Ryan, it's hard to understand God's plan sometimes.....hell.....most times but you have to have faith that His plan is for the best. You may not understand it but trust in God. Learn as much from every life experience that you can and allow it to make you a better person. That is essentially the ONLY thing that's up to you and in your control.

That said, I hope she makes it through this OK and you get things back to "normal" as soon as possible. If you need anything, you know where to turn.

Go, I will definitely put your mother in my prayers, as well as you and your entire family. Make sure that you use your strength to magnify the power of the prayers that you will receive from all of your go-bengals family. Remember, seek and you shall find, ask and it shall be given to you. God Bless, my friend!!

Some may know from another thread my mother is in the hospital, she's 57. Had double pnmonia(sp?) Got somewhat better. And in the last 24 hours took a turn for the worse.

They recommended I didn't come visit the past two weeks to avoid myself getting sick or taking germs home to my two boys, but now things are really bad. Blood oxygen level is down to mid eighties again, she strapped to a device that has her completely inclosed like probong her moving her muscles and things. And rotates her occasionally. I can't really even see her. Since she is strapped in this thing.

Things are very bad. Nurses are giving me the "we are doing everything we can" talks.

I was not prepared for this.

I need any prayers I can get. She doesn't deserve this. She watched my boys, they loved every minute with her. She taught them more than my wife and I had a chance to working retail hours, etc.
Its not fair. I've been a pretty terrible person most of my life, she's probably the nicest most moral person I know.

Why would God take away someone that makes the world better?

My whole family needs her. She keeps us all together. She made us all better people.
[b][/quote]Ryan I lost my Dad a week and a half ago after a lenghty illness that he had. He also lost his wife this past July. I know how you feel. But rest assured I will have a number of masses said for her immediately. Please send me her name. My e mail is kaizzo4@aol.com. I will pray for her immediately. I always pray when I drive and I am about to go out. I will say a rosary for her and pray for her tomorrow morning at mass. I have been out of work for the past 5 1/2 months and attend daily mass. I will pray as hard as I can for her. [/b]

Ryan my mother sent me this e-mail today. I thought of you when I received it, hope it helps.

Psalm 55:22 --- you really need to read this
'Friends are God's way of taking care of us.'

This was written by a Metro Denver Hospice Physician:

I was driving home from a meeting this evening about 5, stuck in traffic on Colorado Blvd., and the car started to choke and splutter and die - I barely managed to coast , cursing, into a gas station, glad only that I would not be blocking traffic and would have a somewhat warm spot to wait for the tow truck. It wouldn't even turn over. Before I could make the call, I saw a woman walking out of the quickie mart building, and it looked like she slipped on some ice and fell into a gas pump, so I got out to see if she was okay
When I got there, it looked more like she had been overcome by sobs than that she had fallen; she was a young woman who looked really haggard with dark circles under her eyes. She dropped something as I helped her up, and I picked it up to give it to her. It was a nickel.

At that moment, everything came into focus for me: the crying woman, the ancient Suburban crammed full of stuff with 3 kids in the back (1 in a car seat), and the gas pump reading $4.95.

I asked her if she was okay and if she needed help, and she just kept saying 'I don't want my kids to see me crying! ,' so we stood on the other side of the pump from her car. She said she was driving to California and that things were very hard for her right now. So I asked, 'And you were praying?' That made her back away from me a little, but I assured her I was not a crazy person and said, 'He heard you, and He sent me.'

I took out my card and swiped it through the card reader on the pump so she could fill up her car completely, and while it was fueling, walked to the next door McDonald's and bought 2 big bags of food, some gift certificates for more, and a big cup of coffee. She gave the food to the kids in the car, who attacked it like wolves, and we stood by the pump eating fries and talking a little.

She told me her name, and that she lived in Kansas City . Her boyfriend left 2 months ago and she had not been able to make ends meet. She knew she wouldn't have money to pay rent Jan. 1, and finally, in desperation, had called her parents, with whom she had not spok en in about 5 years. They lived in California and said she could come live with them and try to get on her feet there.

So she packed up everything she owned in the car. She told the kids they were going to California for Christmas, but not that they were going to live there.
I gave her my gloves, a little hug and said a quick prayer with her for safety on the road. As I was walking over to my car, she said, 'So, are you like an angel or something?'

This definitely made me cry. I said, 'Sweetie, at this time of year angels are really busy, so sometimes God uses regular people.'

It was so incredible to be a part of someone else's miracle. And of course, you guessed it, when I got in my car it started right away and got me home with no problem. I'll put it in the shop tomorrow to check, but I suspect the mechanic won't find anything wrong.

Sometimes the angels fly close enough to you that you can hear the flutter of their wings...

Psalms 55:22 ' Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee. He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.'

My sincerest sympathy to you and my prayers to your mother and family. And you.
I am stopping by All Saints tomorrow after work for prayers and meditations for other friends and loved ones and you
and your family will be definitely mentioned prominently.
Words are often hard to come by but I know you feel the love and concern from everyone on here, many like myself a
friend you have never met.
May God Bless you, sir, and your mother.

I'll say a prayer or three for your mom. In the meantime, best of luck and health to your mom. Hopefully she'll pull through it all soon.
