Prayer Request Update

Prayer Request Update

Thank you to everyone who has said a prayer for my sister’s friend, Fred.

Fred died at 3:15 this afternoon, at the hour of mercy. Please continue to pray for the repose of his soul and the consolation of his bereft friends and family.

Kyrie eleison, Christe eleison, Kyrie eleison.
Pie Jesu Domine, dona eis requiem; et lux perpetua luceat eis.

  • Thanks, Katherine, she was running and jumping on the way to Mass this morning, so I think all is well. I’ll keep an eye on it though just in case it does have a fragment left. We also have now instituted a must wear shoes rule… not that I think it will be hard to enforce. Nothing like pain to teach a lesson!

  • Oh the wonders of motherhood.  How many “hats” can you wear?  Soaking thee foot should draw any remnants of the splinter out.  Just playing in a kiddie pool or taking her usual bath every night should do it .  Keep an eye on it too.  Shoe rule is nice which I can’t seem to get Evy to take up.  Love and blessings to all of you

  • I have a hard time enforcing the shoes rule too since I go barefoot every chance I get. Hard to require of her what I don’t do myself.

  • poor darling! i’m glad the hugs are so healing…
    and too bad the magic socks don’t have a hard sole, that could be a shield without wearing shoes…

    Yup, here I sit with barefeet and sharp fragments of plaster and tile all around due to the bathrooms and den re-modeling… . yet I can’t stand shoes inside myself.

  • Melanie,

    Cecilia did the same thing in June….huge splinter. Most of it broke off though as she ran and fussed. We tried soaking her foot and trying to get out any remaining pieces, but it went in at a deep angle and was behind a lot of skin such that I would have really needed to cut her foot to get it, if there was anything there. I wasn’t sure if there was more or just black and blue or maybe even dried blood.

    Since she could walk and run on it the next day, we decided to wait and sure enough it began blistering up. It took 3 or 4 weeks, but when the blister got big enough and began bothering her, we popped it and out came another 1/2 inch splinter that had been buried in her foot all that time.

    Doesn’t it stun you a foot so small could have such big splinters?

    Her foot is completely healed but she also did the sympathy pains with the wrong foot and STILL tells us she has a boo-boo on the correct foot and asks us to rub it. We are still working on stopping that by telling her that if it still hurts we will need to take her to the doctor. We get a prompt “Done, Doctor.” and the request vanishes. I think it will just take some time.

    After that though, we have insisted she always have shoes on when on the deck – her sneakers or her pool shoes if she is playing with the inflatable pool – but something.

    Hope Bella’s foot is feeling better soon.
