Going Cyberless – Vacation time!

Edited to add (Thursday afternoon): please pray. Due to the NHS sending me a further delayed appointment for Wonderboy to be seen at the hospital on the 27th August instead of the 6th of August, I spent 45 mins on the phone speaking to 5 different hospital secretaries and managed to get Wonder boy an emergency appointment for tomorrow at 9.30am. Please pray for a good meeting with the specialist so that we know what we are dealing with here! We are due to go on our holidays on Saturday morning and i don’t know if that is going to be affected, i suppose it just depends on how things go tomorrow. Please please please pray for a good outcome to the appointment. and that we might have a diagnosis, and yes, too….that we have the strength to deal with whatever it is.

I’m going to go on my holidays/vacation early Saturday morning and won’t have time to put up another blog post between now and then as there is so much to be done in preparation, and only me to do it – I will still blog visit and respond to comments and emails as time allows though!

Whether I make it to Wales on Saturday is anybody’s guess since I know how to get on the A500 and I know the way to my destination once i’m into Wales, but I have a dicky,tricky, unpredicatble, Sat Nav that chooses when to speak and when not to and I can’t look at road signs and the road simultanously….just can’t do it….so since I only know the first 10 minutes of my journey and the last 20 minutes of my journey, I might just end up in Scotland by the time Saturday evening rolls around.

Anyway, just wanted to say thanks so much for your support in recent days. I’m thinking particularly of your prayers for Steve, my daughters father – those who haven’t read about him already can read about him HERE and see the Youtube video I made in tribute to him HERE. I would especially appreciate your prayers for Steve on the anniversary of his death, on Monday the 21st of July. Many thanks for your kindness.

I would also like to say a BIG thank you to all who commented and sent messages to congratulate me on my 4 Year Blogging Anniversary…see my 4th Anniversary post HERE. The post kind of turned into the story of my conversion to Catholicism, but that’s okay with me if it’s okay with you 🙂

Rightio, all that’s left to say is please keep my son, Wonderboy in your prayers, as when we get back home after the holidays, we go to see the specialist about his blood problems almost straight away. I’m really looking forward to us all having a break, Wonderboy will celebrate his 13th birthday while we are away too so that should be a lot of fun.

I likely won’t have internet access while away and though I did think about putting up some automated posts in my absence, I decided against it…and anyway, I’m sure i’ll have LOTS to share with you on my return home.

I will be thinking of you and remembering you in my prayers.

Be safe, be well, and please pray I find my way to Wales!

P.S. Please pray for Mario who just wrote in one of my comboxes:

“Please pray for me as I too have been saying the Novena to St Martha for about 6 weeks now. I would like to ask you to pray for and with me to get a new job before this month end as the contract has come to an end.

I am real need PLEASE


P.P.S I realise that this post is ‘please pray’ this and ‘please pray’ that, but i know you’re a lovely charitable bunch o people, so I know you won’t mind, or at least, I hope you won’t 🙂

  9. …Heavenly Father, I pray for my Sister in Christ, and “Wonder Boy”. I pray firstly that they feel You near. Provide Your the comfort, Lord, to sense You, to feel You, to be assured and reassured of Your power, grace, strength, and care.

    Secondly, Lord, I pray that You may bless the medical staff with wisdom. Guide them as they work so they see what needs be done. May they follow Your will, that they be wise with Your wisdom.

    Lastly, Lord, I pray that Your will be done. We know that You always work everything to good for those who love You. Ann love You. May You work in this, Your will be done, that Your good is there.

    Will, Your prayer for us is absolutely beautiful. I’m so touched to read it as i have just woken up and wonder how i’m going to get through the day, wondering if we might her the worst possible news.

    You, my friend, always have my prayers. I don’t write them as eloquently as you do, but i pray them from the heart like you do. I will pray for you today, i certainly shall. May God give us both the strength to accept and deal with whatever this day holds.

    Praying for all your family’s intentions.

  20. March Hare says:

    Hope the holiday was truly that!

    Thanks, too, for the birthday wishes! I celebrated at Girl Scout camp (I volunteered to be a counselor for the week). I find I get on well with 11-13 y.o. girls if I’m not related to them. 🙂

    Congratulations on four years of blogging. Four years! Time flies, doesn’t it?

    And, lastly, my prayers for Wonderboy. Illness is never easy, especially when it’s one of your children!

    All the best,
    March Hare

  21. Owen says:

    I’ve been away – am away now but checking in – and coming to this, I think, a week later. I am grateful God is outside of and not limited as we are to linear time.

    Lord, hear our prayer for Wonderboy. Holy Mother, bring to heart and mind for Deb the peace of your Son, our Lord, that passes understanding.

  22. Sarah says:

    Enjoy your hols and know we’re praying for all of you!!

  23. Karen says:

    I’ve been praying that everything is going well for you on your vacation, and that the wonderboy is in no discomfort or distress right now.

  24. Owen says:

    Still praying.

  25. Alexa says:

    Been including WB in our prayers nightly – even tho’ I haven’t left a comment, Deb.
    I even left his name at the Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes in Maryland while we were on our vacation… and lit a candle.

    God bless,
