Prayers requested

I wanted to update you on Molly and ask for more prayers.  Molly is a little girl who passed out on her first day of Kindergarten because of undiagnosed pulmonary hypertension.   She experienced cardiac arrest and, as it is now known, had a stroke.  This has left her between a coma and wakefulness.  She is getting occupational therapy and music therapy and is responding slowly, but doctors now say she has extensive brain damage from the stroke.  This is on top of her need for a lung transplant.  She is in Children's Hospital in Pittsburgh with her parents.  Her twin sister and older brother are home in Delaware.  This is very hard on her entire family. 

The family is praying to Father Theodore Foley, a candidate for sainthood, for a miracle for Molly. 

I would also like to ask you for prayers for a family member of mine, M, who is being tested for Lupus, Lyme disease and Rheumatoid Arthritis and is quite scared.

Prayers continue for Molly. I will also pray for M. It can be scary waiting for results.

Prayers going up for both these intentions.

God bless.

Thank you both!

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
