Good morning everyone.  Didn't know what to post today, but after a stressful evening last night, I know what I have to post about.  We woke up last night at around midnight by someone yelling and pounding on our front door.  It was my neighbor's son.  His father was having some kind of seizure and they couldn't hold him down.  I just remember my husband jumping out of bed, I think that was what really woke me up.  Next thing I know we are across the street in our best friend's house and there is our neighbor is in the middle of seizure, eyes rolled back and foaming at the mouth.  His wife frantically calling 911, and his sons and my husband yelling at him to breathe and not fight.  They got him on his side and tried to keep him from hurting himself.  After what seemed like 20 minutes (I'm sure it wasn't that long) the ambulance arrived.  I followed to the hospital and the sons waited for their aunt to drive to take them there.  Our neighbor suffers from a brain injury, he fell off of a balcony 12 years ago, and is disabled, its amazing he is still alive.  So today I will be back at the hospital, and I am going to ask for something very personal.  Whichever way you pray, or to whom you pray, please send loving light and thoughts to my friend, his name is Joe.  I'm off to try and get in to the hospital before official visiting hours.  Thank you all.

Blessed Be.


  1. We'll be lighting a candle here. Your family and theirs will be in my thoughts.

  2. My thoughts will be with him. Hope he recovers soon.

  3. I'm late on reading, but if you still need prayers I'll light a candle for you. Is he okay?
