Posted on 07/10/2007 11:12:40 AM PDT by Lexinom
Freeper timer has suffered a massive heart attack and could use some prayers. Doctors give him a 50/50 chance of recovery. We hope to be making the long trip to see him this afternoon/evening, the good Lord Willing.
Thank you for your prayers. His will be done...
Dear Lord, please give Timer your healing grace.
Praying that the Lord blesses Timer with a speedy and full recovery, also for strength and comfort. Also praying for all of Timer’s friends and loved ones — that God will bless them with comfort and strength as well.
Prayers for our FReind.
Please send timer our good wishes and warm regards for a quick recovery.
Prayers on way.
Done. God bless.
May God place his healing angels around timer and may His angels of comfort surround timer’s family, friends and love ones.
Notre père, qui êtes aux cieux!
Que votre nom soit sanctificié. Que votre règne vienne.
Que votre volonté soit faite, sur la terre comme au ciel.
Donnez-nous aujourd'hui notre poindre ce jour.
Pardonnez-nous nos offenses, comme nous pardonnons aussi a ceux, qui nous ont offensés,
et ne nous soumetez pas à la tentation, mais délivrez-nous du mal.
Car c'est à toi qu'appartiènne, le régne, la puissance et la gloire, pour les siècles des siècles.
Je vous salue, Marie, pleine de grâces,
le Seigneur est avec vous, vous êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes,
et Jésus le fruit de vos entrailles est béni.
Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu, priez pour nous pauvres pécheurs,
maintenant, et à l'heure de notre mort. Ainsi-soit-il.
Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)

I hope for the best; click here for a recent post wherein he expresses great confidence in modern medicine:

Prayers for healing, comfort, and strength.
We arrived Tuesday. Timer is recovering in the hospital. He is able to speak more loudly and clearly every day, and yesterday was wheeled out of ICU for about an hour to visit with the little kids, who are not allowed in ICU. The hope is to have him out of ICU sometime Saturday (today).
His blood pressure is slowly returning, and he is getting stronger every day, and seems more resolved to beat this heart disease longterm.
The family wishes to express its deep gratitude for all of your prayers.
(Mods, I’d be much obliged if you would update the thread title.)
Heaven help them and be with them.
A speedy recovery Timer! May the Lord keep you well.
Thanks to one and all for your prayers and concerns. My nephew by the way is lexinom. It was a heart attack, 2nd in a month(this on top of ulcers). First was congestive heart failure in which they pulled 2 gallons of fluid out of my lungs, this was the real deal. Monday morning(7/9)I was sweating like a tropical rain shower. So, should I call 911, and maybe end up looking like a dufuss(I HATE using up medicare monies as there are far more worthy people than me who really need it)? But I did, last thing I remember was looking at the feet/lower legs of the EMT guy. If they had been 10 minutes later I wouldn’t be here.
Woke up wednesday morning in ICU. My cousin tereasa asked me on tuesday if I’d seen death’s door(I was completely out of it, on ventilator, remember nothing). I told her : No, just galloped on by she said(I’m a MONTANAN)...
So it looks like a “ring job”(bypass)in a month but hey, we all get there. How often do we pause in our busy day and reflect upon the meaning of our individual life, what it meant to others? Ronald Reagan : what great thing did YOU ever do? Ghandi : murders and thieves come and go, but the truth and love are forever. And of course our beloved lord Jesus waits for us beyond the grave, having defeated death.
By the stats then I should have been GONE a week ago but THEY up there want me to stick around for awhile for some reason, maybe it’s because I’m an architect/inventor and beyond Einstein/Heisenberg, what do I know? What I DO know is that I keep a whole TEAM of guardian angels busy....
All I know it that I’ve been persecuted for righteousness sake(30 years ago, leaving family and home behind)and the last 4 months have been JOB’s sorrows. But then didn’t HE say you have to bear your cross? Thus as YOU are persecuted for your faith, thumped on, yelled at...smile, HE is making you his own child. GOD himself(in my view)was also crucified by the 24 elders before the Big Bang. Imagine HIS loneliness in the darkness as an outcast, much as Jesus felt upon the cross when everyone had deserted him.
