PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) prays for Ken

2019-Feb-10

Good Afternoon All,

I have heard from Ken Kelly’s Friend, Jim Bardmore, with an update on Ken Kelly. Ken has had a second operation as a result of his acute Diabetes condition. Madeline has just shared that Ken’s leg was amputated 3 inches below the knee. Ken is doing the best he can for now. He is resting comfortably at Kessler Institute in Saddle Brook, N.J. It is expected at this time that he will probably remain at Kessler for a few weeks. Madeline has shared that once Ken’s routine is set, he can have visitors. Ken does not have a phone yet. Knowing Ken, once he gets a phone he will be making follow up calls to Company recruiters for the Career Fair. We pray that he is up to that real soon. Please keep Ken and Madeline in your prayers. We pray for a full recovery. We pray that the MDs get the Diabetes and its’ side problems under control and get this smiling and committed Jasper on the phones once again. Ken has always answered our call for prayers for others with determination and love. We offer up the same for Ken. As Jim and Madeline keep me posted, I will do the same for you. Thank you from Ken, Madeline and their Family for your prayers. Much appreciated. Please raise the volume for this good man. Thank you. God Bless.

Good Evening All,

Please raise the volume for this precious little tyke, Mike’s 2 year old Great Grand Daughter, Abigail Catherine. She has been hospitalized with an unexplained very high fever. We pray for Abigail Catherine, and her parents. We pray the Doctors Discover the cause of Abigail Catherine’s fever and are able to quickly bring it under control, free of complications. Please keep the volume up.

We pray also for Tom, the Son of Mike’s good Friend, the late Judge Bob Sise. Tom, an attorney in Amsterdam, N.Y. is suffering from symptoms of early Alzheimers. Tom has had to give up the practice of law and his health is declining as well. Please keep Tom and his Family in your prayers.

Thank you All. God Bless.

Good Morning All,

A prayer of thanks will not be remiss as Mike McEneney shares the good news that Great Grand Daughter, Abigail Catherine, is back home. It was found that she had the Flu and an upper respitory infection, common to young Children, and causes high fevers. While she still has a fever, it is much closer to normal and with continued medication, it is hoped that both infections will be cleared up. She is eating and drinking fluids again and no doubt sharing her precious smile once more. Her Parents thank you for your prayers and good wishes as do Abigail Catherine’s Great Grand Parents, Mike and Cathie. Thank you. God Bless.

Her lungs are not completely clear and she is on Oxygen, there is improvement. She will be closely monitored and in a few weeks, certain tests will be repeated. Mike thanks you all for your prayers and kind thoughts. We continue to pray for Cathie’s complete recovery free of complications. Please keep the volume up for this good woman.

Please keep your prayers up as well for the following folks who are so thankful for your kindness and prayers.

Lisa Hatfield, Boise, Idaho, who is doing better, her Remission Rate looks more promising.

Ken Kelly, we continue to pray that no further surgery is necessary due to his diabetes complications.

I wonder if you could ask our alum to send up a large volume of prayers for Ken Kelly ‘54. He is a good friend and a loyal Jasper. He is in hospital now facing some serious surgery.
