Please remember my friend in your prayers this weekend
10/26/12

Posted on 10/26/2012 7:11:34 PM PDT by workerbee

I am humbly asking all in the FReeper community to say a prayer for my friend Tim. He has been battling amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS -- also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease) for the past 2-1/2 years. Today my dear friend Cindy, his wife, told me that he has gone almost completely non-responsive. The hospice care workers have told her it's doubtful he will last beyond the weekend. Please, if you could spare a prayer for Tim during your personal prayers and/or at your church service over the weekend, I would appreciate it. He will leave behind his wife and 12-yr-old twins.

Prayers up for Tim, his wife and the precious twins. Their minds will know he is in a far better place but their hearts will feel broken. Pray that God will watch over this family in their time of such tremendous grief and you for being there to help them through it all.

We lost a church member to ALS recently, only in his 50s. I’ll be in prayer for your friend and his family.

The Knights of Columbus built a ramp so the gentleman could be taken in and out of his house easily, but he lived only a few weeks more. Very, very sad.

ALS is a locked in disease. Your unresponsive because you can't respond, not that your unaware. I would urge all of his family, friends and church to spend time talking and reading to him. build a schedule and staff it. 24/7. Not being alone and knowing your people understand will dramatically reduce the fear he has. I would space the family, wife first and last, kids during the day, everyone else as they can.

There is a nerve ganglia mid forehead, just above the eyebrows. An upward stroke has been proven to calm all mammals.

I'll keep them all in my thoughts.

Father, we most humbly ask you grant our fellow Freepers friend mercy, the wife strength and guidance, and the children assurance that their Daddy is going to be where he can be well, and will be waiting to see them again one day...

Amen.

My best friend passed from ALS...his body quit working, but not his mind. Unresponsive or not....talk to him.

It’s a cruel disease. The mind is not affected so they know all that is going on and they can’t respond. My Mother-In-Law had ALS for 13 years. She had around the clock care and was given a lot of vitamins. Not sure if anyone else has survived that long with it but it was miserable for all the family. Prayers for Tim and his family.

Prayers of peace for for your friend Tim and for peace and strength for his wife and children. This is a dreadful disease. We lost a dear, brave friend to it about 4 years ago. If a tenth of the money that was available for Aids research was given to research for ALS I’m sure that a cure could be found very quickly.
