Please say some prayers for Hibernian, Brian Sweeney's Dad. He has some health issues and is facing surgery. He has had it rough these past six months. May the Risen Lord bring him good health. God bless
To all of you who are offering prayers and good wishes for my father - Thank you, he is HOME and very, very happy to be home! He has a good aftercare plan and my mom has learned to give injections! His breathing is stable with oxygen and he is able to walk a bit. We are hoping for continued healing and strength for him. A heart of thanks to each of you from my father and our whole family. I believe his recovery is because of your prayers and energy - you shifted everything for him and us. We are grateful to you and will keep you in our hearts, thoughts, and prayers. HAPPY EASTER!
Toledo Irishman, John Mackin is in the hospital for tests. Please pray that he gets good results and is back home soon. God bless
Please add Carrie & Hal, and their families. to your prayers. Carrie is in ICU at a Columbus hospital. Please pray for a complete recovery.
Please pray for Peggy's soul and for her family and friends. Peggy Halloran Scherting passed away today. She has had cystic fibrosis all of her life, and has endured many challenges. She is Jim Halloran's daughter. Jim, his family and friends got the green carnations sales going for CF, many years ago. Peggy was married to John Mohr's nephew David Scherting,
Please pray for K.W. She is being tested for Leukemia or Lymphoma.
Please keep Dan MacDonald in your prayers. He has been hospitalized in Jacksonville, Fla.
for over a week with several serious medical problems and is not doing well..Thank you.
To all of you who are offering prayers and good wishes for my father - Thank you. Your prayers are definitely working! I can't believe the response and am deeply humbled by it. I am grateful to each of you for your generosity of spirit. Within hours of your responses new tests were ordered and things began to change for my dad! The doctors discovered a blood clot in his lung that may account for his inability to absorb the oxygen he is on. He is taking blood thinners now and we are waiting to see if this helps. A second oncologist reviewed his tests and thinks that chemo is not called for now. These two developments are big – I believe they are a direct result of your prayers. My mother and I, and all Tim's family, are grateful to each and every one of you. I hope you will continue to keep my father in your prayers – you are all in ours. Thank you.
After being Cancer free for 8 years, she has metatastic cancer in the lining of one kidney plus at least two lymph glands and possibly more. Good news is it’s not in her bones, blood, or any other organs at this point. She will need to undergo Chemo therapy for 4 to 6 months at The James in OSU. She would have it here with Kellie Cawley, but has been accepted into a clinical trial at OSU that offers an additional medicine. Her oncologist at the James is one of the leading guys and specializes only in the cancer type she has.
It is very serious BUT her doctor thinks the prognosis is favorable due to her overall health, relatively young age (64) and her great attitude. The goal is to put the cancer in remission. We have a close friend in California who had the same exact cancer and has been in remission for 9 years and counting, so prayers are welcome!
I am trying to get people all over the US plus Ireland and Australia to pray for Susan. Worked 8 years ago when she had the 17 hour operation.
Her surgeon from the James, Dr Pohar, will also stay involved this time. At any rate, we will be busy, might not see me for awhile until we get through this. I have a friend who is a Priest and Vicar General of the Diocese of Arlington and he is getting a whole convent to pray for her.
Please relay this news to our own AOH brotherhood as well. This a new cancer but it is the same type of cancer that was in her bladder originally. Please say a liitle prayer! Thanks so much.
Slan Abhaile, Pete Corcoran
Here is the latest from Nicole Cassidy about her brother, Jeffrey Creech. Please continue to pray for Jeffrey and the family.
Jeffrey is not eating or drinking at the hospital and is still completely out of it despite the fact that the anesthesia has worn off. I hate to ask everyone again for prayers for him but it looks like I have to ask you all again to pray for him. You have worked miracles in the past, let's see if our prayers can get him to snap out of it and to start eating and drinking.
