Hi Everyone,

I spoke with Carol this evening and she asked me to put a post in on her behalf. She said to let everyone know that she'll not be around the forum for a bit. Her father Don, has had a stroke and doesn't know whats going on around him. Carol asked that you'd pray for both her Mother, Father and Carol.

She's got so much going on with her transplant work up and now this with her Dad. (((((hugs))))) Carol, I'll keep you and your parents in my daily prayers. Hoping that this bad news doesn't spin you off into a terrible flare. Keep us posted when you can.

Hi Barb,

Please let Carol know that she is in my prayers each and everyday and that I will be adding her Mom and Dad to my prayers list as well. Boy, does she ever need a break! She has such a huge load on her shoulders right now with the tests and what not she is going through trying to qualify for the lung transplant and now this added stress, my God send her some extra love and care!

Thanks for passing the news along Barb!

Thanks Barbara!

(((((((((( Carol ))))))))))

Prayers for your you, your Dad and your Mom. I hope this is one of those strokes that pretty much rights itself in a couple days. How scary for you and your parents!

Carol, give it all to God . . . picture in your mind, that you are placing the three of you in His mighty palm. (for those of you who are gasping right now. . . I have talked to Carol and we are prayer sisters, so this post will not offend her).

Some hot tea for you sis. I'll be praying for you daily.

(((Oh Carol))) I'm so sorry to hear about your Dad. My Dad (83) almost died last year and he became very disoriented. Although it took lots of effort and prayers for him to get well, he did. I pray that your Dad gets well too. Love, Donna

Carol, I'm praying for you and your dad and your family. I know how hard it is to deal with a stroke. You have so much going on, and I pray that God would wrap his arms around you.  Give all your burdens to Jesus.  His yolk is light.
Lots of love,
