Prayers for Katie
« on: November 29, 2005, 08:01:20 AM »
Please pray for Katie.  She is a friend's daughter who is very sick and has been for about a week.  At first her dr. thought she had encephalitis, but I think he has ruled this out.  She has been admitted to the hospital for an MRI and other tests to try to determine what is wrong.  The dr. thinks she may be having migraines, but I have never heard of migraines causing problems like hers.

Thanks to everyone.

Lord have mercy on Katie, her family, and all the caregivers involved!

Katie's MRI was clear, but they still don't know what caused her problem.  She will stay in the hospital at least another night.  She has an IV with something for the pain.  Her mom seems more upbeat about Katie's condition though.  Thanks again to everyone who prayed for Katie and her family.

Lord, have mercy.
Quote from: Fr Alexander Schmemann
The Gospel is quite clear: both saints and sinners love God. "Religious" people do not love him, and whenever they can, they crucify him.

Of course, is not reflective of the Church, but is rather a surreal bubble. I have visited a lot of different parishes around the world and have listened to many hours of AFR...

Thank the Lord... may she see good health in the months to come!

Lord, have mercy.
