My father
« on: May 14, 2007, 10:54:13 PM »
Please pray for my father (Kenneth), whom is going through multiple medical issues at once.  Lately he has been suffering from an unknown respiratory ailment that has been worsened by his pre-existing sarcoidosis.  He has gone through rounds of various tests and seen specialists from all over the province and all tests have come back inconclusive.  They decided to start all the tests over again and in the latest batch of x-rays, it was discovered he has osteoarthritis in his spine (from several severe car accidents in his youth and on top of osteoarthritis in his knees and hands).  He is in a lot of pain, takes a cocktail of medication daily, has 5 puffers, yet still puts in 10-12 hour days to support his family.  I pray that the doctors soon find what is ailing his breathing and his pain is eased since it may come to the point that he will have to go on disability leave from it.

Thank you.

Kyrie Eleison!  Hospodi pomiluj!  Lord have mercy!
Zastupnice christianov nepostydnaja, chodatajice ko Tvorcu nepreložnaja, ne prezri hr’išnych molenij hlasy, popredvari jako blahaja na pomošč nas, virno vopijuščich ti: Uskori na molitvu, i potščisja na umolenije, zastupajušči prisno Bohorodice, čtuščich t’a.

An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.
