Losing hope



I just got back from Philly today.

Spent 5 hours in the ER and then was discharged. Was told I could not be admitted because my inability to walk and losing all strength and major nerve damage was not life threatening.

Maybe so but it sure would require surgery!!!

Surgeon said he could no longer help me. (Why??) Said to look for second opinion from another neurosurgeon at another hospital.e is just washing his hands clean.

He is just washing his hands clean.

Then spent 3 hours with 2 neurologists. Was not given okay for surgery (discectomy) because he did not think my situation was severe enough.

I spend most all my days in bed lying on my side.

Will not anyone listen to me?

Spent night in hotel. Was going to go back to surgeon and beg for surgery or to another hospital’s ER and see if a neurosurgeon there might give me a second opinion and do surgery.

But then I just gave up and took the bus home in the morning.

I am giving up. My tombstone will read “He gave up.”

PLEASE, please pray for me a litle intercessory prayer tonight that in the AM I will go the right doctor and do the right thing.

Whether that means to stay right here or got on a 3 hur bus ride.

My entire legs are denervating so rapidly and I just cannot handle life much longer.

I promise to pray fervently for all who pray for me (and all posters and readers).

One year ago I was one of the happiest people I knew.

I really used to love life.

Thank you!!

Good night



I will be praying a decade of the Rosary for you.

Praying for you my friend. Maybe surgery isnt the answer,maybe there is another way to heal?? Raw foods?



Asking St Jude to assist in your cause.
Praying without ceasing.


Vito, don’t give up, because
God didn’t give up on you! He loves
you so very much that he sent his
son Jesus to die for us.
God has a plan. I pray that his plan
will be revealed to you and that you
witness to all those you meet during
your trips back and forth to hospitals
and doctors. May God grant you peace and comfort.


May Our Lady enfold you in her mantle as she must have comforted Our Lord so often! You’ll be in my prayers.


Jesus, I trust in You to heal the heart and mind and soul and body of Vito.
Jesus, I trust in You for him.


Continuing to pray for you this morning Vito.


Never give up hope, Vito Joseph!
No matter how bad things may appear, now … they
will improve, for you.
Hang tightly onto the hand of Jesus.

Lord Jesus Christ, Thank You for giving Vito Joseph, Your
Healing. For his body & mind. And, for his soul.
By Your Infinit Mercy for Vito Joseph.


You are in my prayers, as well.


Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
