    Yesterday I asked some friends to pray for me over at facebook, because I was having some stomach troubles. Well this morning I think my troubles may be worse than I thought.

The pain went away, but I was sweating bullets and the whole experience was extremely painful. Then about 45 minutes later it all happened again, but this time all that came out was bile. I again felt better afterwards, and then every 45 minutes through the day I...

He had members of his church and FReepers praying for him. His family needs prayers now as they are really torn. Thanks again everyone.
