    Hey Gang, Could You All Spare Some Prayers For My Oldest Daughter?

    Hey Gang,

    While this may not be the right place to post this, I'm going to post it anyway.


    My oldest daughter (Megan / Age 27) suffers from ulcerative colitis and is not doing well.
    To give you a little information about my oldest, she teaches 10th grade English, moderates and coaches the swim team at her school and is a Devout Catholic.
    She's a dedicated wife of two years to her husband Nick who she's been with since the age of 16.
    She also volunteers at the Aquarium of the Americas during her summer break and is involved with Autism Speaks as well.
    In addition, Megan is a published children's book author and one of her books can be found at Barnes & Noble along with Amazon. (The Mermaid of Lake Pontchartrain)

    Again, while this is likely not the best place to post this request, I feel like the Factory Five Family Members Have A Lot Of Faith so that's why I'm asking for your prayers.

    Steve

    Well said. I am with Bob. May God be all youll ever need and bring some good from this horrible ordeal. UC is no joke and I suffered from IBS when I was young and was very sick Thank God I got a healing. I mean a real to life faith healing. I have not suffered from it for decades. God is an ontime God. It may be tomorrow it might be much later in life. We never know whos path she is going to cross with this sickness and bring faith into someone elses world. The Word says he makes all things work together for our good.

    God bless GDG.

    Thanks All,

    Tomorrow, I plan to talk to the Priest that oversees the high school where my daughter works.
    She will be frustrated with her Pop for sure, but Father Charles has control over her workload and I'm sure on better terms with God than this fellow.
    Thanks Again!

    Steve

    Steve,
    Absolutely will be praying for her! God is still in the business of miracles and my wife and I have seen many answers to our prayers! The Bible says that God is the same yesterday, today and forever!
    Lord I lift Megan up to you right now and ask you to send your comfort and your healing in Jesus' powerful name!
    I've seen you heal our son of his cancer and I have seen you heal my sister-in-law of severe neck/spinal problems that the doctors couldn't fix!
    You are a good and loving Father and we ask this in Jesus' name for his glory and his alone!
    Amen..

    We will be praying here in CA, Steve.

    It sounds like she has a really "can do " attitude. I hope she is able to keep her spirit up through all this , Its a huge part of the battle . I have a relative with Crohns disease and have seen the highs and lows . I will definitely be sending her a prayer . She sounds like a very accomplished kid , you gotta be a proud poppa !!!

    Prayers from me as well. I also suffer UC and have recovered from a bad outbreak. I pray she does too. For me, reduced stress, controlled diet, and lots of rest along with meds really helped me recover to a level of toleration. She is in my thoughts.

    Sorry I am a bit late to this thread, Steve, but I absolutely will keep Meghan in our prayers. To quote GearHeadKen, "God is in the Miracle business". Please let Meghan know that there are a bunch of people from all over the country who may not know her, but know God, and know that God loves her and is concerned for her always! May His angels fly even closer to Meghan and your entire family.

    Kevin.

    P.S. This is exactly the place for this request. You are our family, and Meghan by extension. When you rejoice, we party with you! When you are hurting, we are all there to help carry the load as best we can. Just ask!

    UPDATE:

    1. I just got off the phone with Father Charles and he had no idea how rough of shape my daughter is in.
    2. He stated he'd meet with my oldest (On The Q.T.) about her weight loss and health issues.
    3. He'll also put her on his prayer list, but more importantly is watch list.
    4. He plans to meet with her this evening to "See How She's Doing."
