Going to an Eating Disorders Hospital


Hello my Brothers and Sisters in Christ

Thank you so much everyone for all of your prayers.

Mentally I should not be doing well, but I have improved.

I explain that all by your intercessory prayers.

I watched Grace MacKinnon on EWTN LIVE this week. She talked about her life in a wheelchair helping others. And I felt hope.

So if I do end up in a wheelchair, I know that I will still have all of the wonderful spiritual friends which I have met on here.

And whatever happens, I believe I will be okay.

Although I am not overeating, my weight is very very high and I do need to lose weight – both for the bariatric surgery and any additional back surgery.

Physically I am rapidly deteriorating. So I continue to ask for your prayers.

So I will probably be away for the rest of the month starting next Thursday so I still wanted to ask everyone for your continued prayers.

I would be so grateful if someone next week were to start another prayer thread for me. It gives me such comfort in the storm.

Also, my major concern now is my thoracic spine. When I even stand my stomach and abdomen are very weak. There are herniations there pushing up against teh spinal cord which are causing me great anguish.

And my legs are so terribly rigid right up into my groin/under my stomach.

Anyway, I will get going.

And as always I pray fervently for everyone who even visits this website.

Thank you so very very much.

Your Brother in Christ,


PS I am very scared about going to the hospital again but hopefully this one will help me to lose weight.


Jesus please be merciful to Vito, and lead him to good health and happiness. Please keep his love centred on You as he continues to strive towards health. Thank You, Jesus

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, look kindly upon us, and increase Your mercy in us, so that in difficult moments we might not despair, nor become despondent, but with great confidence, submit ourselves to Your Holy Will, which is Love and Mercy itself.
