Hey everyone, please pray for my sister, Teresa.
We took her to the ER at 1am this morning bcuz she was jaundiced. It turns out that she has hemolytic anemia, although they’re not sure what’s causing it.
Hemolytic anemia means that basically, all of her red blood cells are exploding.
Yeah and they don’t know why yet…
SO, if you guys could say a prayer for her health that would be SO BEAUTIFUL, thank you!!! Also pray for my mom who is trying to deal with her own health issue right now–all of this is really exhausting her.
Peace, love, and God Bless
Father, grant Teresa complete healing in body, soul, and spirit. Give her caregivers the grace, wisdom, knowledge, skill, compassion and proper technology to help heal her completely and give her and all who love her the grace, peace, consolation, faith, hope and love to weather this storm. Mother Mary and St. Luke, pray for her. We ask all this through Christ our Lord.

Please pray for me as I contemplate my return to the Catholic Church.
Father, guide your son back into the arms of Holy Mother Church. Mother Mary, Blessed Pope John Paul II and St. Paul, pray for him. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Don’t read anything into this but if you can spare a moment, would you say a prayer for my physical health? I don’t know if you saw my status update but I’ve come down with a really nasty case of sinusitis that has migrated into my chest. I’ve been feeling completely horrible all day, coughing, sneezing, dizzy, weak, body ache, so much so that I asked Eric to come home early. I went to our local American Family Care clinic and after the doctor heard crackling and popping when he listened to me, he gave me a steroid shot and three prescriptions. One of the things he gave me was cough syrup with hydrocodone so hopefully I can get a decent night of sleep. The timing of this could hardly be worse. We are supposed to leave early Friday morning to drive up to Pennsylvania for Christmas and while I think I’ll be better by then, I am apprehensive about everything I still have left to do before we go. Anyhow, I appreciate any prayers you can offer on my behalf.
Father, help my reader get well. Mother Mary and St. Luke, pray for her. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
