Friends' illness (very serious)
« on: September 07, 2010, 10:39:46 PM »
My friend and fellow chanter-in-arms, Rdr. Moses was admitted to the hospital on Sunday for what seems to be cellulitis.  Though he seemed to be doing fine in the ER, he was later admitted to a room for observation where his condition deteriorated quite quickly. He started running a fever and if it were not for the efforts of one of the nurses to get him moved to the ICU, who knows what would have happened.  Anyway, he is now being tested for necrotizing fasceatis which can be fatal (the mortality rate is 50%) and is hooked up to a respirator as he cannot breathe on his own. His condition is listed as "critical."  He is the father of 3 very young children (his youngest is only 8 months old) and a very loving husband.  We are all very concerned for him.  Keep him in your prayers.  Lord, have mercy.

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Lord have mercy!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.
