Molly Update

The doctors have discovered that Molly has Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia otherwise known as Osler-Weber Rendu Syndrome. With Molly, this manifests itself in Pulmonary Hypertension which is very rare.

Her family is devastated at this new news, although this doesn't change much immediately for Molly.

She did a CPAP trial and handled it well. She will get a Trach and G Tube in on Monday and they are talking about moving her, eventually, to rehab to help her regain skills lost by the brain damage she's suffered.

Please continue to pray for Molly and her family as they endure this suffering.

I read this news on her caringbridge page this morning. Sometimes 'answers' do not provide a cure ... but in knowing the reason behind the sudden illness there is some comfort. Mostly, though, in my experience, having answers doesn't ease the pain and suffering. Hopefully it will provide the doctors with some direction. That is my prayer for them today.

I will offer my Mass this morning for this family and their intentions. Almighty God knows the whys and wherefores, and He will permit or ordain the very best for His dearly-beloved.

Thanks so much.

"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
