Please pray for Grif and Auntie Lulu

Your prayers are needed for two of our FOTM family:

  1. Grif, a former newspaper reporter who joined our team of all-volunteer (read: unpaid) writers in June. See his first post on the infamous Red Hen Restaurant here.
  2. Auntie Lulu, a loyal reader who is uncommonly insightful in her comments and unfailingly generous to other commenters.

Both have been quiet, so I sent them a wellness-check email.

Grif responded with the distressing news that he had a silent stroke some weeks ago. He is being outfitted with a heart monitor today. He writes:

As for FOTM, I do not subscribe to any other blog. This is it. I love this blog. I pray that it continue to prosper with the truth.

Please pray for Grif!!!

In the case of Auntie Lulu, as you know from my post of September 10, she was admitted to ER for kidney stones, some of which remain unbroken. A stint was put in, but it has led to bleeding. The loss of blood is so massive that she feels weakened to the extent that it affects her thinking. I urged her to see a doctor ASAP. Yesterday, she saw her physician’s assistant and a blood test was done to ascertain the amount of blood loss and whether an iron or blood transfusion is warranted. The results will be out today.

Please pray for Grif and Auntie Lulu. Both are devout Christians and genuinely good people.

Thank you and God bless you,

~Eowyn

My prayers being said for both, that they will get the good medical treatment they need and we see them back at FOTM soon.

And isn’t it a shame that Auntie Lulu couldn’t actually see the doctor, but a PA. Okay, prayers up for the both of them. I would think they’ve probably put dear Grif on thinners too and I hope it is not one of them that has had so many problems. So we’ll lift up both of these dear folks to the Lord asking for divine intervention and a healing touch.
Thank you for letting us know. Prayers up!

I am praying for a speedy healing to bring back two treasured members of the FOTM family. I pray Grif’s procedure will put him back in the road he was traveling. For Auntie Lulu, what a sweetheart and sorely missed. I am also praying her tests will prove she too, is back on the road to a healthy recovery. I know the pain and damage kidney stones can do. Since our massive move, to say our internet service is spotty is being generous. I have missed much. I am grateful the Dr. Is keeping an eye out for our members.… Read more »

I’m sending up prayers for healing and recovery for Auntie Lu Lu (I love reading her posts and her shared wisdom). May God heal her body and stop the blood loss. Sending prayers also for Griff and that he can find strength and bearing after having a stroke. Praying in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Leeann

This is the first I’ve heard of Griff, and I hope it’s not the last. Auntie Lulu is of course a treasured person here for a long time, so it’s impossible for me to think of FotM without her daily presence. I will pray for them both, 24/7.

This is not good news. I was wondering why Auntie hadn’t said much. My son had bleeding a lot with his stints earlier this summer too, but this last time when you all prayed for him at the emergency he met a new doctor who placed flexible stints in which are in newer use the profession, and the bleeding and pain are negligible compared to the regular hard stints that most of the doctors have been using. God Bless you Auntie. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray this nightmare is over and you are completely healed- SOON! Griff,… Read more »

I have experience with kidney stones, a lot, and they can be very horrible to deal with. I have written back and forth with Lulu on several occasions and I have always been blessed with the exchange. She is just a wonderful, devoted Christian, who always seems to be able to say the right thing that I need to hear at the time. I will of course be praying for them both, that God will bless them, and also strengthen their bodies, to allow them to get back on track where He needs them to be

I pray that both Auntie Lulu & Grif get healed properly, and soon! I can’t imagine the pain Lulu is going through. And Grif, I hope your condition rapidly improves.

Oh my, Dr. E., THANKS so much for following up on our Auntie and Grif. Who elso but you would do so? I have been absent b/c I’ve had to be out of state to bury/memorialize my mother. I have not checked in very regularly. Dearest Auntie LuLu….chin up and best wishes….my husband has done what you are doing and it is not pleasant, but it is medically manageable and will end at some point and, praise God, you will be OK…..you will have to avoid oxylates forever now……Swiss Chard, spinach….a lot of “super-greens” that are good for you and… Read more »

Much thanks for sympathies! DCG…. I needed that. My mom’s death, besides being emotional/grief for me, has been a 4-state nightmare to encounter/figure out aftermath —and took me all my summer and into now—early fall (CA/MD/FLA/PA) upon which I also had to deal with the unexpected “Holy Jim Canyon Fire” in my community/my employment here in CA. I am still dealing with this b/c we are under “mud-slide” watch in our areas/my school-employment, stripped of flora b/c of the fire—due to expected rains from a Pacific hurricane/torrential rain expected here momentarily. Every day this week I’ve trucked my school work… Read more »

Dear CalGirl: I am ever so sorry to learn about your loss of your mother. I know that no matter how long we have those whom we love, it never seems to be long enough. Beyond that, you and your family seem to be assailed by difficulties beyond anyone’s control. As I am in your prayers, know also that you are in mine. Our God is the god of infinite mercy and comfort. May He hold you in his hands and give you peace. These troubling things–the fires, the work expectations, the necessities of a loved one’s final arrangements–are in… Read more »

Prayers AND HUGS going out… continually. Been out myself with my own and mother’s health problems (neither immediately serious, but very potentially so), a refrigerator dying, and my iMac repeatedly going into a spinning beachball tailspin (looks like it needs a new hard drive). So not online a lot. Booted to a spare drive/OS today… backing up and cloning the hard drive (well, that’s the plan). Tried working off a laptop but it’s all from scratch; no bookmarks, saved docs, etc. And it needed a new battery. “Livin’ on the edge”… Mom showed me her phone bill at her house… Read more »

Rather than write to each of you, my dear friends, individually . . . I send most grateful thanks for all the prayers and good wishes which have been initiated on my behalf. Since I have been feeling so poorly, and thinking about mortality . . . it has come to my mind that when I get to the other side, and have the opportunity to meet and greet each of the wonderful members of the FOTM family–my joy in the mansions of Heaven will be doubly filled due to my association with each and every one of you.

xx00. I hope that every day, you can measurably feel better when you look yourself in the bathroom mirror every morning. When you ask yourself…”Do I feel a little bit better this morning than I did yesterday morning?” I hope your answer is, “YES!” Every little movement “forward” counts!

Dr Eowyn, God Bless you for your righteous spirit, and your willingness to reach out to the lost/sick among the FOTM family. You are truly one in a million.
