Prayers need for my Dad

Prayers need for my Dad - 04/01/11 02:12 PM

Again,
I ask for your prayers. My father (name is Ed) just became very ill with hemoptysis (coughing up blood). He is in surgery at this moment. It is is bronchoscopy so may not answer all the questions but will hopefully stop the bleeding. He is a very good man. I am appreciative to all who read this and think of him in prayer. He is devoted to the Blessed Mother, so perhaps you could implore her intercession.
Thank you and God Bless You,
Sharon

Prayers for Ed, the father of our sister, Sharon, that the Unmercenary Physicians Cosmas & Damien guide his doctors in the diagnosis and efficacious treatment of his illness, that he recover quickly and without complication, and that God grant him many years in health, happiness, and the love of his family.

Prayers to the most holy Mother of our God, the ever virgin Mary, for her devoted child, Ed...that she will intercede on behalf of his health crisis to her Son, our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
May Ed be kept under the protective veil of Our Lady today, tomorrow, and all days, bringing him to full recovery.
May she keep our friend and poster Sharon comforted in the knowledge that she is with her in these difficult days of trial.
AMEN.

...just an update. The results are not back, but the bronchoscopy looked very, very suspicious for cancer. I was (and still am) praying it was due to an infection because he was on prednisone for hypersensitivity pneumonitis (allergic reaction in his lungs). I am the only doctor in the family so I must prepare everyone and explain things to them. But in reality...only God can answer the question they and I have. It is not the right time for him, he has a very young son who has acute problems. Anyway...my hope is fading and I have to find a way to be strong. But this is not about my grief...it is about my father. I pray God be gentle, strengthen him and love him.
Thank you for your prayers
Sharon

NEWS...BIOPSIES ARE NEGATIVE. All the doctors were sure that this was a cancer. It is unlikely to be. I have been praying for the intercession of Blessed Mother, and also St. John Paul II. I cannot thank you all enough for your prayers. I was all but hopeless. I believe it is a miracle. Thank you all so much, God Bless
