Anybody have a miracle they can spare? February 29, 2012

Posted by Elizabeth Schechter in Boosting the signal, Can-2012-be-over-now?.

I have a friend, a SAHM with a lovely little boy who just turned two. Monday morning, minutes before her husband left for work, Susan collapsed. When they got her to the hospital, they discovered that she’d had a massive stroke. They tried to control the swelling with medication, and when that didn’t work, they removed part of her skull. She’s in critical condition, and has not regained consciousness since she collapsed Monday morning.

Susan is 32.

I’m still trying to get my brain around this. Our local group is rallying around her family, with people making sure that food and childcare are covered. But the shock runs really deep, and all week long, we’ve been spreading the word, asking — no, BEGGING — for prayers.

I just realized… I have this platform. Why the HELL aren’t I using it?

So please, do whatever it is that you do, for Susan. If you wish, WISH. If you pray, PRAY. If you commune with the Flying Spaghetti Monster, tell Him I said hi. Whatever you do, please DO!

For Susan.

When two or more gather in my ask it shall be done. So In Jesus’ Name it shall be done. I am sending my prayers as well. Amen. Now sit back and let God work the miracle.

My prayers are with Susan.

Mi sheberakh avoteinu mekor habrakha l’imoteinu
May the Source of strength
Who blessed the ones before us
Help us find the courage
To make our lives a blessing,
And let us say: Amen.
Mi sheberakh imoteinu mekor habrakha l’avoteinu
Bless those in need of healing With refuah shleima:
The renewal of body,
The renewal of spirit,
And let us say: Amen

This is actually a beautiful song we sing every Saturday morning at synagogue: http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=debbie%20friedman%20mi%20shebeirach&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CCkQtwIwAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DqXm3lX19nQg&ei=1N1OT_6GLcTX0QHW15m0DQ&usg=AFQjCNHFJh5WnU2_QdLhvzlTtn2DYXCTYQ

All of the above: done.
Susan, may you heal. May your brain, body and spirit be whole. May your family see the light in your eyes and once again hear your laughter & feel your love.

I wish sometimes, I pray others; for Susan and her family, my family and I will do both, because we know that when people work together, miracles CAN happen.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Susan’s family. So sad this happened to someone so young.

Take care,
Sidney Ayers
