May I ask for your prayers, chants...whatever you have...for my Son


Next Tuesday, January 10th he will be undergoing brain surgery for Trigeminal Neuralgia at 9:30am till??? At Las Palmas Medical hospital, in El Paso, Texas... and I could use all the help I can get. Being a novice, I'm already frazzled and feeling 'undone'....all I seem to be able to come up with is this:


A Healing Prayer:

Oh Great Goddess
Mother of Mercy and Healing
Send the energy of Hygeia
to nourish from Her Sacred Bowl
Send the energy of Brigid
to heal with waters of Her Sacred Well
Send the energy of Demeter
to restore life to withering cells
Send the energy of Quan Yin
to bless the healing with peace
Send Your healing wisdom to his body
to restore its sacred balance
Thank You Great Goddess
Mother of All Life emoticon

Queeny, I don't think any higher power will care at all if you are a novice - it's the intent that matters! Your prayer is beautiful.

I will certainly keep him in my thoughts. I hadn't heard of Trigeminal Neuralgia before but looked it up. Sounds rather unpleasant! emoticon I'll be thinking of the doctors and all the support staff too to help them do the very best job they can.

Queeny, you know I'm right there with you! I've already started to send some white light, as well as healing energy. and I know he'll come through this just fine.

I know you will, too!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

The Surgery actually does not scare me! I [sign in to see URL]? Right? emoticon
I'm worried though, because he has been coming up with excuses to "not see us this week'..."I'm tired, Cali is [sign in to see URL]."
His Dad just looked online at his last semester's [sign in to see URL] expected c's, maybe even D'[sign in to see URL] he got straight F'[sign in to see URL] all 4 classes... emoticon
Was it his head, his [sign in to see URL] immortal "jobs" or something else.
His girlfriend, Cali has horrible nightmares and he literally has been programed to wake up after taking neruo-supressants and Vicodin that would knock out a !@#$ elephant and calm her. WHAT if she is with him the night of the [sign in to see URL] sometimes allow someone to sleep in the [sign in to see URL] she has this screaming freak [sign in to see URL] KNOW how big and strong he [sign in to see URL] will stumble, out of bed, ripping IV'S etc [sign in to see URL] only half conscience to get to [sign in to see URL] KNOW THIS WITH ALL MY HEART! (I've been busting into tears when I let my mind wander there) And it scares the hell out of [sign in to see URL]'m pretty torn over this. I do not want to argue with him over who [sign in to see URL]'s 22 years old. But I can not trust [sign in to see URL] with this care. emoticon
[sign in to see URL] do not want to 'lose' my son or Cali over something that may be [sign in to see URL] a dumb argument to have!
[sign in to see URL] wish Muladzh was [sign in to see URL]'t know [sign in to see URL] just wish he was! emoticon

Queeny, what a position to be in! Perhaps if you talk to the [sign in to see URL] to the [sign in to see URL] the 2 of you, and express to him/her your concerns, they will be able to help. Either by not allowing her to stay, or by alerting the nurses to the situation. His health is more important at this [sign in to see URL] he needs to understand that if he tries to get up after the surgery and pulls IVs out, or whatever, that he's not going to be of any help to her at [sign in to see URL] would he prefer? Maybe approaching him in that [sign in to see URL] sure he understands how important he is to [sign in to see URL] to you or [sign in to see URL] to [sign in to see URL] that his extreme need to protect her needs to be put on the back burner for just a small amount of time. That you want him to be able to protect her ALL the time, but in order for him to do that, he has to take this small amount time to protect himself. It will ultimately be up to him and the doctor/nurses if she stays or not, but if the medical professionals know in advance what may happen, then it may take the ultimate decision out of his hands and hers as well.
I do think you owe it to yourself and to Chris to talk to him about it first, and foremost. Without Cali being there if at all [sign in to see URL] her on a store run or something if you have to. You know where he [sign in to see URL] go. He may be a lot more scared than he's letting on, and he's afraid to see you or his Dad because he may think it could be the last time. Or, maybe he's afraid of the fear he'll see in his parent's eyes. You could guess till the sun stops shining as to his [sign in to see URL] only way you'll ever know for sure is if he tells [sign in to see URL] do talk to him. This is important. emoticon emoticon

