Wonderful recent news that I ‘ve been dying to post, but we ‘ve been “off the grid “at the Dock beach Kinsale where we were holidaying for the past week.
Ten days ago the palliative nurse came. She told me she’d been talking about me with the Professor. They had decided to discharge me from the hospice service if I was willing because I ‘m doing so well.
You can imagine how this news absolutely lifted me! “this is the best confirmation of my well being that I ‘ve ever had!”
Other good news, the replacement eye gaze has arrived! “hip hip, yay!” its much better than the other one as it works more smoothly with less concern about light. Hence, I don’t need to sit in a darkened room to use it. “Fan bloody tastic!”
Finally, other great news.
My lovely brother in law Dave, sent me a newspaper article about a man with the same condition as mine who was completely cured allegedly by praying to Padre Pio. You can guess who I’ve been praying to ever since! Can I suggest if anyone wants to add to this ‘energy’ I’d really appreciate the prayers thanks.
“Well done Donal! I was supposed to meet you when I was first diagnosed. Somebody mentioned you and asked me to pray for you.”
Interestingly, on a recent shopping trip to nearby town, Bandon, a friendly looking elderly man approached us. He asked my sister to take his Padre Pio relic and to bless me with it. After the blessing he spoke of the wonderful healing miracles he had witnessed through this Italian Saint. On leaving, he said he would pray to him for me.
So that’s it folks! It feels so good to report some good news after the last post.
