  • Please say a prayer for my friend.

    My friend's husband was involved in a car accident yesterday and passed away this morning. Please say a prayer for Patty to have the strength to get her through this horrible time.

    Thank you.
    Stay safe

              Many, many thoughts and prayers. So sorry to hear such sad news. ::big hug::

              Status: Diagnosed October 2006 via cystoscopy with hydrodistention. Max anesthetized bladder capacity only 250 cc's. Mast cells and pinpoint bleeding found.

              Remission for me means less pain for more days than not. Frequency is inevitable with a bladder this tiny! That is ok though. The difference between when I was diagnosed and now, is that I have embraced that fact. Me and the loo, we are one.

                  How tragic! Will begin praying for her now. Grief is such a hard thing, my dad died suddenly in September and just seeing the pain and loneliness my mom experiences breaks my heart daily. But her faith is carrying her thru.
                  I'm so sorry for your friend!
