Ray is in the Hospital!

Please pray for our friend, Ray from MN. He's in the hospital with pneumonia. Terry has some info.

Update: 5/10/10 9:15 p.m.: Just got home from visiting Ray. He is still using oxygen and the nebulizer and he sounds very phlegmy in his voice and coughing (which is frequent). However, he sat up during our entire visit and his temp, which was high yesterday, is down to normal. Ray was VERY happy to read that people are praying for him. I printed out the comments to the blog posts, from several blogs, that mentioned he was hospitalized and took them with me to the hospital and left them with him. Terry went to see him today and griped to Ray that at least they could've given him a nice robe to wear! What do our taxes pay for?!? Classic Ter. (kidding). Also, Swissmiss (come back, Swissy!) and her son paid him a visit and she brought him some treats! A priest has visited him and he was Anointed. Also, he received Communion on Sunday. As Catholics we need to, and I'm being totally serious, make sure our loved ones are as well taken care of spiritually in hospital as they are physically.

Update 5/12/10 5:50 a.m.:
Ray is home from the hospital!!! I spoke to him last night. I was so happy I forgot to update the blog! He is resting but he is still pretty phlegmy

Gette: I will. I'll probably go visit him tomorrow. I tried to call tonight but couldn't get thru to his room.

Cathy - thanks for the update on Ray. Tell him the crazy blogger from Michigan is praying for him. Scripture says that the prayers of a righteous man availeth much - but I'm hoping heaven makes an exception in my case this time around!

Thanks for updates, Cath. He's not up to blogging yet this morning, I see. What's with that?
