Needing some prayers

Everyone needs a miracle every now and then, and I need one now. My youngest daughter (2 years old) was diagnosed with vesicoureteral reflux this afternoon. It is by no means good, but can have 5 different stages. It is a disease which affects the kidneys. We will be going shortly to do more test to see how bad it is, but hopefully it is a lower stage so it can just be treated with medicine and then maybe she will grow out of it. Right now I don’t even want to think about it being a stage 5 because that involves possible kidney transplant and that would just kill me seeing my little girl suffer that much. If everyone would just shoot a little prayer up to the Big Man, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks everyone

Our prayers are with you and your daughter.

THINK ONLY GOOD THOUGHTS!

I know where you are. I’ve been where you are. My oldest son grew up with FSGS and was a kidney transplant recipient. He is now a high school teacher!

The Big Carpenter in the sky will take care of you. I know it!

And now, SO DO YOU!

Remember: THINK ONLY GOOD THOUGHTS!

As a father of 4 sons and pepe of 2 you know I’ll pray for you even if you’re a stranger (of sorts). Better yet, I will request a group of nuns to pray for your daughter… our local House of Prayers here in S NH. They are powerful. When my father was facing death at 84 (good years), my 5 bros and 3 sis didn’t want to face his end so I asked the good sisters to keep him in their prayers… He went home that same day! I told my siblings and they agreed.Dad had spent a month in ICU and was home when he passed. The good nuns will pray for the best.
Know that any descent human will keep your daughter in their prayers whether they be Christian, Jew, Muslim, Buddhist,Hindu or whatever!

My thoughts and prayers are with your daughter and your family. I think kids handle these things better than us adults do. Always remember how much God loves you and your daughter!
