An update on Aunt Pat


I spoke with my Dad last night (my time).

My Aunt's nun-Catholic friends :-) all took the day off today (your time) and gathered in her room at the hospital, to pray and to bid farewell to her as the medical staff removed her life support.

I'm led to believe it was quite a gaggle. Religious communities can be like that.

After a while, the physician arrived.

Just as the ventilator was about to be disengaged, Aunt Pat opened her eyes.

Shocked beyond description, the doc blurted out, "You must have more work to do, eh?" (I guess the doc is Canadian.)

Aunt Pat nodded.

The machines were not turned off.

I have no idea what this means for the future, but the physician was using the word, "miracle," since my aunt's brain aneurysm had ruptured and she'd been classified as a "5" on the scale of 1 - 5. Her chances of recovery were given as around ten percent.

If nothing else, this is probably a good indicator that a room full of religious women is a loving spiritual force not to be trifled with.

But I've known that for years now.

Please keep the prayers coming, folks!

Blessings and peace to one and all,

Fr. Tim, SJ
