      Hi All,



      Right now I am really suffering from gal bladder/kidney problems. Gal
      stones, kidney stones and liver trouble. I have been sick all week and
      pretty miserable. The doctor said I have to be very strict with my diet
      now. No meat, dairy, or sugar for a week and only apples, hot lemon, raw
      organic apple juice, beets, pears, and cucumbers. The doctor said I can’t
      have my gal bladder taken out because my liver is so bad (35 years as a
      hairdresser from chemicals) and surgery would most likely kill me. The
      Lupus and borderline diabetes also complicates my system. Of course the
      doctors make sure to tell you NO STRESS! Like that is possible! So, your
      prayers would be appreciated.



      As far as an update on Johnathan: He has not moved in with the guy he met
      online so far. His job in Seattle area was renewed so he is staying put.
      His ‘boyfriend’ was very disappointed but they plan to have my son fly
      down in July to visit and meet each other for the first time. So, I am
      thankful they are just meeting first. My son still hopes the guy will end
      up moving to his area instead of he moving to Arkansas. This is for
      several reasons. One, because my son loves his job in Seattle and wants to
      stay there and Two, it looks like he might have problems with this guys
      parents. The young man he is in love with wants to go to med school in
      the area my son lives at. Well, I know all too well the riggers of med
      school having put my husband through both Chiropractic college and Medical
      school. They would not see each other very much. Johnathan’s boyfriend
      works as a phlebotomist right now in a Baptist hospital. His parents are
      Baptist and only his mom knows about him being gay. She does not want the
      father to know. She is not happy about her son being gay but because some
      of her son’s friends convinced her that this ‘Prayers for Bobby’ suicide
      thing could happen if she didn’t accept her son’s homosexuality, she is
      accepting it. Her son has psychotic depression at times and is on meds
      for it and so this mom worries about her son (understandable, as I worry
      about my son and his naivety from his brain damage ). The mom sent my son
      a very intimidating email asking him if he has been tested for AIDS and
      how many partners he has had. Then she tells him that if he ever hurts her
      son, she will beat the crap out of him.” I told my son and his boyfriend
      that I would be happy to have his mom write me. I would like to tell her
      about my book and our story, but right now they are trying to keep us moms
      apart. I have told my son I will not interfere unless I saw a grave danger
      to him. Johnathan appreciated that I respected him as an adult. So, we
      will see where this goes. I want to thank all of you who have prayed for
      this situation. You are a blessing to me.



      My daughter just called and I updated her on her brothers. She worries
      about Johnathan and prays for him often. My oldest son is going through a
      serious court case right now and so all my kids have their various
      problems to deal with. My daughter just became a foster mom yesterday.
      There was an emergency and the foster care program in San Antonio asked
      her to take twin, one month old, black baby boys for two weeks. She
      eventually hopes to adopt a foster baby girl by becoming a foster parent
      to a very young girl. The twin babies are crack/heroine babies and cried
      all night. She and her husband are exhausted and her two teenage sons are
      not thrilled by this. My sister in Las Vegas called and is exhausted from
      caring for her daughters 3 little girls (her daughter was on meyth). So I
      invited my sister to come visit me for a while and let her daughter figure
      out how to handle her own problems. My sister has had 4 back surgeries
      and is a mess and cannot do this anymore. She loves to help out and does
      not always know how to say No to her daughter. My sister finally called
      and said she will come see me in March for two weeks. So, life is never
      boring.

        Dear Bridget,

        Thanks for keeping us updated about your health and family issues, especially around Johnathan. You, and they, are in my prayers.

        Please pray for me also. I'm sorry that I haven't been as candid as I should be�to�the membership here, but I suffered a heart attack on January 9th.�Fortunately, I got immediate help with catherization and stenting; and, as a result, have not suffered any scarring on my heart muscles. However, arterial damage inevitably occurred, and am continuing on a "heart smart" diet that I was already on, and going to rehab�for the next 3 months.

        I would say that this is�partly why I haven't been as consistently active�as�I�have been in the past, and regretfully haven't answered many of�members' posts. But, as long as I stay with the cardiac program that my doctor and the specialists have me on, I do have a green light from them to continue functioning at the capacity that I was at before the heart attack.���

        Blessings,

        Tom

            Gal stones, kidney stones and liver trouble. I have been sick all
            week and pretty miserable. The doctor said I have to be very strict
            with my diet now. No meat, dairy, or sugar for a week and only
            apples, hot lemon, raw organic apple juice, beets, pears, and
            cucumbers. The doctor said I can't have my gal bladder taken out
            because my liver is so bad (35 years as a hairdresser from chemicals)
            and surgery would most likely kill me. The Lupus and borderline
            diabetes also complicates my system. Of course the doctors make sure
            to tell you NO STRESS! Like that is possible! So, your prayers would
            be appreciated.

            still hopes the guy will end up moving to his area instead of he

            loves his job in Seattle and wants to stay there and Two, it looks
            like he might have problems with this guys parents. The young man he
            is in love with wants to go to med school in the area my son lives at.
            Well, I know all too well the riggers of med school having put my
            husband through both Chiropractic college and Medical school. They
            would not see each other very much. Johnathan's boyfriend works as a

            suicide thing could happen if she didn't accept her son's
            homosexuality, she is accepting it. Her son has psychotic depression
            at times and is on meds for it and so this mom worries about her son
            (understandable, as I worry about my son and his naivety from his
            brain damage ). The mom sent my son a very intimidating email asking
            him if he has been tested for AIDS and how many partners he has had.
            Then she tells him that if he ever hurts her son, she will beat the
            crap out of him." I told my son and his boyfriend that I would be
            happy to have his mom write me. I would like to tell her about my book
            and our story, but right now they are trying to keep us moms apart. I
            have told my son I will not interfere unless I saw a grave danger to
            > him. Johnathan appreciated that I respected him as an adult. So,
            we will see where this goes. I want to thank all of you who have
            prayed for this situation. You are a blessing to me.

            worries about Johnathan and prays for him often. My oldest son is
            going through a serious court case right now and so all my kids have
            their various problems to deal with. My daughter just became a foster
            mom yesterday. There was an emergency and the foster care program in
            San Antonio asked her to take twin, one month old, black baby boys for
            two weeks. She eventually hopes to adopt a foster baby girl by
            becoming a foster parent to a very young girl. The twin babies are
            crack/heroine babies and cried all night. She and her husband are
            exhausted and her two teenage sons are not thrilled by this. My sister
            in Las Vegas called and is exhausted from caring for her daughters 3
            little girls (her daughter was on meyth). So I invited my sister to
            come visit me for a while and let her daughter figure out how to
            handle her own problems. My sister has had 4 back surgeries and is a
            mess and
            > cannot do this anymore. She loves to help out and does not always
            know how to say No to her daughter. My sister finally called and said
            she will come see me in March for two weeks. So, life is never boring.
