   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.

   MeiDei  Done. Sounds like migraine - will keep her in our prayers.
This happened to me when I was a sophomore, went to my grandmother's after early release, fainted on her steps - tea laced with whiskey is what I got....never happened again. : )

   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, 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

   MeiDei  Yes, of course. Keep us posted. Your parents should be proud of you 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  My son is going to the hospital Monday; there's a good chance they will keep him in, so we're having Thanksgiving this weekend - it will be a rare time that I'm early to get something done : ) Happy Thanksgiving to 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.

   Gerty  "Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows."
— Blessed Pope Paul VI

   Gerty  This is interesting. It is also a good example of actual quotes from holy people which can be used... and used...and used!

Pope Paul VI tells us to aspire to a joyful life, live life to the fullest, use the talents we have, etc.

No where is there an OK to go against the Ten Commandments.

Can you imagine what a spin dr. could do with this quote?

Kind of makes you wonder about the words of Pope Francis and what the MSM is doing with the Pope's words.

   StarFire  Please include our soldiers and their families in your prayers. Many are being sent to battle Ebola in a third world country when we can't even prevent the spread in our hospitals here.

An enemy you can’t see is a terrible foe.

Somebody tell Obama and his minions that 'wars' are for two or more SIMILAR forms of life--that is, of course, unless you are trying to harm our military by sending them on an impossible mission.

   MeiDei  It's an uplifting story & wanting to know more I found his name is: KHODOR SHAMI - so I researched it. There's some question about his authenticity as an ex-terrorist. I have no discernment on this one.

   Phooey  Thank you, MeiDei ! I'm guilty of not doing research however, what I found was all the negativity was from left-wing and Muslim(Cair ) sources. Forgive me if I decide to 'Delete'.

   Iacta alea est  With much gratitude and tons of thanks to all the Connection prayer warriors, I want to tell you all that my mom is coming home tomorrow. She has been hospitalized since Aug. 25th and it is truly a miracle that she gets to come home to us. Your prayers have been a blessing to Mom and all the rest of her family. Much love to you all.

   BirdsNest  I am asking for prayers for our friend Danny.

He is due to have surgery next week on a serious spine problem, one that could leave him in a bad way. Even with surgery he could be a cripple. He is an artist and paints the most beautiful pictures of days gone by. I don't know if I should list his website, mainly because if someone wanted to buy a painting he has no agent anymore. All the paintings he has are at a show in Carolina and a couple of them are here locally. We have talked about trying to secure them in his absence, one is huge. His place is not secure, he had been working to close it up for the winter when all the medical problems came to the forefront of his life.

Bird, I know paralysis is tough - but it seems only the really tough can manage it well with God's grace. My prayers are for your friend, his doctors & nurses; & for you for being kind enough to request them. Think positive & expect good news.
