My brother that lives in Tucson has been hospitalized again with a mysterious rash, & swelling from the waist down including his private parts. He had had a hernia repair about 5 weeks ago. & they have drawn over 600 cc of fluid from his wound. They found out today he also has MRSA from a urine cutlture. It isn't lookin good for him & I am quite worried being so far away . I ask & plead with you that you pray, & give him all your good thoughts & good wishes, He may have to go into a nursing facility after the crises is over this time. I am worried sick about him, but there is nothing I can do. The MRSA was found in his urine, so I suspect it is in his bladder or all up inside of him. He is quite sedated at this time, so is resting as well as can be expected. I know I have asked this before, but now it has become life threatening, so please, please, pray for his recovery. Thanks to all that care... Mary

Oh Mary Sweetie - It must be so hard having your brother (who I know you love dearly) so far away when he is this ill. I will pray for you both. I pray that God wraps His loving arms around your brother to comfort and heal him as only He can do. If you don't mind we have a family bible study every week and I would like to put him on our prayer list. Take care of yourself Mary and keep us informed on your brothers progress. Sending love and healing thoughts -Terri-

I am so sorry to learn this of his update. I will keep him in my prayers all the day long. You two are close friends besides brother and sister. You must be so upset.
Of course I will keep him, and you in my prayers.
Were you able to speak to his doctor yet? If not, I hope you can today.
I don't know much about MRSA, but what I do know is frightening, yet I will keep hope for him. It sounds dire, but people have recovered quite well from MRSA.
If you need ANYTHING my dear friend, just say the word, and I'll be there for you just like you've always been there for me. I wish I could fly you to where he is, but I don't think the Lara Benevolent Fund holds enough money for it, but will check my balance when the bank is open, if you want that.
Love you lots, and let's talk today, if you have time?

Hi Mary, I will certainly pray for your brother that he has a speedy recovery and has to go through very little pain. It is so hard being away from family when they become ill, you want to give them the support of a loving hug or just hold there hand, but when that is not possible it is so hard. So even though you can not be with him, have you thought about doing a skype call, or buying one of those cards that you can record a message in. Just so he can hear your voice and know that you are thinking of him, even though your far away from him.
So if your brother is sleeping at least you know he is not feeling pain.
Take care Mary, and try not to worry to much. Liz.

Hi hun, i'm so sorry to hear your news. Of course you will both be in my prayers. I hope the prognosis improves and that he is as comfortable as possible. Try to keep your chin up, although i know it must be very hard. Keep us up to date when you have time. Thinking of you x

So much as been said already. Of course, I will be adding you and your family to my prayers. These situations do have a way of making us stronger. While that be of little comfort now, remember this, if you can in times to come when life throws yet another curve ball your way.
I do hope the next wont' be for a long time to come
Even though my loving and good vibes are long distance ones, I am sending them express post!
Love you, dearest Mary, to strength, love and G*d.

More love & white light with good positive vibes coming your way, Mary, from the Great White North! There's so much happening everywhere it seems of late. However, I won't forget about your dear brother. My current prayer list is so extensive that it now wraps around 3 blocks (& a bus shelter). My hubby's going to think I'm actually more religious since it takes me so long now! LOL
Mary, you are such a sweetheart, and I wish you less pain & more happiness!
Love, Wendy :) "Mrs. LiverLips"

Mary, please keep up your wonderful positive thoughts. It has been proven that positive thoughts have had great outcomes on people who didn't even know that others were thinking of them. Fascinating study. I will send him my positive thoughts, but with you being closer to him than I, yours are more important. I dont' want to see " I;m afraid I might lose him this time", etc. Positive! He WILL be fine, I just know it. He has come through before, and although people dread that awful MRSA diagnosis, the human body is an amazing machine capable of healing even the worst infections. I know, I lost half of my 'inerds' to MRSA, but I am fine now. Although it is a long road to healing, the body heals, and with all these positive people who love you, how can he not heal sending him prayers and love!
I hope that I am not coming across (as they say in Yiddish), like a bullabusta, but I so want you to keep up his positive energy also. I truly believe that it works so well, so long as others believe it also. We have had many miracles on this list, and this one will be one too :-) Much love and positive thoughts for you and your brother!! He WILL be ok.

Dearest Mary, I'm so sorry to hear again off your brother's latest illness. Please know he is in my thoughts and prayers, as are you and your family. If there is anything I can do, please let me know. Keep the faith, hon. We are all here for you , and we will certainly keep him in our prayers. Take care, and let me know if you just want to talk. I'm here for you, Mary.
In love & peace,
