from Deacon-elect Ambrose Augustine
My brothers and sisters, greetings to you all.
I am sending this message on behalf of our Most Rev. Father Jude~Thaddeuss of Prompt~Succor because he is currently unable to do so.
After leaving my house at about 4am this morning, after much urging from myself, his Holy Guardian Angel (Jules), and the Holy Spirit of God (or "Spook" as he would say), our beloved Father Fozy checked himself into St. Joe Hospital. The swelling in his legs has been progressively getting worse and the persistent pain in his side after his perceived anxiety attack has not gone away.
I found out a few hours ago that he has apparantly been suffering from conjestive heart failure. He has informed me that the doctors have said they don't think he's going to need surgery, but needless to say, he has asked that we all keep him in our prayers over the next few weeks to follow, particularly the next 3 or 4 days when they will be needed the most. He said he is feeling a bit better, though he hasn't been allowed to smoke. He thus has a migrane. He says they have given him a nicotine patch, but "it's just not the same!" Good ol' Father Fozy, even filled with joy and humor during the most troubling times. I expect, though, that this means he will be cutting back on that chimney smoking!
I will attempt to post updates here as I receive them, and let you all know when he is prepared to start receiving visitors. Thank you all for your prayers and support. If you need to reach me directly, I may be emailed at: email@example.com
Peace and compassion to you all, always.
I WOULD LIKE TO THANK DEACON ELECT AUGUSTINE FOR FORWARDING THE LAST MESSAGE IN MY STEED. AND YES, THIS IS A VALIDATION THAT CURT IS GOING TO BE A DEACON NOT JUST FOR MY APOSTOLIC SERVICE AREA BUT ALSO WITH THE ORTHODOX CATHOLIC CHURCH OF AMERICA. SEND HIM YOUR CONGRADULATIONS TO firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHAT I HAD WAS A COMBINATION, STRESS INDUCED, CONJESTIVE HEART FALIURE AND RENAL (KIDNEYS) FALIURE. THEY ARE NOT SURE WHAT CAME FIRST OR IF THEY BOTH HAPPENNED IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE OTHER. THEY LET ME GO EARLY, AS MY BLOOD PRESSURE HAS SOMEWHAT RETURNED TO NORMAL, I AM NOT 100 PERCENT YET AND DONT EXPECT TO BE FOR AWHILE. BUT I AM HOME AND RESTING (EXCEPT FOR RIGHT NOW).
a personal thank you
WITH ALL THE LOVE AND PRAYERS THROWN AROUND YESTERDAY AND TODAY, IT DID APPARRENTLY GOOD THINGS, QUICKLY AND I DID FEEL THE EFFECTS OF YOUR PRAYERS AND POSITIVE THOUGHTS AND ATTEMPTS TO SEE ME AFTER VISITING HOURS *wink.
I DO LOVE YOU ALL VERY MUCH AND THANK GOD FOR YOU EACH AND EVERY DAY. IT IS FOR YOU THAT I HAVE THE PRIVILAGE OF LIVING AND MOVING AND AM HONOURED TO BE A PRESENCE IN EACH OF YOUR LIVES AND LONGINGS OF THE HEART.
Y'ALL TRULY DO KEEP ME YOUNG! KEEP IT COMING I NEED TO DE AGE BY TEN MORE YEARS; BUT REMEMBER TO DO IT SLOWLY, MY INNER BAPTIST BLACK WOMAN DON'T SASH~SHAY LIKE SHE USED TO!
LOVE, BLESSINGS AND BEAR HUGS AND LICKS,
FR. FOZY BEAR
