Good Evening All,

With a heavy heart, I share these prayer requests from Joe Quinn.

We pray for Glenn, one of God’s littlest Angels, an infant who was called home to God’s Eternal Embrace.

We pray for Glenn’s Parents and two Sisters as they suffer the pain of this great loss. We pray that they will find peace in the sure knowledge that he is at peace in God’s love and that they were Blessed to have Glenn in their lives. Words fail at a time like this.

We pray too for Mary and Joseph. This Family with such beautiful names have just learned that they are facing a very difficult pregnancy. We pray that God”s love gives them the strength and trust in God to bring them through this difficult time and the challenges that may lie ahead.

Thank you. God Bless.

Good Evening All,

Good news shared from Mike McEneney and thanks to all of you from Fellow Jasper, Ernie Dejak ’71 who was in our prayers last week as he went in Hospital for Hip Replacement Surgery. From Ernie:

“Got home this afternoon. Getting around with a walker. Every thing went extremely well. They had me walking one hour after I woke up. All the prayers helped. Thank you. Please let the community know.”

Thank you. God Bless.

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) updates on Jim

2016-Feb-03

Good Morning All,

 
Jim Smith’s operation was done last Friday. It was not a simple procedure and a follow up Pacemaker implant may be necessary but all went well. Jim has been up for several hours at a time each day. Kathleen and their daughters have been with Jim and he is doing well particularly considering the procedure. A couple of Jaspers have visited but not stayed long and that is a good thing as Jim heals. Rehab is being set up and will hopefully be near home. Today the decision will be made as to the Pacemaker.Thanks to one of our Alumni Board members and a dear friend, a visit to Jim by her Sister, a truly gracious and capable professional, a Nurse of some repute, she was able to visit with Jim on behalf of all of us. Thank you so much Susan. Please keep the volume up for Jim. You cannot keep a good man down and in my heart Jim is one of the best, itching to get going again. We pray for his continued and complete recovery. We his friends are grateful to you for your prayers. His family thanks each of you for your prayers and good thoughts. Thank you. God Bless. I will keep you posted.

Good Afternoon Phil,

I bring good news that this group and others assisted in doing.

Mom’s heart rate which by late Sunday was elevated and racing in atrial fibrillation consistently between 90 to 130 beats a minute and higher has stabilized.

As of late last night the heart rate was stabilized in the 80s.

This is different that what she entered in for with a slow heart beat. Cardiologist still attempting to determine what to do.

If this continues , she will be moved to Wartburg Rehab where she has an assisted living apartment later today or over the weekend.

Amazing,since Mom is 94 + and never had a heart problem/medication only ones she take is her prescribed eye drops , a high blood pressure pill, vitamins and a low dose aspirin.

So being hospitalized and medicated is a strange thing to her.

The local parish was great as Fr, Gus and Sister Florence Mallon stopped by frequently to pray.

Thanks again.

Praying for all our friend especially Jim Smith today.

You are all amazing!!!!

Tom
