Friends' daughter on life support
« on: October 01, 2015, 09:55:39 AM »
Found out this morning that the daughter of some very good friends of ours had a liver biopsy 3 days ago, and collapsed afterwards. She is now on life support in the Intensive Therapy Unit, with organ failure, and the next 12-24 hours is likely to be critical. Please could you pray for her, and the family. She is only 34, and is the mother of 4 kids.

Lord, have mercy on this woman according to your infinite compassion.

Through the prayers of the Theotokos...
"I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die [...] These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." -The Lord Jesus Christ

Lord, have mercy.
"For, by its immensity, the divine substance surpasses every form that our intellect reaches. Thus we are unable to apprehend it by knowing what it is. Yet we are able to have some knowledge of it by knowing what it is not." - St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa contra gentiles, I, 14.

Lord, have mercy.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Thank you all for your prayers. I have not heard anything more since yesterday. Don't know if that is a good sign or not. Will post an update when I know more.

I promised an update, and it's not looking good. Still on life support, gravely ill, and according to her mum, the doctors are saying there is "no hope" of recovery  :(
