Amber did very well with her head pressure numbers. However, her blood pressure was on the high end throughout the day. They increased her sedation to help relax her more to try to bring it down. We are hoping she can get a restful night.
Tonight was the Saint Joseph healing prayer service for Amber. At 7:15PM, Matt and I said prayers with Amber. We also said a special prayer tonight, a prayer to Saint Peregrine, Patron Saint of persons suffering with cancer. This Saint was brought to my attention today by our very nice custodian, Maria.
Thank you all for taking the time and energy to go out to St. Mary’s to pray for our very sick little girl. That means the world…
In case you would like to say a prayer to Saint Peregrine:
O great St. Peregrine, you have been called “The Mighty,” “The Wonder-Worker,” because of the numerous miracles which you have obtained from God for those who have had recourse to you.
For so many years you bore in your own flesh this cancerous disease that destroys the very fibre of our being, and who had recourse to the source of all grace when the power of man could do no more. You were favoured with the vision of Jesus coming down from His Cross to heal your affliction. Ask of God and Our Lady, the cure of the sick whom we entrust to you.
(Pause here and silently recall the names of the sick for whom you are praying)
Aided in this way by your powerful intercession, we shall sing to God, now and for all eternity, a song of gratitude for His great goodness and mercy.
