Kevin Cho, MD, whose blog is listed in the bottom right here, has posted a warning about fires and burns in medical settings. One caution caught my eye as I think some here may want to take care. It turns out that any skin patch, like the ones used for pain meds and to stop smoking, can cause a burn on your skin while you're getting an MRI. To avoid this, simply remove patches before having an MRI. For more information, check his post and the Wall Street Journal article Dr Cho mentions in his post.

Hi all! I was wondering if we could get a show of hands as to how many folks will be participating and what time zone you are in? We might need to adjust the schedule a bit to accommodate some folks. Either that, or we can hold two studies at different times. Let us know 1. If you will be attending and 2. your time zone and 3. if there might be a second time that would work better for you!

We will be having our first book study based on Hannah Hurnard's allegory of Christian life "Hind's Feed on High Places." We plan for the study to start at 9 pm Eastern, 8 pm Central, 7 pm Mountain, 6 pm Pacific time. We will be creating a special room for the study so there won't be interruptions, and those that don't care to participate can still enjoy the main room. The study will last a minimum of 7 weeks and we will have transcripts available if you miss a session. Amazon carries the book. (It's not very expensive new and you can buy used ones as well.) If you want to participate, but can't afford the book, let one of the admins know and we'll see what we can do to help out. We'll be posting "lesson plans" for each session to guide you as you read. Expect the study to last about an hour! We look forward to seeing you there as we travel to the High Places! Blessings! deni aka QuietSoul51

Apple's grandpa died last night. He had fluid around his heart and then his lungs started filling with fluid over the weekend. He was taken to the hospital and put on oxygen. He felt better after a while and they took him off the oxygen, but he then got worse again yesterday. He was put back on oxygen, but late last night, he took a turn for the worse about 12:40 am and passed away at 12:50 am.
Please pray for her and her family.

Dave was in the chat room earlier asking for prayer. He was at the doctor's today and was diagnosed with sinusitis and bronchitis and is now on antibiotics. He also has costrochronditis, arthritis around his sternum and ribs; he's getting a pain med for this and will be seeing a pain specialist for shots to numb his chest and ribs. He also needs to see a dermatologist for some kind of rash he has on his face and forehead.
Dave has a lot of pain, normally; it sounds like it's gotten worse. He says he expects to be offline for a while. Please pray for him.

Please be in prayer for Lynne as she has to make a decision about the biopsy on her lung. Her choices are an open chest biopsy - where they would take the entire right lung as the upper part of the lung is mass filled - if it turns out to be cancerous. Her option is to wait and have another CT scan in 4 weeks and see if the mass decreases. She needs wisdom about making the right decision. Thank you for your prayers.
Please pray for AppleofHisEye's sister, Steph. She has the most aggressive form of MS and has become increasingly disabled in the last few months. She is unable to even walk now and her mom needed Apple to help her with Steph this morning.
Steph is going to the doctor next week to see if she can get a better kind of medicine on Tuesday.
The picture below is another that Apple made; the baby is a new litle cousin of hers.

While Lynne got good results from her initial biopsy - the mass is still in her lung. It appears that there is a very real possibility that it will need a biopsy. It was so inflamed they were not able to get to it the last time. Pray for wisdom for the doctors as they decide what to do and for peace for Lynne as she goes through this. Thanks! deni
