GT'er 23Skidoo Needs Prayers (Glocktalk)
He's had another stroke, his second in 2 years. This one sounds even worse than the first, from what his sister-in-law has said so far. This is what she posted initially, on 7/31
"I AM ASKING FOR PRAYERS FOR MY BROTHER-N-LAW. HE HAS HAD ANOTHER STROKE THIS MORNING AND AS OF RIGHT NOW THINGS DON'T LOOK VERY GOOD. SO PLEASE ASK GOD TO HELP HIM RECOVER."
And this is the update she gave me later,
"LONE UPDATE.....HE HASN'T WOKE UP YET BUT WHEN I GOT UP THERE I STARTED I STARTED PESTERING HIM TO WAKE UP AND HE DID OPEN HIS EYES BUT ONLY FOR A FEW SECONDS. HE IS MOVING BOTH LEGS AND BOTH ARMS. HE JUST WON'T WAKE UP YET. THE BLEED IN THE BRAIN IS ON THE RIGHT SIDE THIS TIME. THIS STROKE CAME OUT OF NOWHERE. THANK GOD HIS SISTER WAS THERE TO CALL 911 AND GET HIM TO THE HOSPITAL. I'LL TALK TO YOU TOMORROW AFTER I GET BACK FROM HOSPITAL AND GIVE YOU AN UPDATE"
Please send up prayers, mojo, good thoughts, etc for one of our own who needs it right now. Skidoo is a great guy and a good friend to many.
ETA: Here's the sad update from his sister as of this afternoon, (a few days ago)
"To friends and family. He had another stroke,on Sunday morning. He has lost his ability to speak and to swallow. He has directives that do not allow a feeding tube, ventilator, etc. Since he can't swallow his saliva is collecting in his lungs and he will get phenumonia. He can still communicate with thumbs up and down and he has chosen to go to Hubbard Hospice House to die. They say it will be about ten days. Please pray for God to comfort him and make this journey go as painlessly as possible.:
Then, another update...My friend Lone_Wolfe (who was shot in theater, survived against all odds and is now struggling with cancer) flew to be with him and he changed his mind and wants to fight to live. Wolfe called the police when he had the last stroke. She hadn't heard from him in a few days and got worried. She was in the sandbox then, where she could get better care for her injuries. The police went to his house and found him on the floor having had the first stroke. If she hadn't called, he would have died then.
I’m not sure that is the same skidoo...My friend skidoo is from another forum called “Glocktalk.com”
Thank you for pinging your list for me! He can use all the prayers he can get!
Thank you all, so much...for praying for my friends!
Glad he chose to fight. Prayers for both Skidoo and Lone Wolfe.
Prayers for God’s blessings on all.
Prayers for Skidoo and family
Praying for all.
Prayers lifted for Skidoo and all of his family.
They will be in my prayers tonight.
Eternal Father, we offer Thee the merits of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus, Thy Beloved Son and my Divine Redeemer, for all my relations, friends and enemies, for the poor, the sick, and those in tribulation, and for all those for whom Thou willest I should pray, or knowest that I ought to pray.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Blessed and praised forevermore be Jesus Who hath saved us by His Precious Blood!
May God wrap his arms around them all.
Lord, your will be done for Skidoo and Lone Wolfe. They are both in your hands. Heal them if you will, in Jesus’ name.
Be, we beseech Thee, with Thy servant and guide him through the decisions he is making. Also be with his friends and comfort them all.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, amen.
