Praying again for Bob

posted by xscot mcknight

From Linda: Bob’s bloodwork came back ok, but he now has a more serious problem now. Fri in the middle of the night (of course!) his BP surged very high…so high we were ready to go to the ER again since last time it was this high, he was lifeflighted to Cleveland.
Anyway, it went down slightly, the MD on call (not his) had him take some more meds…it still is too high, and no one knows why. After he got a run around from the clinic, and his cardiologist is out of town, I called again and insisted someone talk to him. We are waiting now for the cardiologist to call. Something is not right, since his BP has been perfectly low on very little meds since surgery; now it’s high on even more meds.
Sooo….please pray God will protect him again as the medical system is so frustrating! Pray this will be nothing serious, but that they will look for the cause and not just give him more meds. He is quite discouraged; we both are just so tired in every way of this ongoing strain…We thought we were on the road to getting back to normal, and that seems to not be the case. Thanks so much for all your continued concern!

For Linda, I don’t know you, but I hear your concern about navigating the frustrating waters of the medical system. I will pray for your peace and clarity as well as wisdom and focus for the medical providers. In the meantime, Linda, please keep notes on dates, times and whom you contact on Bob’s behalf. Note the information you provided as well as the response. If at all possible, take a family member with you—or a trusted friend–to be another set of eyes and ears when you meet with providers during this time of stress. Peace to you!

For this family, may they know in ever increasing measure the Peace of Christ, the health given by the Creator of our frames, the life power of the Spirit who raised Christ from the dead, and the love given by the people of God.
+Lord hear our prayers.

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Almost Christian 4
Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
