    Major major prayers needed folks.

    Long story short - a woman I know is severely alcoholic. We thought she had hit her "bottom" recently when she was hitchiking home and got a ride with a guy in a truck. She started drinking. Heavy dose of date rape drug in booze. He "offered" her at every truck stop between here and northern Ontario before she got his cell phone and called her (now ex) fiance. Truck was pulled over, guy arrested, friend in hospital, flown back home.

    She stayed with her dad - I visited her on Sunday. She went back to her fiance's home in another town. He drove her back to her dad's place early this morning - he was just done. She was drunk again on six bombers and a mickey of vodka.

    This evening neither he nor I can reach her. Her dad's home number suddenly has a French message on an answering machine. Apparently earlier today she hacked her legs and arms to find out if she is still alive.

    He has called the cops and they are on their way over. I am worried for the dad. And her.

    I know this sounds like a bad movie. But it is really happening.

    Prayers, PLEASE.

    UPDATE: She is at a city hospital that has a psych ward waiting for assessment. Her father is with her and ok. Thank you!

    Thanks, Karen and Pat. This woman's fiance heard from the father last night. He is ok. I guess they had gone to the local Urgent Care where the Mental Health dept is and they called an ambulance. She was getting a psych assessment at a city hospital last night but was too drunk for it to be completed so it will be done this morning. Apparently she had a brain injury some years ago (I never could tell!) and has really gone off the deep end in the last three months. The three of them were already seeing an addictions psychiatrist here, but she obviously needs a different intervention at the moment.

    All is as well as it can be. Thanks so much for the prayers and thoughts.

    Yeah, and probably an appointment with a neurologist as well, or a specialist used to dealing with brain trauma!

    I don't know how long ago the brain injury was, but I am sure the docs will be filled in on that.

    Thanks again.

    I have two friends who are in difficult situations. A friend from high school is moving her father into a memory care center next week. He is forgetful and at times gets angry because of all that he can't remember. A friend from college e-mailed me that her mother entered hospice care a few days ago and isn't expected to live very long. Two long time friends and my heart aches for both of them.
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    False Killer Whale Calf Rescued – Still Fighting for Its Life

    Sean Lennox · Jul 12th, 2014 · Comments

    Josie Osborne, the mayor of Tofino, B.C., uploaded this photograph of the juvenile false killer whale to Facebook on Thursday. The animal was stuck after washing ashore near a popular beach in the area. (Josie Osborne/Facebook)


    Vancouver, British Columbia – According to workers at the Marine Mammal Rescue Centre of the Vancouver Aquarium, the false killer whale calf found struggling for its life on the shores of the Vancouver Island city of Tofino has survived the night, but an uphill battle still remains if it is to survive, reports the CBC.
    Initially, rescuers thought to take the calf to deeper waters where it would be able to swim away to safety, but upon seeing that it was too weak to do that contacted staff at the aquarium who decided to take it to their facility for intensive care.



    https://vine.co/v/MxzF2qMaD2I (or go to link to see very short video of the little guy in therapy)


    Its proper gender wasn’t determined as being male until the first night as dedicated staffers took turns dawning wetsuits to keep the calf floating above the water of the rehab pool housing it. As per Martin Haulena, the aquarium’s head veterinarian, the difficulty that lies ahead with the calf, which he described as being in critical condition, relates to disconcerting drops in the mammal’s respiratory and heart rates. Thus far, staff have performed diagnostic tests on it and are caring for it with the aim of having it gain weight. By their estimates, this calf is very young have been born no more than six weeks ago. Haulena also confirmed that the calf hasn’t the strength to swim on its own.
    For now, the calf is in a rehab pool better suited to support its small size. It is being nourished on a mixture of specially designed formula for its sort of marine mammal, along with other fluids and antibiotics. Given that the calf has not yet developed teeth, Haulena said it was still nursing from its mother. Odds are against the calf surviving. Adding to the difficulty is that there is little global experience caring for stranded false killer whales much less one as young as this one.

    My college friend's mom passed peacefully at the hospice, with her family there. I'm glad they were able to be present. Have not talked to my friend from high school yet this weekend, but I'll re-post if I get an update.

    Thank you again,

    A couple I know have a son who was adopted when he was a baby. He has grown up with ADD and the parents finally tried meds after trying every other option. He can manage fine.

    He was 16 and his GF moved in with the whole family as her home life was not very good. She was expecting though very few people were told.

    I got back Tuesday morning from my cousin's inurnment and was checking obits for another friend who had passed away, and I got a shock. The wee baby girl, after kicking and everything for the past few months, was born full term - but still born.

    I can't imagine this pain except it must resemble being ripped in half.

    Prayers, please, for the expectant grandparents, aunts and uncles, and the young parents themselves. There was solid family support and that baby would have wanted for nothing, especially love.

    Thank you.
