Your Prayers Please for MOTUS AD

[Clairifcation: I am fine. I was calling for prayers for MOTUS  (item at the link below)who has been undergoing some extreme moments in the battle against cancer. Prayers there please. Repeat: I’m fine. I regret this item was not clearer. — Gerard]

MOTUS A.D.: In The Infamous Words Of Rosana Rosana Dana, “It’s Always Something” ||  reports: I was admitted at 11:00 pm Monday, 12 hours after arriving at the ER, dripped until Wednesday evening at which time I was determined to have reached a “therapeutic” level of blood thinner. I was released and sent home with oral blood thinners which will be a permanent addition to my drug protocol. I was happy to relinquish my room to some poor soul still lying on a stretcher in a hallway somewhere .

I was initially told that the clot could have caused heart damage due to the excess pressure it placed on the heart, but they seem to have determined that was not the case, thankfully. Once again, I owe a huge thank you to everyone here who has been soliciting the Good Lord on my behalf. I am truly grateful, thankful and blessed for your continuing prayers.

      You’re a good man, Jack. Thanks.

      Thank you. I am sorry I was not clearer above, but thank you just the same.

    Prayers are with you. Getting old sucks sometimes but it beats the alternative.

    • Vanderleun August 7, 2022, 11:03 AM

      Thank you for the love. I am fine. I made a mistake in the item.

    If your not sick, who is?

      MOTUS has a brain tumor. She has been one of my daily stops for a long time. Great gal and much wittier than I. See Gerard’s link to MOTUS AD.

    I suffered through the same thing … and got through it with some help from above. The long-term cost is being a lifer on 120mg lovenox injections twice a day with a continued risk of PE from DVT. Had a couple already. Not fun. Hoss Cartwright died of one. No warning signs to speak of.
    Doctors told me I had a 40% chance of coming out of surgery; not much better getting through 8 months of chemo. My short-term memory is shot; I don’t remember most of that period.
    I’m not seeking pity or sympathy; I’m an example of literally crossing a valley of death and coming out the other side. It can happen; it was almost 20 years ago for me, even the insurance companies think I’m “cured”. Not convinced I do though.

    K, I only survived a nearly fatal case of sepsis. I never came all the way back. Part of my mind is gone, but maybe it wasn’t that great of a part. I am having way more fun now.
    God bless you.

    And like everyday, I commend our beloved friend MOTUS to the Lord of Heaven and earth.

      Oh, I hope it’s not time for her to meet her Lord just yet.
