I don't usually do two prayer posts
in a row.
I usually reserve them for Sundays.
asked me to post this 
and ask for prayers for her sister,
This is the only picture I could find of her
on Anne's blog.
Mary is in the Jackie O sunglasses,
Anne is on one side and her Mom is on the other.

I am sending you a copy of the 
email she sent me.

Hello my sweet friend! You are so kind posting about all those in need of prayer. We are praying but I want to ask if you would please add my sister Mary.

She has been plagued with heart problems. She had a blood clot behind her knee. She went to the ER. They sent her home. The next day my niece Karla called an ambulance. She was unable to walk. She has been in the hospital since early this week.

Today my niece said they think the blood clot moved into her chest and she will need a procedure. They are preparing her for it and will do it at 7:30 A.M. tomorrow.

She is the only sister I have left. We have two brothers but my sister and I are so very close. She is 5 years older than me.  She is only on Medicare as she cannot afford her insurance since she retired.

I am so worried about her. Please pray and please pass it on for others to pray.

Thank you so much for the prayers
and good thoughts and best wishes.
I know that Anne & Mary
are both very grateful.
Posting this Monday night
and I will be at the VA in the morning.

The blood clot is not lodged in her chest.
They will let her go home in a couple of days
and they think the blood clot will dissolve
over time.
Please pray that is the case.  Thanks.

Add one more to the prayer list-
just got this from my friend, Jettie:

I am asking for prayer for one of my school mates, her husband died unexpectedly last night, her name is Glenda Gaines, and she is planning his service as I type this. We never know what tomorrow brings.

Thank you Diana! You are a true blessing to me. I appreciate all the prayers. My niece says my sister is doing so much better. It is a bad time because my hubby has to be at work due to his co worker is expecting a new baby any day and he will be in and out of the office during the month of August. I watch my lil great grand
boy Harrison two days a week too. I really want to be able to go visit her. We are 120 miles apart. Thank you again.
I will be praying for all the prayer requests you have shared yesterday and today. Thank you

You are the prayer angel for sure Diana. Prayers are being sent up to these two families in need. So sorry about your school mate's hubby passing away. Hope the power of prayer will help all of them. Happy New Week.

Linda said...

No, we do not know what the future holds. Amber and I had an honest discussion tonight about ageing and life changes and such. Yes, prayer helps with everything and we will pray Glenda and Mary.....

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

Of course prayers will be sent for them. I have had blood clots and I am now on medication for the rest of what life i have left. Mine is caused by a mutation of a gene. She should have this checked out and it is passed down from relatives. She needs a specialists who knows all about this. You can give her my number or email she should get a complete blood work up, not just the standard.

Prayers will be sent for Glenda and Mary and also the lady that lost her husband.

Hugs dear friend,

Diana, Thank you for compliment re: "as long as her name is spoken
she will always be alive."
I do calligraphy and make my own cards using these words only
to express my sympathy.

God has no small blessings
Only BIG blessings

May you be richly blessed as God has blessed me.
I sincerely enjoy your blog.
