    My mother Betty, 87 years young, fell and broke her leg. She's scheduled for a rod implant surgery tomorrow at 7 AM. She's a wonderful lady, active with her church and circle, and still mentally sharp. She's doing well after her fall, and was very positive when I spoke to her earlier today. I would greatly appreciate your prayers and good thoughts! God Bless!

    My sister Barb has cancer on the brain now. According to her doctors today, she is in dire need of care. Part of the roller coaster of the last few days (especially for me, because I was dead-set against it) is that she has abandoned regular medicine and has gone in for the "naturopath" route of tons of supplements and the like. Now we need to confront her and get her to change her mind. The doctors told her husband it is imperative; time is of the essence. Time is exactly a prime reason I'm against playing around with "alternatives"....

It appears that he has been 'doctor shopping' for prescriptions, and has gotten involved with some other relapsing druggies. *SIGH* It's been ten years since he got SOBER, but since he's on prescription drugs for back pain, he never really did get 'clean.'

    GUINSAUGON, Philippines - High-tech gear detected "signs of life" Monday at the site of an elementary school buried under mud that swept down a hillside soaked by rain in the eastern Philippines, the provincial governor said. Sounds of scratching and a rhythmic tapping were picked up by seismic sensors and sound-detection gear brought in by U.S. and Malaysian forces, said South Leyte Gov. Rosette Lerias. Generator-powered lights were set up to allow teams of rescue workers to dig through the sludge during the night. "To me, that's more than enough reason to smile and be happy," Lerias said.

Junior's platelet count was down to twelve. Rick advised me that the regular count is up around one hundred or so (I'm not a physician, so I'm not certain), but the count was definitely twelve.

She requested they stop resusciating her sometime around 10:00 PST although they kept it up anyway (yeah brave nurses and docs!) so that a local sibling could get to the hospital in time. Her blood pressure is normally very low, and it's dropped...

    I would like to ask for prayers for my father. He has a very unsual condition. He had heart surgery two years ago and was released from the hospital with nearly 20 lbs. of fluid retention. This ultimately developed into pnenmomia and the ensuing coughing was violent enough that he tore the wires that had been used to wire his sternum after the surgery. I guess this is extremely rare. He is very uncomfortable now and he has something akin to spasms in his chest from this condition. He went back to his surgeon and was told they could re-operate...

    A little over a month ago my dad was diagnosed with inoperable cancer in his left lung. The plan was to go through chemo to try and bring it under control. He has since undergone one round of chemo. The other day he took a turn for the worse and had to be rushed to the hospital, he was very pale and had to be rushed to the hospital because of shortness of breath. He now is unconscious and on life support. In addition to having double pneumonia he has several blood clots, one of which is lodged in his...

    It is with a sad heart that I bring this update about Fr. Phil. Today sometime, Phil's family are moving him to the nursing home in the area for hospice care. My understanding is that he has not been awake since yesterday. It is a time for prayers for Phil, his family and for us his parish.

    The body of my son Vincent died today.

    I am PINGING you all tonight because we have had a tragedy in our family today.   My little sister (Renee, 33) and her husband (Kirk, 39) were expecting their first child today.  Renee was induced this morning at a hospital in Grand Rapids, MI.  She was having normal contractions for about three hours and then after her water was broken she began to bleed heavily.  She was rushed in for an emergency C-Section and although the baby was delivered within 4 minutes she had lost too much blood for them to revive her. My niece, little Samantha Sangsland is now in...

    I got some devastating news, twofold today. One, I have lost my current job with Home Depot. I am still trying to wrap my head around that. But number two is even worse. My wife no longer feels she can rely on me, even though God knows I try the best I can, and things were going smoothly until right now, but she has called it quits on our marriage. It hurts me very much to actually be writing this in a public forum, but I am not sure what else to do. My lifeline, my reason for living, has...
