I'd like to request a couple prayers.
One friend's friend from another message board was hospitalized and may not make it through the night. VERY low levels of oxygen in the blood. She was in the last stages before being able to announce being a cancer survivor. (Not sure how much of the details they'd want being posted.)
Another friend's dog who was a senior rescue is going through a rough patch. Has been quite healthy until now. Treatment may or may not help. The dog
will be stable one moment, the next levels of things are all over the charts. One moment we're celebrating good news, the next the dog is right back at the clinic fighting for its life. This dog and woman love each other dearly and have had such a short time together. Please pray that the dog gets at least a few more comfortable months here on earth being loved. (again... not going into personal details.)
I just found out that one of my favorite neighbors from my old neighborhood passed away. He was more like family to me. Please pray for his wife. (I've retyped the text here several times, but nothing came out right or not too personal... Just know that it may be harder for her than it should have to be. Not that loosing a loved spouse is ever easy.)
And keeping with what i posted before... Please take time to think upon five things you are grateful for. You don't have to post them.
I am grateful for a significant other who realizes when he is insensitive and isn't too stubborn to apologize. I am grateful for threads like these where people can reach out to each other. I am grateful for all the food that died so that i may nourish my body. I am grateful that the gift of art exists and the ability to appreciate it. I am grateful for empathy. It may be painful and cumbersome, but it is a wonderful tool.

Please, if your dog is arthritic look into getting it Elk Velvet Antler. Look up my posts on it, PM me, or look it up on a search engine; but please if you love your dog and want it to live many more years consider this option. I've seen so many posts on here about dogs needlessly suffering. I can't make a new post about EVA every time so this plea is going here. EVA also helps with other ailments such as anemia.
