I want to praise God that we had a good weekend doing family things (even though the dc whinged far too much). We've been without a pastor for 18 months already.......the weekly church prayer meeting (ie for the needs of the church collectively) is very poorly attending - we need some umph, a prophet would be nice too???

hello everyone
god is truly wonderful. I came onto this thread just now to ask for prayers for my grandad and also the whole family as we support him in his struggle with motor neurone disease. he is struggling now and it is so hard. I have prayed tonight and know god is there holding his hand but it is hard.
anyway, of course we all know how wonderful god is, but i wonder if he didn't direct me to this thread tonight to speak to suzy. my ds1 has minimal change nephrotic syndrome, he often leaks protein and has been hospitalised several times but the condition is currently stable. I wonder if your dnephew has something similar? I know some very good sites, my fave is kidcomm email group, please feel free to cat me/start a new thread/ask on here if you have any questions I can help with as well. I am praying for his speedy recovery and remission.

Welcome Morocco, a fabulous godincidence to direct you to Sooz! Praying for your Grandad and your family.

CG - praying for a prophet to come your way soon! We had 2 years of 'interregnum'(?) when our old vicar left. Now we have the most wonderful vicar (not that our old vicar wasn't great too!), but current vicar injects such life and enthusiasm (and humour) to the church. Praying God will guide your prophet to you soon.

Thanks CD for round up, you are too good to us!

Happy Monday everyone!!

CaptainDippy Mon 09-Jul-07 08:27:53

Lots of prayers for your Grandad for your whole family, it must be tearing you all apart to have to watch him suffering so. {{{{hugs}}} Incredible God-incidence about Sooz's DNephew & your DS1 .... wow - that has really blown me away - God is just brilliant, isn't he!!?

Morocco - welcome and thank you very much for your support, my dneph indeed has nephrotic something or other! (bless my technical terms)

He has settled with his treatment and is carrying on his recovery at home after 10 days in hospital, but he was double his size bless him, although his limbs are still ballooned! his parents have been so worried. "God please protect them" thank you!

I'm so sorry to hear of your dgrandad with 'MND' another god-incidence, I had a close friend who lost her dad this way, I pray also for god to hold him and guide him Is he still eating ok?

Thank you Morocco

morocco Mon 09-Jul-07 13:58:44

thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. another coincidence suzy! my grandad is not doing too well really, as is expected I suppose. I saw him this weekend and his voice is starting to go and he has only the smallest movement now in one hand. it is very very sad I need lots of prayers to help me deal with issues around his care and organising things to make life more comfortable for him, it would be much appreciated. I am trying to pass my worries up to God.
re nephrotic syndrome, it could be worth knowing, and you will know if it is appropriate to pass this information to the parents, that it very often recurs as the medication is reduced. I don't say this to worry you, they will just increase the meds again if it happens, but it could be worth knowing. it is also worth making sure your dneph is treated by a paediatric nephrologist (major hospitals) rather than by a paediatrician consulting with a paediatric nephrologist. if it is nephrotic syndrome of some kind, you and your family are more than welcome to email me/phone any time, I will pass on my details by email if you are interested. the swelling is horrible, isn't it, poor lambs. did he need any albumin/iv antibiotics? how was it initially diagnosed? my email is j il le ades at
h o t mail dot com (take all spaces out obviously!!)
sorry to crash the thread!

CaptainDippy Mon 09-Jul-07 19:40:21

You're not crashing morocco!! You are v.v.v.welcome here!! It must be so completely devastating to have to watch your Grandad go through this. I am so sorry that you & your family have to bear witness to his deterioration. It is an awful & shocking illness. Praying for your Grandad & for you all .... Please do keep posting ..... & tell us a bit more about yourself too - we're all friends here!!

I'm CaptainDippy, nearly 25, DH 27, DD's 3.5yrs, 2.2 yrs, 10 weeks (completely mental me!!) Super!

Chinese take-away tonight - yum - and the best thing about it is .... WE'RE NOT PAYING!!

CaptainCaveman Mon 09-Jul-07 20:02:15

How so CD, are you stealing the takeaway!!!??

Always welcome here Morocco - I am 34, dh is 39 and ds is 3.2. We live in Nottingham

tomorrow is our 8 year wedding anniversary!! Where did that time go?!

I have an interview a week tomorrow, its for an add-on to my current role, more strategic though. I'd love to take the role on and would really appreciate your prayers as I prepare for this over the next week.

How's everyone else today?

morocco Mon 09-Jul-07 20:18:08

better introduce myself then lol! I'm 34, live in bolton with dh, ds1, 4 (minimal change nephrotic syndrome), ds2 3 and dd1 16 weeks (so we just missed meeting on the antenatal threads capt!). I only recently started my journey with christ, about 2 years ago, and am still a beginner. I'm hoping to go on an alpha course with the church in sept, it's hard finding the time in the evenings, as you know

Tiggerish Mon 09-Jul-07 20:33:33

I hope I'm not intruding - I've not been on any of your threads before.

I was wondering if you could say a prayer for me tomorrow? I am having spinal surgery and am getting very anxious about it all. It shouldn't be anything too major (micro-discectomy) but I can't help worrying about the possible complications.

CarGirl Mon 09-Jul-07 20:54:01

DutchOma Mon 09-Jul-07 21:56:57

Most certainly Tiggerish. What time? Let us know how you get on. When will you be out of hospital?

Notquitegrownup Mon 09-Jul-07 22:19:29

I'm emailing you now, Cargirl.

Praying for you tomorrow, Tiggerish.

Hi Morrocco and welcome! Great to have you on board! Special prayers for your Grandfather to know peace in the midst of this awful illness, and for you in finding suitable care for him.

In haste. God bless all.

Tiggerish Mon 09-Jul-07 22:25:48
