My son
« on: July 21, 2013, 12:58:58 AM »
Pray for my son. He swallowed an Egyptian 1LE coin today, about the size of an American gold dollar coin(no clue how he managed it w/o choking, but thank God). It is currently floating around his small intestines on x-ray and doctors said it should 'most likely' make an exit in 2-3 days but due to the size they can't be 100% sure. We are going for a follow-up in 3 days and praying they don't have to go in after it.

Lord have mercy on Rebecca Ann's son and his mother.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

Ouch!

Lord, have mercy!  I hope it finds its own way out.
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.
—St. Isaac of Syria

The boy is 5....apparently he was trying to make his toddler brother laugh by spitting coins out and accidentally swallowed one. Sigh, still no coin but he says he feels fine.
