Prayer requests!

Today I have no great blog entry, just prayer requests. Anne has been admitted with high blood pressure (Pregnancy induced hypertension is the medical term) and is in the ward. The pressure is still on the borderline high range, so if the pressures stay high – her Obstetrician Doctor Jiji may induce the labour, without waiting till the 17th when Koby is actually due. Please keep us in prayer, Anne is well now sitting around and reading books in the ward. She’s actually threatening to walk down to the Obstetric ward and do some work. My pediatric surgery ward is just a floor below where Anne is admitted, I am on 24 hour duty tomorrow, but I can keep popping in – it’s just ten seconds away. How God works things out! My normal ward would have been the other end of hospital! Here are pitures of the "expectant father and mother!", Z z z z .. .. passing time in the ward.

Another Aunty, who I had mentioned in the past, whose son in law had read the Blog and brought her to CMC, is not doing too well. They have a diagnosis of AML (Leukemia), and since she is quite elderly, a high mortality is a possibility if she chooses to go through Chemo. Palliation is an option, but from what I have come to know her by, she is a fighter. Please keep her – Mrs. Menon in your prayers.

A new friend I have made on the Blog, is battling Spinal Muscular atrophy – Pranay is a 2 year old who is battling SMA, his mother had read my Blog and got in touch with me. He is a fighter, just like me (his mother Kavitha e-mailed to say).. SMA is a difficult disease both for the children and the care givers in Pranay’s case his dedicated parents. Here is a link to a short write up on him. Keep in in your prayers too. In the last few months, I have come to realize that through prayer there is nothing that God can’t do, and that there is no weapon greater than prayer.

Actually there is a really cute wall poster in Anne's ward room - "Before you go to sleep, hand over all your cares to God - He's up all night anyway!"

A beautiful gesture...you can rest assured Mrs. Menon and Pranay have been remembered in prayer by more people that they can ever imagine.
Its amazing how you see beyond your difficulties and try to bring hope to other people. You , Anne & koby will be truly blessed.

It is better to take refuge in the Lord
Than to trust in Man.
It is better to take refuge in the Lord
Than to trust in princes.
Psalms 118:8,9.

We are praying for you ..and your requests.

The Lord's loving kindness indeed never cease...Lam 3:22

Dear Jesus,

You said "Ask & you shall receive, seek & you shall find, knock & it shall be opened." Today I ask, seek & knock on behalf of Tarun & Anne - that You their healer may bless them with the abundant life You came to give us.

May only Your will be done in their lives. And may You give them the grace to accept that, no matter what it is.

Be blessed you guys :)
