I just got back from the hospital from visiting a friend I have not seen in over 15 years. I got word yesterday (you know how news like this gets around) that he was in the hospital and was given about 10 days to live. He has long had problems with drugs and alcohol, since we were teenagers. He is extremely jaundiced, his liver is totally shot. He has a perforated large intestine and is bleeding from his stomach. He may be moved to a nursing home soon, or perhaps hospice. His condition keeps changing from day to day. He’s been in the hospital for over a month now.
I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for Rob, in spite of his problems.
He is Catholic, but I don’t ever recall him going to Mass. Please pray for him, and for his 17 year old daughter who has been by his bedside for days. (Please also pray for the daughter, she told me today that she is “Celtic Pagan” )
So very sad to see a life wasted away like this.
Thank you all,
