   BirdsNest  We have also been wondering how lacta's parents are doing. Hagar is putting one foot in front of the other and anxious to see the doctor Thursday-many questions, new problems to address.

   Iacta alea est  Sorry I haven't been more timely with updates. Here goes. Dad is in a re-hab hospital that can also perform dialysis. He's doing OK, but has had a couple of non-kidney related setbacks due to his own stubborness. His first Saturday there, he tried to get out of his wheelchair by himself, fell and fractured his left hip. Need to have 2 pins inserted to stabilize the hip. He's just now getting to the point where can bear weight on his left leg again.

Mom is in a different re-hab hospital now. 3 days ago she was discharged from NY Presbyterian after having a major portion of her descending aorta replaced with a Dacron "hose". So far she's been hospitalized since Dec 28 and has endured wicked pain for months before that, and a whole bunch of post-op pain. But she's made it well past the worst of it, and I'm hoping she's home by her 79th birthday, Feb. 23.

I thank all of you dear hearts for your continued prayers. Things would not be as positive as they are without them.

   Papasparky  Thank you all for your awe inspiring response to my request for Prayers for Jolly, I'll say it again -- Ldotters are the greatest people on earth!

Abe Lincoln had it right, "this nation must not perish from the earth".

I will tell Jolly of this at the appropriate time and I'm sure it will buoy his spirits greatly.

Thanks Again,
papasparky

   Papasparky  Prayers needed. One of my best email buddies, one of the "old geezers" that I sometimes mention, has come to a rough spot in the road.

He recently had a malignant brain tumor removed, and begins chemo and radiation tomorrow. His (very appropriate ) first name is Jolly and he needs our prayers to get by this spot of repairs in his life's road.

He is one of us -- old timers who are doing what we can to repair the broken rudder on our ship of state before it's too late, and through faith, we believe this is not yet his time to go Home.

Please join me and all his friends in asking God to allow him to continue the great effort to save our beloved nation

Heart felt thanks to all you Ldotters -- you are the greatest.

   Gerty  Mr. Sparky, count me in for the prayers! I am also lighting a candle (It is my way ) hoping the Holy Spirit will give Jolly the courage he will need in the coming days of treatment.
Add to that a little prayer for you--a good and caring friend Jolly is lucky to have.

   Iacta alea est  OK Prayer Warriors, you are needed again. Mom was taken down to NY Presbyterian, and another anyerism has been found. She will be having open chest surgery on 1/6/15 to repair it. High risk surgery on a high risk patient. Please pray for Mom and her surgical team. Love, Dom

   MeiDei  Will continue in prayer for her. To put your mind at ease, my mother at age 80 had the same operation for the same aneurism & survived for many years after. Today the surgery is less invasive than 20 years ago, it was explained to me late last year as I have the same condition. Years ago it was a 9-hr procedure, today it's much more micro surgery - less invasive, less hours on the table. All surgery is a risk, so I'm not making light of it. I will keep all in my prayers. It's certainly been a year of upheavals hasn't it. Here's to a happier New Year.

   Surfhut  Psalm 23. I would have become completely lost many decades ago without this beautiful scripture. For me, this is about turning my life over to a God who loves me and wants His best for me. I often don't understand the twists and turns of my life as they are occurring. Hindsight is 20/20. God is always right, if you give Him control, ask for wisdom, and take responsibility for living what you know in your heart He is leading you to. Easier said than done.

   MeiDei  Acceptance precedes understanding - acceptance doesn't mean you have to like it, just accept it & trust. As Surf said, 'easier said then done' - sometimes you get to climb the mountain just so far & then just trod along in the same circle 'til you step aside & take a rest lest you make your own rut.

   BirdsNest  Thank you,EC. There are many of us here that are on the edge with loved ones and health issues. All the prayers that come this way are multiplied and sent to everyone else. It is important to stick together. Extremely important. That burden is less to carry when you know there is someone else "out there" that will assist you.

   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.

Mom is delighted to have "her girls" here in the house, and we visited Dad today he was very happy to see them. I hope and pray things are going better for you and your son too. I lift both of you up before our Lord, and wish the same blessed Christmas to you and everyone you love.

   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.
