    I am so sorry to read this, and your family will be in my prayers. A stroke is a terrible thing to experience. My brother had a massive stroke at 59, and passed away from complications of it after 5 years. After the stroke, he was never able to work another day in his life. He and his wife had just relocated to a new area, and he wasn't long on his new job when stricken, and his wife had just started her new job a few days before. They had no medical insurance that would cover the enormous expenses incurred, but they did get some sort of government assistance. Of course my brother qualified for disability, and I believe that his wife also got some sort of assistance, since she quit work to care for him at home. They lived in FL, so there might have been programs offered there that aren't available in NY - I can't say for certain. I'd advise your aunt to haunt every agency she can possibly think of, and leave no stone unturned. Sorry I can't be of more help than that.
    Again - my prayers to all of your family, but especially your aunt and uncle at this very difficult time.
    I've Been Boo'd
    Thanks, Barry

    I am asking for some prayers. I have been having some health issues lately. One is an attempt in getting pregnant and the other is a spot by my ear that has been bothering me lately. I have an appointment with the dermatologist at the end of April and am so terrified it will come out bad. These two issues has almost sucked dry my HSA and still have a couple thousand dollars before my deductible kicks in. Pray that these issues are worked out and that the money is provided to pay for all these doctor visits.

    Good luck, I tried for 9 years for my first child. I know it is heartbreaking.

    I think we should all take a moment to remember those that have lost their lives in the recent storms across the country. Today in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, there were at least 25 people that lost their lives, and today in Chattanooga, Tennessee, a person was also killed because they didn't make it to safety in time. Sending prayers that no more damage or death will occur and that their families will be safe and thought of in their time of loss.

    Asking for prayers for my BFF Irene. She is just 45; peripheral artery disease and type 2 diabetes run in her family; she has both and has had two heart attacks while in her early 40s (one she didn't even know she had).

    She knows she has to quit smoking and has had success and then gone back. A recent ultrasound showed that the vein on the right side of her neck (maybe artery?) is 70% narrowed. This will mean surgery; she is at high risk for stroke; she is really scared because this is what killed her mom.

    She is throwing her cigarettes away on Saturday. Please sent prayers that she stays clean this time. She says it is all that she can do, and she thinks it is too late - but she is doing it.

    Thanks.

    How is your BFF now?

    Asking for prayers for my husbands family. As some of you know, his young cousin was killed by her boyfriend last Friday morning. The funeral is this coming Sunday. Please pray for them to have some way to get through this tragedy.

    Please help

    I would like to ask that everyone put Ratatat in their prayers. I love my rat and I don't want to see her go. I am trying to raise $900 dollars for her surgery using this site http://www.indiegogo.com/Surgery-for-my-pet-Ratatat (there is a picture of her on there) and if i don't reach my goal I'm donating all of the money I do receive to the Best Friends Animal Society. If you have some money to spare and would like to contribute please do but if you don't a prayer would be more than enough.

    thank you all and god bless,
    Joshua

    My co-worker who had the cancer surgery is recovering slowly. We had a nice note from her last week.

    My sister-in-law's father has developed dementia. His dementia has changed and at times he now has periods of agitation. I'm sure it is scary for her to see him confused and agitated. My dad was confused for two days when he was in the hospital after his heart surgery and that was very scary.

    My mom was admitted to hospital last night after an afternoon of frequent vomiting and horrible cramps (no diarrhea). I drove to her place about 9:30 and had keys to get right into her apartment. At her age, dehydration is a big scare, so we drove down to Emerg and she got a bed in that department about an hour and a half later.

    They put some Zofran in her IV for the nausea, and a light dose of morphine for the pain a little later. It was great to see her colour come back and that she was relaxed and comfortable.

    Two sets of x-rays, blood work, and she was off for a CT Scan when I called this morning. The obstruction is a slight regrowth of adhesions that she had clipped about 20 years ago. The docs are going to use surgery as a last resort, and she'll be in for 2 or 3 days as they get her settled and fixed up.

    She still was able to joke a bit - not lacking a sense of humour.

    Prayers are appreciated - she's the only fambly I got!

    Thanks, Mary and Gini...I don't know how frightened I was...but she IS 78 albeit in good health. Yoga, power walks, etc - doesn't smoke and drinks very little - her Parkinson's meds have done wonders.

    Yet she IS 78 - and she looked so frail, her voice hoarse from all the vomiting. I was close to crying a couple of times, but wanted to be there totally for her. I didn't leave til she felt ok and a plan of action had been determined.

    Oddly, at one point she said, "Thank God we don't have to pay for any of this." The $13.00 for hospital parking was nothing.

    Got to sleep at 3 am. Mom is totally worth getting tired over. And more.
