   Iacta alea est  My daughters Lucy (14 ) and Ellen (11 going on 25 ) will be here this Saturday. I am praying that by their mere presence they will raise the spirits of their grandparents. This year the "Christmas spirit" needs a booster shot, and I am hoping my 2 beauties will act as a tonic for Mom & Dad.

   Iacta alea est  Morning everyone. My Dad had a fall at the re-hab hospital Saturday....fractured his hip. Spoke with his surgeon and he told me that Dad's fracture is small, so no hip replacement will (probably ) be neccessary. But Dad is having surgery to repair the fracture (smaller incision, less time under anesthesia ) Prayers for Dad and the surgical team are welcomed.

   Escaped commieny  Just so you know, WARRIORS, the prayers are working. The Doc did an x-ray on the 5th and said he would probably need surgery to re-attach the ligament, but DH is out of the brace and getting around pretty good on crutches, he had an MRI today and we will know on the 16 th if he, indeed, needs surgery, so far so good. Still haven't heard where our rig is, but supposed to be driven to Atlanta, where they will pack up our stuff and FedX, but this is the busiest of times and a shortage of drivers makes us low priority, customers come first, and I understand. Thanks again. Prayers from Florida for all that are needed by the posters ( our family, by different mothers, LOL )

   BirdsNest  Our friend Teresa is getting ready to be hit by a train. The 17th is coming and that is the anniversary of the death of her youngest son, it will be 1 year. She is visibly sad on the 17th of every month, and I hope this year she is off from work that day. The pain on her face is heartbreaking. I am hoping that after this benchmark anniversary she can let the pain slip a bit and enjoy life. Prayers for her to move beyond this.

   BirdsNest  Saw her yesterday and asked about her grand daughter(4 months old ). Hoping to remind her in a subtle way that she does have something else in her life to funnel her love and protection to. I really am bad at helping people in this way, clumsy even. We had dinner with an older couple that lost their grown son 5 months ago. The pain is raw there for both still. We do what we can to support them.

   BirdsNest  Hagar has an appointment with a gastro doctor Tuesday morning, his doctor called this doc and asked for him to move up the appointment. Hagar had a bad weekend and he managed to get in to see his doc this morning. Lots of head scratching from the doctor, unexplained random fevers and extreme abdominal pain. Prayers would help tremendously, thanks.

   BirdsNest  Seems Hagar will be scheduled for a colonoscopy in Jan. He is NOT happy. He was a complete grump once we left the docs office, I understand it is a big deal, but don't bite my head off. I told him if he wanted to be ugly with someone, to snap at the sales people in Lowe's who were too busy having a social meeting to help the few customers they had-anyway none of them had to go home with him, so he needed to be nice to me. He apologized.

   Hollyhock  Bird, sorry that Hagar has the dreaded test to look forward to. Probably needed to make a proper diagnosis. Just thinking about that test makes me grumpy too.
December 2 at 20:35 EST .

   BirdsNest  Yes, HH the test is needed to try to locate the source for his pain. I am totally understanding of all he is going through, I am right there by his side through all of this. But that snip he threw at me yesterday caused me to make him stop and realize the frustration he was going through was due to the lousy customer service in Lowe's, not something I did. He immediately apologized and for that he was forgiven. This whole mess is taking a toll on him, and I am doing my best to be supportive. Neither of us has anyone else to depend on in a crisis,so we need to be "there" for each other 24/7.

   Escaped commieny  The worst part of the scope is the day before drinking carp and living on the throne. The test itself is painless. Get lots of Popsicles, but NO red ones. See the Health wall, not to scare you, but info to prevent problems. I told them I get headaches from fasting, so they scheduled me first thing am, and doubled the 'jug' of stuff to work fast. I hear you, we are alone too, and have to be there for each other, even when there are times it's 1200 miles away.

   MeiDei  Bird I never stopped praying for you both & will continue to do so. My son has had two colonoscopies (is that the plural? ) & the worst part is drinking the "Go Lightly" but there is a newer version & it's not all that bad (like Kool Aid, & you get to pick your flavor - I was lucky to have it before surgery a few years back ). It will be a stay-at-home day, hope he likes to read while sitting.

   Escaped commieny  Thank you all for your prayers and emails. DH is on a bus,for 24 hrs, in a leg brace , but I can pick him up and get him home. Don't know when we will get our rig full of personal stuff home. Insurance doesn't allow just anyone to drive it home, but Surfie, Bless Your Heart for the thought. It might heal or surgery, don't know at this time. At least it was the right leg, the left is the one autographed by Viet Nam, even so we are blessed. Iacta, H&G, MD, all of you- thanks again, from the bottom of my heart and know all have been in my prayers too,and I never forget to offer the healing power of the Holy Spirit for Mags.

I had to use the International Speedway to get him from the Daytona Beach station, It's Turkey Run at the speedway and the total populations of several states are all on the street !! Bumper to Bumper for miles. Some really beautiful antique vehicles, when cars were cars and men were, well you get my drift. WOW, wish I could have taken pictures.

   Iacta alea est  When it rains, it pours. Yesterday in church (in Ohio ) my 14 yr.old daughter passed out. After 4 hrs. in the ER she was released andmy ex was told this was not uncommon with young girls who are having their "monthy visit". But Lucy didn't sleep all night, had a bad headache and her eyes are sensitive to light. So Lucy is with her mom as I write this at the doctor's office. Could all of you prayer warriors include my girl in your prayers? I am so grateful for all of you.

   Iacta alea est  Thanks Mei, and something good to report. Lu's doctor checked her out and basically agreed with the ER doctor's assessment. He also said she fine neurologically. A big relief and bigger blessing. Thanks to Him and to you for your prayers. So, now..how is your son? You and he continue to be prayed for here in the northeast.

   Iacta alea est  Well....a couple of months ago my mom had a long hospitalization ordeal with a tear in her aorta. The prayer warriors here at the Connection weighed in with their supplications and mom has been home now for 5 weeks and doing well. I thank you all again for your prayers. My dad has been hospitalized since Nov. 4 with a pneumonia infection and excessive fluid build up due to end stage renal disease. Yesterday, the vascular surgeon did a "low-risk procedure on a high risk patient" to implant a device to enable Dad to start kidney dialysis. The operation was a success, but we don't know when Dad will be discharged. We are hoping to have him home in time for Thanksgiving and that he stays well (via dialysis ) for Christmas and beyond. His situation isn't good for Mom because her doctors said the best treatment for her is to keep her blood pressure low. So dear hearts, would you please send up a few prayers for my mom and dad? With love, Dom

If I may piggy-back for a prayer request: My son has just had an old wound reopen for the third time in the hip area, on the side he sleeps on. The other two required many months (6-9 ) of home nursing care via the VNA, followed by surgical repair and hospitalization. Each time before was at Thanksgiving. Thank you all.

   MeiDei  Thank you all, Dr. did minor surgery on wound sent him home with some supplies; goes back in 10 days. Visiting nurses start soon but they don't come holidays or weekends. The hospital gave me the recipe for one of the liquid solutions - I guess they trust me to be a good on-call/substitute nurse. I think he'll go back on specialized air circulating mattress.

   BirdsNest  Thank you to those that prayed for our friend Danny. We saw him today, he had surgery and is in a cervical collar and is on a short leash to be sure(no lifting, etc )but he looks healthy. Before he left here he was in so much pain he was ghostly looking, today he had colour in his face. He is staying with family til he is much better-he asked how the chickens were doing. We took them to our place where they escape their pen daily.
So thank you all.