Finally HE came to realize that only by SELF SACRIFICE could the wonder of creation come about. You understand a mother giving her life to save her child, yes? Thus in my view, GOD, in DYING, gave LIFE to YOU and all the universe around you. Jesus alluded to this when he said that a man can have no greater love than to give his life for his friends.
Yes, I know the science beyond what is now known, but who made science, and everything else? Some dufuss human, or someone who long, long ago, in galaxies far, far away, reached out with blind faith(there was no LIGHT, remember?)to create YOU as a kindred soul?
So we all meet in that valley, passing on to another life, another existence, many don’t make it upward, a few find that narrow, poorly marked exit lane off the freeway, and do rise up to that QM world to come. Patience and faith my friends, patience and faith; it is not for nothing that we are still here, living the best lives we can....
Again, thank you all, it means so very much to me...
GREAT and mighty God, who bringest down to the
grave, and bringest up again; We bless thy wonderful
goodness, for having turned our heaviness into joy and
our mourning into gladness, by restoring this our brother
to some degree of his former health. Blessed be thy Name
that thou didst not forsake him in his sickness; but didst
visit him with comforts from above; didst support him in
patience and submission to thy will; and at last didst send
him seasonable relief. Perfect, we beseech thee, this thy
mercy towards him; and prosper the means which shall
be made use of for his cure: that, being restored to health
of body, vigour of mind, and cheerfulness of spirit, he may
be able to go to thine house, to offer thee an oblation
with great gladness, and to bless thy holy Name for all thygoodness towards him; through Jesus Christ our Saviour,
to whom, with thee and the Holy Spirit, be all honour and
glory, world without end. Amen.
Earnest prayers from Louisiana ... may the Lord’s abundant love and care be with timer, the doctors and nurses treating him and those friends and family who are suffering as a result of this.
Funny that you should say brought down to the grave. We just got hit in the flathead valley with a REAL hurricane, 65 mph winds. It happens every 10 years or so with super hot temps and violent thunderstorms in the middle of the summer. I just lost 7 of my biggest trees, 2+ ft diameter, brought down like matchsticks, roots and all.
One wonders : does this qualify as the trials of JOB? Is GOD communicating something here? He must not like my new hedge that I worked SO HARD on, one of the trees was perfectly DUMPED right on half of it, completely wiping it out. What message is that? Maybe like my heart : half GONE, half left....go figure....
Prayers for timer.
You are welcome and more prayers are on the way.
Aside from your probably paying for that ambulance ride many times over via your paychecks, you needed help, you got it and that’s the way it’s supposed to be.
As to your guardian angels, you do seem to be putting them through their paces. : )
My thoughts and prayers are with you, FRiend.
May God comfort and heal you.
Prayers for timer.
Many may not know that his siblings kidnapped his ailing mother some months ago and forced her to sign a new will excluding timer. Then put her in a home refusing him access—all kinds of skullduggery.
Has weighed on him terribly.
Any update on all that Lex?
Please give him my best and that am praying for his wholeness, healing, recovery etc.
He’s back home - see Post #82!
Hi timer, thanks for your post #82, thanks for testifying to your faith in the Lord Jesus, the Victor over death now and forever. Blessings,
Try not to refine too much on what may be God's word, but also may be just a stormy year and the perversity of inanimate objects (like trees and hedges).
(I'd light a candle to your Guardian Angel just in case though < g > )
You silly rabbit drama king!
Glad to have you back!
Please leave the stunts to the professionals!
And please adjust your priorities in favor of your health!
Thanks for the update.
Have to go buy heart med-pills now but more detailed response later. You may not AGREE with all of my ideas on our lord and all it meant in the past, and in the future, but perhaps you’ll come to see that integration of science and religion are crucial in this end time.
Hey my friend. A real bummer : just get home from the hospital and 10 hours later an honest-to-God HURRICANE RIPS half of my big trees out by the roots. These are BIG suckers, 80-90 year old giants, 65 mph winds and KA-WHAM - GONE. As a working fool, normally I’d be out there w/my chain saw, but now w/a weak heart = uhuh. My guardian angel crew has had a busy month already, this requires a full timber crew with CRANE, probably they should subcontract this job out...
Oh well, it reminds one that great oaks fall and acorns grow. What we think of as permanent, even our very lives, are but a part of a much larger picture. The tree may be gone but the fruit lives on.