They live together, and she never leaves his side. His Dad thinks he maybe drinking as well. With those [sign in to see URL] had hoped the fear the neurologist put into him was enough.
I may 'try' to talk to the doctor. But here we rarely see them. They (the nurses)take the patient on a gurney out of the room and that is the last time you see them. SOMETIMES the doctor will come in after the [sign in to see URL] hours later (they are over-booked down here) and tell you how things went. But Cali will be with us the whole time.
[sign in to see URL]'ve texted him, and her about 4 times in the last 2 days, letting them know how important it was that we get together and show them where we are staying from SUNDAY [sign in to see URL] find out the exact route to the hospital and how long it will take during Tuesdays mornings rush [sign in to see URL] had hubby text him to "stop ignoring your Mother's texts"...LOL
But Cali and I texted yesterday about how important it was that he was on a schedule way before [sign in to see URL] said she would have him in bed by 10pm and up by 8am for the last 3 weeks (she did not!)....then she suddenly textes me...."Don't get mad at [sign in to see URL] had nightmares last [sign in to see URL] are just now going to bed." This was at 6:30AM yesterday! I sort of chewed her butt [sign in to see URL] suppose they could be mad at [sign in to see URL] damn it, this is important and they need to act like adults. emoticon

 emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

The thing [sign in to see URL] are [sign in to see URL] sometimes the best thing you can do, no matter how much it hurts, is to just let things be.

This coming from a mother who's had to let go more than once and let them make some of the stupidist mistakes of their [sign in to see URL] to the point of that life being threatened. VERY hard to just stand [sign in to see URL] sometimes it's what is needed.
Just let him know how much you love him, and leave it at that. Google the hospital and the campground to get a map for yourselves. Be there for the surgery, but he's beyond having to have Mom and Dad's [sign in to see URL]'ll do what he wants. I won't say it'll be [sign in to see URL] then, when has being a parent ever truly been easy when it was this important???

And, I sure hope he's not drinking!

Thing is Dad is paying the [sign in to see URL] is on our Tri-care. Not sure if that makes a difference in who says what or not.

But, I do believe you are right. At least if he does what I explained [sign in to see URL] will be in a hospital and hopefully that will be enough.

I hope he's not drinking either. [sign in to see URL] runs in my [sign in to see URL] [sign in to see URL] Sister denies she's drinking again (after passing out and ending up in the ER with a split skull) but she is, I can tell when we talk and the Goddess knows I was, am and will always be an alcoholic! That is why I never, ever touch a [sign in to see URL] sometimes is sure is tempting.
When he went off to college I explained it to him about his family and how easily we can become addicted..... emoticon
 
But I had to learn the hard [sign in to see URL] Earth/Goddess saved [sign in to see URL] only worry that those F's and if he is drinking and not caring about college, that his 'career' is lost. Both Lawyer and law enforcement.... emoticon

But as for this [sign in to see URL] I MAY NOT BE BACK ON LINE AGAIN UNTIL AT LEAST MONDAY MORNING if my internet works in new [sign in to see URL] [sign in to see URL] possibly as late as the [sign in to see URL] WILL TRY TO GET [sign in to see URL] let you all know how things go. emoticon

HOLD DOWN THE FORT FOR ME.... emoticon

And THANK YOU [sign in to see URL] more than words can express! emoticon

Ah, I will certainly change my focus and energies on this issue now with this explanation. I have a feeling that even if your son and/or Cali are acting a bit immature now, nothing like a surgery and hospital stay to make everyone shape up. Even if he's not taking it 'seriously' right now, see how things go after the surgery. Hopefully Cali will know she shouldn't be in the room with him at night. Could you suggest it to her? Especially after the recent text about keeping him up until 6:30 AM?!?!

We'll see you when you get established at the new place!

I'll try to talk to her...."IF" they ever call us back. If not we'll just have to show up on the day of the surgery! And ask the Goddess to get his ass there on time (they were to stay with us in the RV on the night before, because they have to have him there by 6:30am)! emoticon
