Prayers Urgently Needed! Thanks!

I just received this update tonight concerning my dear friend Patti. A friend of hers from her church entered this into the Caring Bridge Journal for Patti tonight.

When I saw Patti this afternoon around 2p.m., she was putting on a strong face. I think all the pain is wearing her down. She is such a positive person, so to hear the following broke my heart. Please read and pray fervently. Thanks!

Hello everyone, I need to update everybody on what is going on with our Patti.
Patti has been in the hospital since last night, she is running a fever and has overwhelming pain, she says that from 1 to 10 it is a 15. The only thing they can give her is morphine and it has not help her at all. She also suspects there is something wrong with her kidneys, has pain especially when she goes to the bathroom. She describes the abdomen pain as much worse than last year's episode when she ended up in surgery, there is a strong possibility that she'll end up in surgery again. She is suffering and told me she is ready to give up. I said to her that she has a lot of work left to do for The Lord, many people to help and inspire with her beautiful, bright light.
She is asking all of you to pray for her very strongly,
especially for the pain to go away or at least to be less.
I don't like to see her cry because she is such a happy , joyful lady, and to see and hear the desperation in her voice and not be able to help her is horrible. I love her like the sister I never had and consider her an angel sent from God to rescue me at a very sad time in my life.
Again, please pray for her, ask your friends and loved ones to do the same, I'll update you as soon as we know what is wrong.


May God bless you and keep you safe,
Raisa

I prayed for her this morning and will continue to do so.

It's so hard to watch someone you care about suffer. I'm leaving tomorrow after church to go to Nashville to see my friend, Beth, who has MS.

Hugs!

I am so sorry to hear this, too, and I will also pray. I remember the picture of Patti that you shared a while back, and it makes me so sad to hear of this beautiful lady suffering so much....

Dear Pam,
Just to let you know,this may be my last comment and posting. I just want to inform you that yesterdays posting on my blog site may be my last. For some reason, Blogspot has all of a sudden declared by blog as Spam (they claim that someone reported it as such), so as a result they are requiring me to type in word identification every time I want to post, and when I do, it makes me type it in about five times and then screws up my post so that I have to re do it and then go through the hassle of retyping the word identification all over again. I have been trying to contact blogspot directly get that word identification removed. If it isn't removed by Friday, I will be deleting my blog entirely and will no longer do any blogging.

I've been out of town so I'm playing "catch up" with my blog reading. I was surprised to see you haven't posted anything while I was gone. Are you okay? Come out, come out, whereever you are.

I'm still praying for Patti.

Hugs!

We will be praying for her and for God to take away her pain if it is His will for her and if not to give her the grace to bear it. May God bless her and lift her up. connie from Texas
