Prayers for a member of our Fr. T. family.

Our friend Fran O'Gorman has posted that they received what may possibly be very bad news concerning the health of her husband Tim. Brothers and Sisters, please join us in prayers for Fran and Tim.

O God of peace, who hast taught us that in returning and rest we shall be saved, in quietness and confidence shall be our strength: By the might of thy Spirit lift Tim and Fran, we pray thee, to thy presence, where they may be still and know that thou art God; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Almighty God, we entrust Tim and Fran, and all who are dear to us to thy never-failing care and love, for this life and the life to come, knowing that thou art doing for them better things than we can desire or pray for; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


Some good news also about Tim's white count. The doctor called last night and we learned that Tim's white count is almost half of what it was before. The hydroxurea is working- thank God and you for your prayers.. love, Fran


We finally got the EMG done which is a test to see how the nerves are or aren't firing in Tim's leg and thank God there is activity there. Because of Tim's myelofibrosis they couldn't evacuate the hematoma which they usually would do so how long it will take to completely resolve itself and everything to come back is hard to predict but they say but it should. Meantime we are finishing up the PT we were approved of from the group we were going to in Monroe and then will go several times a week to the day hospital part of Helen Hayes Hospital which is in West Haverstraw for 8 weeks. They have aqua therapy and extensive equipment and hopefully a setup that is appropriate for what he needs. Thanks so much for your prayers.. love, Fran
