Good Evening All,
We need to raise the volume for this good man for whom Pete Sweeney asks for our prayers. In August of 2014, we had Edmund Donovan, now just 49 years old, in our prayers for a heart condition that had to be addressed at that time. Peter noted that at the time, the heart problem was just one of the health issues that Ed and his Family were dealing with. Ed has been battling Brain Lesions for over ten years. The Doctors have been able to remove some of the lesions but not all which has left Ed with constant pain and vision issues besides his suffering from High Blood Pressure.
Today, Peter received an email from, as Peter says, his understandingly shaken Classmate, 1964, Andrew Joyce. Andrew is Ed’s Father-in-Law, Andrew is married to Peters’ First Cousin, Cathy and their Daughter, Valerie is Peter’s God Child and Ed’s Wife.
Sadly, Ed needs our prayers today more than ever. Below is Andrew’s email to Peter this morning.
” Edmund has been in Robert Wood Johnson New Brunswick for a week now. He was placed in ICU last night. He has fluid, “bleeding?” on his spinal chord. Physicians believe it is somehow related to brain surgeries of many years ago when they did remove several bleeders but left others due to extreme risk involved.”
” He has some mobility issues on the left side.. To complicate matters, Edmund now has pneumonia. Oh boy!! He will need extensive rehab. They have tabled a “gamma knife” procedure due to risk it would leave him a quadriplegic. I’ll keep you updated as best I can. This is way over my head. “
” Please pray for everyone involved here. What can I say? Devastating news. He is only 49!!! “
Please raise the volume for Ed, his Wife, Valerie, Andrew, Cathy, Peter and their Families during this very difficult time. We pray that the hand of God guides the Doctors care and decisions. We pray that Ed’s pain may be lessened. We pray that Ed, Valerie and their Family feel God’s love, healing and strength throughout this so difficult time. Thank you Peter. Thank you all. God Bless.
