Topics I've Started

Total hip replacement Monday, 9/10

09 September 2018 - 05:55 PM

Dear Lord,


Surgery is tomorrow! Please protect the kidney transplant during this major procedure. May it not suffer any ischemia or other injury. May it work well for the rest of my life.


A lot of obstacles have been thrown in my path. TY for clearing one after another. A lot of them still stand in the way of my quality of life, but Your grace is sufficient. May nothing happen to delay the surgery further.


May all go smoothly. TY that Dr. S. talked to Dr. C. May Dr. C. do all the surgery himself. Give him great wisdom, knowledge, skill + compassion. May he be extremely careful + may there be no mishaps or mistakes or complications.


May there be no issues with side effects of meds or anesthesia. May I heal quickly + may I regain normal mobility + strength.


In Your precious name, amen.

Another endoscopy on 9/4

03 September 2018 - 06:31 PM

Dear Lord,


I sure get tired of all these endoscopies. I pray that there will finally be improvement in the esophagitis/ulceration + that the biopsies taken will be negative.


TY for always being with me + protecting me. TY that Dee is giving me a ride. Please bless her.


In Your precious name, amen.

Dear Lord,


Keep A safe as she travels over Labor Day to see the family from a foreign country whose daughter she taught English to several years ago. May they all have a good time + may all get to + from where they need to go safely.


May A stay in close fellowship with You now + forever.


In Your precious name, amen.

Biopsy of possible skin cancer on sister on 8/30

23 August 2018 - 06:39 PM

Dear Lord,


B has a small but suspicious double mole on her ankle. It is black. She's worried about melanoma. I hate to see her living in torment all the time. Her biopsy is 8/30. May it be negative.


Please give B peace. She is constantly anxious + paranoid, thinking someone is coming into her apt. + moving things or defacing the woodwork or sink. I told her to put a surveillance camera up for peace of mind.


In Your precious name, amen.

Schizophrenic sister wants to move closer to me

16 June 2018 - 11:00 AM

Dear Lord,


I don't think B is thinking this thru. I'm afraid she is letting her paranoia drive her away from the support system she has in a city an hour away bc she thinks "they" have certain expectations of her; moving is one-- among other things. You know all the reasons it concerns me to have her move. If this is the wrong decision please hold up a stop sign for her so she will rethink this.


She's already looking at an apt. today. It is more expensive to live here + I don't think she realizes what a drastic change it will be. But some of my concerns are selfish.  It's hard enough to cope with her verbalizing her paranoid ideation to me in divided doses. What would it be like if I were bombarded with it more often? That's what I'd like to avoid. Forgive me for my selfishness + help me to do what is best for her.


In Your precious name, amen.
