    Need some prayers

    I just found out Friday that my Mom is in the hospital with diverticulitis. I've never been one much for organized religion but my parents are. She has gotten worse this weekend and it looks like they will need to do some surgery. So any thoughts or prayers would be much appreciated. It also seems that my grandmother is on her way out and most likely won't make it through the new year. I'm almost scared to answer the phone now and get more bad news.
    Now, Hank, touch your throat. That tube you feel is your trachea. Think of it as your handle. That thing your thumb is on is your carotid artery. Think of it as your button. I want you to grab the handle, push the button.

    wishing the best, Randy

    I was going to post a link to that thread, but the SG search results for "bullsh|t" were too numerous

    sometimes you have to think outside the box to get inside the box .

    Prayers heading your way. I am hopefully finished with a similar bout of Diverticulitis that started ~1 1/2 years ago. Several operations and episodes that almost killed me a few times. Hopefully as soon as I recoup from this last operation ~2 weeks ago and I can start to get back to normal. Not fun.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.

    Luck is where preparation meets opportunity - Seneca

    "Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'" - Isaac Asimov

    It is my ambition to say in ten sentences what others say in a whole book. - Friedrich Nietzsche
