing of the arteries and will need a "procedure" else she could have a fatal heart attack within 6 weeks. I don't really want to see Bet being ill, but I'm also selfish enough not to want the stress of visiting, although I can only really go on the weekend.

I would love some healing prayers please - had op on Monday which went well but reacted to procedure/pain relief/anaesthetics...very brave at the time and had amazing care but it's left me feeling very sad now I'm at home and can't sleep (!) and I don't know why! [Frown]

[Votive] [Votive] [Votive] For all of God's children.

Continued prayers please for L's job search. It's more desperate than I realized, she's in danger of becoming homeless.

I second this notion.

I'll be off shortly to organize and run our monthly free meal. In the light of the actions against me at the council meeting, I'd appreciate spare prayers for smooth and safe operation. (I was talking with someone about feeling "meh" about the various volunteer work I was doing at the church ... and realized that a lot of it was probably due to, you know, feeling not entirely safe.)

Love you all!

hanks or all prayers for Betty, my stepmother. We went to see her today and she looks and sounds great. She's due to have an angioplasty towards the beginning of next week, so shouldn't be in hospital too long. [Smile]

Will be thinking of you today.

For Lamb Chopped.

For Grammatica's L. And her extended family, especially her two grandnieces/nephews.

For Jenny Ann, for (retroactively?) a great journey and great sleep.

For Lucia & son.

For Welease Woderwick.

For cattybro and cattydad.

For St Gwladys' stepmother Betty, for healing.

For healing and strength for Malik's L and extended family.

(I like the way you pray, Mary LA, yes please, more inspiring gigs for me! And for the Telemum)

For healing for Mary LA's friend Jan.

For healing of the small children with Aids at Themba Care Hospice.

For harmony hope to feel better and get good sleep (sometimes you get very sad a few days after anaesthetic so probably that will just go away on its own)

For Nicolemrw's L to have her employment and housing needs met immediately.

Crumbs, Amazing Grace, if you don't feel safe maybe you could get your point across by withdrawing your volunteering! You are helping them and they owe you a safe environment! Either way, I pray for Amazing Grace's safety.

Son having seemed fine this morning has now developed a fever and sickness. I spoke to my paediatrician friend, we think it might be a coincidence that it's the day after his bang on the head and he has just gone down with a virus. He has no noticable neurological symptoms. But I can't help feeling very anxious about it all.

Please pray for him and for us to have wisdom. Thank you.

All quiet on the western front. The main excitement was another member coming in the church and opening up one of the (alarmed) office. Fortunately we managed to get the alarm company to call off the police visit in time (and stop the damn alarm).

Flyers with the "Call this number in an emergency from your cell" are now prominently displayed. Obviously I need to let people know the building manager's new cell.

[Votive] healing prayers for harmony hope recovering from an operation at home, that she might be pain-free and able to sleep

[Votive] for Nicolemrw's friend L, that she might find a job urgently before she becomes homeless

[Votive] for all those faced with eviction and homelessness, those living on the streets, those with nowhere to go

[Votive] for Amazing Grace's safety and that the serving of monthly free meals goes smoothly

[Votive] that St Gwlady's Betty has a successful angiplasty and her health might continue to improve

[Votive] that Telepath might have continued employment and in thanks for her prayer ministry here

[Votive] that Lucia's son recovers from his fever and sudden sickness, that Lucia's anxiety is eased

Thank you for the prayers for my friend Jan -- she is in great anxiety about the forthcoming mastectomy and unable to sleep.

And I spent time yesterday at the Themba Care hospice in Grabouw, such a peaceful and caring place despite having limited resources in a deprived community. For all those living with terminal illness [Votive]

[Votive] Reading and praying.

So thankful this ship sails.

Prayers appreciated for my search for childcare for Malinette and Malino and for wisdom to choose well for them if I find more than one option.

Thanks for your prayers. After several bouts of sickness it seemed wise to get son checked out at the hospital. MRI head scan shows no damage from his fall so we are reassured. Just a very unfortunate coincidence that he seems to have gone down with a nasty virus the day after the accident. Perfect timing to freak out the parents...
