Prayers needed

Gary has injured his shoulder and is in quite a bit of pain. He went to the doctor yesterday and tomorrow will have an MRI. This is a critical situation for us. If he can't work at Whole Foods we lose our insurance. He works another job as an internet programmer for a company in Austin and they haven't been able to pay him since February. This economy is sucking hard.

Please pray that he can work at least light duty. He has vacation hours built up and if he needs to rest the shoulder give him the good sense to take some time off. He is saving all his vacation time now to help me.

I hate to say it but we really need help. I wrote my priest today and asked if there are some people who will bring us meals. Frankly, the house can go to hell, I just want him to be okay. Please pray that some kind souls will help us over this hump.

It is embarrassing to admit this but I have to share the truth with you all.

Love, Roseann

Oh, Roseann, this is the pits! If I lived near, I would help. But prayers are still ascending for you both!

Sheez, Roseann. Praying hard that the shoulder heals quickly. Not to mention that you can get that transplant. {{{Roseann}}}

It makes me so angry to read that people can lose insurance when they're out of work!
Prayers for you both!!

Roseann, prayers for both you and Gary. I wish I could do more, too. I hope that the meals start coming and that Gary can continue to work light duties or take time off, whichever is best to bring about healing for his shoulder.

Don't be embarrassed, either. We all need to ask for help sometimes.

Just a thought, but would you be eligible for Meals on Wheels?

Roseann... please contact me at patricia279@centurytel.net. You've been in my prayers for some time, but now there is something tangible I can do for you. I can't be more than 25 miles from you, and my wheels can bring meals. I need to know, please, where you live and what you and Gary would like to eat -- dietary restrictions, preferences,etc. Also, do you have a freezer?

I have been praying for both of you, daily, but had not yet read this. May Light surround you and ways be found to accomplish what is needed.
